Contact Lens Care
Optix Eye Care strives to offer the most current technology in contact lenses. Dr. Walters is able to fit a wide variety of contact lenses. We offer soft lenses that range from monthly, bi-monthly, to daily disposable lenses which can correct most visual issues. We also specialize in hard-to-fit and custom contact lenses including soft, gas-permeable, scleral, and lenses for use in corneal reshaping therapy. An annual comprehensive eye exam is critical in maintaining optimal eye health for contact lens wearers, and required for prescription and fit.
We fit a variety of specialty contact lenses which include:
We fit a variety of disposable contact lenses, with wear times including weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly. Dr. Walters takes the time to work with each individual patient on what option is most comfortable, offers the most clarity, and is best suited for each patient’s lifestyle.
Spherical contact lenses come in many different materials and wear length and are made to correct myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness).
Toric soft contact lenses are designed for individuals with astigmatism, correcting both the spherical and cylindrical areas of the prescription. Each eye with astigmatism is unique and Dr. Walters is passionate about finding the best fit for each individual patient.
Multifocal Soft Lenses
Once patients reach the age of needing correction for close vision, they may be told that contact lenses will not work well for them. We do not believe this to be the case, and it may be a matter of finding what will work best for the patients. Multifocal Contacts have advances and are now more efficient, allowing the patient more quality options. Some patients may also be more comfortable wearing a monovision correction, using one eye for distance and one for near. Dr. Walters is committed to finding the best option for each individual patient.
