At Scottsdale Eye Physicians and Surgeons, we strive to meet all of your vision care needs. Our Optometrist, Dr. Candria E. Meharry provides contact lens evaluations with prescription management. Following a comprehensive eye examination, Dr. Meharry will discuss the contact lens options available, and make recommendations for the lenses that will best fit your lifestyle.
Before prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Meharry will evaluate your vision by measuring the refractive error, also known as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. The refractive error is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus.
Upon determining your needs, Dr. Meharry will discuss your lens options, and fit you with the best possible contact lenses for your eyes! At Scottsdale Eye Physicians & Surgeons, we take every step to determine which pair of lenses will provide the most comfortable and clear vision. Utilizing our large selection of contact lenses, our knowledgeable optometrist will provide you with the best technology for your eyes.
Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, bi-weekly, monthly, or annually, depending on what type of lenses best fit your needs. We also offer bifocal, multifocal and monovision contact lenses, for patients needing their vision corrected at near and distance.
Our advanced technology in contact lenses provides options for hard-to-fit patients with high refractive errors, astigmatism and irregular corneas due to corneal disease. With these advancements we are able to provide custom contact lenses that allow us to meet the needs of most of our patients.
We offer our patients a wide variety of specialty contact lens options, including SynergEyes and Kontur contact lenses. Call us at (480) 994-1872 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in learning more about these exciting advances in technology.
Trauma, birth defects, eye infections and disease can lead to disfigurement of an eye and make an individual feel self-conscious about his or her appearance. Custom prosthetic lenses improve the appearance of a disfigured eye by making it possible for Dr. Meharry to camouflage any color variation or irregularity of the front surface of the eye.
Contact lens technology has become more creative in providing cosmetic and theatrical lenses. Cosmetic contact lenses, also known as colored contact lenses, can change the color of your eyes to any color variation. Custom theatrical lenses allow for you to change your look by selecting a unique and exciting theme for your eyes. Call us at (480) 994-1872 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing the color of your eyes with contact lenses.
Does the comfort of your contact lenses interfere with your life? Contact lens wearers are particularly predisposed to the development of Dry Eye. Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) is an FDA approved treatment for nearsightedness and is a nonsurgical alternative for those seeking a less permanent treatment option. CRT lenses are worn only while sleeping, eliminating the dryness and discomfort of daytime contact lens wear. CRT treatment results should equal the vision correction from glasses or contact lenses. Most patients experience dramatic improvement in the first few days, with complete vision correction within 1-2 weeks! Call our office at (480) 994-1872 to find out more about CRT or to schedule an appointment with our Scottsdale Optometrist.
