Whether you are considering wearing contact lenses for the first time, or if you are looking for the latest technology, our team will help you maximize your comfort and vision. We fit contact lenses for every person and every lifestyle.

Contact lenses are healthy to wear, require very little maintenance, and allow for freedom from glasses.

Are you a good candidate for contact lenses?

Contacts can help with:

  • Near-sightedness
  • Far-sightedness
  • Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia (requires both near and far distance correction)
  • Changing your eye color
  • Sports

Ask your eye doctor if you are a good candidate for contacts!

Where to start?

There are various measurements and considerations that are required when wearing contact lenses-such as your overall health, allergies, lens material, corneal health, eyelid health, spectacle prescription, and visual needs. For these reasons, a contact lens exam is needed, which is in addition to your routine eye exam. It is important that each lens fits properly, in order to protect your eye’s surface. A contact lens prescription is separate from your glasses prescription and is required for each type of contact lens you might use.
We typically recommend daily disposable lenses for many of our patients who experience dryness or discomfort. Daily disposable contact lenses are the ultimate in convenience, and are one of the healthiest options for your eyes. We also offer bi-weekly, monthly, rigid gas permeable and scleral lenses. Your optometrist will determine which lens is the best option for you.

Contact Lenses and Your Eye Health

It is always our goal to advise you on the best options for your individual vision needs. If you are new to contact lens wear or if you need a refresher in contact lens techniques, we have a dedicated contact lens specialist who will offer
one-on-one education, so you can comfortably and safely insert, remove, and care for your contact lenses.
