At Shafer Vision 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 Brownsburg. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Melissa Shafer 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. Shafer 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 Dr. Shafer, call 317-852-5000 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Shafer works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If soft contact lenses are right for you, they are replaced daily, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what style of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as multifocal or toric (astigmatism) contact lenses are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at 317-852-5000 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for colored soft lenses. There are variations in color that can give a subtle or dramatic color change, and improved materials that increase oxygen to the eye for better eye health. Call us at 317-852-5000 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
