Welcome to InVision Eye Care!
We are Fayetteville’s newest eye care facility and would love to have you as a patient. A native Arkansan and avid Razorback fan, Dr. Russ Orgain has been in private practice for 20 years and relocated his family to Fayetteville to be near extended family. He opened InVision Eye Care to provide personalized eye care to the Northwest Arkansas area. Our office is located adjacent to Planet Fitness and the Neighborhood Market near the Wedington and Salem Road intersection. We are only about a block from Interstate 49 (formerly named I-540) so access is easy.
Our office provides eye exams for glasses and contacts as well as medical eye care including treatment of ocular injuries, infections, and disease. The optical offers a large selection of the latest eyewear and our opticians will assist you in getting that perfect lens to fit your frames so you look and see your best. We hope to see you soon!
Call 479-521-2020 to schedule your appointment. Walk-ins are always welcome also.
Here are a few answers to the most common questions:
Q. HOW LONG WILL MY EYE EXAM TAKE?
Most patients should plan to be at the office less than an hour. We do everything possible to stay on schedule. In order for you to be ready for your testing at your scheduled appointment time, we ask our patients to arrive for their appointments as follows:
- We ask that new patients arrive at least 10 minutes before their scheduled appointment time to complete the necessary paperwork.
- Patients who have been at our office before are asked to arrive five minutes before their appointment time in order for your paperwork to be updated.
Q. DO THE DOCTORS TREAT EYE INFECTIONS?
Yes. The doctor is an Optometric Physician and is licensed to prescribe both topical and oral medications. Optometric Physicians not only perform eye exams for glasses and contacts but also detect, monitor and treats eye diseases, infections, and treat ocular abrasions and foreign body injuries. If you are having any difficulty with your eyes whether it is vision, eye infections, or eye pain, please call us in order for us to provide the proper treatment. In most cases we will not prescribe medications over the phone, because it is important we are able to look at the structures of the eye to determine the cause of the infection which allows us to prescribe the proper treatment and give you the proper care.
Q. CAN I WEAR CONTACT LENSES?
Each patient must be evaluated initially. However, with the advancement of astigmatism and bifocal contact lenses Dr. Orgain has great success in giving patients freedom from glasses by wearing contact lenses.
Q. AM I A CANDIDATE FOR REFRACTIVE SURGERY?
Each patient must have a thorough exam to establish if their refractive error and ocular health meet the requirements for the surgery. The Doctor will evaluate if you meet these requirements, educate you on the risks and benefits, refer you to a skilled surgeon, and closely monitor you after the surgery is performed.
Q. HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE MY CHILDREN’S EYES EXAMINED?
Eye examinations should start at 6 months of age. During early childhood, eye examinations are performed approximately 1 to 2 years apart for patients without any eye conditions. After a child enters school, eye examinations should take place every year (or sooner if the doctor is monitoring a condition more closely). Of course if you notice a vision change sooner, you should contact us immediately.
Q. WHY DO I HAVE TO HAVE MY CONTACT LENSES EVALUATED YEARLY?
Contact lenses are medical devices that may cause harm to your eyes if not fitting properly. Although you are able to detect some problems that may be occurring with your lenses, lenses can often be causing harm to your eyes without you being aware of it. Therefore, to renew your contact lenses prescription, the doctor must fully evaluate your eye health, how your contact lenses are fitting, and review your care regimen to ensure you are able too.
