The Patient Experience
If you are interested in contacts, or if you already wear them and need an update to your prescription, please make sure you let us know when you schedule your appointment. Eye exams for contact lenses include special evaluations that typically are not performed in comprehensive eye exams.
With a nationally recognized clinical faculty and an in-depth knowledge of the latest contact lens designs, we are conﬁdent that we can provide you with contact lenses to suit your individual needs and lifestyle. New lenses come out every 2-3 months.
Placing An Order
Contact lenses are available at our Optical Showroom. You can browse our selection of contact lenses, reading and sports vision eyewear and other eye care accessories.
Your First Appointment
During your ﬁrst contact lens appointment, your clinician will ask some additional questions about your lifestyle and contact lens preferences. This information, as well as speciﬁcs related to your unique diagnosis, will help us to understand what type of contact lens is right for you as well as create a treatment plan that is compatible with your lifestyle.
Contact Lens Fitting
Contact lenses are prescribed medical devices, and one size does not ﬁt all. You will need a contact lens ﬁtting which may include measurements of your cornea, pupil, as well as evaluation of your eye’s ability to produce tears. Once you begin wearing your contacts, your optometrist will regularly evaluate the health of your eye’s surface and the ﬁt of your contact lenses.
Contact Lens Care
Not caring properly for your contact lenses can lead to a host of problems. This can include a variety of eye infections and in some extremely serious cases, blindness. Different types of contact lenses have different care requirements. Some may need very little care — like single-use disposable contact lenses — while other types of contact lenses may require more care. Also, differences in lens wear and tear over time can lead to dryness and discomfort. Allergies, dryness and irritation may all affect your care routine. Make sure to speak with your clinician about your preferences and alert them of any decline in comfort at any point over the wear cycle.
Contact Lens Costs
The cost of your contact lenses will depend on multiple factors, including the type of contacts you need, the replacement schedule, lens design and your prescription. Your clinician will be able to help you identify the most appropriate choice to meet your individual needs.
