CONTACT LENSES

Wilmington Family Eye Care provides soft contact lenses as well as speciality lenses for eye disease.

We have been fitting specialty contact lenses for years and have seen some incredible changes in that time. By far the most exciting changes have occurred in the last few years. Although rigid contact lenses are a shrinking segment of the industry, we still have a large number of patients who wear them.

The gas-permeable lens materials available today far surpass those available just a few years ago in terms of eye health and comfort.

Allergies can be particularly annoying to contact lens wearers. In the past many people had to quit wearing their lenses for a month or two during the allergy season. New lens materials and allergy medications have made it possible for these people to eliminate itchy eyes. These medications such as Patanol and Alocril are amazingly effective and safe even in children as young as three.

Diabetic Eye Exams

Diabetes is a leading cause of blindness.  Our doctors will assess for damage to small vessels and communicate with your primary care physician.   The early stages of damage do not cause changes in vision and you will not have symptoms. Only an eye exam can detect the problem and prevent vision loss.

Macular Degeneration

Our doctors are the first to lead the revolution in vision loss prevention through Adapt Dx - a test that can detect age related macular degeneration (AMD) 3 years earlier.  Early detection leads to better vision outcomes.
