Lose your reading glasses for good!

Have you noticed that you have to hold things farther away while reading? This is a common condition of people over 40 and is called presbyopia. It is caused by the normal aging of the eyes, and was traditionally treated with bifocal glasses. There is however another option for those not interested in reading glasses– multifocal contact lenses! Often, this type of lens eliminates the need for reading glasses, making clear vision simple. Many patients tell us that distance, near and intermediate distances are all clear, eliminating the need for computer or reading glasses. In the past, these lenses required an extensive fitting and follow up process. New technology has made multifocal lenses easier to use and require only a few visits to determine your best prescription. Give our office a call today to schedule an appointment!

Finally, a Contact Lens for Dry Eyes!

Do your contact lenses become dry, scratchy and irritating by the end of the day? You are not alone. Recent technology has an answer for these common complaints. Hydrogel contact lenses, which contain more water than previous types of lenses, allow the eye to feel more comfortable and hydrated as the day progresses. This type of lens can be worn for a longer amount of time since it does not dry out as frequently. If you notice any of these symptoms with your contacts, give our office a call to see if this new technology would work for you.

A quote from one of our cataract patients
"Thank you so much for performing cataract surgery on me. I am absolutely delighted with the results. It is a pleasure not to wear glasses anymore, and I cannot believe how bright colors are. The real bonus to me is how much my golf game has improved. The day after my follow up visit for my surgery I broke 100 for the first time this year. For all the golfers out there, this surgery is better than having lessons!"
