Contact Lenses 

Why choose contact lenses?

First, contact lenses provide excellent side, or peripheral, vision.  They don’t get fogged during the rainy weather.  Finally, contact lenses match everything you wear.

A contact lens evaluation includes special tests that are not performed during a comprehensive eye examination.  Contact lenses are medical devices, regulated by the FDA, which require a fitting and a prescription, including colored, non-prescription cosmetic styles.

A contact lens evaluation includes the following measurements will be taken to ensure proper fit and vision:

  • Cornea measurement
  • Tear film evaluation
  • Evaluation of the interface of the contact and your eye’s surface

Family Eye Care Solutions offers many types of contacts styles to suit your needs.  These include:

  1. Soft contact lenses (made of soft, flexible plastic that allow oxygen to filter to your eyes)
    • Daily Disposable
    • Planned Replacement
    • Extended Wear or Overnight
    • Toric (astigmatism)
    • Multifocal
    • Monovision
    • Colored
  2. Gas Permeable (GP) lenses (made of firm, oxygen-permeable plastic that retains its shape and allows for crisp vision)
  3. Scleral lenses (larger GP lenses recommended for irregular corneas due to keratoconus or previous surgery)
