At Bossier Family Eye Care, we strive to meet all of your eye care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by Dr. Pastilong. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, she will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. Be sure to mention if you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, a refraction will determine the 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. The optometrist will use a phoropter and automated instruments to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our office, call 318-747-0302 today.
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 or multifocal in soft or rigid gas permeable contact lenses, are also available. Call us at 318-747-0302 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
Scleral contact lenses may be prescribed in certain corneal conditions. ie. Keratoconus, irregular astigmatism, post refractive surgery like RK or LASIK. Call us at 318-747-0302 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested.
