At Dr. Michelle L. Spittler & Associates, we assess all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrists in Columbia. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Spittler & Dr. Seibert 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, we determine 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 Columbia optometrist, call (803) 790-4600 today.
After determining the level of refractive error and overall eye health, Dr. Spittler & Dr. Seibert work 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 is selected. We also have specialized contact lenses available.
