Comprehensive Eye Examinations

The best way to preserve your vision is to have comprehensive eye exams at regular intervals.  Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms and as a result, individuals are often unaware that a problem exists.

At DeSoto Vision Center, your eye exam is much more than a test to determine if you need glasses and we always schedule ample time so you will never feel rushed.  Our doctors will check your eyes inside and out to detect any potential issues and we pride ourselves on the accuracy of our eyeglass prescriptions.

Your eye exam will last approximately 30 minutes and most patients are comfortable to drive home after the exam, even after having their eyes dilated.  If you are unsure, please consider bringing a driver with you.  The effects of the dilating drops typically last for about three hours.



Eyeglass Frames

DeSoto Vision Center carries a wide variety of eyeglasses by brand name designers you know and trust, backed by manufacturer’s warranties, at prices you can afford. We specialize in Internal Free Form Optic Progressives.

We can customize your prescription to meet your exact needs for uses such as: Office Work, Computers, Night Driving, Golf, Fishing, Boating, Skiing and Industrial Safety. Just let us know if you have a specific need and we can match the right lens design and material with the right treatment or tinting to solve even the most difficult of situations.

Lens Materials Available:

HIGH INDEX: High index lenses bend light more efficiently allowing stronger prescriptions to be thinner and lighter than when made in conventional materials. These high-technology lenses absorb all harmful ultraviolet light and can be tinted to any shade or color.

POLYCARBONATE: Polycarbonate lenses are the most impact resistant and are prescribed for children and active patients. Their unique strength allows them to be made ultra thin, providing lighter, more comfortable lenses. They absorb all harmful ultraviolet rays found in light.

Lens Designs:

SINGLE VISION: Single vision lenses provide clear vision at all distances for most people under the age of forty. These lenses can be used in task specific eyewear to clear far, intermediate or near distance visual demands for people who normally wear multifocal lenses.

PROGRESSIVE: Progressive lenses are the most technologically advanced multifocal lens design. These lenses provide continuous, clear vision at all distances, without the lines found in traditional multifocal lenses. They are the design of choice for all multifocal lens wearer’s.

COMPUTER: Computer lenses use special designs and filters to relieve the eye fatigue, redness and discomfort associated with prolonged computer use. Unlike conventional readers that work only at near, these lenses allow for clear vision at intermediate and near distances.

FLAT TOP BIFOCAL / TRIFOCAL: Bifocal lenses are available with the near portion made in a variety of widths to aid in various close-up visual demands. Trifocal lenses add a segment to provide clear vision at arm’s length, that intermediate distance that is often blurred for bifocal wearer’s.

SPORT: Sport lenses offer designs to meet the special, visual needs of sports enthusiasts. Many professional athletes use particular color tints, light filters and materials to enhance their vision and performance. Polycarbonate is the material of choice for active sports. Also available are aquatic goggles and masks.

Lens Options:

Lens options can add substantially to wearing comfort and appearance.

ASPHERIC: Aspheric lenses provide improved visual and cosmetic benefits in single vision and progressive designs. These lenses increase edge-to-edge clarity and flatter, thinner and lighter conventional lenses. This eliminates the “bulgy”, magnified appearance of far-sighted prescriptions and the “small eyes”, minified look of near-sighted corrections.

POLARIZED: Polarized lenses are an exciting sunglass option that eliminates the glare reflected off the surface of objects. They are especially appropriate on or around the water and recommended for driving, fishing, hunting and all types of outdoor activities.

SCRATCH PROTECTION: Special treatments have been developed to help protect lenses from normal scratching. Carbon resin lenses can be more easily scratched than other lenses. The modest additional cost for such scratch protection is usually a prudent investment.

ULTRAVIOLET FILTER: Special treatment is available for carbon resin lenses to completely absorb the harmful ultraviolet rays found in light. High index, photochromic and polycarbonate lens materials automatically provide ultraviolet protection at no extra cost.

ANTI-REFLECTIVE: Anti-reflective lenses are much like those used on fine cameras. Distracting reflections are removed from the front and back surfaces of the lenses. This improves the quality and clarity of vision, reduces eye fatigue and enhances the wearer’s appearance.

PHOTOCHROMIC: Photochromic lenses are as clear as regular lenses indoors, but they automatically darken outdoors. The brighter the Sun the darker they get.



Contact Lenses

We also carry a wide range of contact lenses, from disposables to colored contacts, from the top brands in the industry including Bausch and Lomb, Acuvue, Pro Clear, and more.Contact lenses are a popular alternative to wearing glasses; we do recommend that you have a pair of spectacles, in your current prescription, to wear when contact lenses are not suitable. Contact lenses are considered elective eyewear in most instances. Many people choose them for cosmetic, safety, recreational, and convenience reasons. There are contact lenses available that will allow almost anyone to enjoy the comfort and excellent vision that a well-fit contact lens provides.

After your contact lens prescription has been finalized you will be offered the opportunity to purchase up to a one-year supply of contacts through our office. Our prices are competitive and we are happy to provide these services allowing you to get your contact lenses from a Dr. you trust.

We offer a variety of contact lenses:
Disposable lenses; Frequent replacement lenses; Conventional lenses; Cosmetic/Colored lenses; Bifocal/Multifocal lenses; Rigid gas permeable lenses; Astigmatic lenses
