Contact lenses are a great alternative if glasses don’t fit your lifestyle or look. If you’ve had trouble with contacts in the past or you’ve been told that contacts just aren’t for you, our optometrists might have the solution! We’ll examine your eyes to find the right fit, type, and brand of contact lenses for you and your eyes.
Eyes come in all different shapes and sizes, and so do contact lenses. First, we examine and test your eyes to determine your contact lens prescription (which differs from your glasses prescription), measure the shape of your cornea, and address any issues like dry eyes. Then, we’ll give you contact lenses to try and determine how well they fit your eyes with a biomicroscope. Our priority is to not only make sure your contacts help you see clearly but that they fit properly, and are comfortable as well.
We offer a variety of contact lens brands to fit almost every eye. Whether you have astigmatism or dry eyes, or want daily or bi-weekly disposable contacts, we offer contact lenses from all the top suppliers to suit your needs. We carry the following brands, so we’re sure to have the perfect contacts for you:
Multifocal contact lenses are great for those with presbyopia. If you have bifocal, multifocal or progressive lenses in your glasses, then multifocal contacts could be a solution for you. Multifocal contacts work by having different sections of the lens for different prescriptions. Concentric circles of different powers allow the lens to help you see up close and far away. Whether you’re reading or driving, multifocal contacts will keep your life in focus.
If you have dry eyes or you’re worried about contacts causing dryness, we likely have a solution for you. We carry a variety of brands and types of contacts, so we can ensure your contacts are comfortable and suited towards your eye condition. Contacts have vastly improved over the years and there are different options, like daily disposable contacts, that retain moisture better. Most importantly, we’ll always examine your eyes to make sure your new contacts are as comfortable as possible.
Toric lenses allow those with astigmatism to wear contact lenses. If you’ve been told that contact lenses aren’t for you because of astigmatism, toric lenses could be the solution. Toric lenses have different prescriptions along the horizontal and vertical axes to match the shape of your cornea, and are weighted to prevent rotation which causes blurry vision. A proper fitting is essential for toric lenses, so our optometrists will ensure that your contacts fit your eyes properly and comfortably.
Scleral contact lenses are designed for those with irregularly shaped corneas. If you’ve been told in the past that contacts aren’t an option for you, scleral contacts could be the solution. Unlike conventional contacts, scleral contacts vault the entire surface of your cornea and rest gently on the sclera (the white of your eye). This allows the contact lens to both correct the prescription and fit comfortably, particularly for those with irregular corneas. They can also help correct keratoconus and prevent dry eyes.
