Choosing contact lenses today can be a bit overwhelming. The "supermarket" array of specialty contacts -- ranging from monovision lenses to multifocal lenses to those that can correct astigmatism -- makes them more appealing than ever before for anyone with vision problems.
Daily wear contacts as well as extended wear varieties are available to suit many lifestyle needs; tinted lenses enhance natural eye color or change it completely for dramatic effect. Therapeutic contacts worn while you sleep can help change the shape of the cornea; correcting vision for limited periods of time when wearing glasses is unpleasant or impossible.
Our professional eye doctors will see to it that your vision problems are addressed in the best way possible, whatever your specific needs may be. We will also assure that you are happy with the esthetic and lifestyle benefits of any corrective lenses that you choose, whether you opt to wear contacts all the time, or combine special use contacts with prescription eyeglasses for other occasions. We have come a long way from the days when wearing eyeglasses was the only option. Continuing advances in comprehensive eye treatment and vision care make it possible to approach even serious eye problems with innovative solutions.
Our specialists treat all common eye conditions, monitor the changes in your vision and use state-of-the-art technology to formulate the type of therapy that will be effective and economical. We believe there is no sense more worthy of preservation that the sense of sight, and we want to help you see the world clearly and well from childhood through your senior years.
Among our most popular services, however, are contact lens examinations, prescriptions and the fitting of appropriate lenses. If you are considering contact lenses for the first time, do not hesitate to ask questions when you come for an initial exam. We will assess your needs, perform all necessary tests and help you determine the solution that best meets your particular needs. It is rare today, with the variety of contacts available, that we cannot achieve perfect results. It is important for your visual health to remember that contact lenses are medical devices that must be measured and fitted properly. You may have to undergo a period of adjustment when transitioning from prescription eyeglasses to contact lenses, but our caring physicians will guide you along the path.
Our staff of physicians, optometric specialists and vision therapists is well-equipped to treat minor eye injuries and infections; we also deal with cataracts, progressive eye disease or conditions brought on by other medical conditions. We recommend regular screenings throughout life as the best way to care for those "windows on your world." We want to help you maintain the health of your eyes which, in turn, contributes to overall well-being.
