"Five Stars - Dr. Held is the doctor you want to go see for Ophthalmologist. She is excellent and spends a huge amount of time with you. Very different from other doctors!"- Anonymous / Vitals / May 05, 2017
"Dr. Held is an outstanding ophthalmologist! There is no other doctor like her in San Antonio!! She spends so much time with you and always goes beyond any other doctor I have seen. She is compassion, loyal to her oath, and is a true example of what a doctor should be. The wait time is worth it. So what that she is out of network....Most excellent doctors are!! This allows the government to stay out of medical health care. "- V. / Healthgrades / May 05, 2017
What to Expect with Contact Lenses and Eyeglasses
After completing a full eye exam, Dr. Held can determine whether contact lenses or eyeglasses work best for your vision needs and personal choices. Generally, many patients prefer contacts to get clearer vision,and we offer contact lenses that help with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia, such as two week or monthly daily wear, one-day wear, toric, and multifocal contact lenses. Best of all, compared to previous designs, current contacts fit better with the majority of contact lens wearers suffering little to no discomfort. Even those who suffer with dry eyes might find new technology contact lenses that may work for them. Eyeglasses work well for people who may not be ready to try to insert contacts or who have certain eye conditions or who just prefer the simplicity and fashion of glasses. Much like contact lenses, glasses have undergone numerous innovations and feature multiple advantages, such as being budget-friendly, easier to travel with, and more durable.
While you're here for your eye exam and lens consultation, Dr. Held will help you make the best decision for your personal requirements and lifestyle. At Eye Surgeon Direct and Stone Oak iWear, we devote a lot of effort and thought to make sure you get the ideal pair of glasses and the best contact lenses. After a fitting for glasses and contacts, patients who received contacts should schedule a follow-up appointment to review the fit and ensure they work well. Even if your glasses or contact prescription doesn't seem to change, we highly recommend scheduling comprehensive eye exams every year to two to check your overall eye health.
