At East Memphis Optometry, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Memphis. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Landon Wallace will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, speak with our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Wallace determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Memphis optometrist, call (901) 683-4529 today.
Dr. Landon Wallace is a contact lens expert who specializes in helping patients obtain accurate, comfortable vision through the use of scleral contact lens technology.
Scleral lenses are highly customizable contact lenses that are designed to correct even the most difficult vision. Their unique features maximize hydration and provide clear vision that cannot be matched by other types of corrective devices. These lenses have a larger diameter than regular contact lenses and are fit on the sclera (whites) of your eye, leading to comfortable crisp vision.
For those patients that suffer from dry eye syndrome, Dr. Wallace can specially design these lenses to optimize comfort and provide long-lasting hydration with constant lubrication. Scleral lenses can also correct irregular corneal shapes like keratoconus to provide fine-tuned vision that was previously unavailable in other lens types.

There have been huge advancements in material and availability in soft contact lenses. These comfortable lenses are now available in many types of prescriptions, including spherical, toric (astigmatism), and multifocal. East Memphis Optometry will work with you to find the best lens to provide clear comfortable vision.
Gas Permeable Lenses
Gas permeable contact lenses were the original lens material when contacts were first introduced. Although not as well-known as soft lenses, they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision and high oxygen permeability.
