Contact lenses are a unique way to correct vision without the use of glasses. We fit contact lenses for all types of prescriptions and patients. Our doctors are certified to fit lenses for patients with high levels of astigmatism and certain corneal diseases, such as keratoconus. Following an eye exam, we can help you determine if contact lenses will be the best fit for you. With numerous options and wear times, our experts can give you guidance and direction to find you the most comfortable pair.
Disposable contacts are lenses that are worn during the day, removed and cleaned overnight, and then disposed of on a 2 week or monthly schedule. We fit many brands of contact lenses, and our doctors will discuss with you what brand would work best.
Examples: Air Optix, Air Optix Astigmatism, Acuvue Oasys, Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism, Biofinity and Biofinity Toric
Daily Disposable Lenses
Daily disposable contacts eliminate the need for cases and solutions. They are very clean, comfortable and convenient. These lenses are great for kids, athletes, patients that only want contacts for “part time” use, and those wanting to eliminate hassle with contacts.
Examples: Aquacomfort plus daily disposables, Acuvue 1-day moist, and Soflens daily disposables.
Multifocal Contact Lenses
Our doctors love helping our presbyopic (my arms are to short) patients see clearly. We take the time to explain and fit you with multifocal lenses if they would be a good option for you. Prior to multifocal lenses, patients had to choose multifocal glasses, rigid (hard) contacts, or soft contacts. Now, with new technology, there is an option in contacts to provide clarity at all distances.
Examples: Air Optix Multifocal, Purevision Multifocal, Synergeyes Multifocal
Brand new to the market are a new style of contacts that blend rigid (hard) contacts with soft contact lenses. Our doctors are trained and certified to fit this special contact. The company that makes the new lens is called Synergeyes. The synergeyes lenses are designed for those that have high levels of astigmatism and want to wear contacts. These lenses also come in a multifocal style, so those with high levels of astigmatism can now have multifocal contacts that work. We can also fit patients with keratoconus, a corneal condition, with syngergeyes lenses.
