Contact Lens Exams

Contact Lens Image

At Commonwealth Eye Center, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Floyd. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Blake Mitnick will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, speak with someone to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.

Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Mitnick determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. He may use an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Floyd optometrist, call (540) 745 8733 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Mitnick works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies you may have to address these problems first or glasses may be the most comfortable option. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Most soft contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, monthly or longer, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available. Call us at (540) 745 8733 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 at (540) 745 8733 and speak to usf you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
