Contact Lenses

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Sumner determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as near sightedness, far sightedness, or astigmatims) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. two different objective automated instruments are first used by the technician to take these measurements. Dr. Sumner then carefully evaluates this information to provide a precise and customized final prescription. The refractive examination today requires fewer “which is better” questions for the patient! To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with Dr. Sumner, call 303-321-1606.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Sumner consults 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. Dr. Sumner specializes in enhancing the ocular surface, so that more people can comfortably wear contact lenses. 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 and scleral lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at 303-321-1606 to discuss if contact lenses are a good option for you.
