"I had an appointment with Dr. Vu and Dr. Mehtani on Wednesday. I did not have to wait for someone to usher me in for an eye scan shortly after I arrived--- which was followed by meeting with Dr. Vu. Dr. Vu is professional and personable and we had a good discussion about my issues. He answered my questions adequately and I felt good about the meeting.Next I met with Dr. Mehtani. He was very knowledgable and spent time explaining and talking about my condition. We had a very informative dialogue and he was patient and did not rush our time together. I appreciate both Doctors and thank them for assuring me and discussing how to perform home care for my situation. Highly recommended."- A.D. / Yelp / Feb 10, 2023
What is the Process of Getting Glasses or Contacts?
Once you have a comprehensive eye exam in Napa, CA, we will determine whether contact lenses or eyeglasses are good solutions for your vision issue. For many, the choice of whether they want contacts or glasses will come down to lifestyle. Some of the most common types of contact lenses we offer in Napa Valley include daily wear, disposable, bifocal, and scleral contact lenses. We also encourage our contact lens wearers to have a backup pair of glasses. The team at Eye Specialists of Napa Valley will assist you in choosing the proper fit and type of glasses or contacts within your budget. For those using vision insurance, your vision benefits may cover a portion of the costs of eye exams, contacts, and/or glasses. In addition, for those new to contacts, we provide a complimentary fitting session to teach you or your child how to put in, take out, and properly care for your contacts.

Optical Services FAQ
How long does an eye exam usually take?
At Eye Specialists of Napa Valley, an eyeglass exam usually takes around 30 — 90 minutes, depending on what assessments are needed.
Can you wear contacts every day?
Many of our patients wonder if they can wear their contact lenses in Napa Valley daily. The simple answer is yes, you can! The only things that may prevent you from wearing contacts are eye irritation, redness, or an eye infection. The key thing to remember is to always properly clean and care for your contacts to prevent eye infections and damage to your contacts.
Do I need glasses and contacts?
Even if you prefer to wear contacts, at Eye Specialists of Napa Valley, our doctors recommend that you also have a pair of glasses as a backup.
Are glasses or contacts better?
Glasses and contacts each have their pros and cons. Glasses are easy to wear, offer light and UV filtering options, can protect your eyes, and have the added bonus of being a fashion accessory. On the other hand, glasses can fog up, may feel uncomfortable to some people, and some prescriptions can distort your vision at the periphery (edges). With contacts, you don't experience any distortions. They don't fog up. They give you a more neutral, natural look and allow you to change the color of your eyes. But some people may find it difficult to put them in their eyes, they require regular cleaning and maintenance, and they can fall out. The bottom line: it comes down to what you feel comfortable with and which ones match your style and lifestyle.
