While contact lenses can improve your vision as well as your appearance, they are medical devices and require expert fitting and careful instruction, as well as conscientious after care. Before you are fitted for contact lenses, you have a complete eye examination to be sure your eyes are healthy and to rule out any conditions that may prevent you from getting contact lenses. Once contact lenses have been prescribed, our clinic experts work with you to find the best contact lens for you from the variety of types, styles, materials, sizes, and colors available.
Contacts can also be described by replacement interval — that is, how often you discard the lenses and replace them with a fresh pair. Daily disposable contact lenses are discarded nightly and therefore require no care, cleaning or lens case. Other common replacement intervals are weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or quarterly; any of those lenses can be called “disposable.” Traditional, non-disposable lenses are usually replaced once a year, but these lenses are generally limited to unusual or difficult-to-manufacture prescriptions.
