Contact Lenses at Executive Eye Care

At Executive Eye Care, we are dedicated to providing the best eye care for patients in Houston and surrounding areas. That's why we are happy to provide contact lens exams for those looking for an alternative to wearing glasses. Dr. Jessica Murrell can determine the best fit and type of contact lenses for your vision and lifestyle. We also advise you on how to wear, maintain, and replace your contacts.


Types of Contact Lenses

Soft Contact Lenses

Soft contact lenses are made of a soft material that allows oxygen to pass and get to the cornea. They are usually very comfortable and are the most common types of eye care contact lenses. They usually come in Dailies, 2 week and monthly replacement schedules. Dr. Murrell fits single vision, mono vision, toric, and mult-focal contact lenses. There are also toric multi-focals we can prescribe. This is the art of optometry, where every eye is unique and we find the best fit and vision for you.

Rigid Gas Permeable Contact Lenses

Rigid gas permeable lenses, also known as hard contact lenses, are not as common and prescribed for people suffering from astigmatism and myopia. Dr. Murrell can prescribe single vision, mono vision and bifocal RGPs.

Disposable Contact Lenses

Disposable contact lenses are soft contact lenses that can be worn once then are thrown away. Some are also disposable weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

How to Care for Contact Lenses

Proper eye care is vital when wearing contact lenses to prevent damage and infections to your eyes. We will ensure you know how to properly insert and remove your contacts during your contact lens exam. Common ways to care for your contact lenses include:

  • Practice good hygiene when wearing contact lenses. Wash your hands with water and soap before inserting or removing the lenses.
  • Only use the recommended solution for disinfecting your lenses. Any other solution may damage the lenses. Never use tap water to clean or store lenses in.
  • Always leave the lenses in their closed case after disinfecting them.
  • Replace contact lenses as recommended by our optometrist. Following the replacement schedule will prevent problems and ensure your eyes are comfortable.
