"Wow! What great and friendly service today - a definite 5 stars! My old Ray-Ban frames were crumbing apart at the ear pieces. The on- duty optician switched my lenses to the new Ray-Ban frames that I purchased there. She did a outstanding job! I highly recommend this office! -J.

"This group of medical professionals offer a friendly atmosphere incorporated with a high degree of professionalism. I have been a patient of Dr. Dunn's for years, and with unusual eye conditions, I feel so thankful that he is my doctor, offering expansive knowledge in this field. My daughter also uses this clinic. As a child with severe headaches, we had seen many specialists, none of whom were able to help her. When she went to this clinic, they determined during a routine eye exam the condition she had, and finally after almost 20 years have been able to rectify the situation. The professionalism, knowledge, care, and compassion for their patients is superb."- S.C. / Google / Apr 14, 2021
Are Contacts or Eyeglasses Right for Me?
For some people, contacts are the most suitable option to obtain their best vision. Beyond ease of use, contact lens functionality has made many recent advancements. Several of the most frequently requested types of contacts we provide include daily wear, disposable, bifocal, and astigmatism contact lenses. Furthermore, modern contact lenses are easier to wear than previous designs, with the majority of contact lens users experiencing no discomfort.
For anyone who might not be prepared to put in contacts or who has particular eye conditions, prescription glasses can also be an effective choice. Just like contact lenses, eyeglasses have made amazing innovations through the years and can offer numerous advantages.
They are usually less expensive than contacts, less challenging to store when not in use, and not as fragile. In addition, glasses screen the eyes from a lot of external elements and do not bother dry or aching eyes as contacts sometimes do. Even so, most Family Vision Care patients opt to use a combination of both types of prescription lenses for various situations and daily activities.
What Can I Expect When Getting Contacts and Glasses?
At Family Vision Care, we make it a priority to dedicate our time and attention to helping you with the right pair of glasses or the most appropriate contact lenses for your specific needs and lifestyle. Moreover, we have a lot of options to help you stay within your budget. Plus, we are proud to provide an in-depth training course for the insertion and removal of contacts for all ages. If you get glasses, it's likely you won't need to come back for a follow-up appointment; however, for those who decide on contact lenses, we recommend a follow-up after about six weeks to make sure that the lenses are comfortable and are improving your vision appropriately. Please remember, however, that these follow-up appointments cannot serve as regular complete eye exams. Comprehensive exams should occur at least every other year. During these appointments, we will monitor the overall health of your eyes along with your prescription to decide if it should be changed.
Contact Lenses And Glasses FAQ
Does wearing glasses or contact lenses make your vision worse?
No, it doesn't. Wearing prescription corrective lenses corrects refractive errors in your eyes to help you see clearly — it doesn't make your eyesight worse. The main reason for this misconception is presbyopia — or age-related vision degradation. As we age, our eyes don't focus as well as they did when we were young, and our vision tends to get worse, forcing us to wear corrective lenses to help us see more clearly.
Is it safe to wear contacts every day?
Yes, it is. Unless you are currently experiencing redness, irritation, or an eye infection, wearing daily contact lenses is completely fine. You should always remember to practice proper care and cleaning of your contacts to prevent any possible problems or eye infections.
How long can you wear contact lenses?
- Daily Wear Contacts should be removed before you go to bed, or typically about 16 hours a day.
- Extended Wear Contacts allow you to sleep in them and are usually changed every seven days.
During your exam at Family Vision Care, we will give you the proper wear and care recommendations for your contact lenses.
