Contact Lenses Your Optometrist Offers

There are a variety of contact lens options available today. We'll talk about this variety of options when you come in to see us for an example. We offer most of the options you need including daily contacts (which you'll take out and put in every day) as well as extended contacts (which can be worn overnight). We'll talk about which are right for your eyes and what your responsibilities with them will be. We also offer colored contacts. These can help to change the color of your eye. And, we offer hard-to-fit contacts for those who may not have a simple prescription.

Hard-to-Fit Contacts We Offer

Hard-to-fit contacts are actually not all that uncommon. Those who need them often have a sensitivity to consider. Some have astigmatism or a unique shape to the eye. Others have very sensitive eyes that make it hard to actually see well with contacts. We offer some of the best brands and products to meet these challenges. This includes toric lenses for astigmatism. We also offer brands such as Paragon CRT & DREAM lenses for ortho-k. And, we offer Atlantis™.

Brands We Carry

It is important to choose contact lenses that are from a quality manufacturer. This can impact your vision and it will help you to have both reliable vision but also a comfortable fit. When you come in for your appointment, we'll discuss a variety of brands and we can then make a recommendation about which is right for you. We currently carry brands such as Cooper Vision, Vistakon, Bausch & Lomb, and Ciba Vision.

Which Contacts Are Best for Your Eyes?

The good news is you do not have to decide on your own which contacts are best for you. As noted, the first step is to get a full contact lens exam. During this process, we'll learn about the shape of your eye, the overall prescription you need, and the health of your eye. Using this information, we'll create a recommendation for you. We also take into account how you want to use your contacts, such as if you want extended wear options or if you would prefer a fresh pair every day. We'll also help you to fit them and find out how well they feel.
