Contact Lens Exams

At Alice Family Eye Center, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in ALICE. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Raymund Garza 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.


Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Garza 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 ALICE optometrist, call (361) 668-3937 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Garza 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 (361) 668-3937 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 (361) 668-3937 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.

Contact Lenses for Astigmatism

It is estimated at about many people have some form of astigmatism. This is a common visual disturbance which can be treated with the help of our optometrist. Unfortunately, some people may not understand that they have it or what this disorder even is. Fortunately, we are here to help you understand the basics of this condition, keep a look out for signs and symptoms of this disease, and get you the help you need to start seeing clearly.

At Alice Family Eye Center, we can help you get started on the road to seeing clearly with the help of our eye doctor in Alice, TX. We know that one of the best ways to treat this condition is through comfortable contact lenses that can improve your vision almost instantly. If you need treatment or contact lenses, read on below to see how we can help you get the answers you need.

What Is Astigmatism?

It is a type of vision disorder caused by the cornea or lens of the eye being misshapen. Instead of these parts of the eye being perfectly round, people with this condition might have a cornea or lens that is shaped more like a football, or oblong. In this case, it becomes difficult to properly process light and images into the retina of the eye.

This leads to the symptoms such as inability to focus clearly, blurry vision, eye strain, and headaches. All of these conditions can be difficult to live with, so it’s important to get help as soon as possible.

How Does an Optometrist Help?

This condition can be treated relatively easily with eyeglasses or contact lenses. Contact lenses can fit directly over the eye, improving the shape of the cornea and lens and helping light to be processed more clearly.

For people with this eye problem, the right pair of glasses or contact lenses can make all the difference. If you need contact lenses, our eye doctor on our optometry team can give you a prescription that you can use for contact lenses worn on a daily basis.

Contact Lenses for Dry Eyes

Choosing contacts is not always easy. If you have dry eyes, you know the frustration of finding a lens that feels comfortable all day long. The good news is that some options are available. Our eye doctor at Alice Family Eye Center in Alice, TX, can help you to get the best contacts for your individual needs.

Soft Lenses

Our optometrist will help you ensure that you have the right type of lens for your eyes. If you wear soft lenses, some are designed specifically for those with dry eyes. These lenses may have a higher water content or be made of a material that helps to keep your eyes lubricated. This can help to minimize discomfort and help you to feel more comfortable all day long.

Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses

Some options can help those with dry eyes if you wear gas-permeable lenses. These lenses are often made of a material that helps to keep your eyes lubricated. They can also be designed to allow more oxygen to reach your eye, which can help to reduce irritation. Contact lenses can also be made a bit larger in diameter to help reduce the evaporation of tears. Your eye doctor will ensure that you have the right fit for your individual needs.

Replacement Frequency

You need to consider how often you will need to replace your lenses when choosing the best type of lens. Some materials can last much longer than others. You may also need to replace your lenses more frequently if you have allergies that affect your eyes.

Silicone Hydrogels

This means that the lens is made of silicone and allows a high amount of oxygen to pass through to the eye. Oxygen is necessary for healthy eyes, so you want to be sure that your lenses will enable enough oxygen to pass through. Those with dry eyes often benefit from lenses with higher oxygen permeability.
