At Elk Grove Optometry, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. David Kageyama and Dr. Janice Tamai 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. Kageyama and Dr. Tamai 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 optometrist, call (916) 686-4937 today.
After determining the level of
refractive error, Dr. Kageyama and Dr. Tamai will work
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 (916) 686-4937
if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
