Contact Lens Exams
At Owens Optometrics, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in New Holland. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Robert Owens and Dr. Daniel Strybos 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 doctors to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Owens and Dr. Strybos determine what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation, call 717-354-2251 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, our doctors work 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 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. Dr. Robert Owens and Dr. Daniel Strybos are certified to fit the mini-scleral contact lens ZenLens. Call us at 717-354-2251 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. We carry the AirOptix Colors and the 1-DayAcuvue Define daily contacts. Try their online virtual sites or call us at 717-354-2251 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
