Contact Lenses

Contact lens fitting is an art and with Dr. Thompson's experience of over 15 years, he provides customized service with careful consideration of each patient's unique needs (i.e., curvature of the cornea, position of the eyelids and overall eye surface health, etc.) during the selection and fitting process.

 

There is a contact lens solution for almost every vision problem such as high powers, astigmatism and even bifocal needs. We carry a wide array of the latest and greatest in different contact lens brands.

 

A new generation of "super permeable" contact lenses called silicone hydrogel lenses represent a breakthrough over traditional soft contact lens materials. They are healthier because silicone allows much more oxygen to pass through the lens resulting in better overall eye health. Recent studies show silicone hydrogel lenses deliver 3-5 times the oxygen to the cornea compared to their conventional counterpart. Advantages of silicone hydrogel lenses include: less build up, less drying, lower risk for infection, ease in handling due to increased rigidity and much lower incidence of complications with extended/continuous wear use.
