Contact Lenses

We’re the acknowledged contact lens experts!

Don’t be misled to believe that contact lenses can be purchased off the shelf like a pair of sunglasses! It takes a careful evaluation and fitting process to insure that you receive lenses that will keep your eyes healthy, see clearly, and feel comfortable. Symptoms that contact lens wearers experience can be alleviated by careful fitting and follow–up care. At ProEye your examination and all follow up visits will be conducted by your optometrist who has years of training and experience in contact lens fitting and problem solving to make certain that your result is the best possible...

Your initial contact lens examination will include

  • A consultation with the doctor
  • Measurement and evaluation of the eyes
  • Diagnostic fitting of lenses to make certain that you will be able to wear contact lenses successfully and to determine the type and design of lens that will work best for your eye.

Afterwards, you will be given the opportunity to follow up with the doctor at a later date so you may go home with your lenses for a test drive.

With modern technology, individuals with almost any kind of eyeglass prescription can see clearly and comfortably with contact lenses. Here’s why it makes sense to consider ProEye if you are thinking about contact lenses:

We use lenses from manufacturers including (just a small sampling):

  • Johnson & Johnson (Vistakon)--Acuvue, Acuvue Advance, Acuvue Oasys
  • Alcon/CibaVision--Air Optix, Air Optix for Astigmatism, Air Optix Aqua Multifocal, Air Optix Night & Day, Air Optix Aqua, Dailies Total 1
  • Bausch & Lomb--Pure Vision, Pure Vision Toric, Pure Vision Multifocal, Pure Vision 2, Soflens Daily
  • Cooper Vision--Biofinity, Biofinity Toric, Biofinity Multifocal, Biomedics, Biomedics Toric, Frequency 55

We also utilize specialty companies to fit the most difficult-to-fit wearers. If you have a need, we can fill it:

SoClear--Semi-Scleral lenses. Large gas-premeable lens (RGP) that fits onto the sclera of the eye. Is nearly as large as a soft lens. Combines the benefits of the soft lens with the hard since great vision is achieved with great comfort. These lenses are really good for all kinds of sports since they don't pop out like regular hard lenses do.
Synergeyes--Special rigid lenses surrounded by a soft outer skirt. Combines the benefits of a rigid lens with a soft lens, creating a lens that centers perfect, feels great, and gives fantastic vision. Great for people who have never been able to see well out of contact lenses or cannot tolerate a rigid lens. Can be used for keratoconus.
WAVE--Special 100% customized rigid lenses that are shaped to your exact corneal curvature. This creates a lens which is comfortable and gives great vision. Primarily used for people who have unusual or traumatized corneas. Great application for keratoconus, post-LASIK/PRK/RK, high prescriptions, high astigmatism, trauma, corneal transplants, etc.

Our office participates in many studies to investigate new lens types being introduced. This helps us stay on the cutting edge of new technology.

Contact Lens Specialty Lenses

We fit a wide range of contacts including lenses for those with unusual eyes.

We refer to these lenses as "specialty contact lenses" because they do not fit the general population. Most lenses are "hard" but not hard in the sense that they are uncomfortable like the old PMMA lenses from the 1970's. We have come a long ways from that era. We now fit rigid, air breathable materials (called GP for gas permeable). Some are so breathable you can wear them for 30 days.

Don't let that name "rigid" fool you. That just means they aren't floppy like today's disposable contacts. They can be just as comfortable if fitted correctly. The main advantages of any GP material are wearability (can last for years in some cases), healthy lens wear (GP wearers rarely if ever get infections), excellent vision (often greater than soft lenses and even glasses), and may alleviate dryness issues because of the increased tear exchange under the lens (soft lenses barely move at all).

Some of these rigid lenses are larger than the size of the iris itself. Some are even larger than traditional disposable contacts--going way out onto the white part of the eye. This can make them very comfortable to wear since the lens does not make contact with the sensitive cornea. This may allow us to vault over injuries, scars, post-LASIK problems, keratoconus, etc.

We also fit lenses for dry eyes. Most of the time we try to fit contacts to make the lenses themselves more comfortable but at times we fit contacts to make the eye more comfortable acting like a bandage!

Some lenses are flat on the back side kind of like a bottle cap. This is an ideal shape for corneas that have had radial keratotomy, LASIK, and PRK.

We also have hybrid contacts that combine rigid gas permeable materials with a soft skirt around the outside which makes them ultra comfortable. These lenses are great for those who suffer from dry eyes or can't wear traditional contacts. They can also incorporate multifocal abilities giving those over the age of 40 the ability to see distance and near at the same time!

While the following lenses are technically not specialty contacts since they are fit only for cosmetic purposes, they are fun to wear-- especially for Halloween!
