At Gatti Vision, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in King City. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Amber Dunn 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, Dr. Dunn 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, Dr. Dunn works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. 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 Dr. Dunn prescribes. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Remember, contact lenses are a medical device!
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 enhance your eye color. Remember, contact lenses are a medical device!
