Contacts That Fit Your Lifestyle
If you have an active lifestyle or find glasses uncomfortable, contact lenses may be the right choice for you. Our doctors are contact lens specialists who will assess your eye health and shape to help you find the perfect lens style and fit.
These disposable contact lenses can correct for near- and far-sightedness and presbyopia, and are replaced daily, biweekly, or monthly.
Soft Disposable Lenses
These disposable contact lenses can correct for near- and far-sightedness and presbyopia, and also for astigmatism.
Toric Lenses for Astigmatism
Scleral contact lenses offer vision correction for people with dry eyes or irregular corneas. They have a longer adaptation period but are more durable, offer more breathability, and are custom-built to your cornea.
Multifocal lenses are for people who need both near and far vision correction. Like eyeglass lenses, they can be bifocal, trifocal, or progressive.
What Happens During a Contact Lens Evaluation and Fitting?
Your contact lens prescription will be different from your glasses prescription. This is partly because a contact lens sits directly on the surface of your eye.
Your doctor will take detailed measurements of your cornea so that we can precisely tailor your contacts to the shape of your eye. This will include testing for astigmatism.
Keratometry & Corneal Topography
Some eye conditions can become worse with the use of contacts. Your doctor will check for diseases that may require a specialty lens, or that may prevent you from using contacts.
Your doctor will discuss what you'll be using your contacts for, what your preferences and comfort level are, and will help you choose the type of contacts that best fit your needs and lifestyle.
Choosing the Right Contacts For You
Before Ordering Your Contacts
If you've never had contacts before, inserting them can take some getting used to. We'll walk you through the process and answer any questions you have.
Using Your Contacts
After you've had your contacts in for a few minutes, your doctor will assess your vision and eyes to be certain the prescription and fit are correct.
Assessing Your Contacts
You'll be asked to wear your contacts for the next few hours, or frequently over the next few days, to determine your comfort and the clarity of your vision over a period of time. If at the end of this period you're not satisfied with them, we'll work with you to find a better fit.
