Beyond just checking your vision, our comprehensive eye exams prioritize your eye health. A dedicated contact lens exam is a key part of ensuring the right prescription for glasses and addressing your specific comfort needs with contact lenses.

Support for Patients with Unique Needs

We believe in finding solutions for everyone, even if you think contact lenses aren't an option. Whether it's dry eyes, severe astigmatism, or other challenges, our caring team specializes in helping those with unique needs.

Personalized Consultations for Your Comfort

In the dynamic world of contact lenses, our consultations are more than just discussions — they are conversations about your life and health. We consider your preferences, whether daily disposables or monthly lenses and help you choose between soft or rigid gas-permeable lenses. If you need guidance on colored contacts or multifocal lenses, we're here to help.

Precision in Fitting for Your Comfort

Our eye doctor takes precise measurements to ensure your contact lenses fit perfectly. Each detail matters, from the curvature of your cornea to the size of your pupil or iris. We pay special attention to your tear film to address common issues like dry eyes, ensuring your lenses stay comfortable.

Trying Before Deciding

Before you commit to purchasing contact lenses, we offer a trial to ensure your comfort. You will have 15-20 minutes to get used to the lenses, and only when you are comfortable will we proceed with your personalized order. Our team will provide clear instructions on inserting, removing, and maintaining your lenses.

Ongoing Care Because Your Eyes Matter

Your eye health is our ongoing commitment. We ensure your lenses fit comfortably and address any discomfort with adjustments, different lenses, or care routines during follow-up appointments.

Exploring Gentle Alternatives: Orthokeratology (CRT & VST)

For those seeking a gentler approach, orthokeratology (ortho-k) provides non-surgical correction with specially designed lenses. This innovative method aims to reshape your eyes, correcting mild to moderate nearsightedness and astigmatism with care.

Hard-to-Fit Contacts

Challenges like astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus, or dry eyes shouldn't hinder your contact lens experience. At Premier Eye Center, we take the time and care to find the right solution for your situation.
