At Chancellor Eye Care, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrists in Fredericksburg. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, one of our optometrists 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.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, the optometrist 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.
After determining the level of refractive error, one of our optometrists 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, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at (540) 785-3937 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
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 (540) 785-3937 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
Are You Disposing Your Disposables?
Contact lenses begin attracting deposits of proteins and lipids almost immediately after they are inserted. These accumulated deposits begin to reduce the performance of your contacts, even with routine lens care, and create a solution that presents a greater risk to your eye health.
These problems can be prevented before they occur by a specific replacement schedule. This results in added comfort, convenience and health benefits for the contact lens users. Your eye care professional can take care of your replacement schedule to fit your lifestyle.

Interesting fact: by the age of 13, most eyes are developed enough for contact lens wear.
