My mother-in-law, Sue Para, just moved down from Massachusetts to be close to her family. (I was just diagnosed with Sjögren's, Rheumatoid Disease, and Fibromyalgia at 34.). After searching and working briefly for a St. Augustine competitor (who was severely lacking in customer service), she considered changing her long-time career in the optical world since she just wasn't finding a office like the one she left up north, where she was very knowledgable and had quite a following. It just so happens she was driving by your new Palatka Vision Center building and took the chance to walk in, even though the place is in the middle of being set up. She was so impressed by how beautiful and state-of-the-art it is that she finally felt like she found an office she would love to work for. She left her resume with one of the workers and she sincerely hopes to hear from you soon. She would love to continue her optical career in such a pristine, opulent environment and I can ensure you that you would not be disappointed. If for some reason you did not receive it, please call (386) 329-5211 or email SueP4@msn.com. I know she hopes to hear from you soon. Thank you for your time and consideration, considering making a wish come true, and best of luck with your new office! Thanks again, Cheri Cantu
Tips & Advices
A regular eye exam focuses on the general health of your eyes, while a contact lens exam is focused specifically on how your eyes react to contact lenses. A contact lens exam tests how well you see while wearing contacts. Your eyes are also evaluated to make sure your tear ducts produce enough tears to allow you to comfortably wear contact lenses.
The cost of contact lenses depends on the type of lens being purchased and the vision problem that is being corrected. For nearsightedness, you'll be able to purchase a box of six lenses for roughly $25. Each lens needs to be replaced after a couple of weeks, which will require you to purchase 10 boxes of lenses each year, for a total of $250 per year. Contact lenses that treat other conditions like astigmatism and presbyopia are more expensive, and can cost $500-$700 a year.
Some people may experience certain side effects when wearing contact lenses. Dry eyes may result, and some people may experience eye or eyelid inflammation. Some contact lens wearers may also develop allergic reactions to the liquid contact lens solution that is used to clean and disinfect the lens.
The cost of an eye exam can range $50-$250 or more. The cost will depend on the tests that are included, and whether the exam involves a contact lens fitting. The cost of the test will also hinge on whether the exam is performed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
An eye exam typically takes 20-30 minutes. If additional tests are required, the process could take longer. Eye exams test your sight, but they are also used to make sure your eyes are in good health. During the test, your eye care professional will ask if you've been experiencing any problems with your vision. Your eyes will be examined using a device known as an ophthalmoscope, and the movement of coordination of your eyes will be checked.
