New to Contacts?

Wearing Contact Lenses

Wearing contact lenses are more comfortable, more convenient, and healthier than ever before. New contact lens designs, like soft bi-focal lenses and astigmatic (toric) soft lenses, make contact lens wear a reality for a wide array of people. Wetter and more comfortable materials help previous contact lens “drop-outs” wear contacts happily again.

Contact lenses are also available in terrific colors to brighten your eyes’ appearance and improve sports performance. With all the choices available, it is especially important to work with a doctor who will fit you with the best lenses for your life and lifestyle. Because contact lenses interact directly with delicate eye tissues, it is important for wearers to have annual exams, to detect problems before they threaten your eye health and vision.

Lens Fitting

One size does not fit all when it comes to contact lenses. Your eye doctor will need to take measurements to properly fit your contact lenses. Lenses that do not fit properly could cause discomfort, blurry vision or even damage the eye. The contact lens fitting is done in conjunction with your comprehensive eye exam.

If you are a first-time user, our team will teach you how to insert, remove and clean your contact lenses.
