Contacts: A Clear Choice

A contact lens is a clear, thin, dome-shaped piece of silicone-like plastic that sits on top of the eye’s surface to correct vision.

Contact lenses can be a great choice for refractive error correction if you live an active lifestyle, live in a humid climate, or just don’t like the feeling of frames on your face. 

However, since contacts need to fit your eyes more snugly than a framed lens, an exam and fitting are required to make sure the contact is the right fit for your eye.

If you are interested in trying our contact lenses to correct your vision, book a contact lens exam and fitting with us.

Contact Lens Care

There are some key principles to remember when caring for your contact lenses to protect their shape and longevity:

  • Clean your contact lenses regularly and only with a contact disinfecting solution.
  • Don’t sleep in your contact lenses.
  • Don’t wear your contacts for longer than the recommended time.
  • Keep up with your regular eye exams.
  • Make sure to put in and take out your contacts with clean hands.

About Our Contact Lens Exam & Fitting

If you have never had a contact lens exam or fitting or are new to the world of contacts, you may not know what to expect. There are two parts to starting your contact journey: the contact lens exam and the contact lens fitting. 

Both are an important part of having success with contact lenses and finding the right ones for you.

First, before you get fitted for your contact lenses, we need to examine your eyes for any eye conditions or diseases that may make it difficult for you to wear contacts, such as dry eye.

We then check your eyes for which refractive errors you’re looking to correct, such as myopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism. This will determine what type of contacts you need.

After the initial exam is complete, we can then fit your eyes for contact lenses. In order to do this, a few measurements need to be taken, such as the corneal measurement, the measurement of the pupil and iris, and a tear film evaluation

After the exam and fitting, a follow-up appointment can be scheduled to make sure the contact lenses are the proper fit.

Our Specialty Contact Lenses

We carry a variety of contact lenses to suit the needs of your vision. From traditional soft or rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses to specialty lenses that treat a specific refractive error or condition, there is a contact lens for every eye.

A toric contact lens has more curve to it than a traditional contact lens. This is because these types of contact lenses are meant to correct astigmatism. 

In astigmatism, the cornea is misshapen, causing blurry vision or eye strain. Because of the shape of the cornea in astigmatism, toric lenses create different refractive powers on the vertical and horizontal horizons of the lens.

A multifocal contact lens has more than one prescriptive power in the lens for those who have trouble seeing objects nearby and those at a distance. 

Multifocal contacts are similar to progressive lenses on glasses. There is a gradual transition between prescriptions and no abrupt line in your vision.

You’ve probably heard of the transition lenses for glasses, but you can also get them in contact lens form.

Transitions contacts use photochromic technology to adapt to the light in your environment. This can reduce the stress on your eyes from recovering from bright light and adapting to dark light.

Dealing with allergies, whether seasonal or chronic, can make wearing contact lenses difficult due to the itchiness that tends to come with them. 

Acuvue Theravision contact lenses work to treat allergies as you wear them by releasing a built-in allergy medication into your eye as you wear them. These contacts can provide up to 12 hours of relief throughout the day.

There are various types of contacts that can help with myopia control

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, contacts help to reshape the cornea at night as a way to slow down the progression of myopia. These types of contacts have been found to be effective at slowing the rate of myopia, especially in children.

MiSight 1-day contacts are worn to help slow the axial elongation for those with myopia. These contacts can also be worn by adults or children and can be worn during the day.
