81A-00003428-0011A contact lens is a corrective, cosmetic or therapeutic medical device worn on the eye. In order to maintain the health of your eyes, contact lenses must fit properly. There are many types of contact lenses, and our doctors will determine the best option based on several important factors. A contact lens prescription is determined by an evaluation of the lens, the eye’s response to the lens and visual acuity. 

At our practice we fit potential wearers, refit dissatisfied wearers and renew prescriptions for contact lens wearers of all types. Your ability to wear contact lenses comfortably, safely and with great vision is what we strive for.

What to expect

Current contact lens wearers

During your comprehensive eye exam, our doctors will evaluate your existing contact lenses by examining the fit and vision. Previous patients who are in the optimal lens for their refractive error and the health of the eye will receive an updated prescription of their lenses. This level of service may be available to new patients during their comprehensive routine eye examination if the new patient is wearing their current lenses, has a copy of the previous prescription and no change in the lens brand or type is necessary. If our doctors determine that you need a change in your contact lenses, a contact lens refitting will be scheduled. 

Potential contact lens wearers

When it comes to contact lenses, one size does not fit all. Proper fitting of contact lenses is crucial for comfort, safety and success. At your comprehensive eye exam the doctor will determine whether your eye health is appropriate for contacts and which lens is right for you. At that time contact lens trials will be ordered and a fitting will be scheduled. At the fitting the doctor will evaluate the lenses and visual acuity. An ophthalmic technician will provide insertion and removal training and give complete instructions on contact lens handling, cleaning and a wearing schedule. You will be provided with trial lenses, a cleaning solution kit and educational information.  Once there has been a successful trial period a contact lens prescription will be provided.
