Our Contact Lenses

contacts-300x225

Over the past few years, significant advancements have been made in contact lens materials and designs, making it easier than ever to wear contact lenses.  Our doctors are committed to providing the most advanced contact lens technology available and serve as clinical investigators for major contact lens manufacturers as they seek FDA approval for new lenses.  This gives us unique experience in fitting the newest contact lenses.

We maintain a large in-office trial lens inventory of re-usable and disposable daily and extended wear soft lenses, gas permeable rigid lenses, bifocal and post-cataract lenses, and therapeutic contact lenses for corneal disease or trauma.

Since we take contact lens wear seriously, we screen potential contact lens patients carefully before fitting. Not every patient who has the desire for contact lenses is a good, safe candidate for contact lens wear.  We stress frequent follow-up care for our contact lens patients. Contact lens wear, especially extended wear, without proper instruction, supervision and follow-up care by a doctor can be sight-threatening. We are not only concerned with safe and comfortable contact lens wear for the present, we want to provide continued lens wear well into the future.

As contact lens specialists, the doctors at Tallahassee Eye Center fit contact lenses of all types, including tinted lenses, disposable daily wear lenses, lenses for astigmatism, and bifocal. We also offer Vision Shaping Treatment (ortho-keratology) for the reduction or elimination of near-sightedness while you sleep.  Contact lens fitting fees vary depending on the complexity of the fit. If you have questions about whether or not you would be a good candidate for contact lenses, please email us or call our office at (850) 216-2020.
