Discover the Freedom and Convenience of Contact Lenses

  • Need bifocal or multifocal contacts?
  • Rigid gas permeable or soft lenses?
  • Disposables, dailies or colored contacts?

Contact lenses give wearers a full field of focused vision no matter where you look. Because they move with your eyes, contacts help allow you to track action with sharp and clear peripheral vision. Moreover, if you lead an active lifestyle, contacts provide more freedom and flexibility to enjoy your favorite sports.

A contact lens exam will help us determine the perfect contact lens fit for your eyes and lifestyle!

    During your contact lens exam your optometrist will check for dry eye symptoms and consult with you to determine what type of contact lenses are the best fit for your lifestyle and vision needs.

Contact Lens Exams FAQs

Can dry eye sufferers wear contact lenses?

Usually, yes. While some types of contact lenses can aggravate symptoms of dry eye syndrome, such as eye dryness, redness and irritation, other contacts are perfectly suitable for dry eyes. Speak with an eye doctor near you regarding your dry eye symptoms, and they'll prescribe the perfect contact lenses for ultimate comfort.

Can a child wear contact lenses?

It's a case-by-case basis. Typically, eye doctors don’t prescribe contacts to children under the age of 11 or 12, though there are exceptions. Wearing contact lenses requires responsible care, including cleaning and disinfecting routines. Most teenagers can handle contact lens care if they’re motivated to wear contacts.

Do I need an eye exam and prescription for tinted contact lenses?

Yes! Even if you’re just using contacts to change the color of your eyes, you still need an eye exam and a prescription. Contact lenses are a medical device and require fitting by an eye doctor.
