Contact lenses come in many forms: disposable, hard lenses, gas permeables, bifocal and tinted. Whether you are a first time user or have been wearing contacts for years, our trained professionals are able to fit you with the proper contact lenses.

After you have been examined it may be necessary to provide complimentary lenses you can try at home on a trial basis to see if you like them. Once we have obtained the proper fit and you are happy with your lenses, we can order the lenses you have chosen. When you need another set of contacts you can call or email us at and we will mail them to you at a nominal charge.
