The Eye Doctors Contact Lenses
For contact lens patients, the comfort and clarity of their contact lenses is what separates a good eye doctor from a great eye doctor. Our eye doctors are simply the best at fitting contact lenses. We have patients that travel great distances, some from out of state, to have their contact lens examinations performed at our office. Since we have special partnerships with contact lens manufacturers, we have access to every kind of lens for every kind of patient. We will find the contact lens that is right for you.
Our V-EYE-P Exam
A proper contact lens fitting always begins with a proper examination. The corneal topography that is part of every V-EYE-P exam we perform gives our optometrists a map of the front of your eye. This is measured in greater detail than the actual specifications of the contact lenses themselves. We guarantee that the lenses prescribed will be nothing short of perfect for each and every eyeball that they sit on.
Soft Contact Lenses
Soft lenses are the most popular type of lenses that are fit by eye doctors. They are relatively cheap and easy to use. The Eye Doctors offer a variety of disposable lenses, from dailies to monthlies. Most patients at our office will receive sample contacts in their brand and power to wear at the time of their exam. Our office also features competitive pricing on soft lenses, industry exclusive rebates, and free shipping to your home.
Another thing patients love about our contact lenses is the ability to exchange unused lenses each year and upgrade them to their new prescription! You don’t have to throw out old contacts or wear last year’s prescription because you had a surplus of them in the bathroom closet. We ensure you have up to date contacts when you need them.
Hard to Fit Contact Lenses
Our eye doctors also have special expertise in hard to fit soft lenses designed for patients with high degrees of astigmatism or presbyopia (bifocal). If you have ever been told by an optometrist that you aren’t a candidate for contact lenses, we want you to have an exam with our eye doctors. In most cases, it is a lack of training or access to high tech contacts that stops many optometrists from helping the “hard to fit” patient. (Dare we say that they maybe don’t want to put in the effort too?)
Contact Lenses for Keratoconus
The Eye Doctors also fit contact lenses for patients with keratoconus. This degenerative condition is rare and sight threatening. It is where the tissue of the eye becomes dangerously thin over time and begins to bulge outward. This creates terrible vision for the people that suffer from it. Patients with this condition are rarely able to get good vision, even with eyeglasses.
Our eye doctors fit these patients with custom made lenses called scleral contact lenses. These lenses provide perfect vision for the patients and retain the shape of the eye to prevent it from progressively bulging outward. It is a two-fold treatment, providing sight and preserving the structure of the eye.
Ortho-K Contact Lenses
The team at The Eye Doctors also prides itself on having successfully fit over 500 children with Ortho-K contact lenses. Sometimes called Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT), these lenses reshape and mold the eye when worn overnight. During the day, the child retains perfect vision without the use of glasses or contacts. This is a very liberating solution for many parents. You no longer have to deal with the hassle of glasses or the risk of your child going off to school with a soft lens in their eye that might fall out or get contaminated with germs. CRTs also have the amazing benefit of slowing the progression of nearsightedness in children. Ortho-K lenses are safe, FDA approved, and have literally changed the lives of every patient that wears them.

- We carry all of the top contact lens brands!
- Disposable contact lenses are extremely popular these days. As an alternative to hard lenses of the past and rigid gas permeable lenses of today, they are generally considered to be far superior in comfort and wearability. They come in many different varieties, and it is important to know which is best for you.
- A routine exam won’t provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear, and to generate your contact lens Rx.
- Fortunately for those who don’t like the look, feel or inconvenience of reading glasses, there is another option. Bifocal and multifocal lenses are also available in contact lenses in both soft and Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) varieties.
- These rigid lenses aren’t as popular or well-known as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision and high oxygen permeability.
- Challenges such as astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes needn’t be a barrier to contact lens wear, but they do require more time and patience.
- “I can’t wear soft contacts; I have astigmatism.” This once-true statement is now simply a myth.
- Although your astigmatism may prevent you from wearing ordinary contact lenses, today there are numerous lens and treatment options available to you, such as scleral or hybrid lenses.
