Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a safe and effective way to correct many vision problems. There are various options for nearsighted, farsighted, astigmatic patients. Our office carries contact lenses from all the major manufacturers as well as custom lenses, such as scleral lenses and rigid gas permeable lenses, for patients who have traditionally not had success with soft contacts. We offer prescription and non-prescription colored contacts and the newest technology available in contact lenses, including blue light-blocking lenses!

Fittings & Evaluations

Proper fitting and yearly contact lens evaluations are essential to prevent long-term complications such as painful abrasions or sight-threatening infections. During the evaluation, one of our doctors will determine if your eyes are healthy enough to wear contacts. If they are, the doctor will discuss with you which lens type would be most appropriate and perform a contact lens fitting. As part of the fitting, you will be provided with lenses for a one-week trial so that you can assess the comfort and vision of your new contacts. At the one-week follow-up, if the lenses are meeting your visual needs and the doctor approves of the fit, you will be provided with a prescription.

Feel free to contact us if you are interested in learning more about our contact lens options. We provide contact lens training classes for new wearers to ensure your comfort and satisfaction with our lenses prior to ordering.
