Contact Lens Services
At ABSOLUTELY OPTICAL, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in TAMPA. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Jay Weil 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 doctor to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Weil determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes adjust focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. Our optometrist uses the latest computer technology to assist in taking these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our TAMPA optometrist, call (813) 348-9696 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Weil 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 actually 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 selected. Specialized contact lenses are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at (813) 348-9696 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
Cosmetic lenses are also available to transform your eye color. Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Some people benefit from handmade custom tinted contact lenses which can camouflage a color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Call us at (813) 348-9696 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in enhancing or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
