Prior to prescribing contact lenses, our optometrist at SouthWest Vision in St. George will determine what level of vision correction you require. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. 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, are also available for patients with special eye conditions.
There are many contact options available and often our eye doctors in St. George can send you home with samples to ensure that you are happy with the lens before you purchase more. Our staff can help you order more contact lenses or you can use the links on our website at any time.
