For patients who prefer not wearing eyeglasses, contact lenses may be a good solution. Contact lenses are available in a variety of types and can correct a wide range of vision needs including:

  • Extended wear
  • Disposable
  • Gas permeable
  • Toric to correct astigmatism
  • Monovision and Bifocal lenses to correct presbyopia

Contact lens prescriptions require three steps:

  • Determination of the lens power
  • Selection of the type of lens material which is best for you
  • Fitting characteristics (shape and size) of the lens to your eye

Our opthalmoligists and optometrists work together with our licensed opticians to help you choose the contact lenses that will fit comfortably and provide for your best corrected vision. They will give you instructions for the use and care of your contact lenses to enhance your vision and ensure the health of your eyes. Follow their instructions to the letter and you are likely to enjoy wearing your contacts for many years. Learn more about contact lenses.
