We carry many lenses in stock that will be available to you immediately.

We use contacts that will give you the best possible vision and wear schedule to fit your lifestyle.
Soft Contact Lenses
Soft contact lenses are now available that correct for astigmatism (irregularly shaped eye), presbyopia (condition where near vision is difficult) and lenses that correct for both of these conditions at the same time. Toric contact lenses correct for astigmatism and are available in many different brands. Multifocal contact lenses correct for presbyopia and are also available in many different brands. Extended wear contact lenses (lenses you sleep in) are available and are a great option for many patients. Rigid gas permeable contact lenses are also available and are a great option for patients who need special correction, or for patients who have certain eye conditions, like keratoconus.
Colored Contact Lenses
Colored contact lenses are available and will allow you to have fun and change the apparent color of your eyes. A comprehensive eye examination is required to properly fit the lenses on your eyes. Once a prescription is determined, you can try on different colors to see which one looks best for you.
