Contact lenses are an excellent way to correct your vision. Today there are contact lenses to fit most prescriptions. The most important part of contact lens wear is to find the lens that both fits properly and provides the optimal vision. We will fit new contact lens wearers and provide instruction on insertion, removal and proper contact lens care. We will also reevaluate current contact lens wearers to determine if the lenses they are wearing are the proper fit and best for their visual needs.
Types of Contact Lenses
There are two major categories of contact lenses: Soft Contact Lenses and Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Contact Lenses. Regardless of the type of contacts that you are interested in, you require a thorough examination and fitting-and a valid prescription. Within these two major categories are a number of types of lenses for solving different vision problems including:
- Soft Daily Wear Contact Lenses
- Extended Wear Contact Lenses
- Disposable or Planned Replacement Contact Lenses
- Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Contact Lenses
- Contact Lenses for Astigmatism
- Bifocal Contact Lenses
