How Do Contact Lenses Work?
Contact lenses work almost exactly like glasses. When worn, they bend and focus light on your retina, allowing for sharp, clear vision. The big difference is that no one else can tell you're wearing them!
Like glasses, contacts are appropriate for a wide range of prescriptions. They can help patients with refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia (age-related farsightedness) see life clearly. If you wear eyeglasses, there's an excellent chance that contacts are right for you as well.
Our Goodlettsville optometry office is also an optical boutique offering a vast selection of the latest eyeglasses and contact lenses designed to address all kinds of vision concerns. Patients seeking sharper vision can find help with our board-certified optometrist, no matter the need.
Contact Lenses Are Easy to Wear

"Knowledgeable and so helpful." Your Clear Vision Is Our Mission
Everyone at Choate does a great job. They are friendly, knowledgeable, patient, and go above and beyond in their care. I’ve had to go to other offices because of insurance issues and am so happy to be back at Choate!View on Google
My boys and I have been going to Choate Eye Associates for years. Dr. Choate and his staff are knowledgeable and so helpful. My eyes are hard to fit for contacts and at one point I was told I couldn’t wear contacts. Dr. Choate worked with me until we found ones that would work. We have been going there ever since. I highly recommend them.View on Google
Are Contact Lenses Popular?
Are Contacts Covered by Insurance?
Yes, contacts are usually partially or completely covered by insurance, depending on your vision plan. Keep in mind that contacts used for cosmetic purposes, like eye color-changing lenses, are not eligible for coverage. Choate Eye Associates accepts most types of insurance. Reach out to us at any time to confirm your coverage with our friendly, knowledgeable staff.
We also accept financing through CareCredit® to ensure the benefits of contacts are affordably available to all our patients, regardless of insurance status. CareCredit offers loans that carry little to no interest. You can pay in monthly installments that complement your unique budget.
Contact Lens FAQ
Can I wear my contacts in the bath or shower? What about while swimming?
As a rule, contact lenses and water should never mix. Exposure to water can affect the way the lens interacts with your eye and may even cause an eye infection if water finds its way between the lens and your eye. Avoid wearing contacts while bathing, swimming, in the sauna, or anywhere else they may be heavily exposed to water.
How do I keep my contacts clean and in good condition?
The only things you’ll need to maintain your contacts are a contact lens case and a special disinfecting solution made for contacts. Dr. Choate can recommend the right cleaning solution for your lenses. You'll use the disinfecting solution rather than soap to clean your contacts. Always store them within the special case to keep them from getting dirty or lost.
My kid is interested in wearing contacts instead of glasses. Is this a good option?
Contacts can be a great choice for responsible young patients who don't want to wear eyeglasses. Though we don't recommend contacts for children under 10, tweens and teens are often excellent candidates. Dr. Choate will be happy to talk to you and your child about this option together.

Choate Eye Associates is simply the best optometry practice in the Nashville area! Dr. Choate and his staff are professional, friendly, and vitally important to me and my quality of life. Prior to finding Dr. Choate, I visited several other practices in failed attempts to find someone who understood how to manage my gas permeable contact lenses. Dr. Choate is extremely skilled and dedicated to providing the best care possible, and I have been a loyal patient now for years. I highly recommend making the short drive to visit his practice!View on Google
