Glasses-Free Vision Correction
Glasses are a popular and reliable way to correct vision, but many people prefer wearing contact lenses. These devices can help you see clearly without frames that may get lost, become damaged, or not match your style.

The Contact Lens Exam
Contact lens exams are similar to regular eye exams, but they usually include a few more steps. We take these steps so we can find effective and comfortable contact lenses for your eyes.
We perform contact lens exams to answer the following questions:
- How often should you change your lenses? Contact lenses may come in daily disposable or extended wear varieties.
- What type of contact lens will correct your vision most effectively?
- Do you have conditions like dry eyes or astigmatism that could make some lenses more practical than others?
- Do you need specialty lenses for specific vision problems, such as presbyopia?
Contact lens exams also include several measurements, such as:
Your Fitting & Trial Period
When we complete your tests and measurements, we’ll provide you with a set of trial lenses. If these lenses prove comfortable and effective, we’ll help you order a lasting supply and teach you to maintain them properly. You will also most likely need to book several follow-up appointments with us so we can monitor your eyes as they adjust to wearing your new lenses.
Contact Lens Types
Contact lenses come in several different forms, including:
Soft Contact Lenses
Rigid Gas-Permeable Lenses
Rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses are typically more durable than soft contacts, but some people may find getting used to them challenging. These lenses are made from firm silicone compounds that retain their shape during use, making them helpful for people with corneal irregularities, like astigmatism.
Specialty Contact Lenses
Some contact lenses have unique properties. These lenses include:
- Aspheric lenses have flatter and thinner surfaces and are often suggested for people with low astigmatism.
All Clariti 1-Day lenses feature high water content — a key feature for comfort. AquaGen™ technology makes it possible. The AquaGen™ process creates a lens that naturally attracts and binds water molecules to the lens surface, so your eyes can stay moist and comfortable throughout your day.
Proclear by CooperVision are a line of daily-disposable contact lenses with options available for nearly every corrective lens prescription need, including options for astigmatism. They feature Phosphorylcholine, a material that attracts water and encourages healthy eye hydration.
