Contact Lenses

The eye is a very delicate organ; that's why it is important to search for an eye care professional that is an expert at lens prescriptions and fittings.

Since the refractive error and shape of the eye can change, it is crucial to have an annual eye health examination.

 

Dr. Aaker has earned a reputation as a leader in contact lens fittings and specializes in hard-to-fit contact lenses. Our office has a variety of different contact lenses to fit all of our patients' requirements. There are multifocal contact lenses, Toric lenses for astigmatism, Spherical contact lenses, gas permeable contact lenses, and cosmetic color contact lenses.

 

The building block for his successful practice is the continual integration of technology and all its wonders. Dr. Aaker's dedication to technology has enabled him to provide one of the most thorough eye health examinations in the city.

 

Daily Contact Lenses are here!!

 

Bathe your eyes in moisture with new lenses every day. Daily disposable contact lenses have a slow-release moisture formula that works with your natural tears to create a cushion of moisture around the lens that delivers comfort that lasts throughout the day. With its thin lens design, it provides a remarkably natural feel on the eye, as well as high definition optics that help you see exceptional detail any time of the day. Daily lenses reduce the appearance of blurriness, halos, and glare, offering crisp, clear vision, even in low light situations.

 

Enjoy the ultimate lens wearing experience with daily disposable contact lenses. You get a fresh, new lens every day and there is no daily cleaning or care needed, so you have all day comfort and exceptional vision.

Soft Contact Lenses:

Soft contact lenses are the most commonly prescribed due to the fact that they are extremely comfortable. Soft contacts are now available for patients with astigmatism and dry eyes and can now even change the color of your eyes. Soft contact lenses include:

 

  • Daily Wear: These can be worn up to 12 hours but must be removed and cleaned at night
  • Extended Wear: These can be worn on a more flexible schedule than daily wear
  • Disposable: These are meant to be worn for a short time and then discarded
  • Color-Changing: These can change the color of your eyes even if vision correction is not needed

 

Hard Contact Lenses:

Also called rigid or gas-permeable lenses, hard contact lenses offer sharper vision and can correct nearsightedness or astigmatism.

 

Contact Lens Exam:

Thanks to the advances in optical technology, almost everyone is a candidate for contact lens use. This includes patients with astigmatism and also those who prefer bifocal or multifocal lenses. At The Eyeglass Shop, we offer all types and brands of contact lenses specifically fitted for each individual's needs. It is very important that your lenses are fitted correctly based on your prescription, eye shape and specific needs.
