Contact lenses

Contact Lenses  are a medical device that requires a separate evaluation and prescription from your routine eye exam and glasses prescription. Contact lenses must be properly fitted and prescribed by an eye care professional.

The contact lens industry is constantly changing. We are proud to provide a full range of contact lenses, materials, services and solutions that keep up with today's technological advances and improvements.

We have access to all contacts that are approved by the FDA and available on the U.S. Market. We offer several different modalities for replacement: daily, bi-weekly, monthly, extended wear and everything from single vision, toric, bifocal/multifocal, and colored disposable lenses, to custom lenses for astigmatism and ocular disease treatment.

Our eye and vision care specialists know the importance of seeing clearly and will focus on your vision as it was meant to be.

Contact lens wear and care:

  • Always wash with soap and water and dry your hands before handling contact lenses.
  • Carefully and regularly clean the lenses as directed by your optometrist. Rub the contact lenses with your fingers in an up and down or side to side motion, never in a circular motion. Rinse thoroughly before soaking lenses overnight in sufficient multi-purpose solution to completely cover the lens.
  • Store the lenses in the proper lens storage case and replace the case at a minimum of every 3 months. Make sure to clean the case after each use, and keep it open and dry between cleanings. 
  • Use only products recommended by your optometrist to clean and disinfect your lenses. Saline solution and rewetting drops are not designed to disinfect and clean contact lenses.
  • Always use fresh solution. Never top off  or re-use what is already in the case. Contact lens solutions must be changed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, even if the lenses are not used daily.
  • Always follow the recommended contact lens replacement schedule prescribed by your optometrist.

Daily Lenses should be worn for only one day. Lenses are to be removed at the end of the day and thrown out.
Bi-weekly Lenses should be thrown away at the end of 2 weeks and replaced with a new pair.
Monthly Lenses should be thrown away at the end of 1 month and replaced with a new pair.

  • Remove contact lenses before swimming or entering a hot tub.
  • Make sure to see your optometrist for regularly scheduled contact lens and eye examinations. 
  • Improper wear and care of your lenses can lead to serious ocular infections and complications that can lead to vision loss. 
  • If you ever experience symptoms of: redness, irritation/pain, sudden blurry vision, or sensitivity to light, please contact the office for an appointment.
