Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Centralia. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Kelly Padgett 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, Dr. Padgett 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. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Centralia optometrist, call 360-736-4447 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Padgett 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 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. Call us at 360-736-4447 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses.

Call us at 360-736-4447 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
