Different eyes call for different contacts, and we’ll find the ones that are right for you.
If you are already a contact wearer, then you know how convenient contacts are. If you don’t wear contacts and are thinking of trying them, you’ll probably discover that you love them too! They’re an amazing solution for people who don’t like wearing glasses or want hassle-free vision correction that allows you to wear non-prescription sun wear and goggles.
Contacts are an ever-evolving product, and there are lots of different types of them on the market. So when you come in for your contact lens fitting, our doctors will examine your eyes, then recommend the best option for you based on your prescription and overall eye health. After we order you a free trial, our staff will sit down with you and teach you how to insert, remove, and care for your new contacts.
(Psst…if you’re a new contact lens wearer or haven’t worn them in a while, download our free Contact Lens Care Guide.)

These lenses are known for how comfortable they are and must be replaced monthly, weekly or daily depending on the type. Soft lenses are often recommended for sports because they fit closer to the eye and are more difficult to dislodge. They can provide correction for most prescriptions including astigmatism. Today, most contacts are made with newer materials like silicone hydrogels, which allow more oxygen to the eye and patients find it easier than ever to wear soft lenses comfortably.
Gas-Permeable (GP) Lenses
Made of moderately flexible plastics, GP lenses offer sharp vision and correct most vision problems. They are more durable than soft contact lenses and can be easier to handle and care for, but they also take longer to get used to and need to be worn consistently to keep your eyes adapted to them.
In both soft and GP designs, multifocal lenses offer patients both distance and near vision correction just like a pair of bifocal glasses.
Color Contact Lenses
Want to enhance your eye color or even change it completely? Colored contact lenses are such a fun option! And they come in a variety of colors for both light and dark eyes.
Scleral Contact Lenses
Scleral contact lenses are large contacts that rest on the sclera, the white of the eye, and create a tear-filled reservoir over the cornea. Scleral lenses are designed to treat a variety of eye conditions, many of which do not respond to other forms of treatment. Scleral contact lenses can be used to improve vision due to corneal irregularities such as Keratoconus, Pellucid Marginal Degeneration, Post Surgical Corneas, Trauma, Corneal Scars, and some corneal dystrophies/degenerations. Scleral lenses have also been successful in treating severe dry eye.
