Contact Lens Exams

Contact Lens Image

At Karns Vision Center, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrists in Knoxville.  After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, our doctors will discuss a variety of contact lens options available to you.  This allows us 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.

Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Presson determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them.  To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Knoxville optometrist, call (865)-247-7715 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Presson works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle.  Contact lenses are available in either soft, rigid gas permeable (RGP), or hybrid forms. Disposable Contact lens options are daily, bi-weekly, or monthly depending on what type of contact lenses are prescribed. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal/multifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with presbyopia. Call us at (865)-247-7715 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.

Cosmetic Lenses

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 (865)-247-7715 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
