Eyeglasses & Contacts

Making a decision about your eyewear goes beyond good vision and makes a statement about who you are. Your decision affects how you see and also how you want to be seen by others. But with so many different styles to choose from, getting the right look for your face and your lifestyle can be overwhelming.

Our staff will help you find the best fit for your specific needs and explain how different lenses and frames will impact your vision. They will help you narrow down your choices so you can find the look, fit and functionality you want from your eyewear.

We offer a large selection of eyeglasses, contact lenses and designer frames and sunglasses. We carry the latest European and American designer eyewear collections in a variety of styles, colors and materials including titanium, stainless steel and plastic.

New clients and all our current patients are welcome to visit us with their current prescription – no appointment necessary.

Contact Lens Care Services Include:

  1. Full Eye Health Analysis
    We start with a thorough eye health exam to determine if the eye is ready for contact lenses. This includes checking the back of the eye retina, the visual acuity, the tear flow and of course the cornea (front surface of the eye) where the contact lens will rest.
  2. Professional Consultation
    Your eye doctor will then discuss the eye exam analysis and any vision disorders such as far sightedness, astigmatism or presbyopia. They will discuss case history, previous contact lens wearing experience, previous and current contact lens materials and types as well as new options available to offer extended wear, enhanced comfort, ultra violet protection, crisper, sharper vision and daily convenience. The eye doctor will recommend the contact lens best suited to your lifestyle, your visual needs and your eye health requirements.
  3. Professional Fitting
    Our doctors and trained Optometric personnel will proceed to determine the exact size and style of contact lens that is right for your eyes by doing specific measurements of the front surface of the eye. These measurements done with the newest of technology and accuracy will then determine the base curve or back curve of the contact lens that will ensure a comfortable fit. Contact lenses that are not fitted properly can cause a multitude of problems including irritation, sore, itchy eyes, eye fatigue, redness, loss of oxygen to the eye causing dryness and reduced wearing times as well as corneal edema or swelling of the cornea.
  4. Complete Training
    Once selection of the type and modality of contact lens is made then our certified Optometric Assistants will provide a complete training overview on the ‘‘EASY’’ insertion and removal of contact lens, the best way to clean and store lenses, the wearing and replacement schedule as well as information about follow up appointments, warranties and exchanges which are also included in the price.
