At Jackman Optometry, your eye health and vision care are truly our top priority. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Jackman will present a variety of contact lens options so that you can select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, our staff will help you determine whether contact lenses or one of our other options is best for your situation.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Jackman 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. We may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation at our Orange office, call (714) 543-2022 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Jackman works with you to decide whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. (If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution.) Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on the type you select. Specialized lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at (714) 543-2022 to find out 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 (714) 543-2022 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
