The Importance of a Quality Contact Lens Experience
Contact lenses can be a convenient and comfortable way to correct your vision. But for contacts to work as well as possible, they have to fit well on your eye and account for your unique eye health.
Our eye doctors take the time to get to know you, closely examine your eye health, and discuss your goals so that they can recommend a brand, style, and fit of contacts that’s perfectly suited to your needs. Most of our doctors are from Western New York and they love putting their experience to use and providing our patients the clearest, most comfortable vision correction!

With this in mind, services may vary slightly across different offices — please reach out to your preferred location to find out what they can do for you!
Contact Lens Exams
Contacts require a slightly different vision prescription than eyeglasses because of where the lenses sit (directly on top of your eyes compared to a few centimeters in front of them), but that’s not all our contact lens exams offer.
We carefully examine, measure, and map the surfaces of your eyes to determine which types of contact lenses make the most sense for your optical needs, eye shape, and overall eye health, particularly if you have any cornea issues.
Contact Lens Fittings
After your exam, you’ll receive an updated prescription. Our opticians will then work with you to find your perfect fit!
From first-time contact lens wearers to “hard-to-fit” patients who have struggled with standard lenses in the past, quite a few of our patients need help finding the right product for them. Our providers teach patients how to safely put in, take out, and even maintain their contacts, and make sure that their selected lenses are a perfect fit for their unique eyes.
Specialty Contact Lenses
There are a lot of reasons patients may need specialty contacts. Corneal issues like dry eye and keratoconus may make it difficult to wear soft contacts. Some vision prescriptions may be too strong to be solved by standard contacts, as well.
Many of our practices offer specialty contact lens services such as custom-made scleral lenses that can be tailored to your needs. We walk each patient through essential wear and care for their lenses, no matter what type of contacts they purchase!
