Contact Lenses Austin


Getting the right prescription for your contact lenses begins with finding the right eye doctor. Dr. Lester Kitchen understands how important clear vision and a well-fitting contact lens are to your overall wellness. He will use a deep understanding of your vision history to establish which contact lenses are right for you. Our Austin practice specializes in contact lenses for all types of eyes and has a selection that works for patients with astigmatism and keratoconus. If you need contact lenses and would like to schedule a consultation with us, contact our practice today.

Types of Lenses

At Tech Ridge Vision, we offer a number of different types of contact lenses to ensure that we have something that suits everyone. Whether you have healthy eyes or suffer from astigmatism, keratoconus, or other severe eye conditions, Dr. Kitchen can find the right lens for you. Some of the products we offer include multi-focal, custom, soft, and soft Toric lenses. Our brand-name selection includes:

  • Duette™ Multifocal: Specifically designed for patients over 40, the Duette™ Multifocal lens offers benefits that are unavailable with other contacts. The binocular vision you will experience with Duette™ Multifocal lenses will allow you to see comfortably at all distances.
  • ClearKone®: Our patients with keratoconus need a comfortable, convenient contact lens that can correct their blurry vision, and ClearKone® does just that. These innovative contact lenses are custom-fit to correct your vision needs.

Benefits of Contacts

Eyeglasses, although great for patients who wish to make a fashion statement, are not for everyone. If you are looking for a convenient, invisible solution to poor eyesight, contact lenses may be best for you. After inserting your contacts in the morning, you can forget you ever had vision problems. Great for physically active patients, contact lenses won’t slip off your face or get in the way.

Caring for Your Lenses

Keeping your lenses clean and moist will make them last longer and prevent them from irritating your eyes. Be sure to thoroughly wash your hands before handling your contacts to avoid transferring bacteria or harmful debris. Always use saline solution and contact lens solution to clean and store your lenses. Clean your contacts before each wear by placing your lens bowl up in your palm and filling it with a few drops of solution. Be sure to remove your contacts after the suggested length of wear has expired to allow your eyes to receive oxygen and keep your corneas from becoming disfigured.

During your consultation, your doctor will discuss with you the proper care, as well as the application and removal instructions for your contacts.
