Our office has long been considered to be the leader in contact lens knowledge. With that reputation comes the expectation that we will do our very best to fit our patients with the most up to date technologies in lens designs. In order to accomplish this we must have access to virtually every lens manufacturer’s products. We also have to make it convenient for our patients to receive their contact lenses. We have an exceptionally large array of lenses in our stock. We inventory all of the major contact lens brands. These are from Johnson & Johnson/Vistakon, Cooper Vision, Ciba Vision, Centennial, and Bausch & Lomb. Most of the time we make it convenient so that patients can leave their appointments with their next year supply of lenses.
Contact Lens Fittings and Evaluations
Care is always taken to make the best contact lens choices for our patients. An external ocular evaluation and tear analysis is used to guide us to the most comfortable and healthy contact lens choice for each patient. We will take as much time as needed to ensure the long term health and safety at each contact lens fitting.
Our doctors fit gas permeable and soft contact lens designs from all the lens manufacturers. We utilize some obscure brands of lenses for those difficult to fit patients as well.
Contact Lens Teaching
Our technicians spend as much time as necessary to make sure that our patients are comfortable inserting, removing and handling lenses. This is a skill that we don’t take lightly. Safety is our number one concern and patients are expertly trained before they leave our office with contact lenses. Some patients will require more than one teaching session and there is no limit for those who have difficulties with lenses in the beginning. We carefully follow up with these patients to make sure that they are progressing properly with their contact lenses.
