Why Choose Contacts Over Eyeglasses?

There are various advantages to wearing contacts instead of eyeglasses in order to see clearly:

Clearer Vision

Contacts can eliminate blurriness, squinting, and headaches. Some eyeglass lenses can distort how you see things.

Nicer Appearance

Eyeglasses are a fashion statement, but they can also obscure your face. Some people prefer the cleaner look of contact lenses, which are invisible when worn.

Unobstructed View

Contacts give you a clear view from left to right and top to bottom. Eyeglass frames and lens edges can obscure your peripheral vision.

Less Fuss

Contacts don't fog up or get smudged like eyeglass lenses, meaning you're not constantly rubbing them on your shirt to clean them.


Better for Sports

Contacts are safe to wear during most physical activities. Glasses can slip down your nose when you sweat or break when playing certain contact sports.

Hybrid contact lenses are a combination of hard and soft contact lenses: a rigid gas permeable center for excellent vision and a soft outer area for maximum comfort. Patients with astigmatism, keratoconus, or post-eye surgery issues can greatly benefit from hybrid lenses. Dr. Choate's practice is Middle Tennessee's premier location for the SynergEyes® hybrid contact lens, known for its outstanding clarity.


Beautifully tinted contact lenses in a variety of vivid colors are available in the high-end optical boutique located within our Nashville area practice. Wearing a tinted lens can enhance your existing eye color or change it completely. We offer both prescription and non-prescription tinted lenses of superior quality. 

Toric High-Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a visual disorder that occurs when your cornea is more oval than round, which affects how light is focused on your retina. This can cause blurry vision. Toric lenses are specially designed soft or gas permeable contact lenses that can help patients with high astigmatism see much more clearly. Dr. Choate will expertly prescribe customized curves and powers for each lens to correct your astigmatism. 


Eye surgery or eye injuries can cause your cornea to have an irregular shape, which can compromise your vision. In cases like these, Dr. Choate and his extensively trained associates will diagnose your corneal issues during a comprehensive eye exam and prescribe a customized, non-traditional contact lens to fit comfortably and improve your sight effectively.

Great experience and extremely satisfied! I have had issues with my contacts/glasses for years now and Dr. Choate seemed to have relieved all my issues and nailed my prescription the first time on top of that. He coordinated the most in-depth eye evaluation I have ever received and felt very satisfied by the information by him and his staff given to me every step of the way.

I want to thank the staff of Choate Eye Associates. I've been wearing contacts for almost 30 years. I have been to many different eye care offices in those 30 years. Most places make you feel rushed, like you are just a number not a patient. I feel like the staff at Choate actually cares about you. Plus I like the fact they are a local company owned by local people.
