Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are thin plastic lenses that fit over the clear front part of your eye, known as the cornea. For folks with vision problems, contact lenses offer one of the best tools available to see better. They can correct a host of eye problems including near- and farsightedness as well as astigmatism. Almost invisible to others, they enable you to conduct your daily affairs without traditional eyeglasses.

Contact lenses are made by mixing a special type of plastic with water. The water makes the contact softer and enables oxygen to pass from the ambient air back and forth to the eye.

There is a wide variety of types, colors styles, and sizes of contacts to choose from.
