Please book your appointment today and find contact lenses matched to your needs today!

Getting Your Contact Lenses

The Eye Exam

Eye exams are essential for fitting contact lenses. During your eye exam, we will assess your eyes to determine if they are suitable for contact lenses. We will also take a detailed look into your eye health and visual acuity.

While most people can wear contacts, certain factors like dry eyes, dry environments, allergies, and persistent eye infections can make wearing contact lenses difficult.

If you can comfortably wear contacts, we will fit you for lenses matched to your prescription and needs. We offer a range of specialty lenses for those with “hard-to-fit” eyes. Please check out our selection in our Specialty Contact Lenses section below.

Once we’ve fitted you for your pair of contacts, we will provide you with all the information you need to ensure your contact lens experience is easy and comfortable. You will then be given a pair of trial lenses to wear for a few weeks, during which we will have a few routine eye check-ups to ensure your eyes are adjusting.

Specialty Contact Lenses

Rigid Gas-Permeable Contact Lenses

Rigid gas-permeable lenses (RGP) are a great option for those looking for contacts that are more durable and easier to take care of than traditional soft contacts.

Multifocal contact lenses include multiple prescriptions to correct refractive errors at varying distances. Multifocals are also a fantastic option for managing myopia development in adults and children.

Daily contact lenses, or “dailies,” are one-use-only contact lenses. These lenses are an excellent option for those who were recommended not to wear contacts for extended periods.

Toric contact lenses are specially designed to correct refractive errors caused by astigmatism. With their unique shape, they fit comfortably on the surface of your eye without rotating or slipping from their position.
