At Smith Vision Center, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management is done by Dr. Smith. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Christopher Smith 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. Just because you have any of the above conditions does not mean that you are not a candidate for contact lenses.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Smith 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. Dr. Smith uses a phoropter to take these measurements.
To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation call our El Dorado office at 316-452-5999 or our Wichita office at 316-613-3400 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Smith works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best fit for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution, however contact lenses may still be an option. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, every 2 weeks, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you and Dr. Smith select. Specialized contact lenses, such as multifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with needs for both a distance and near prescription.

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 transform your eye color. Call us in El Dorado at 316-452-5999 or Wichita at 316-613-3400 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
