Contact Lens Exams

At Xceptional Eye Care, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Chicago. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Trangdai Hoang 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.

Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Hoang 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. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Chicago optometrist, call 773-274-1880 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Hoang 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 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 you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at 773-274-1880 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.

Cosmetic Lenses

Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage any color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Cosmetic lenses are also available to transform your eye color. Call us at 773-274-1880 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.

  • "I loved Dr. Hoang! She was very thorough, asked lots of good questions about my medical history and her staff was terrific. I ended up with a beautiful pair of Tiffany & Co black frame with little crystal flowers on each temple. If I weren’t moving out of state this summer, I’d go to her regularly for eye checkups."
