Advantages of Contact Lenses
After a thorough eye examination by one of our Vold Vision optometrists, we will discuss if contact lenses are the appropriate solution for your vision needs. Contacts are a great way to see the world clearly, without wearing glasses. The world of contact lenses is always improving. Technology has made many new-age types of contact lenses available to the public, including:
- Daily wear contact lenses
- Daily disposable contact lenses
- Bifocal contact lenses
- Astigmatism contact lenses
- Multifocal contact lenses
- Basic lenses
- HD contact lenses
Even more intriguing, are now developed with an advanced engineered design that results in a more comfortable fit, with 9 out of every 10 contact lens users reporting no discomfort.
NOTE: Every Contact Lens wear should have a pair of glasses to oxygenate their eye at night. When you sleep you eyelids help heal add oxygen and oils to your eye film that your contacts float on. Its very important you give your eye a break from contacts and when you sleep it the best time.
Advantages of Glasses
For those who may not be ready to wear contact lenses, the eye care specialists at Vold Vision will assist in fitting our patients for the proper eyeglasses. Vold Vision offers glasses starting at $149. We have the latest trends and styles from conservative and simple, to bold and sophisticated. Similar to contact lenses, eyeglasses have a number of advantages:
- Eyeglasses are less expensive than contact lenses.
- Eyeglasses do not exacerbate dry or sensitive eyes as contacts can do.
- Contacts can fall out and get lost, whereas glasses stay put on the face.
- Eyeglass frames require less maintenance or special cleaning products.
- Glasses protect the eyes from a host of environmental elements.
At Vold Vision we also have the latest trends and styles for out in the sun too! Headed out to a Razorback game, a day on the lake, shopping fun at the mall etc., we can take care of you. We have countless options for both men, women, teens, and children.
"I have been dealing with Glaucoma for the past 25 years. I was put under the care of Dr. Laura Voicu at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA. She treated me for 18 months and performed Trabeculectomy surgeries on both eyes. Both surgeries were very successful. Dr. Voicuis a very compassionate, knowledgeable, and caring Physician and Surgeon. She is very thorough and carefully explains all aspects of your care. Of the numerous Doctors that have treated my Glaucoma she stands above the rest.Outstanding. I highly recommend Dr. Voicu for the treatment of Glaucoma."- T.D. / Google / Oct 30, 2017
"The best place to get LASIK. The procedure was fast and painless, and I could see the difference as soon as the surgery was complete. The whole process from the consultations to the checkups after the surgery have been simple and effortless. I felt at ease the whole time, mainly due to the personal and professional atmosphere provided by the staff. Highly recommend Dr. Vold for Laser vision correction."- J.G. / Facebook / Jun 26, 2018
"Here I am, one day post-LASIK and I literally am in disbelief at how well I can see! Part of me keeps thinking that I have my contacts in. I have to keep reminding myself that I don’t. I have nothing but glowing reviews of the entire team at Vold Vision. From the minute I first called for information I have been given the highest caliber of service, care, and compassion. It is evident that Dr. Vold and his entire team believe in the power of their work. They took extra tim...e to check and recheck to make sure that all of my measurements were exact. They have the very latest in technology to offer. The procedure itself was quick and painless and my results were almost immediate. After a good night’s sleep I woke up and I could see my sweet babies’ faces in total clarity. What a miracle! To Dr. Vold and everyone at Vold Vision, (Christine, Dr. McFarlane, and all the techs who talked me through my nervousness) thank you from the bottom of my heart! This a game changer. A LIFE changer!! #lasikbyvold"- B.H. / Facebook / Jun 06, 2018
"Was very impressed with their business. Dr. Vold is an award winning surgeon and seems to love what he does. To top that he runs a tight ship. I was super impressed with the professionalism of his staff."- N.G. / Google / Apr 27, 2018
"I wish I would have done this 10 years ago. I was eligible for the SMILE procedure, and my vision has never been so perfect. I can’t thank the TEAM at VOLD vision enough. Dr. Vold did a perfect job, Dr. McFarland is so helpful, and Christine does such a great job of making you feel comfortable and right at home! The whole staff at Vold Vision is great. This place is second to none in all aspects!!!"- B.M. / Facebook / Apr 24, 2018
How often do I need a contact lens exam?
We recommend annual eye exams for our patients to make sure contact lenses are still working to help improve your overall vision. Contact lens prescription length may vary, but they do expire eventually. This is why exams are so important so that we can understand your current vision needs.
Why does a contact lens exam cost more than a glasses exam?
Contact lenses by nature involve additional diagnostic testing than eyeglasses require. You will receive the same great benefits of an exam for glasses, but lenses are a bit more intricate. Contact lenses also come in a variety of sizes too. Which size do you need? This is a part of the examination process.
Why should I consider buying an annual supply?
Purchasing an annual supply of contact lenses will help save you money, time, and will ensure you always have lenses available for continued eye health. By becoming a Vold Vision Eyecare Club Member, and purchasing an annual supply of contacts will allow you the greatest cost savings too, offering the lowest price for your lenses.
