Soft Contact Lens

We fit all brands of contact lenses including variety of colored contacts, single-visions, multi-focals, and Toric contact lenses. When it comes to correcting astigmatism, a Toric checks out best for you!

Toric Lenses
Your astigmatic eyes are a little out of shape.

So you have astigmatism. What does that mean? Actually, the explanation is simple. In normal eyes, the front of the eye (cornea) is perfectly round - like a basketball. In the astigmatic eye, the cornea is oval - like a football. This oval shape prevents light from correctly focusing on the retina. The result is a distortion of blurring of images. Therefore, you need a corrective lens that's designed specially to treat your astigmatism.

Glasses aren’t your only choice for correcting astigmatism.  Lasik Surgery as well as Toric soft contact lenses are a superior alternative because they feature a unique design that’s customized to your vision correction needs.  You’ll benefit from crystal clear vision along with all the advantages of lasik procedure or a soft contact lens.

Anti-Reflective (Non-Glare) Coating

We offer special anti-reflective coatings for spectacle lenses, much like those used for camera lenses. Vision is enhanced with A/R coated lenses, because conventional lens materials only transmit approximately 91% of light. With an A/R coated lens, 8% more light is transmitted and annoying reflections are eliminated. These coating are particularly effective for reducing eye fatigue for computer operators and anyone driving at night. And of course, A/R lenses enhance appearance by removing all distracting reflections. Special care and cleaning must be used with A/R coated lens.
