Contact Lens Fitting and Evaluation

Village Eyecare optometrists prescribe contact lenses to correct myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia (difficulty focusing at near).

Our experienced eye doctors provide patients with the best fitting contact lens based on the physiology of their eye, visual demands, and lifestyle. Prior to fitting a contact lens, a scan of the cornea (topography) and an analysis of the moisture levels of the eye will be performed. Each patient is provided with a customized contact lens that optimizes vision and is comfortable for maximum eye health.

In addition, Village Eyecare optometrists provide fittings and care for specialty custom contact lenses:

  • Custom contact lenses for corneal diseases and complex conditions, such as Keratoconus, Corneal Ectasia, Post-Surgical, and Traumatic Injury
  • Specialty Contact Lenses, including astigmatism, daily disposable, multifocal, and cosmetic color lenses. Multiple lens materials such as soft hydrogelt lenses, gas permeable lenses, sclera and cornea-scleral lenses, and hybrid lenses (gas-permeable center with soft lens skirt)
  • Training in proper Lens Insertion, Lens Removal, and Lens Care

What should I bring to the appointment?

If new to Village Eyecare, please bring a copy of your last contact lens prescription or your current boxes of contact lenses. In addition, bring your current glasses as a new eyeglass prescription will be determined during the comprehensive exam.
