Contact lenses are a wonderful alternative to glasses and refractive surgery. Today’s advanced technology allows millions of patients to wear contact lenses comfortably and affordably, achieving clear vision without compromising eye health. We offer a wide variety of contact lenses, such as soft contact lenses, lenses for astigmatism, multi-focal contact lenses, scleral contact lenses, and rigid gas-permeable contact lenses. Special therapeutic and cosmetic contact lenses are also available.
A contact lens is a medical device. Because the lens makes contact with the eye, a precise fit is necessary. A thorough evaluation and fitting is needed to ensure a healthy contact lens fit.
The process of wearing contact lenses will start with a comprehensive eye examination. Your doctor will examine your eyes to determine if you are a candidate for contact lenses and then discuss your various options. The fitting then commences with additional tests to design an initial trial pair of contact lenses.
Most contact lens prescriptions are finalized the day they are fitted, while some fittings may take longer. Successful contact lens wear depends on healthy eyes, a proper fit, and a patient’s compliance with the prescribed wearing schedule and care system.
Contact lenses are quite safe when fitted properly, and taken care of responsibly. However, complications can occur. To minimize that risk, an annual examination is necessary to catch and prevent potential complications resulting from lens wear. We reserve the right to deny a patient a contact lens prescription due to poor compliance and care for their lenses.
