Contact Lens Department
Contact lenses are a great alternative to prescription glasses. Contact lenses cannot be purchased by law without a valid prescription, therefore all first time wearers will be required to go through a contact lens fitting in addition to a comprehensive eye exam.
Two types of fittings we offer:
- New Fitting: For patients who have never worn contact lenses.
- Re-Fitting: For patients who need to make changes to their current contact lenses.
The cost for a fitting includes trial lenses, solution kits, insertion and removal training, proper care of the contact lenses, and follow up appointments. These costs are typically not covered by insurance plans.

Do’s and Don’ts
Following these contact lens do’s and don’ts can lead you to success.
- Always wash and thoroughly dry your hands before handling contact lenses.
- Carefully and regularly clean contact lenses as directed by your Dr. If recommended, rub the contact lenses with your fingers and rinse them thoroughly before soaking the lenses overnight in multipurpose solution that completely covers each lens.
- Store lenses in the proper lens storage case, and replace the case at least every three months. Clean the case after each use, and keep it open and dry between cleanings.
- Use only fresh solution to clean and store contact lenses. Never reuse old solution. Change your contact lens solution according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, even if you don’t use your lenses daily.
- Always follow the recommended contact lens replacement schedule prescribed by your Dr
- Remove contact lenses before swimming or entering a hot tub.
- Avoid tap water to wash or store contact lenses or lens cases.
- See your Dr for your regularly scheduled contact lens and eye examination.
- Use cream soaps. They can leave a film on your hands that can transfer to the lenses.
- Use homemade saline solutions. Improper use of homemade saline solutions has been linked with a potentially blinding condition among soft lens wearers.
- Put contact lenses in your mouth or moisten them with saliva, which is full of bacteria and a potential source of infection.
- Use tap water to wash or store contact lenses or lens cases.
- Share lenses with others.
- Use products not recommended by your Dr to clean and disinfect your lenses. Saline solution and rewetting drops are not designed to disinfect lenses.
- Sleep in contact lenses
