Contact Exams in Midland and Odessa
For many people, contact lenses represent a sort of freedom. With a contact lens prescription, improve your vision without making any drastic changes to the way you look. This is one of the reasons why contact lens exams in Midland and Odessa, Texas are one of the most common types of exams performed at Urias Eyecare in Midland, TX.
Contact Lens Exams
These exams are more complex than eyeglass exam since there are a variety of contact lenses available depending on the exact needs of your eyes and whatever lifestyle needs that need to be considered when configuring your contact lens prescription.
When you get a contact lens exam our optometrist in Midland and Odessa will determine the nature of your refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism)and also factor in other eye issues you may have including, allergies, history of eye infections, dry eye which could result in needing hard to fit contacts.
Deciding on Contacts, Glasses, or Both
Although contact lenses are possible in many more situations than they once were, for some, eyeglasses are the right corrective options. After your exam at our optometry clinic in Midland and Odessa, Dr. Urias, our Midland and Odessa optometrist, will discuss your needs to find the right balance of eyeglasses and contact lenses. Eye conditions such as dry eye and astigmatism may mean that daily contacts are taken out more often and a better choice than an extended wear option.
Your Choice for Contact Lenses
For some, contacts are a choice that comes without any vision problems at all, but simply to change eye color temporarily. If this is you, it is still important to see an optometrist in Midland and Odessa TX because of subtle vision issues, and because contacts are classified as medical devices by the FDA, therefore a prescription is necessary to get your lenses.
