Contacts

What are Contacts?

A contact lens is a thin, curved lens placed on the film of tears that covers the surface of your eye. The lens itself is naturally clear, but is often given the slightest tinge of color to make them easier for wearers to handle. Today’s contact lenses are either hard or soft.

Among Americans who need vision correction, about 20 percent wear contact lenses for vision correction or for a fashion statement.

How do we handle your contact lens fitting?

Having a comprehensive eye exam is the most important and basic building-block in maintaining your sight. During this examination, the vast majority of patients are found to have a need for corrective lenses. Our doctors specialize in fitting contact lenses for all ranges of vision including replacing the need for bifocal glasses.

Our caring physicians have training for fitting specialized lenses for medical conditions. These specialty lenses used to treat diseases of the eye can make the difference in the quality of life for patients.

If you’re interested in contact lenses to free yourself from glasses, contact our caring staff to schedule a consultation.
