We are focused on taking the time to give you the best comfort and vision in contacts. We have contacts available to help with astigmatism, multifocals, and eye diseases like keratoconus. Dr. Price Kowaleski has attended special training seminars specializing in fitting multifocal contact lenses. We always have the newest products available — like the multifocal torics by Bausch & Lomb, Dailies Aqua Comfort Colors by Alcon, and Acuvue Transitions by Johnson and Johnson.
Multifocal contact lenses, similar to multifocal glasses have more than one power to allow an individual to have clear vision, near and far. They are available in both soft lens and gas permeable lens designs. Another alternative to multifocal contacts is monovision correction. With these lenses, one eye is used for distance and the other eye for near or reading vision. Dr. Price Kowaleski is very experienced at fitting multifocals and has attended specialty training on these lenses. Ask her if these are right for you.
The Right Age for Contacts
At Price Eye Care we fit contacts in patients from the age or 3 to 93. Often parents ask “is my child old enough to wear contact lenses?” Physically, the eyes can tolerate contact lenses at a very young age, even infants can wear contacts. The decision should be determined by the parent, child and your eye care professional. Generally, children who have mastered responsibilities may be great candidates for contact lenses. You are never too old to ask if contacts are right for you. We have several patients in their 70s and 80s who wear contact lenses successfully. (read more)
Children who want contacts instead of glasses are often more willing to adapt their schedules and follow the instructions to properly care for their lenses. In addition to being great self-esteem builders, contact lenses are also great for student athletes. Contact lenses are not a complete substitute for sports that require protective eyewear. However, some contact lenses used for recreational use can provide better optics than eyeglasses. Compared with eyeglasses, contact lenses provide better peripheral vision, which may improve your child’s athletic performance.
To determine if contact lenses are right for your child or teen, please call us to schedule an appointment. Dr. Price Kowaleski will help you and your child make this important decision.
