Contact lenses are the most popular vision correction option next to eye glasses. The key attribute of a good contact lens – besides a proper prescription – is comfort.
Patients who have never worn contacts are required to be scheduled in for a training and fitting session. One of our contact lens technicians will spend time educating you on how to properly insert, remove, and care for your contact lenses.
After undergoing a comprehensive contact lens exam and fitting with us at Vivid Eye Care, we can allay any fears about the comfort, ease-of-use and health concerns associated with contact lenses. Contact lenses can correct all sorts of vision problems such as those caused by farsightedness, nearsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia.
Please keep in mind that contact lenses may not be suitable for everyone. Certain eye health issues may prevent candidacy for contact lense usage. The eye exam will determine if all requirements are met for candidacy.
After booking your appointment with us, one of our associates will ask that you bring certain items with you if this is your first appointment. There will also be some registration information to fill out when you arrive, before your appointment begins.

After your preliminary assessments have been completed, you will meet with with of our optometrists who will discuss the findings with you, answer any questions you may have and perform further tests if necessary.
