Contact Lens Evaluation
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Hua 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. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Seattle optometrist, call (206) 382-6682 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Hua 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, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you need for your lifestyle.. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients to reduce the need for extra reading glasses.. Call us at (206) 382-6682 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 (206) 382-6682 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
