When you call for a contact lens eye appointment at Holt Eye Clinic, let the technician know that you’re coming in to get contact lenses. It requires a special type of examination, and we want to allow ample time on our schedule. For every pair of contact lenses we fit, we determine each patient’s exact eye measurements to make sure the lens fits exactly right. We’ll also want to consult with you about your lifestyle and the type of contacts you’d like to have, as we offer a wide variety from which to choose.
Hot Springs, AR Contact Lenses Benefits
For many patients in Hot Springs, AR, contact lenses are a much better choice than eyeglasses. Some of the multiple benefits of wearing contact lenses are:
- No more eyeglasses sliding down the nose
- Better peripheral vision, with no eyeglass frames at the side of your eyes
- No eyeglass lenses steaming up when going from a cold environment to a warm one
- A much clearer and fuller field of vision
- A feeling of freedom from not having eyeglasses on the face
Types of Contact Lenses Available
If you’ve never gotten contact lenses before, you’ll probably be surprised at the wide variety of choices we offer. For patients with normal vision correction problems such as nearsightedness and farsightedness, you can choose between disposable lenses, daily wear lenses, extended wear lenses, rigid gas permeable lenses, and even colored lenses to enhance or change the shade of your eyes.
For patients with harder to fit prescriptions, we offer contact lenses for those with astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and other less-common eye conditions. Our optometrists will consult with you after examining your eyes and will explain to you all the options you have available.
