Contact lenses are an excellent alternative to glasses and refractive surgery. Today’s advanced technology in contact lens materials allows millions of patients to wear contact lenses.
The Contact Lens Consultations at Kirkwood Eye Center involve a patient-centered discussion of both lifestyle and contact lens needs to determine your best corrective option. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, make sure to discuss these items with our staff and doctors so that we can establish the healthiest option for your contact lens wear. For all contact lens patients, we will assess the corneal health and rule out conditions that can complicate contact lens wear. New to contact lens wear? No problem, our staff will gladly walk you through the training for the care, application, and removal of contact lenses so that you are set up for success!
We offer a wide variety of contact lenses, such as soft contact lenses in daily, biweekly, or monthly replacement options for all types of refractive error including astigmatism and multifocal lenses! Further, our staff is experienced in fitting and managing patients with specialized contact lens needs, such as patients with previous difficulty with contact lenses, contact lens related dryness and ocular allergies. We also offer vision correction for more complex ocular conditions such as keratoconus, irregular corneas or corneal transplants with specialty fit scleral lenses. Whether your eyes and vision conditions are straight-forward or complex, our goal is to work with each patient to determine the best and healthiest contact lens for you!
