If you choose to wear contact lenses, the standard eye exam for eyeglasses will still be performed and at our Rockport optometry office, our opticians at Rockport Eye Associates will test your visual clarity using an eye chart. Our doctors will also determine if you have any refractive errors (blurry vision) that prevent your eyes from focusing light properly. Once our doctor has finished the standard exam, your eyes will be measured to make sure that lenses sit correctly over your corneas. We may also ask you to wear trial lenses during the visit to see how your eyes handle them. Our eye doctors are able to provide you with various contact lens choices, including multifocal, bifocal, rigid or soft lenses and you also have the option to change the color of your eyes with colored lenses. If you are visiting our Rockport optometry office requesting contact lenses for the first time, we will give you a thorough evaluation to make certain you’re a good candidate for wearing contacts. Because there are so many lens choices, our educated doctors will listen closely to your goals and choose the lens that best suits your lifestyle.

Once we are both comfortable with the direction you want to take with your contact lenses, our doctors will perform several more tests to assess your eyes. Because a contact lens rests on the cornea when it’s inserted into your eye, the curvature of the cornea has to be measured precisely to guarantee an ideal fit. Another important test that will be done at our Rockport optometry office is the slit lamp exam. Although this test is performed during a regular eye exam, our doctor may spend more time doing a slit lamp exam for a potential contact lens wearer. From time to time, medical eye problems are found that need to be treated before continuing on with the lens fitting.

After contact lens options are discussed, diagnostic contact lenses will be placed onto your eyes. We will then perform a visual acuity test in order to determine how well a contact lens corrects your vision. If you’ve never worn contact lenses, you will be taught the proper way to insert, remove and disinfect them. The experts at our Rockport optometry office will stress how important cleanliness and disinfection are when it comes to your’ lenses. You will most likely wear the contact lenses for a week before returning for a follow-up visit. At the follow-up visit, our doctors will review the contact lenses and solve any potential problems. Fitting contact lenses is a precise procedure that requires the level of expertise you will find at our Rockport optometry office.

Regular routine eye exams are important for everyone to get. However, people who have diabetes need to get examined much more frequently than those who don’t have it. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness for people under 65 years old in the United States. People who have diabetes need to get a special type of eye exam called diabetic retinal eye exams. If you have diabetes, you need to go to an eye doctor who is experienced in working with patients who have it. Our Rockport Optometrist at Rockport Eye Associates, Dr. Soto has over 10 years of experience with evaluating and treating patients with diabetic eye disorders.

If you have diabetes your eye doctors like our Rockport Optometrist at Rockport Eye Associates will do a special diabetic screening test called a diabetic retinal eye exam in order to check for diabetic retinopathy. Forty to forty five percent of Americans who have diabetes are diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is serious because it causes loss of vision and possible blindness. Diabetic retinopathy can cause vision loss in 2 ways. Fragile abnormal blood vessels can develop and leak blood in the middle of the eye, blurring vision, or fluid can leak into the center of the area of the eye where sharp, straight-ahead vision occurs (the macula). The fluid causes the macula to swell, which causes blurry vision. This condition is called macular edema.

When you have diabetes you need to go to an eye doctor who has specialized training in diabetic eye care, like our experienced Rockport Optometrist at Rockport Eye Associates. Because diabetic eye conditions are so serious, you need to go to the best. Dr. Soto has the specialized training and experience to help you so you know you’re in good hands when you come to our office. Our friendly staff is looking forward to helping you.
