Contact Lenses

As a service to our patients, we offer complete contact lens fitting. After your doctor examines your eyes and determines that you are a good candidate for contact lenses, a separate appointment is made with a technician who will measure your eyes and discuss your options. We have specially trained technicians to fit bifocal contact lenses. Call for current pricing.

Contact Lenses: Good Choice for Kids?
Physically the eyes can tolerate contacts at a very young age. What parents need to ask is, "Is my child mature enough to wear contact lenses?" If you're considering contact lenses for your child take a look at how your child handles other responsibilities. If your child needs frequent reminders for everyday chores, he may not be ready for the responsibility of wearing and caring for contact lenses.

Children are usually great contact lens wearers if they accept the responsibility for them. They adapt well to wearing the lenses. Kids also develop fewer complications than adults. Younger people usually heal faster and have stronger immune systems.

Sports and contact lenses are a great combination for all athletes, including smaller athletes. Contact lenses may be a safer vision option than glasses for recreation use. Polycarbonate lenses are a must, but frames are more vulnerable to breakage. Many contact lenses, especially rigid gas permeable lenses, offer better optics than eyeglasses. This leads to clearer vision and better sports performance.

NOTE: Drs. Fine, Hoffman, and Sims strongly recommend that lenses be worn on a daily wear basis only. Of all contact lens wearers, patients who routinely sleep in contact lenses run the greatest risk of infection and other problems. For example, the risk for corneal ulcer is 4-5 times greater for patients who sleep in their lenses. Also, it is critical that your hands are free of tap water when handling soft lenses.

*It is our policy for your eye health not to renew contact lens prescriptions without annual eye exams.
