At Riviera Opticare, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Mesa. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Susan Reckell 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 our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.
Contact lenses are available as means to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, as well as bifocal and multifocal prescriptions. Riviera opticare carries a wide variety of contact lenses in stock (some restrictions apply, generally ordered lenses are available withing a few business days.) All of our doctors are very experienced in fitting a vast array of contact lenses and have the ability to fit for even some of the most difficult cases.
When being fit for contact lenses an additional examination is performed in order to evalute measurements that are not available to the doctor during the comprehensive eye exam, these measurements and tests include tear sufficiency, cornea and lid health, and cornea curvatures.
Our Dr.s will work hand in hand with you until you are comfortable with both the vision as well as the feel of your new contact lenses.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Reckell 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. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Mesa optometrist, call 480-827-9184 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Reckell works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. 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. Call us at 480-827-9184 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
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 480-827-9184 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
