Yearly Eye Exams
At Eufaula Eye Associates we believe that yearly comprehensive eye exams are fundamental in maintaining healthy and efficient vision. Maintaining eye health requires regular eye exams. Exams for the eyes can detect diseases or abnormalities that are not causing symptoms yet.
We aim to prevent eye diseases, therefore preserving sight. During this exam, we check for your most up to date prescriptions and can have discussions about what specialty lenses may work for your lifestyle. Following the prescription check, we ensure healthy ocular anatomy. We will discuss any treatment plans needed for your specific eyes and go over the best timeline for when we should see you back.
Contact Lens Fittings
Millions now wear contact lenses who couldn’t just a few years ago. The proper fitting of contact lenses requires knowledge, skill and increased time over and above that necessary for more routine vision care. Drs. Benavides and Sage have specialized training for all contact lens care, from the most basic to those which are custom designed.
Eufaula Eye Associates offers a complete selection of contact lenses for all your vision needs. Whether you have astigmatism, you need a bifocal lens, or you just want to change your eye color, our doctors and staff will help you to look and see your best.
If you are new to the contact lens world, the process begins with a contact lens fitting by the doctor. Then, we’ll teach you about the proper care and handling of the lenses and instruct you on insertion and removal techniques. Before you leave the doctor will verify the best vision, fit, and power has been achieved. We send you home with trial contact lenses to make sure they are clear and comfortable in the real world!
If you are an experienced contact lens patient, your prescription should be updated annually as part of your yearly eye exam so you’ll be able to continue to order your lenses, either by our office or on-line.
Hard To Fit Contact Lenses
Due to a variety of factors such as individual eye shape, specific conditions, impairments, or the aftermath of surgery, some patients are considered to have more difficulty wearing contacts than others and may require custom fit contact lenses.
Frame selection can be daunting. We will make sure your frames fit your face shape and will work with your specific glasses prescription. Glasses are more than a medical device, they are like a piece of jewelry for your face! We believe that you should love the way you see AND look. We invite you any time we are open without an appointment to be fitted!
Frame Adjustments & Repairs
Glasses fall out of adjustment with wearing. We have many tools to make sure they fit and are aligned. This is important because not only will it be more cosmetically appealing, but you should be looking through the center of the lens for best vision. We are also able to make many repairs in the office. That is something we can let you know if you bring any frames you own in with you to your next visit!
