It doesn’t matter if you wear disposable or conventional, we have all the lenses to fit your needs.
Am I a Good Fit for Contact Lenses?
Getting a good fit for your contact lenses begins with a thorough eye exam to determine exactly what prescription you need and identify any preexisting conditions that may interfere with your ability to wear corrective lenses. If you have a high prescription or astigmatism, contact lenses may even provide more enhanced vision correction than glasses. There are many different contact lens materials, however, to enable us to help most patients.
The specialists at Big Bend Family Eye Care will determine which type of lens is best for you based on your lifestyle and the shape and health of your eyes. After the initial examination, our specialists will make any changes in shape, size, or materials needed to ensure you get the best possible fit with your new contact lenses. We will also give you valuable information on caring for your new lenses and proper education about what problems could arise if care is not taken.
