Contact Lens Exams

Contact Lens Image

At Dr. Kenneth O'Daniel & Assoc., PC, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Phoenix. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Kenneth O'Daniel 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.

Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. O'Daniel 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 Phoenix optometrist, call 480-889-6044 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. O'Daniel 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 480-889-6044 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 480-889-6044 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.

After 27 years, I relocated. I left the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall to join two private practices. I am happy to announce that I have relocated my office to provide my patients with better accessibility with stellar service. My two new locations will be offering convenient parking, better pricing, and a wider selection of designer frames. I will be available at both locations and accept most insurance plans depending on the location (call for details). Saturdays by appointment.

Testimonial

  • "Dr. O'Daniel is wonderful! After visiting 2 other doctors regarding problems with my eyes, I decided to visit Dr. O'Daniel who has finally given me a plan to make my eyes feel better and after months of pouring money down the drain and agony, they do! He really took the time to sit with me during my appointment and helped me to understand what was going on with my eyes. He knows his stuff and he is now my official eye doctor!"
