At West Texas Eyecare, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrists at both the Fort Stockton and Pecos locations. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, your eye care professional 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, be sure to let us know so we can determine which contact lenses are right for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, your eye care professional will 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 with our optometrists, call or text us today.
After determining the level of refractive error, your eye care professional will work with you to determine whether contact lenses, glasses or a combination of both are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, be sure to let us know so we can come up with the best plan for you. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable or hybrid (a combination of both soft and hard). Contact lenses may need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or semi-annually depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, scleral lenses and medically necessary contact lenses are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at (432) 336-3662 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 or text us to speak with our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
