 Contact Lens Evaluations and Services

In the past few years, there have been some very exciting advances in contact lens technology in regards to both Contact Lens Solutions to Contact Lens Materials. In both aspects, these improvements in technology have improved the overall health and comfort of contact lens wear. We stay aware of these changes and use only the best quality, healthiest and most breathable contact lenses available.

We expertly fit and offer the following types of contact lenses.

  • Contact Lenses for Dry Eyes

  • Contact Lenses for Astigmatism

  • Monovision Contact Lenses (Bifocal Alternative)

  • Bifocal and Multifocal Contact Lenses

  • Cosmetic Contact Lenses

  • Gas Permeable Contact lenses (also know as "hard" or "rigid"

  • Custom Contact Lens designs

If you are NEW to CONTACT LENS WEAR, we must first determine your candidacy of becoming a contact lens wearer by performing a Vision and Eye Health Evaluation as well as take measurements of your cornea. The Vision and Eye Health Evaluation is a very important step in determining if your eyes are healthy enough to wear contact lenses. Once we have determined that your eyes are healthy enough for contact lens wear we can proceed with the contact lens fitting and training. The training involves instructions on proper care and handling of the lenses, as well as insertion and removal techniques. Once you are comfortable with handling, 

caring and inserting and removing your contact lenses, we will schedule a follow-up examination to evaluate the contact lens fit, comfort, vision and answer any questions you may have.

If you are a CURRENT WEARER OF CONTACT LENSES, we must first determine that your eyes are healthy enough to continue contact lens wear by performing the Vision and Eye Health Evaluation. Once determining that your eyes are healthy enough to continue contact lens wear, we will evaluate how your current contact lenses fit and discuss all of your contact lens options. After the optimal lens is fit on your eyes, you will be scheduled for a follow-up exam to recheck the lens fit, comfort and your eyes health. If no problems exist, you are then able to order your annual contact lens supply thorough whom ever you wish.

For your convenience, we carry a large supply of diagnostic "trial" contact lenses in our office so we may expedite your contact lens fitting process; however, sometimes we must order your diagnostic lenses and have you return to the office when they arrive to evaluate the fit, design and performance of the contact lens once on your eyes.

PLEASE NOTE: Some insurance plans do not consider a contact lens evaluation as part of an annual comprehensive examination (not a covered service). Therefore, unless specified by your insurance company, a contact lens evaluation is an out-of-pocket expense. Please check with your insurance company or call our office for more information.
