Contact Lens Exams

Contact Lens Image

At Carthage Eye Clinic, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Carthage. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Philip W. Marler 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 staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.

Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Marler determines what 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. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Carthage optometrist, call (601) 267-9351 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Marler 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 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 you and the doctor select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at (601) 267-9351 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.

Cosmetic Lenses

Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage any color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Cosmetic lenses are also available to transform your eye color. Call us at (601) 267-9351 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Great place! All the staff has always been helpful and professional. Dr Marler has met my husband and me on several occasions after hours to remove metal from my husband’s eyes. Too bad our company changed our insurance and Carthage Clinic is no longer in any of our eye care plans so we Had to change drs!"
