Contact Lenses

Dr. Wallace keeps abreast of the latest contact lens technologies and products.

clipart 018Do you need contact lenses near you?

August Wallace Eyecare Associates in Longview offers soft contact lenses (disposable, toric for astigmatism, multifocal for bifocal wearers, monovision fits, and color contacts). We fit gas permeable rigid lenses for both single vision and bifocal Rxs.

In keeping with the latest developments in contact lenses, August Wallace Eyecare Associates in Longview offers all the three fitting sets for Synergeyes hybrid contacts which has a rigid center and a soft lens skirt.

In order to maintain optimum eye health, the staff trains each new contact patient on the use and care for their particular type of contact. Note, each type of contact has specific requirements.

Our office is just minutes away from Hallsville and Gilmer. If you’re coming from that direction, contact us for directions!

  • Disposable contact lenses are generally considered to be far superior in comfort and wearability than hard and rigid lenses.
  • A routine exam won’t provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear, and to generate your contact lens Rx.
  • Fortunately for those who don’t like the look, feel or inconvenience of reading glasses, there is another option. Bifocal and multifocal lenses are also available in contact lenses in both soft and rigid varieties.
  • These rigid lenses aren’t as popular or well-known as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision and high oxygen permeability.
  • Contact lenses offer advantages in the areas of sports and self-esteem. But when is your child old enough for contacts?
  • Challenges such as astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes needn’t be a barrier to contact lens wear, but they do require more time and patience.
  • “I can’t wear soft contacts; I have astigmatism.” This once-true statement is now simply a myth.
  • Certain types of contact lenses and eyeglasses may play a role in slowing the progression of myopia, or nearsightedness.
