Contact Lens Fitting Examination

Our office utilizes the newest designed contact lenses made with the most technological materials. With our state-of-the-art equipments, including the most advanced corneal computer topographer from Humphrey, you will have no reason not to try or re-try contact lenses, no matter what your prescription or vision requirements are. If you've been told in the past that you can't wear contact lenses, ask Dr. So & his team about the recently introduced exciting contact lenses options. Chances are, you'll get a different answer!

Offices of Dr. So will guarantee the performance of your contact lenses. You are not required to order or pay for any contact lenses materials until a perfect trial pair (whenever trials are available) of contact lenses are found and successfully fitted on your eyes. The trial-lenses system and adequate follow-up visits will allow you to have enough time to evaluate and ensure the contact lenses you are getting are suitable for your lifestyle and visual demand. Nowadays trial lenses offered by most manufacturers represent the most critical factor in fitting patients with contact lenses accurately and successfully.

Computer Vision Syndrome Diagnosis & Treatment (PRIO)

Are you suffering from computer eyestrain? Do your eyes get tired, blurring or even burn after being in front of a computer?

You may be suffering from Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).

It is estimated that over 100 million working Americans suffer from computer eyestrain. Nearly 54 million children connect to the Internet each day either at home or in school. If you or your child spend more than two hours each day in front of a computer screen, you likely experience some symptoms of computer vision syndrome or CVS:

  • Headaches
  • Loss of focus
  • Burning/tired eyes
  • Double vision
  • Blurred vision
  • Neck and shoulder pains

The Solution is Simple.

We’ve got the PRIO instrument and lenses.

Using the recently installed PRIO diagnostic instrument that simulates a computer screen, it's a simple matter for Dr. So and his associates to diagnose your CVS problems, and produce computer eyeglasses using PRIO lenses that will allow you to work comfortably and productively at a computer.

Standard reading glasses in most cases are not enough. Because your eyes react differently to the stimulus of a computer, 70-75% of the computer users need computer eyeglasses. Only when our eyes can clearly focus at the plane of the computer screen can you experience relief from the fatiguing effects of CVS.

If you have any more questions about CVS and the PRIO computer lens, please call our office and our PRIO-certified staffs will be glad to assist you. A PRIO exam may be your first step in relieving your long-standing CVS.

Call now for your CVS & PRIO exam!

Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT): Non-Surgical Vision Correction Procedure

Dr. So has been certified successfully by Paragon Vision to perform CRT using Paragon CRT therapeutic lenses.

Similar in appearance to standard contact lenses, Paragon CRT therapeutic lenses gently reshape the corneal surface during sleep and provide clear, natural vision when the lenses are removed upon waking

Corneal Refractive Therapy is a non-surgical process clinically developed to reshape the cornea while you sleep. The result is the temporary correction of myopia with or without moderate astigmatism.

Because Paragon CRT offers freedom from glasses and the hassle of wearing contact lenses during the day, this leading-edge technology can enhance the lifestyle for those who require full time vision correction. Active individuals can freely participate in sports without the interference of glasses or bother of contacts. Eye irritation or dryness, sometimes associated with contact lens wear due to outside dust and pollutants, is eliminated.

Now you can be free of daytime contact lenses and glasses during your daily activities without undergoing surgery and enjoy great vision! Recent clinical research combined with the latest corneal surface mapping technology (Computer Corneal Topography), computerized manufacturing and space age oxygen-breathing materials have brought new science to corneal reshaping.

Sleep your way to Great Vision

Correct your vision while you sleep with safe, non-surgical Paragon CRT therapeutic lenses, and enjoy great vision 24 hours a day, without the hassles of glasses and daytime contacts.

Call now to schedule an eye examination with Dr. So to determine if you or your family members are candidates for this technological break-through procedure.
