Most people with vision conditions have no problem wearing contact lenses. With new lens materials, replacement schedules, and lens care technology, wearing contact lenses has never been easier.
However, you may have difficulty wearing lenses if:
- Your eyes are irritated by allergies
- your work environment hosts large quantities of dust or chemicals
- you suffer from uncontrollable diabetes, severe arthritis, or an overactive thyroid
- you have overly dry eyes to medications or pregnancy

Fitting and Evaluation: If you come to us for an eye exam and are a previous patient who is happy with your contact lenses, a contact lens evaluation is all that is needed with your full eye exam to allow you to continue to use contact lenses. We will check the fit and prescription along with the health of your eyes before ordering your lenses.
If you come to us as a new patient or as an existing patient, needing more than a simple prescription change in your contact lenses, a new fit or refit may be needed.
If you are a new contact lens wearer, new or established patient, you will have a full fit. The prices range from $27.00 and up (plus eye examination fee) depending on the complexity of the fit. The fitting, in addition to your examination, will include a 30-day follow-up to ensure that the prescription and fit of your prescription is correct, proper training of how to insert, remove, and care for your contact lenses. It is certainly important to evaluate costs when considering contacts, but don’t base your decision on cost alone. All types of lenses are not the same. It is most important for you to get the lenses that are healthiest for you and the professional services and follow-up care to insure your success as a contact lens wearer.
