Contact Lens Fitting & Evaluation

BL-Biotrue-Oneday-Co-Op-300x250Both Dr. Phillips and Dr. Csonka specialize in fitting contact lenses. Whether you have a basic prescription or a complex one, the doctor will work with you to optimize your vision and comfort with corrective contact lenses. The doctors use the latest in contact lens materials and technology to fit you with the best possible lens for your eye shape and vision needs. By staying on the cutting edge of contact lens technology, rarely is there a patient that cannot be fit with some type of contact lenses. The doctors use soft, rigid, or even a hybrid of soft and rigid materials called SynergEyes ®lenses.
    DRY EYES - Specialty contact lenses now allow patients with dry eyes to wear contact lenses comfortably. BIFOCAL CONTACTS - Are you over 40 and annoyed by the on and off hassle of reading glasses or can't adjust to bifocal glasses? Come in and try bifocal contact lenses or monovision which often eliminate the need for glasses. ASTIGMATISM - Patients with astigmatism no longer need to tolerate fluctuations in vision with contact lens wear. SynergEyes® and newer toric lenses provide optimum vision for most amounts of astigmatism.
CORNEAL MOLDING - Would you like to eliminate the need for contact lenses or glasses during the day, but aren't ready for surgical vision correction? With corneal refractive therapy (CRT), you can sleep your way to great vision. CRT involves wearing specially designed contact lens molds from Paragon Vision Sciences. COSMETIC CONTACTS - Whether you have a prescription or not, colored contact lenses are available to change or enhance your natural eye color. This can be done on a daily basis or for that special occasion such as prom, wedding or holiday party.
KERATOCONUS - is a genetic condition in which the cornea, the front surface of the eye, becomes steep and irregular. This change as it advances makes it impossible for patients to see clearly with spectacles and requires them to wear contact lenses. In the early stages, soft contact lenses usually work well, but as the condition advances gas permeable or hybrid contact lenses become the lens of choice. Drs. Phillips and Csonka enjoy the challenge of caring for these patients to improve their quality of life. They take the time required to evaluate the patient’s needs and expectations to provide an optimal fit for each individual case. In the rare cases where a contact lens solution cannot be found, they work with the area’s finest surgeons who can provide corneal intact or corneal transplantation to maximize the patient’s visual outcome.
