Contact Lenses

River Region Vision Source in Millbrook offers many options for contact lenses.

There are a number of reasons why you might prefer contact lenses to standard eyewear: a glasses-free look, hassle-free vision correction, wearing non-prescription sunwear and goggles, or the convenience of not having to worry about misplacing your glasses. If you have a high prescription or astigmatism, contact lenses may provide more enhanced vision correction than glasses. Today, you can even replace your bifocal glasses with bifocal contact lenses.  NightLens is also another way to correction your vision – learn more at

Your eye care provider can recommend the best contact lenses for you based on a complete eye examination and a review of your visual needs both at work and play. Since most people can wear more than one type of lens, it’s important to know what the choices are and the advantages and disadvantages to each.

Soft Lenses

These lenses are comfortable to wear and must be replaced monthly, weekly or daily depending on the type you choose. Soft lenses are often recommended for sports because they fit closer to the eye and are more difficult to dislodge. They can provide correction for most prescriptions including astigmatism. Today, with the introduction of newer materials like silicone hydrogels, which allow more oxygen to the eye, patients find it easier than ever to wear soft lenses comfortably.

Specialty/Custom Contact Lenses

Patients with irregular corneas or “hard to fit” prescriptions require a detailed custom contact lens fitting in order to maintain good eye health and an adequate level of vision. Dr. Bryan Holman is a Certified WAVE Contact Lens Designer and has great success with helping patients achieve great vision with these custom lenses.  If you have: keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, post-RK corneal ectasia, post-Lasik corneal ectasia or other corneal disease – WAVE designed custom contact lenses are right for you!  We help patients from all over the River Region – Millbrook AL / Montgomery AL / Prattville AL / Wetumpka AL.  Dr. B designs these lenses from your eyes’ “fingerprint” with advanced technology and computer software.

waveScleral Contact Lenses – are a new treatment option for patients with Keratoconus or other corneal irregularities, high prescriptions, or large amounts of astigmatism. These large diameter rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses provide better comfort and vision than previous treatment with smaller RGP’S or soft contact lenses.  Scleral contact lenses are also a great treatment option for moderate to severe dry eye!

Multifocal Lenses

In both soft and GP designs, multifocal lenses offer patients both distance and near vision correction just like a pair of bifocal glasses.

Color Contact Lenses

Enhance your eye color or even change it completely. Colored contact lenses are fun and come in a variety of colors for both light and dark eyes.

Silicone Hydrogels

Silicone hydrogels are soft contact lenses that have high oxygen permeability and are comparable to GP lenses.

Regardless of the type of contact lenses you wear, an annual eye exam is recommended to ensure the continued good health of your eyes. Schedule an appointment for an assessment and advice at River Region Vision Source in Millbrook, and we will be in touch with you shortly.
