Contact Lens Exams

Contact Lens Image

At Katherine Cox OD, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in FT OGLETHORPE. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Katherine Cox 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. Cox 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 FT OGLETHORPE optometrist, call (706) 866-2111 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Cox works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at (706) 866-2111 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
