Advances in the field of optometry have produced a variety of different types of contact lenses with a range of benefits. Rigid gas-permeable (RGP), daily-wear soft, extended-wear, extended-wear disposable, and planned replacement are the various types of contact lens options available today. Our McAllen optometrist will discuss the various options with you to determine which type will best fit your needs and lifestyle. Schedule your examination today by calling (956) 630-2020. They are many advantages to consider when determining if contact lenses are right for you and our knowledgeable staff is here to answer any questions.

Lasik

Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly referred to as LASIK, is a corrective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Like glasses or contact lenses, LASIK is a method for treating refractive conditions including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. At 20/20 Vision Care, Dr. Farias III provides pre- and post-operative exams for LASIK and other eye procedures. Call (956) 630-2020 today to schedule an examination to see whether you are a candidate for LASIK.
