Contact Lenses have come so far since they were invented. Louisiana Eye Doctors offers a wide range of different types of contact lenses that treat different forms of vision problems. There are contact lenses that treat distance vision, near vision, astigmatism and change the color of the eye. There are no limitations to what contact lenses can provide to a patient who desires some freedom from eye glasses.
We are able to fit our patients in any contact lens on the market and we have very competitive prices. Contact lenses are medical devices and must be fit by a professional to achieve the best comfort and vision.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Moses determines 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.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Moses 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.
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.
