Glasses & Contact Lenses

Our office offers a boutique collection of quality eyewear which includes glasses, sunglasses, and eyewear for kids. Glasses say a lot about your personality and personal style, and we are happy to work with you in selecting frames that best complement your face! When helping you choose a frame we keep in mind your budget, lifestyle, personal style, and vision needs.

Our office can also order any commercially available contact lens for you! The majority of our patients prefer to order their contact lenses through our office because of the reliability, competitive pricing, and manufacturer rebates.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is myopia?

This is an eye condition in which you see objects clearly up close and blurred in the distance.

What is hyperopia?

In this vision condition, distant objects are clear, but near objects may be blurred.

What is presbyopia?

This is an age related vision problem where focusing on objects at near gradually becomes difficult.

What is astigmatism?

This is a vision condition that causes blurred vision due to the irregular shape of the cornea (front part of the eye), or the lens inside the eye.

Do I need blue light coating on my lenses?

Blue light is a short wavelength high energy visible light that we are exposed to everyday on our digital devices.

Studies now show that this light may be contributing to a change in our circadian rhythm, and in turn a decrease in sleep time and quality. This blue light may also be contributing to retinal injury, dry eyes, blurred vision, and headaches. This is why, along with decreased screen time, we always recommend lenses with a blue light filter, especially in children and adolescents.

Why do I need a contact lens exam?

Contact lenses are a great alternative to glasses for the right patients. It’s important that contact lenses fit properly and comfortably on your eyes. Before a contact lens exam, your doctor will perform a comprehensive eye exam to determine your refractive and eye health state. Next you will have a contact lens consultation in which the doctor will discuss with you the right lens for your lifestyle and eye and vision diagnoses, such as which lens would be best if you have dry eyes, astigmatism, or only want contact lenses for the weekends versus full time wear, etc.

If you are currently a contact lens wearer the doctor may discuss new innovations and new contact lenses that may have become available. You will try different trial lenses on in the office, and the doctor will evaluate proper fit, vision, and comfort. You will be informed of proper contact lens hygiene. For returning patients, this may be a quick visit if no changes are necessary. For new patients, or new contact lens wearers, we would also have to ensure proper hygiene and training of contact lens insertion and removal before you are able to take more trials home with you to try out in the real world. You would trial these lenses for about a week before returning for a follow up visit. At your follow up we will ensure that your eyes are healthy and you are happy with these contact lenses before finalizing this prescription.
