Contact Lenses

Coastal Vision Center Contact Lenses

If you're thinking about making the switch to contact lenses, let us know when you make your appointment. Coastal Vision Center will take the time to make sure you get the best product for your eyes to ensure clear vision and your comfort. Our friendly staff is excited to get you on your way to a better life here in Fernandina Beach, Florida.

 

Eye Exams for Contact Lenses

If your contact lense prescription has expired and you're in need of replacement contact lenses, then it's time to schedule an eye exam. Even if you're certain you're getting the same lenses and your prescription hasn't changed, it's important to get an exam once a year. Eye exams are important for your overall eye health and making sure you don't have any problems that can cause vision loss.

An exam for contacts is the same as it is for eyeglasses. The difference is that after your eye exam is complete, you'll have a separate fitting for your contact lenses. Our eye doctors will want to take a look at your eyes with your new contacts in to see how well they fit your eyes and how comfortable they are for you.

 

Different Types of Contact Lenses

There are a few different types of contact lenses we offer and the one we suggest for you will depend on your eyes. Here are the different types of contact lenses and the differences between them:

  • Soft lenses: These are a popular choice because they are versatile and comfortable. You can get soft contact lenses that you need to replace monthly, weekly, or even daily
  • Gas Permeable Lenses: These are harder lenses and more durable than soft lenses. However, they do require a longer period for your eyes to adapt to them during which you have to wear them all of the time
  • Multifocal lenses: These are offered in both soft lenses and gas permeable lenses and allow you for both near and far vision correction just like a pair of bifocal glasses
  • Color contact lenses: These are a fun option that allows you to change your eye color!
  • Silicone hydrogels: These are soft lenses that allow for greater oxygen permeability and are a great option if you struggle with dry eyes

During your exam, your eye doctor will determine which of these lenses will work best for your eyes as well as your needs.

 

We Want to Make Sure You Get the Best Lenses

If you're new to contacts then you might be surprised by the additional lens fitting. First, we'll show you how to put them in your eyes and make sure you understand hygiene steps to ensure eye health. After you have gotten the hang of putting them in, then the doctor will take a look at your eyes again to see how well they fit your eyes.

The eye doctor will also have you blink a few times to see how well they work with the natural moisture of your eyes. After you have worn them for a while and feel comfortable in them, we'll send you home with a follow-up appointment in a week. At your follow up appointment, the eye doctor will look at your eyes again and make sure your lenses are working well for you before you buy contact lenses.

 

How to Get Replacement Contact Lenses

If your prescription is still valid and you’re in need of replacement contact lenses, just give us a call or use our Online Contact Order Form. We can order you a new supply over the phone and we’ll even call you to let you know when they have arrived.

You can also buy contact lenses after your final fitting appointment. We'll be able to work with your insurance and let you know how many boxes of replacement contact lenses your insurance will cover.

    Dr. Stackhouse is amazing when it comes to LASIK. He did a great job with my eyes, bringing me from not being able to tell there were any letters on the eye chart to being able to read the 15/20 line.While I was definitely scared going in, since they were about to operate on my eyes, he and his staff did a great job of making me feel comfortable and making it a smooth and painless process. Honestly, I can't recommend them enough, since normal eyesight has changed my life so much.read more

    Absolutely the best!! Not even a patient yet, my hub had an emergency due to something in his eye. Coastal Vision saw him right away and took care of the problem. I recently went for an appointment for new glasses. Last year I was told my right eye wasn't correctable by another eye center due to RK surgery almost 30 years ago. Well.... My new glasses from Coastal Vision are perfect. I can see near and far with clarity. I feel so happy to know there's a team if people who can help me as eyes change as you age. Thank you!read more

    Coastal Vision Center is a very diverse practice that can handle practically any eye care need and is great for all ages.Their optical shop will be the largest you’ve ever seen with a wide range of frames that can fit any budget (not like the hole in the wall eye practices that have a small selection for budget frames (on top of making you feel bad for choosing them)). They also have quite a selection of high end frames (if this is tempting, I suggest leaving the good credit cards at home - you can do some serious damage LOL). Regardless of what you choose, the optical shop will help you every step of the way and is very patient and accommodating when giving you options that work with your insurance. Even if you received your prescription elsewhere, I suggest going to Coastal Vision Center to purchase your glasses... you are much more apt to find a pair you like, with exceptional service on top of it.This practice likes to share their knowledge and has many train/intern under them, which shows how much experience they have. Each member of the clinic staff treats their patients with the highest regard and makes you feel like you’re important. The doctors are very down to earth and helpful and treat their exams more as a two-way street versus just telling you what you need and leaving. They want to make sure you’re leaving happy and comfortable with the right solution for you, as well as answering any questions or concerns you have.Overall, the clinic is caring and helpful, the optical shop is phenomenal and the front staff is friendly and efficient. Your visit may be quite a bit more lengthy than you would get at another practice, but it is worth it to get a higher level of service, care and better optical experience. I definitely would suggest this practice to anyone that is looking to make their eye care be an experience, and not “just another appointment”.read more

    I am delighted to express my gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Herron and her staff at Coastal Vision Center.Upon arrival, the receptionists were very friendly, polite and accommodating and the wait time was very short. Dr. Herron was phenomenal! She’s very knowledgeable, diligent and attentive to my needs and concerns. She thoroughly explained to me the images and reports to help me fully understand the health of my eyes. Her ability to convey genuine concern and interest in me as a patient resonated with me. All of the staff followed the CDC guidances including sanitizing the equipment before each use, wearing masks, etc. This has been my best experience in over 15 years of wearing corrective lens! This is definitely my new home for all of my vision needs. I typically don’t leave reviews but Coastal Vision Center deserves the recognition and acknowledgement for their outstanding service. I highly recommend!read more

    Be advised, there will be a 40.00 dollars charge for a procedure to test your eyes that is not covered by most insurances. I did not have a credit card on me and luckily had cash to pay it. A reminder of the charge added to the text for the appointment reminder would be nice. So, bring 40.00 dollars with you or a credit card. Dr. Heron is my doctor and she is very good at her job.read more

I did and had my first visit with Dr Herron at the Coastal Vision Center.The office staff were super nice and efficient and Dr Herron was great. Very professional . Not only do I have a new Doctor who ( whom ? ) I trust I have also saved myself two 800 mile round trips to SC every year.PS ,The office area and exam rooms/equipment were immaculate.read more

    I can't say enough good things about this entire office and staff! We were on vacation and my daughter had an ant in her eye and experienced severe swelling. We called in a panic at 4 p.m. and the front office was so nice and accommodating and said they could see her that day. When we arrived, we were greeted by a caring front office staff and there was little waiting time before she was examined by the doctor and medical staff and given a prescription that worked like a charm! From start to finish, everyone was friendly and professional. We are truly thankful for the care she received and would highly recommend Coastal Vision Center.read more
