Contact Lens Clinic

Contact Lens Clinic

While contact lenses can improve your vision as well as your appearance, they are medical devices and require expert fitting and careful instruction, as well as conscientious after care. Before you are fitted for contact lenses, you have a complete eye examination to be sure your eyes are healthy and to rule out any conditions that may prevent you from getting contact lenses. Once contact lenses have been prescribed, our clinic experts work with you to find the best contact lens for you from the variety of types, styles, materials, sizes, and colors available.

Types of Contact Lenses
a) Bifocal Contact Lenses-  can provide clear vision at all distances after age 40
b) Bifocal Contact Lenses for Astigmatism-  correct both presbyopia and astigmatism
c) Color Contact Lenses-  give your eyes a subtle or dramatic new look
d) Custom Contact Lenses- are an option for hard-to-correct vision problems
e) Daily Disposable Contact Lenses- offer convenience and a healthy wearing experience
f) Extended Wear Contact Lenses- are approved for overnight wear or naps
g) Gas Permeable (GP) Contact Lenses- often provide sharper vision than soft lenses
h) Monovision- is a good alternative to bifocal contact lenses if you have presbyopia
i) Orthokeratology Lenses- enable correction-free vision during the day
j) Prosthetic Contact Lenses- mask eye injuries or disfigurements
g) Scleral Contacts- for irregular corneas, dry eyes and more
h) Silicone Hydrogel Contacts- transmit more oxygen to your eyes
i) Special-Effect Contact Lenses- vampire, Goth, monster and anime looks
j) Toric Contact Lenses-  and other contacts that correct astigmatism

Contacts can also be described by replacement interval — that is, how often you discard the lenses and replace them with a fresh pair. Daily disposable contact lenses are discarded nightly and therefore require no care, cleaning or lens case. Other common replacement intervals are weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or quarterly; any of those lenses can be called “disposable.” Traditional, non-disposable lenses are usually replaced once a year, but these lenses are generally limited to unusual or difficult-to-manufacture prescriptions.
