EyeMax is so grateful for all our wonderful patients and the opportunity you have given us to care for your eyes this year!

Providing excellent care and convenience to our patients is a top priority for EyeMax. That's one of the reasons we have chosen to build our practice inside Walmart- you're just a step or two away from ordering glasses and contacts in the Vision Center.

We also understand that many of our patients prefer ordering online, so we've implemented a new program to make that process even easier! EyeMax has partnered with Dr. Contact Lens (https://portal.drcontactlens.com/) to provide a location where our patients can access their prescription at any time, and order contacts with just a few clicks. Once your prescription is finalized, it will be uploaded to the secure website where it will be accessible to you through text or email. All our patients with a current prescription will be have access to this resource. If you have insurance benefits that you need to use, we may be able to help you apply these benefits as well.

We hope this change makes your life just a little bit easier. Something we can all use in 2020! Please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 859-272-1422 if you have any questions. We’re happy to help!

Contact lens wearers need to be careful to care for their contacts properly. Improper care can lead to ripped or torn contacts, or even worse, eye infections or abrasions, which rarely but sometimes results in vision loss. People of all ages that are not capable of properly taking care of their contacts probably want to consider an alternate form of vision correction. Don't worry, though...taking care of your contacts is simpler than it may seem. With one-bottle treatments and disposable contacts, taking care of your lenses is less expensive, requires less time and involves less effort than in the past. However, there are several necessary guidelines to keep in mind.

Firstly, it is suggested that you consult with your eye doctor to receive personalized recommendations. In addition, it's important that you don't change care regimens without checking with your optometrist first. Some products can react with each other or with specific lenses and can damage your eyes. Our clinic staff can help you decide the correct treatment for your contact lenses.

Proper lens maintenance necessitates cleaning and disinfecting your contacts daily. Make sure to do this immediately after you take out your lenses. Not only will clean contacts ensure that your eyes will be safer, your lenses will feel better. Don't touch solution bottle openings to any area including your eye since it can dirty the solution. Try to avoid getting tap water on your contacts, including rinsing your lens container, as it often carries a microorganism that can cause severe eye infections. And of course, remember to dispose of your lenses when their time is up to reduce the likelihood of infection.

It's true that there may be an array of products out there, but with a little planning you can care for your lenses with ease, ensuring healthier eyes and clearer vision!
