Dry Eye

Dry eye is a condition that’s very uncomfortable — but also very treatable. The eye doctors at Buffalo Optical diagnose and address the underlying causes while providing solutions for short-term relief.

Scleral Lenses

Many patients cannot wear standard contact lenses, and they need other options. Buffalo Optical offers custom solutions like scleral lenses, which accommodate a broader range of corneal shapes and conditions.
