Contact Lens Evaluation
For current wearers, we evaluate the fit and prescription of the specific contact lens that you are wearing and make recommendations.
A contact lens prescription cannot be written until we perform a contact lens fitting and evaluated the fit of your current lenses. The contact lens prescription is generally good for about a year.
For new wearers, we recommend the best lens for you and teach you to properly wear and take care of your lenses before sending you home with your lenses. After trying the lenses for a few weeks, we re-evaluate the fit and finalize the prescription.
We fit soft contact lenses, gas permeable lenses, specialty lenses for keratoconus, and lenses for post-surgery and hard to fit eyes.
Contact Lens Types
Soft Contact Lenses: come in many varieties, including Daily Disposable (Single Use), Two Week Disposable and Monthly Disposable. These contact lenses also are available for spherical, astigmatism and bifocal correction.
Gas Permeable Lenses are the hard lenses. They work best for high prescriptions, especially with high degrees of astigmatism. They allow more oxygen to get to the eye and provide better optical quality than soft lenses, but they are not as flexible on the eye and initially are more uncomfortable.
Colored Contact Lenses are soft cosmetic lenses that require a prescription. We love to get you the right look for your eyes, including custom designs. Most colored lenses are available in prescriptions too.
Specialty Contact Lenses come in a variety of materials and are custom designed to fit your eyes, especially difficult to fit eyes or post-surgery and post-injury eyes.
