At Harbison Eye Care, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescriptions are provided by our excellent Optometrists. Our doctors will discuss the various contact lenses offered and which option will best suit your needs. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, speak with our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, our Optometrists will determine what prescription is required to give you the best possible vision. Refractive errors (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism) are evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use either a manual phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Philadelphia Optometrist, call 267-360-6944 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, the doctor works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses best suits your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Different types of contact lenses are available including soft contacts and rigid gas permeable (RGP) contacts. Most contact lenses should not be worn overnight and the doctor will discuss the different replacement schedules during the contact lens fitting. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at 267-360-6944 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
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 at 267-360-6944 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
