The contact lens department at Physicians Eye Care Center is ready to meet all of your contact lens needs. Our staff includes professionals with decades of experience who can fit everyone from new wearers to experienced ones who might like to try something new or continue with their current lenses. We can order the lenses for you and handle your insurance coverage, or give you a contact lens prescription (as long as you have been adequately evaluated) so that you may order them yourself.
The developments in contact lenses continuously change and we offer the newest lenses and can advise you as to whether you may benefit from these new changes. When you come in for evaluation, please bring your current contact lenses, the packages they come in, or any previous contact lens prescriptions if you have them.
In general contact lens wear is not recommended before age 12 but there is no upper age limit. Children age 12 and above need to have a certain level of maturity to comply with adequate care of the lenses and to understand the potential problems if they do not care for them properly. The doctors, contact lens staff, and technical staff are happy to discuss these issues with patients and their parents.
We offer a wide variety of contact lens types, including:
Many vision insurance plans will contribute towards contact lens fittings and/or the lenses. Please check with your plan to find out this information so that you are aware prior to the visit whether there will be a charge. Remember to tell the office personnel when you schedule your appointment that you need contact lens services. And again, remember to bring your lenses, their packaging, and any past written prescriptions with you to your visit. It is also very helpful to bring your eyeglasses, even if you rarely wear them.
