At Shvartsman Eyecare, PC, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist.. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Shvartsman 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 the doctor to determine which contact lenses are right for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Shvartsman 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. To ensure a precise and comfortable fit, she will also take measurements of your eyes curvature. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our optometrist, Dr. Shvartsman, call 847-423-2191 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Shvartsman works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. 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. Call us at 847-423-2191 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you. If you have previously been told you are not a contact lens candidate, please refer to our HARD TO FIT CONTACTS section.
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 at (847) 423-2191 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
