Contact lenses are a convenient alternative to glasses, offering visual clarity and ultimate comfort! We offer a special contact lens exam where we measure your eye's curvature to help us fit you with the most comfortable contact lenses for your eye shape and lifestyle needs.

If you have never used contact lenses before, we will gladly teach you how to use them and insert them into your eye. Once you've done it a few times, it will become second nature.
