Getting eye surgery is a serious decision, and even though the benefits that you can get from having it are impressive, there are considerations that have to be thought of, including whether you are a good candidate for the procedure and if you are likely to see the results you desire. At Heritage Eye Care, we’re pleased to offer our cataract and LASIK eye surgery consultations, during which you will have the chance to ask any questions you have, and learn if you are qualified for your surgery of choice. It’s all done in a relaxed and thorough manner by our Arlington optical.

Cataract surgery is typically done when eyeglasses or contact lenses are no longer offering you the improvement you need for correcting blurry and cloudy eyesight that results from the effects of this eye disease. Cataracts are buildups of protein that attach to your eyes’ lenses. Those buildups cannot be removed, but your lenses can. And that’s what cataract surgery is all about: removing your natural lenses and replacing them with new prosthetic ones called intraocular lens implants, or IOLs. Our Arlington optical will determine if this is the right time for you to have cataract surgery and discuss all of the pros and cons as they relate to your unique circumstances. The same is true for our LASIK consultations. Get a more permanent solution for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Rely far less on your glasses or contacts. Maybe you will be able to rid yourself of them entirely. LASIK is done with lasers, meaning that there are no stitches or bandages required, and healing time is extremely quick.

For both cataract surgery and LASIK, you can count on our Arlington optical to guide you in the right direction. It is our goal to ensure that you enjoy the highest level of sharp and clear vision possible. Schedule a consultation today by calling our office and arranging a convenient time to come in.

There are many advantages that contact lenses offer. They provide a more natural type of vision than eyeglasses do. In addition, they let you retain your full range of vision, including side-to-side (peripheral). Perhaps best of all, with contacts your facial appearance remains unaltered. If you’ve never worn contacts before, whether you are switching from eyeglasses or you believe you need vision correction for the first time, just make an appointment with us to be examined by Dr. Opara. You should have a complete eye checkup once per year to detect changes in your vision and also to be screened for common eye diseases because they don’t have any symptoms in their early stages. Our Arlington eye care is committed to your optimal eye health and helping you achieve the best vision that you’re capable of having.

There are two basic types of contact lenses, soft and hard. With soft lenses, you have four varieties to suit your lifestyle and comfort level. Daily wear allow you to keep them in for up to 18 hours. Extended wear can be kept in overnight. Disposable are worn just once and then discarded. And color-changing contacts give you the pleasure of slipping into a totally new eye color. You don’t even need vision correction from our Arlington eye care to wear them. Just enjoy them as a fashion accessory.

Hard contact lenses, also called rigid or gas-permeable, may take a little more time to grow accustomed to than soft lenses. But they are the best choice when you have severe nearsightedness or astigmatism. And they provide sharper and clearer vision than soft contacts. Which type of contact lens is the best for you? Our Arlington eye care will assist you in making that determination.

Because contacts are inside your eyes, it is essential that we give you a contact lens exam, checking those parts of your eyes that touch the contact lens. This includes your corneas, conjunctiva, and eyelids. We want to ensure you have maximum comfort and minimum chance for eye irritation, inflammation, or infections. We’ll also do a fitting so that your contacts are properly centered, to make certain you are getting the most out of them. That’s what our Arlington eye care is all about.

Your eyes are too important to risk. But so many patients of Dr. Nancy Opara’s misuse their contact lenses and put the health of their vision at risk. To make sure your eyes and vision stay healthy while wearing contact lenses, please following these few guidelines as recommended by your Arlington contact lens eye doctor, Dr. Opara of Heritage Eye Care.

For many patients, it takes several days for their eyes to get used to wearing contact lenses. The best way to maximize visual comfort and keep your eyes healthy is to follow a wearing schedule for the first few days. For the first day, you should only wear your soft contact lenses for six hours. Over the next five days, increase these increments by two hours each day, until you get to twelve hours. Our Arlinton Texas contact lens optometrist, Dr. Opara advise that you do not wear your contact lenses for longer than twelve hours a day until

your first follow-up visit at Heritage Eye Care. Also, if your eyes become red, irritated, painful or if your vision gets worse, while wearing contact lenses, take then out immediately. Dr. Opara advises that you thoroughly clean the lenses and give your eyes a few hours to adjust before you attempt to put the contacts back in. If this problem persists, contact Heritage Eye Care in Arlington and schedule an appointment with your eye doctor.

The most important part of contact lens care is properly storing and cleaning them. Infectious organisms, bacteria, and deposits can build up on the surface of your contact lenses over time, which is why it is so important that you keep them clean and disinfected. There are four main steps in proper contact lens care. Our Parowan eye doctor suggests that you first clean the lens to remove dirt, mucous and other debris. Disinfect the contact lens to kill bacteria and other germs on the lens. Rinse the lens to remove the solution you store your lens in. And lastly, use enzyme drops to remove protein and other deposits that build up on the lens.
