At Powers Eye Center, we are your contact lens specialists!
Come find out why we have thousands of loyal contact lens patients in Southern Colorado. Are you confused about Dailies, Monthlies, Multifocal, Toric, Colored, Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) and Scleral contact lenses? Our Colorado Springs Eye Doctor at Powers Eye Center can help take the confusion out of which contact lenses are right for your lifestyle. Let us help you discover your personal favorites.
We have a large inventory with many brands of contact lenses on site. Most patients can wear lenses home on the day of their initial examination.
Our contact lens exam includes measurement of eye shape using a digital corneal topographer instead of the old fashioned less accurate keratometer that is still used in many offices. This high precision digital measurement more fully characterizes eye shape measuring up to 22,000 points of curvature per eye. This helps determine the most optimal size and type of contacts for your individual eyes and vision. Most patients are able to wear contact lenses home the day of their initial visit.
After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, our Colorado Springs optometrist, Dr. Neil McAllister, will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. We carry a full array of contact lenses to fit your needs including:
Toric Lenses for astigmatism
Gas-permeable lenses, also called “RGP”
Lenses that enhance or change eye color
Specialized contact lenses, such as scleral contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions.
If you are new to the type of contacts you take home, a follow-up visit a few days later may be scheduled to make sure you are seeing clearly, feeling comfortable and happy with your new lenses.
Advanced Technology for Contact Lens Fittings
We offer advanced contact lens fittings with the latest technology. For decades, eye doctors have used and in some offices still use a device called a keratometer to measure corneal curvature in two places on the eye.
We routinely perform corneal topography on contact lens patients to help you get the best fit possible. Our corneal topographer measures curvature at up to 22,000 locations, much more fully detecting eye shape for contact lens fitting, detection of irregular astigmatism, detection of eye disease and detection of refractive surgery complications.
