Are your glasses weighing you down?
If you answered “Yes,” you may be a candidate for contact lenses
Contact lenses let you enjoy your peripheral vision
A contact lens is a thin transparent round plastic that sits on the cornea. It corrects refractive errors such as hyperopia, myopia, astigmatism and presbyopia, just like eyeglasses do. With these conditions, the eye does not focus light on the retina the way it should, thus causing blurry vision. Contact lenses are shaped based on the vision problem in order to help the eye focus light directly on the retina.
Contact lenses are more similar to natural sight than eyeglasses. Since the lenses stick to the tear layer of your eye they move with your eye to correct the refractive error and to allow for a more natural field of vision. They don’t block your line of sight or peripheral vision, like glasses can. Contact lenses can be worn all day.

Specially designed contact lenses
We choose your contact lens depending on your needs and preferences
This is the most popular type of lens. They are comfortable and are a good choice for people participating in sports or who lead active lifestyles.
Newer soft lens materials include silicone-hydrogels which allow more oxygen to the eye and are available for daily or extended (overnight) wear.
Rigid gas permeable contact lenses (RGPs or hard contacts) are more durable and resistant to deposit buildup, and generally give clearer, crisper vision for most vision problems.
We use them for patients with keratoconus, some types of astigmatism, and cornea problems. They last for a relatively long time and have a lower risk of eye infections than other lenses.
Cosmetic colored contact lenses are a great option for those wanting to try a different eye color.
Sometimes we prescribe them to enhance color perception for patients with color blindness.
