Rigid (hard) Gas-Permeable Contact Lenses
Our optometrists are well equipped with the products and experience necessary to fit these challenging lenses, known as RGP or hard lenses. Today there are more options than ever before and the comfort of a RGP lens has never been better. RGP lenses are utilized to help patients with such issues as irregular corneas, irregular ocular surfaces, ocular disease, and other issues that cannot be corrected with soft contact lenses or glasses. Our optometrists regularly work with corneal surgeons, and have gained valuable experience with post-surgical contact lens fittings and prescribing lenses targeting ocular disease. We have access to all manufacturers and choose the lens we feel is best suited to fit each patient’s individual needs.
Colored eye contacts are designed to change the color or appearance of your eyes. These contacts can be available with vision correction or strictly to alter appearance (referred to as plano or non prescription colored contacts). Wearers of these contact lenses can temporarily change the color of their eyes and can even create different themes popular during Halloween (such as Dracula or zombie) by modifying the eye’s appearance. Whether you’re looking for prescription colored contacts for vision correction or non prescription colored contacts for cosmetics, a contact lens fitting is required to determine the proper size and fit. It is important to not just order lenses online as eye injury and infection can occur. You must have a valid prescription to order any colored contacts.
