The Best Selection of Contact Lenses in Abilene, TX
What does it involve?
Dr. Russell Liles of Elite Eyecare will match the right contact lenses to your specific needs and preferences, including:
- Soft Disposable Contact Lenses – According to the CDC, about 90% of contact lens wearers in the United States choose soft, disposable contact lenses. In the disposable lens category, our patients can choose between daily contact lenses and biweekly and monthly lenses.
It used to be that people who had astigmatism could not wear soft disposable contact lenses, but that is no longer the case. Soft toric lenses are now available. We also offer soft contact lenses in bifocal and multifocal varieties.
- Hard Contact Lenses – Also called rigid gas-permeable contact lenses, hard contacts address vision challenges that cannot be overcome with soft disposable contacts. They are most common in patients that have ocular irregularities or ocular disease. In some instances, glasses cannot even correct the issue!
Our team collaborates with corneal surgical teams and other experts to ensure a smooth contact lens fitting process.
- Colored Contact Lenses – It can be fun to change the color of your eyes temporarily, and there are also novelty contacts that have zombie or Dracula themes. They are available as prescription contacts and non-corrective varieties.
Keep in mind that even if you don’t need the corrective feature of colored contact lenses, eye exams are still required.
