Contact Lens Services

Contact lenses are available in many prescriptions for all your vision needs. Whether you are far-sighted or near-sighted, need bifocals, or weren’t successful in the past, we are confident we can find the right lens for you.

We offer fitting for spherical lenses, toric (astigmatism) lenses, multifocal lenses, cosmetic/prosthetic lenses, rigid gas permeable lenses, and scleral lenses.

In order to be eligible for a contact lens fitting, you must have had a comprehensive eye exam within the past year. It is important to remember that contact lenses are medical devices regulated by the FDA. It is critical that these lenses fit properly to avoid eye health complications.

Step One: Lens material fitting process

Once it has been determined how you would like to wear contact lenses, the appropriate lenses will be inserted onto your eyes by the doctor based on eye curvature, prescription, and eye health. Your visual acuity as well as the fit of the lenses will be assessed.

Step Two: Insertion, Removal, and Lens Handling Training Session

After the appropriate fit is determined, you will be given extensive training on how to manage your new lenses by a contact lens technician. You will be given instructions on insertion, removal and cleaning your lenses, and given a starter kit for lens disinfection. When you can successfully demonstrate insertion and removal techniques, you will be able to bring your new lenses home.

Step Three: Follow-Up Visits and Finalization of the Fit

Follow-up visits with the doctor are mandatory and are very important in the process of finalizing your prescription. It is important that your eye health be evaluated closely to ensure the fit is successful. During this time, any issues regarding the vision or comfort of the lenses are addressed and altered at no additional charge for a three-month period following the initial fitting. When you are completely satisfied and the doctor is completely satisfied, the prescription will be finalized, and you may purchase a year’s supply of lenses. Your contact lens prescription will be valid for one year. Annual contact lens evaluation is required yearly to renew your contact lens prescription and may be subject to additional fees not covered by insurance.

There are several levels of contact lens fittings based on the complexity of the lens design and visual requirements. In most cases, contact lenses are considered cosmetic and therefore medical insurance plans do not cover any portion of the fees towards contact lens services. Vision plans may only pay a portion of the fees associated with the fitting process. Some eye conditions, such as keratoconus, qualify for medically necessary contact lenses and may be covered by your insurance.

Always follow your doctor’s recommendations for wear time, replacement and cleaning to avoid possible complications.
