Finding Your Perfect Contact Lens at My Optical
Why Do You Need a Contact Lens Exam?
Well fitting contact lenses can transform your life. They provide a wider field of vision and are virtually invisible, so you can enjoy the confidence of looking and feeling your best without anyone knowing you’re wearing them.
A contact lens exam is essential because it allows the eye doctor to evaluate your eyes and determine the best contact lenses for your vision needs. They’ll also be able to check for any underlying eye conditions that could affect your contact lens wear.
Fitting lenses to your lifestyle
Finding the right contact lenses for your lifestyle is beneficial to your overall satisfaction and eye health.
Our optometrists will take the time to understand your unique vision needs and preferences to ensure that we recommend the perfect lenses for you.
Whether you lead an active lifestyle or work in front of a computer all day, we have a wide selection of contact lenses that will provide you with clear, comfortable vision.
Follow Up Fittings
To ensure continued comfort and effectiveness of your contact lenses, we offer follow-up fittings. After your initial fitting, we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to assess how well your contacts work.
This includes checking the visual clarity they provide, if they fit comfortably, and addressing any concerns or issues you may have.
Daily Disposable Contact Lenses
These types of lenses are designed to be worn for one day and then thrown away, which makes them a convenient and hygienic option for many people — especially those with busy lifestyles.
Daily disposable lenses eliminate the need for cleaning and proper storage, which reduces the risk of eye infections and complications.
This means you can enjoy fresh, comfortable lenses every day.
Bi-Weekly and Monthly Contact Lenses
Bi-weekly and monthly contact lenses are recommended for people who prefer wearing their contacts for longer periods.
They’re made with durable materials and provide clear, comfortable vision for up to two weeks or one month before they’re discarded. This makes bi-weekly and month contact lenses an affordable option.
Wearers can also choose extended wear options which allow them to wear contacts for 7 to 30 days straight without removing them at night.
Contact Lenses for "Hard-to-Fit" Eyes
Some patients have "hard-to-fit" eyes, which make it challenging to find the right contact lenses.
However, even patients who are hard-to-fit can still wear contact lenses. Our optometrists are able to fit them with specialty lenses that are created for patients with unique vision needs, such as:
- Corneal scarring
- Dry eye
- Post-LASIK or other refractive surgery
- Presbyopia (age-related farsightedness)
- Pellucid Marginal Degeneration
Our specialty contact lenses include toric lenses, gas permeable lenses, and scleral lenses.
Costume Contact Lenses
If you’re looking to change your look or add an extra element of fun to your Halloween outfit, costume party look or cosplay, then you’ll enjoy our costume contact lenses.
We offer them in a variety of exciting colors and designs. And unlike generic no-name brands, our lenses are made by reputable manufacturers that prioritize quality and safety.
Bifocal and Multifocal Contact Lenses
People who need vision correction for multiple distances often struggle with having to switch between two pairs of glasses depending on the activity they’re doing.
Bifocal and multifocal contact lenses are designed to correct vision at different distances, removing the need for multiple pairs of glasses.
This is ideal for people with presbyopia, or age-related farsightedness, who need vision correction for both near and distance vision.
They are also a great option for those who work in front of a computer for long periods of time, because they offer clear vision for both close-up and distance work.
