Contact Lenses

We offer specialty Contact Lens Fitting

New advances in contact lens technology allow most people to successfully wear contact lenses, even those with astigmatism or bifocal requirements. You will quickly recognize that we go beyond the “one size fits all” approach to contact lenses and understand the importance of personal attention when it comes to your vision and comfort.

Doctors Tamela Murray and Josh Nichols will thoroughly evaluate your visual needs, prescription, and long term eye health to determine which brand and type of contact lens provides you the most convenience, comfort, and eye health.

RGP Lenses

For those patients that have had a difficult time finding lenses that provide good enough vision for their lifestyle, there are RGP or “hard” contacts. These lenses do provide better vision in most cases, but are usually a bit more difficult to adjust to comfort wise. There are many patients in these lenses that are completely happy and unwilling to switch to soft contact lenses.

Silicone Hydrogel Lenses

Another category of lenses that are fairly new to the market are the silicone hydrogel lenses. These lenses can provide many times more oxygen to the eyes compared to other category of lenses. These lenses are actually providing some patients with a second chance to remain in soft contact lenses. If there is a significant risk of failing ocular health due to lack of oxygen to the cornea, then these lenses may provide the needed oxygen and therefore may extend a patient’s ability to remain in soft lenses.

Hybrid Lenses

Hybrid contact lenses combine the visual clarity and therapeutic aspects of Gas Perm lenses with the comfort of Soft Lenses.

Scleral Contact Lenses

Scleral lenses are large-diameter rigid gas permeable lenses. If you want to wear contact lenses but have had trouble wearing them in the past, or you’ve been told you are not a good candidate for contacts, scleral contact lenses may be the solution you are looking for.   They are called “scleral” lenses because they completely cover the cornea (the clear dome of tissue that covers the colored part of the eye) and extend onto the sclera (the white part of the eye that forms the outer wall of the eye). Because of their size, they do not fall out and dust or dirt particles cannot get under them during wear. They are surprisingly comfortable to wear because the edges of the lens rests above and below the eye lid margins so there is no lens awareness.

Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)

Corneal Reshaping with CRT Contact Lenses can be an ideal vision correction method for active children, especially those involved in sports, or children who are genetically prone to having their nearsightedness progress year after year. The principle is similar to the use of a dental retainer used by an orthodontist to realign crooked teeth. The vision retainers are similar to contact lenses and are only worn at night while sleeping. They are then removed upon awakening to provide clear vision without using glasses or contact lenses! The retainers are comfortable and very easy to care for.  CRT does not work on everyone and needs to be performed in a very exact and meticulous manner.

Extremely professional not prejudiced against any customer in they do everything they can to help service our needs. Out of all the eye doctors in Somerset this is the one that I have always came back 2 through the years. I just want to say that they have amazing staff and doctors, I always thought that when somebody says that they feel like they are at home at a place like this it sounds corny, but really and truly that's what it's like there.

Dr. Murray and her staff at Eye Health of Stanford and Eye Health of Somerset are excellent! My family and I have been going to them for 20 years now and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. They also have an exceptional technician Callie Rogers who goes above and beyond to make sure my family’s needs are better!

Very friendly, courteous and thorough in exam. The only thing I could suggest. Is scheduling fewer patients at same time. Took a while to get seen by optometrist. Only one there and they kept her really running.

Moved from Northern KY area last year to Stanford, KY. I needed to have my eyes checked due to not being able to read small print. I went to see Dr. Murray for a checkup and I needed a new prescription. The exam was thorough, the ladies in the office were friendly and Dr. Murray took her time with me. A very pleasant experience. I am thankful I found Eye Health of Stanford to take care of my aging eyes!!
