Contact Lens Exams

At Vision 3C Specialists, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our doctor. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Fernando Trujillo 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 staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.

Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Trujillo 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. Dr. Trujillo may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Trujillo 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.

Cosmetic Lenses

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.

Specialty Lenses

There are several types of specialty contact lenses. These include: rigid gas, permeable contact lenses, piggyback contact lenses, hybrid contact lenses and scleral contact lenses. They could be used in hard to fit cases. We will be happy to discuss the options for contact lenses that could best work for you.
