Contact Lenses

Whether you have been wearing contact lenses for decades or are ready to try them out for the first time, our skilled specialists are ready to make sure your contacts give you a fit as custom as you are. A contact lens fitting with one of our providers will include all the necessary measurements that make sure your new lenses match the curvature of your eye and will be so comfortable you forget you’re even wearing them. We have specialists that can achieve fitting even the most complex prescriptions and are ready to help you take the next step in your contact lens journey.

In an effort to not only make sure you are getting precise vision with your new contacts, we want to make sure you have all the protection you need when you are outside and enjoying your new, clear vision. When you purchase an annual supply of contact lenses, we will give you a complimentary pair of polarized Suntrends brand sunglasses to make sure your eyes have the full UV protection they deserve wherever life may take you.

We work with most insurances and are able to file all necessary claims to make sure you don’t miss out on any benefits you may be entitled to as well as offer any available manufacturer rebates that may be applicable to you.

Since life doesn’t stop when you need a refill, we also offer a convenient online ordering system. You can take advantage of this service by simply clicking on the link below:
