How Contact Lenses Make a Difference

Contact lenses can be a great addition to an active lifestyle or for people who require additional eyewear for their work or leisure activities. Similar to prescription glasses, contact lenses can correct various refractive errors, including:

During your contact lens exam, our optometrists will delve into your lifestyle needs and contact lens preferences to determine suitable options for you. 

Guiding You Through the Contact Lens Journey

The process of finding the right contact lenses involves 3 essential steps: the exam, the fitting, and the trial period. Our team is here to guide you through each stage, addressing any questions or concerns you may have about your new lenses.

Before recommending specific contact lenses, we conduct a comprehensive exam. We review your medical and ocular history, assess your eyes for any conditions affecting contact lens wear, such as dry eye, and determine your contact lens prescription, which differs from your glasses prescription.

Once we establish your candidacy for contact lenses, we measure your eyes to determine the appropriate style, power, and curvature for your lenses. Using tests and technology like corneal topography, we can help you find the right fit. Contact lenses come in various styles, shapes, and sizes, and the right match is important for comfort and healthy, stable vision.

After determining a suitable contact lens type for you, we provide you with a trial pair. The trial period allows you to confirm the lenses are comfortable, provide clear vision, and are suitable for your vision and lifestyle needs. If you’re satisfied, we provide you with a contact lens prescription, and you’re on your way to enjoying clear vision without relying on glasses.

Contact Lens Maintenance Is Essential

Taking proper care of your contact lenses is key to maintaining eye health and comfort. Your optometrist will provide personalized instructions based on the specific type of lenses you wear. One universal rule is important to remember: always wash your hands thoroughly before handling your lenses to reduce the risk of bacterial exposure and prevent eye infections.

Our Range of Specialty Contact Lenses

Contact lenses fall into 2 main categories: soft and rigid gas-permeable (RGP). These categories include specialty lenses that can address unique visual needs, like myopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism.

Multifocal lenses can be ideal for people with presbyopia. They feature more than 1 prescription in the same lens, allowing you to focus at multiple distances.

Toric contact lenses are designed for people with astigmatism. They come in soft and rigid gas-permeable varieties.

ACUVUE Abiliti Soft Contacts are known for their breathable material that can keep eyes comfortable throughout the day. These daily disposable lenses are made from gas-permeable material that helps shape the cornea to manage myopia progression.

ACUVUE Abiliti soft contacts manage myopia by changing how light focuses on the retina so it can signal the eye to slow its growth and reduce myopia progression.

MiSight 1 day lenses are soft, daily disposable contact lenses designed to address myopia. These lenses are crafted with a specific focus on controlling the progression of myopia in age-appropriate children.
