Dr. Scott Drake Answers Your Questions About Contact Lenses
Q. What is the difference between an eye exam geared towards wearers of glasses and an eye exam geared towards wearers of contact lens?
A. A comprehensive wellness exam, which potentially includes a prescription for glasses, entails examining the health of the entire eye. This may include dilating the eyes. It also includes evaluating the behavior in which the eyes focus and work in concert together.

What’s New at CustomEyes?
EyeZen Lenses for Digital Viewing
Americans are using digital devices more and more every day. 90% of Americans use digital devices more than two hours a day. According to the American Optometric Association, 83% of children 10 to 17 years old use electronic devices for 3 or more hours a day.
Continued use of these devices can lead to eye strain, dry eyes, blurred vision and overall fatigue.
CustomEyes has adopted a new lens technology aimed at reducing eye strain associated with the use of electronic devices. The lenses, called Eyezen, help you see comfortably regardless of the device size and the distances you hold them. In addition, most screens emit harmful blue light. Eyezen lenses reduce exposure to blue light.
This new technology is available for all ages, children to adults. Ask your CustomEyes optician to discuss the advantages of Eyezen technology.
Our practices have tried to give back to our community through charity events, donations and volunteering. KCFEC allows me to expand upon these efforts by providing eye care to individuals who do not have the ability or means to obtain care in a more traditional office environment. I feel blessed to be part of the Kansas City community and providing eye care at KCFEC is the least I can do to show my appreciation.
CustomEyes treatment of Contact Lens Discomfort & Dry Eyes in Lenexa, Kansas
Dry Eye Syndrome, termed keratoconjunctivitis (KCS) refers to dry eyes that irritate you constantly. This annoying condition is due to insufficient production of tears or a poor quality tear composition. When your eyes aren’t lubricated well, you’ll suffer from the sensations of scratchiness, burning, watery eyes, blurred vision and/or a feeling of something gritty stuck in your eyes. The particular cause of dry eyes varies from person to person, and effective dry eye treatment is therefore also highly individual
Symptoms of dry eyes include redness, scratchiness, itching, a sensation that something gritty is stuck in your eye, excessive watering and the need to keep rubbing your eyes. While there is no cure for dry eyes, our goal is to bring you lasting relief. Additionally, if you are considering LASIK, dry eyes may prevent you from being a good candidate for this refractive surgery.
Many people love the convenience and quality vision of contact lenses. If you are interested in wearing lenses instead of eyeglasses, we’ll help you with all that you need. At CustomEyes, our eye doctors will examine your eyes to determine if you’re a good candidate for contacts, and we’ll fit you with the best type for your visual requirements.
