At Premier Eye Care, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Fort Worth. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Ronnie Kim 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.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Kim 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. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Fort Worth optometrist, call (817) 428-2020 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Kim 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. Call us at (817) 428-2020 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 us at (817) 428-2020 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
Step 1: Place the lens on the edge of your right index (or left if left-handed) index finger, edges up so it is shaped like a bowl.
Step 2: Place the second finger of left hand on the right upper eyelid and press firmly upward, holding up at the brow bone. Place second finger of the right hand on the lower lid and place firmly downward.
Step 3: Look straight ahead into a mirror and slowly move the index finger with the contact lens towards the cornea until the lens touches the cornea. Then release the eyelids and close the eye for a few seconds allowing the lens to settle. Repeat the procedure
Step 4: Open the eye same as before, holding upper lid up against the brow, and pulling down on the lower lid. Place thumb and index finger on the outer edges of the eye (whites of eye)
Step 5: Pull thumb and forefinger in towards the center of the eye until fingers touch, grabbing the lens by the edges.
Step 6: Fingers should meet in the center.
Step7: Pull lens straight out of the eye.
