Contact Lenses: Things to Know

man-applying-his-contact-lens (2)
Contact lenses are an increasingly popular option for vision correction these days, for a variety of reasons. However, there are still plenty of questions about the different varieties of lenses, their functions, and what they are best used for.

Below are some resources to help you start the process of determining if contact lenses are right for you and your unique eye care needs.

Daily Disposable Contact Lenses

Daily disposable contact lenses provide you with the vision correction of contact lenses without requiring cleaning and maintenance of other types of contact lenses. Learn more about what daily disposables bring to the table.

Contact Lenses for Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a very common vision issue, and one that contact lenses are increasingly used to correct. Learn more about your options here.

Contact Lenses for Presbyopia

Just because you’ve developed presbyopia as you age doesn’t mean you have to slow down. Contact lenses can allow you to continue living an active lifestyle while providing the assistance you need. Learn more here.

Hard to Fit Contact Lenses

Just because you are classified as “hard to fit,” does not mean that contact lenses are ruled out as an option for you. Learn more about your options.

Colored Contact Lenses

For cosmetic purposes only, or can they help? Whichever purpose is relevant for you, there are things you should know in order to make an informed purchase.

Bifocal and Multifocal Contact Lenses

Just like glasses, both bifocal and multifocal contact lenses are available. Learn more about your options here.

Contact Lens Care

Your contact lenses may take care of your eyes, but you in turn have to take care of them. Learn the dos and don’ts, so that you get the most possible use out of your contacts.

Guide to Your Contact Problems and Issues

In order to maintain our ocular health, we require periodic examinations from optometrists to prevent, detect, and treat diseases and complications, including those involving motor visual and cognitive deficits.

Testimonials


  • I haven't actually used the optometrist side, so my review is limited to the vision therapy offered.  This office was recommended by my occupational therapist for the treatment of my double vision following a stroke.

  • Love this location. I had a brain injury accident from day one one. All the team make you feel you still important and hope in the horizon after when the medical system fell you miserably. Dr. Ikeda very professional and very understanding about your issue. Two tombs up.

  • My husband and I were immediately impressed with Dr Ikeda. I was hit by a car while cycling which caused broken bones and three brain injuries. The brain injuries caused double vision. Dr. Ikeda examined my eyes and got me started on vision therapy with his occupational therapist who specializes in vision therapy.  She (Chris) is absolutely great.  I am impressed with the array of tools used to help recover my binocular vision.  I am doing things I never thought were possible (balance boards etc).  Chris pushes me and keeps me motivated. I really enjoy my sessions with her.  The office staff is always friendly and they have a wonderful appointment reminder tool that makes it easy to keep my calendar up to date. I am happy the rehab center at Little Co. of Mary recommended them!!


    Teresa S.

  • The Vision Therapy is handled in a separate office through a different door from the shared waiting room. Chris, the vision therapist, has a wide and varied assortment of tools, equipment and resources to best evaluate and treat most vision issues. After just a few visits, my double vision became easier to control, using exercises developed during the therapy process. It was time well-spent.


    Joe M.

  • I have been coming here since I can remember. I love it here. The staff is so amazing and nice. They explain everything they gonna do and never make you feel rushed. Dr. Ikeda has always been my doctor and I would never want another one. He is the doctor for my whole family and is always asking how everyone is doing. I am also so crazy about picking out my frames and have to try so many and each person who helps me take the time and lets me try them all on. I would never want to go anywhere else! I definitely would recommend this office to anyone looking for a great eye doctor.
