We pride ourselves on expert contact lens exams and fittings at AccuVision Optical. This includes the additional measurements and doctor evaluation required to confirm that your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear.
Your contact lens service needed might be minimal, with one quick follow-up fitting. On the other extreme, difficult contact lens fittings may require more time, involving multiple follow-up visits.
Please note that elective contact lens services are sometimes not covered by vision or medical insurance.
Contact lenses come in tens of thousands of combinations of size, shape and power. Since they sit on top of your cornea, which is a delicate structure, they are a prescription item and must be fitted by an experienced professional.
You will be in good hands at Accuvision. Several local doctors send their “hard fit” patients to our office for proper contact lens selection. Our doctor will evaluate your eyes to determine which lens is right for you and will take into account your special needs such as dry eyes, a desire for color change, overnight wear, or the need for bifocal lenses.
