COVID-19 Update:

Contact Lenses

Whether you are a first time contact lens patient or a patient with specialized needs, our staff will utilize the latest technology and lens materials to customize a fit for you. A contact lens prescription and an eyeglass prescription are not the same. Our contact lens fitter will use the numbers from your eyeglass prescription as one of the pieces of information to properly fit you for contacts. Because the contact lenses actually touch your eye, additional measurements and evaluations are required to ensure a precise and healthy fit.
