Contact Lenses

Regardless of the type of contact lenses you wear, an annual eye exam is recommended to ensure the continued good health of your eyes. Schedule an appointment for an assessment and advice at Pediatric and Adult Vision Care, and we will be in touch with you shortly.

“I am so thankful to have found Pediatric & Adult Vision Care! The doctor alleviated all of my worries about my poor vision by knowing what could be improved and finding contacts to solve the problem….overall, my experience was the best it has ever been at an eye doctor and I am so thankful!”
-Anna K.

We offer many Contact Lens options

There are a number of reasons why you might prefer contact lenses to standard eyewear: a glasses-free look, hassle-free vision correction, wearing non-prescription sunwear and goggles, or the convenience of not having to worry about misplacing your glasses. If you have a high prescription or astigmatism, contact lenses may provide more enhanced vision correction than glasses. Today, you can even replace your bifocal glasses with bifocal contact lenses.

Your eye care provider can recommend the best contact lenses for you based on a complete eye examination and a review of your visual needs both at work and play. Since most people can wear more than one type of lens, it’s important to know what the choices are and the advantages and disadvantages to each.

Soft Lenses

These lenses are comfortable to wear and must be replaced monthly, weekly or daily depending on the type you choose. Soft lenses are often recommended for sports because they fit closer to the eye and are more difficult to dislodge. They can provide correction for most prescriptions including astigmatism. Today, with the introduction of newer materials like silicone hydrogels, which allow more oxygen to the eye, patients find it easier than ever to wear soft lenses comfortably.

Ortho-K / Corneal Reshaping (CRT) Lenses

This lens modality gives you freedom from daytime contact lenses and glasses. They correct nearsightedness (myopia) and may help slow down its progression. Ortho-K lenses offer a safe, non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that temporarily corrects nearsightedness. Read more here.

Gas-Permeable (GP) Lenses

Made of moderately flexible plastics, GP lenses offer sharp vision and correct most vision problems. They are more durable than soft contact lenses and can be easier to handle and care for but require a longer adaptation period and consistent wear to maintain adaptation.

Scleral Contact Lenses

If you want to wear contact lenses but have had trouble wearing them in the past — or you've been told you are not a good candidate for contacts — scleral contact lenses may be the solution you are looking for. These large-diameter gas permeable (GP) lenses offer the same advantages that conventional GP lenses have compared with soft contacts, including: Sharp Vision, easy handling, great durability and less risk for complications.

Multifocal Contact Lenses

In both soft and GP designs, multifocal lenses offer patients both distance and near vision correction just like a pair of bifocal glasses.

Silicone Hydrogels

Silicone hyrdogels are soft contact lenses that have high oxygen permeability and are comparable to HP lenses.
