At Advanced Eyecare Specialists, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Falmouth. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Timothy Sajban 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 our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.
Dr. Timothy J. Sajban is trained to fit and prescribe all types and brands of contact lenses. This includes soft lenses and rigid gas permeable hard lenses. He is also trained to fit specialty contact lenses for certain eye conditions such as, the correction of presbyopia with monovision or bifocal contact lenses. Other correctable conditions include astigmatism, keratoconus, and residual refractive error after LASIK, PRK, or RK.
There are a lot of factors to consider when you make a decision to wear contact lenses. The biggest factor is usually cost. The doctor thinks it is important that you know what is included in the initial coast of trying contact lenses:
- Comprehensive eye examination
- Diagnostic contact lens determination and fitting
- Insertion and removal training. This also includes an explanation of the care regiment required for the needs of your individually fitted contact lenses.
- Any follow up visits required to provide you with a contact lens fit that is the healthiest for your eyes, and also achieves the best vision and comfort possible.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Sajban 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. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Falmouth optometrist, call 508-444-8691 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Sajban 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 select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at 508-444-8691 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 508-444-8691 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
