Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I Need to Get Fitted for Contact Lens?

Contact lenses are not one-size-fits-all. A contact lens fitting is necessary to make sure that the lenses fit both of your eyes properly and are comfortable enough for extended wear. Your eye doctor will have to measure your corneal curvature, the size of your pupils and iris, among other things. 

How Long Does it Take to Get Used to Contact Lenses? 

Most people find soft contact lenses to be comfortable and easy to wear right away. It may take a few weeks before you feel totally at ease putting them in and taking them out, but this amount of time varies depending on the person. Our staff are happy to show you the best techniques for inserting and removing lenses safely and easily. 

Can my Child Wear Contact Lenses?

That decision is ultimately up to the parents of the child that wants to wear contact lenses. Our eye doctors can work with you to determine if your child is ready for the responsibility of contact lenses in our office by answering any questions you may have. 

What are the Benefits of Daily Disposables?

Many eye doctors recommend their patients buy daily disposable lenses because there is less opportunity for protein and bacteria to build up. You will also save money by not having to purchase saline solution.
