When patients need vision correction, they can wear either prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. Many people choose to have both, so that their vision needs can be met in any situation. For example, if you wear contacts during the day that need to be removed at night, you will want to have eyeglasses that you can wear when you contact lenses are removed. At ours San Antonio optical store, patients are able to get many different types of contact lenses as well as great eyeglasses.
At our store, The Eyeglass Shop, our therapeutic optometrist is Dr. Paul A. Darrow. Dr. Darrow is able to treat and diagnose diseases of the eye, and provide patients with prescriptions for contact lenses and prescription eyeglasses. Once you get a prescription at our optical store, you will be able to purchase your needed eyewear at our practice, all under the same roof. At our San Antonio optical store, we offer many different types of contact lenses to meet our patients’ needs and personal preferences. Our optometrist specializes in providing patients with contact lens prescriptions and fittings for hard-to-fit contact lenses.
At our practice, patients can purchase multifocal contact lenses, Toric lenses that are worn for astigmatism, spherical contact lenses, gas permeable contact lenses, and purely cosmetic color contact lenses that make it appear as though the color of your eyes have changed. At our practice we also now offer daily contact lenses. Daily contact lenses are disposable contact lenses that are worn for one day and then replaced. These lenses have a slow-release moisture formula; it works with your tears to create a cushion of moisture around the lens. This ensures that the lenses are extremely comfortable for the entire day. These daily contact lenses have a thin lens design and feel very natural on the eye. They help to reduce halos, glare, and blurriness, even in low light or night situations. When you purchase contact lenses at our practice, we offer free shipping with the yearly supply of contact lenses. We also offer any manufacturers rebates when they apply. We also can provide free trial contact lenses when you have an emergency. We are happy to provide patients at our San Antonio optical practice with free contact lens solutions. We also offer all different types of soft contact lenses as well as rigid gas permeable lenses. If you wear contact lenses, we hope that you will make The Eyeglass Shop your source for contact lenses and optical care.
