Contact Lenses

If you wear contact lenses, an annual eye exam and contact lens evaluation is necessary. There are very good reasons why this is common practice. Besides making sure your prescription is up-to-date, our doctors evaluate the health of the eyes, the curvature of the corneas and inspect the eyes for microscopic complications related to wearing contact lenses, such as blood vessel growth related to a lack of oxygen to the cornea. Contact lenses are medical devices regulated by the FDA.

Today, just about everyone can wear contact lenses. With such a wide variety of healthy contact lens choices, there has never been a better time to enjoy the freedom of clear vision without glasses. Contact lenses can achieve this without irreversible surgery.

There are a wide variety of contact lenses that may aid in one’s visual needs such as spherical, colored, lenses for astigmatism, gas permeable, and bifocal or multifocal contacts. If you have been told you need bifocal glasses, multifocal contact lenses can provide clear vision for both distance and near. Our doctors will help you decide, based on your eyes and lifestyle, which lenses are best for you.
