Contact Lens Exams

Contact Lens Image

At Arizona Red Mountain Eye Care, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Mesa. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Jeremy Olsen 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. Olsen 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 Mesa optometrist, call (480) 985-6211 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Olsen 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 select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at (480) 985-6211 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 (480) 985-6211 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "With new insurance comes finding a new doctor for most everything. I chose Red Mountain because it was close to home and it was on my list of providers. From initially setting up the appointments for myself and my son to the actual appointments to picking up the glasses, I received the most friendly and professional service I have ever had an eye care place. I enjoyed being treated like a person, not another order. Thank you for the GREAT service and kindness you all showed me and my son."

  • "I have been going to Dr. Olsen for many years now traveling about 45 minutes to his location. Dr. Olsen takes his time in giving me my options for contact lens trying to accommodate my astigmatism and farsightedness. He is very patient and determined to achieve the best vision I can possibly have. I would highly recommend Dr. Olsen."
