Contact Lens Exams

At Carlson-Tillisch Eye Clinic, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, we will discuss your contact lens options with you to find the best fit for your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, speak with our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.

Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, our doctors determine what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. We use an automated system to make these tests easier for you, and more accurate. 

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, we work with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for you. Even if you suffer from dry eye or allergies, we will work with you to find the best solution. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form.  Specialized contact lenses, such as multifocals, are often a great option for those over the age of 45. Call us if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.

Cosmetic Lenses

Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage any color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Cosmetic lenses are also available to transform your eye color. Call us to speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in contacts with color!
