Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are constantly changing to be more comfortable, provide better vision and to allow more people to wear them. Our offices are proud to provide a full range of contact lenses and services that keep up with today's technological advances and improvements in contact lens wear. Unlike others, we are not limited to prescribing only a few brands of contact lenses. Our practice is committed to providing a wide selection to guarantee the health, comfort and vision for our patients.

We customize and prescribe all types of soft and rigid gas permeable contact lenses including:

• Toric Lenses for Patients with Astigmatism

• Bifocal Contact Lenses for Those Over Age 40

• Tinted Lenses in Many Different Colors

• Specialty Lenses for Patients with Keratoconus and Achromatopsia

• Extended and Flexible Wearing Schedules to Fit Your Lifestyle

• Daily Disposables to Annual Replacement Lenses


Multifocal Contact Lenses

As we age, the lens in our eye slowly becomes harder which in turn makes it more difficult for us to focus when reading up close. For most, this begins to occur somewhere around 40 years old. Many people do not want to have to wear fulltime eyewear and/or reading glasses. With many new advancements in contact lens materials and styles, we are able to fit many patients in multifocal contact lenses. These lenses allow for vision in the distance and for reading.


Customized Contact Lenses

Our doctors specialize in fitting customized lenses to treat keratoconus and achromatopsia. Our doctors  see patients from around the world for specialized contact lenses to help improve the patient's vision and life. They work to customize the lens to properly fit the patient to maximize vision. Depending on the condition, specialized custom tinting may be needed to help improve light sensitivty these patients may have as well.


Healthy Contact Lens Wear

It is very important for patients to follow the guidelines set by their doctor for contact lens wear. Our doctors select lenses for you based on their comfort, fit and vision. Below are several links to our guidelines for healthy eyes while wearing contacts, proper insertion for insertion and removal and other important guidelines for contact lens wearers.

Cleaning Solutions

There are many different solutions available for your contact lenses. We will provide you with a sample of the best cleaning solution to fit your needs.

Rewetting Drops

The use of rewetting drops may be needed to help keeping the contact lens hydrated and the eye lubricated while wearing them. These solutions are also good for removing debris and protein which may be building up on the lens. You may use rewetting drops as much as you need to alleviate your symptoms. If you do a lot of reading or computer work, you may experience more dryness related symptoms due to a decrease in blinking when doing these tasks and using these drops will help. Always make sure that the rewetting drop is specifically labeled for use on contact lenses or you could damage your lenses.


Problems with Your Contacts

Contact lens wear is a great way to correct the refractive status of your vision and can improve your cosmetic appearance by not having to wear glasses. However, all contact lens wearers have a risk of developing the following complications related to their contact lens wear:

  • Bacterial infection
  • Inflammation of the eye
  • Abrasion or ulcer of the cornea
  • Dry eyes

These ocular complications, which are usually mild and can occur at any time, may consist of redness, pain, irritation, burning, itching, light sensitivity and/or discharge coming from the eye.

The treatment(s) for these complications include antibiotic, steroid and/or lubricant therapies to resolve the complication(s).  If you experience any of these symptoms, you should remove your contact lenses immediately and report these issues to your doctor at 765-348-2020.
