At Eyecare of Florence, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Florence. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Lowe 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.
Evaluation / Fitting
The time it takes to preform a contact lens fitting typically runs more than a routine eye exam. If you are interested in wearing contact lens or simply having your prescription updated, please inform us before your routine eye exam begins because Dr. Lowe will need to determine if your eye is healthy enough to try contacts or continue wearing them. Contact lens are not a "one size fits all" product, therefore Dr. Lowe will measure your cornea to ensure the best size lens for your eyes to prevent discomfort. These additional tests result in a separate charge called a "Fitting Fee". This fee includes a trial pair of lens and will vary depending on the type of lens you are prescribed. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Florence optometrist, call (843) 665-2080 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Lowe 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 (843) 665-2080 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 (843) 665-2080 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
