contact lensOur professionals can help fit you into a pair of contact lenses that is just right for you. We are experts in fitting contact lenses and can handle the most specialized needs. Whether rigid, soft, toric or multifocal, we are experienced in handling the most difficult of prescriptions.

If you have allergies or dry eyes, then you know these conditions can be particularly annoying to contact lens wearers. In the past many people had to quit wearing their lenses because of these conditions.

However, new lens materials and allergy medications have made it possible for these patients to eliminate the burning itchy eyes associated with allergies and dry eyes.

The latest advancement in contact lens technology is the use of Silicone Hydrogel material. The silicone based material allows for more oxygen permeability to the eye for better corneal health and increased wettability for better comfort.

Many of the newer lenses also use wetting agents to increase moisture retention of the contacts. Be sure to ask your doctor which lenses are best for you.

We often participate in Clinical Studies for new contact lens products. If you are a contact lens wearer and would like to participate in a study, please call Sheba, our contact lens
technician.

If you ever fit the criteria for a study, we will notify you. Patients are often times reimbursed for participating.

  • We carry all of the top contact lens brands!
  • A routine exam won’t provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear, and to generate your contact lens Rx.
  • If you need correction for presbyopia but dislike the idea of bifocal eyeglasses, you have many contact lens options.
  • These rigid lenses aren’t as popular or well-known as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision and high oxygen permeability.
  • Challenges such as astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes needn’t be a barrier to contact lens wear, but they do require more time and patience.
  • “I can’t wear soft contacts; I have astigmatism.” This once-true statement is now simply a myth.
