Whether you’re going out for a run, changing your style for dinner, or you’re just tired of cleaning your lenses, eyeglasses can be a bit of an obstacle in your daily life. While we love providing high-quality, stylish frames for every age, we also recognize that glasses may not be for everyone.

Our Contact Lens Exam & Fitting Process
While we would love to offer contact lenses to everyone, some might find them uncomfortable.
To ensure your contacts provide the clear vision you want with the comfort you deserve, we’ll walk you through our comprehensive contact lens process that includes an eye exam, a contact lens fitting, and a short trial period.
The Eye Exam
Once we determine if your eyes are healthy enough to comfortably wear contacts, the next step is fitting your contact lenses. This step involves measuring a few aspects of your eyes, including your pupil size, eye shape, and quality of your tear film.
Properly fitted contact lenses reduce the risk of discomfort and infection, helping you enjoy crisp, clear, comfortable vision.
The Trial Period
The trial period helps us ensure your eyes adapt properly to contact lens wear. We’ll likely send you home with a trial pair and book a follow-up appointment in about a week to monitor how you’re adjusting to your lenses.
It’s common to make some adjustments to your contacts during this period. If you notice irritation, redness, or discomfort while wearing your trial contacts, please remove them and contact us immediately.
Types of Contact Lenses
There are many types of contact lenses available, and the style you’ll need depends on what we discover during your eye exam and fitting. While it’s possible not to be a candidate for contact lenses, about 9 in 10 people who want to wear them can.
Some of the most common contact lens types include:
Rigid Gas-Permeable Contacts
Rigid gas-permeable lenses are made of plastic materials that allow oxygen to pass through and reach your eyes. These contacts are a great choice if you’re looking for durable, easy to use, and long-lasting lenses that provide clear, crisp vision.
Daily contacts need to be removed, cleaned, and stored at the end of every day, while extended-wear contacts can be worn overnight (if your doctor deems it safe to do so).
There are many types of specialty contact lenses that we can prescribe based on your needs. Whether you have an eye condition that needs managing or want to change your eye color for a fun night out, we can find a comfortable, safe-to-use pair of contacts right for you.
Some common specialty contacts include:
- Scleral lenses: Scleral lenses are larger than traditional contacts and rest on the whites of your eyes: We generally recommend these contacts if you have keratoconus.
- Hybrid lenses: Hybrid lenses combine the crisp vision of RGP lenses with a soft hydrogel skirt, making them more comfortable to wear without sacrificing your vision.
- Toric lenses: Toric lenses help correct astigmatism.
- Multifocal lenses: Multifocals are a common prescription if you’re looking to correct presbyopia.
- Colored lenses: Colored lenses can change your eye color, making them the perfect accessory for fun nights out.
Utilizing silicon hydrogel technology, Air Optix contact lenses are well known for comfort and oxygen permeability. They are available in a variety of prescriptions and varieties, including toric lenses.
