If you need to have a contact lens exam fitting, or a comprehensive eye exam, you will want to come to our vision practice, Edward Soss, OD. At our vision practice, patients are able to have top-notch eye exams by our expert optometrist, Dr. Edward Soss. Our eye exams in Ingleside are quite comprehensive whether you are getting eyeglasses and need an eyeglass lens prescription, or whether you are getting a contact lens exam and fitting. During both types of these eye exams in Ingleside your visual acuity will be tested as well as your eyes will be tested for any eye diseases or disorders.
During both of these eye exams your eyes will be tested for many different types of eye diseases including: glaucoma; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; retinal tears; dry eyes; glaucoma; cataracts; and other problems of cornea, macula, and retina. If it is determined that you need any type of advanced treatment our optometrist will be able to refer you to an expert ophthalmologist in the area. If you are having a contact lens exam and fitting your eyes will also be measured for the curvature of the cornea and the size of the iris. It is important that your contact lenses fit you precisely in order for you to see well with them, and to make sure that your eyes are not damaged by the lenses.
As part of your eye exams in Ingleside, your eyes will also be measured for their visual acuity. If it ends up that you have any refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, our eye doctor will be able to write a lens prescription for you that will have you seeing clearly again. Today there are many different types of contact lenses available to patients. Even if you have astigmatism or dry eye you will be able to see clearly with contact lenses. If you tried contact lenses several years back and did not like the results, you may want to try them again since contact lenses have undergone tremendous changes over recent years.
