Contact lenses are at their best when they are the right size, shape, and prescription for your eyes. This comes part and parcel with an accurate fitting exam. If you are considering using contact lenses, visit us for an initial evaluation and fitting exam. We will walk you through the best options for your eye shape and prescription.
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 entirely.
If you have an irregularly-shaped cornea, or some other problem that may eliminate standard contact lenses as an option, scleral contact lenses may be a great solution for you. Scleral lenses are gas permeable and and cover the eye, resting on the sclera (white part of the eye) as opposed to covering the cornea.
Advances in contact lens technology happen all the time, and they’ve produced some great new varieties of contact lenses. Bifocal contact lenses offer the same functionality as bifocal eyeglass lenses, but in a smaller and more discrete form.
If you’re ready to make the move to contacts, request an appointment to have your eyes examined and fitted.
More Information About Contact Lenses
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr Dittman or Nock will determine what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (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.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Dittman and Dr. Nock works with you to determine which brand and type of contact lens is ideal for your needs.
If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or seasonal eye 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.
We are proud to offer Butler and Cranberry Township a local choice that strives to match online pricing for contact lenses, contact solution, and other accessories.
The Office Staff is great and they are willing to take care of their patients. I had an emergency appointment and Dr. Nock drove in to see me, which is really great and saved me the time of trying to find another person that could see.
I want to thank all the staff once again I was treated wonderful by all. I have been a patient of Dr. Dittmans for several years and never have I been treated anything but with the utmost respect by all. So thank you very much.
I love Dittman eye care have been going there for many years and am always treated with respect and a smile from the staff and Dr. Dittman is a great doctor he takes the time he needs for his patients I cant imagine going any where else for my eye care needs
Had a great expiereance while there. The girls are very informative with what they told me about my eyes and Dr. Nock is a good eye doctor and really cares about my eyes. Thank you from Mary and Don McClain.
My first visit was excellent. I appreciated all the time taken from several members in choosing new frames. My exam was very informative and not rushed. I was completely satisfied.
Thank you for being a valued patient at Dittman Eyecare. Unfortunately, as you most likely already know the governor of PA, Tom Wolf mandated all non-life sustaining businesses close their doors immediately. As eye care providers that means we are allowed to only to take care of ocular emergencies.
As of now here are our plans:
At Dittman Eyecare we want you to know that we thank you for trusting us with your eye care needs. We also wish everyone stays healthy and keeps a positive mindset in these trying days, and we look forward to when we can open our doors and go back to business as usual!
Please reach out to us if any questions.
