Medical Contact Lenses

At the office of Optical Outlets, our experienced optometrist and team of eyecare professionals can provide medical contact lenses for patients with a diverse range of vision needs. Dedicated to providing the highest quality of care, our office keeps pace with advanced technology and treatment methods to provide the most appropriate, comfortable, and effective contact lenses to improve our patients’ eyesight. Our goal is to help everyone who comes to our office for care maintain healthy eyes and enjoy optimal vision.

Medical contact lenses can help restore normal vision for patients with certain corneal irregularities, including keratoconus. Your cornea is the clear structure at the front of the eye, responsible for focusing light that passes through on its way to the retina. While in a healthy eye, the cornea curves like a dome, in an eye with keratoconus, the center of the cornea gradually begins to thin and bulge, forming a cone shape that distorts your vision. To evaluate this condition and determine a course of care that is right for you, our skilled and experienced optometrist will provide a comprehensive eye examination, which includes a visual acuity test, slit-lamp examination and corneal topography imaging. Our team offers a variety of effective options to treat keratoconus and correct the associated vision problems. These options include rigid gas permeable lenses, soft lenses and hybrid lenses. By using the latest technology in medical contacts, we can fit you with lenses that feel comfortable while improving your vision and corneal health. Our team will create a personalized treatment plan to meet your individual needs. We’ll also address any questions you may have throughout treatment, to help you make the most informed decisions regarding your care.

Diagnosis of Pediatric Eye Conditions

Visual impairments in children can lead to developmental delays, and affect your child’s overall quality of life at play and at school. Fortunately, with early detection and intervention, we can provide your child with the care they need to help ensure optimal vision development from the start. At the office of Optical Outlets we utilize leading-edge approaches for the earliest diagnosis of pediatric eye conditions. We recommend bringing children in for comprehensive examinations periodically, to assess their vision and determine if corrective treatment is needed.

When your child is first born, their sense of sight is not yet fully developed. Over the first few months of life, your child’s brain will learn to process different visual information to form a picture of the world around them. Your child’s ability to see the world plays an important role in their physical, cognitive and social development, which is why it’s important to address visual impairments and conditions affecting the health of your child’s eye. According to the American Optometric Association, children should have their eyesight tested first when they are 6 months old, then again at 3 years old, and again before they begin school. After that, it’s recommended to bring your child in for checkups every 2 years, but visits may be more frequent depending on your child’s needs. During your child’s checkup, our office will perform a visual acuity test and evaluate the health of your child’s eyes. Our friendly professional staff will make sure your child feels comfortable and relaxed throughout their checkup. Early intervention with glasses, vision therapy and other methods of care can prevent problems from progressing into adulthood.

Common Refractive Error

Astigmatism is a common refractive error, which our highly trained eye care professional can diagnose with a comprehensive eye exam. When you visit us at the office of Optical Outlets, we’ll perform a series of comfortable diagnostic tests to evaluate the anatomy and function of your eye. If a refractive error such as astigmatism is detected, we’ll discuss your options in vision correction and provide personalized care to meet your individual needs.

Refractive errors occur when the shape of the eye cannot correctly bend light to focus on the retina. In people with astigmatism, the refractive error is typically caused by an irregularly shaped cornea or eye lens. In order for the cornea to function properly, it should be evenly rounded, like a baseball, but in people with astigmatism, the cornea’s curvature is uneven, like a football. This causes images to appear blurry and stretched out. While myopia makes it difficult to see far away, and hyperopia and presbyopia make it difficult to see close-up, astigmatism affects vision at any distance. To test for astigmatism, our office will have you read from an eye chart to test your vision at varying distances. We’ll also use an instrument called a phoropter to test how your eyes focus light through a variety of different lenses; this will help us determine the right prescription to treat your refractive error. We may also measure the curvature of your cornea and assess the details of your cornea’s shape. To treat astigmatism, prescription eyeglasses are a simple and highly effective solution. Contact lenses can correct astigmatism as well, however, due to the irregular shape of the cornea, regular soft contact lenses may not be a good fit for people with astigmatism. Toric lenses or gas permeable contacts may be a better solution. For some cases, other approaches to care such as vision therapy, orthokeratology and LASIK can also help. There are a wide range of approaches for treating astigmatism, and with the care of our experienced professional team, you can enjoy better eyesight in all your daily activities.
