Comprehensive Contact Lens Exams

Dr. Durante makes sure every contact lens exam is comprehensive and tailored to each patient’s unique needs and concerns. Your new contact lens exam will include a trial pair of contact lenses, insertion, and removal training if needed, and a vision test to determine your specific prescription. We also recommend follow-up visits and progress evaluations to maximize your vision and make sure no problems arise.

Specialty Contact Lenses

Do your eyes water excessively? Do you have a different prescription in each eye? Do you just want to experiment with new eye color? We offer a variety of specialty contact lenses to make sure every patient has access to the contacts they need.

Our lens options include the following types:

Soft Disposable Contact Lenses

these comfortable, close-fitting contacts may last a day, a week, or a month, depending on the product

Gas-Permeable Contact Lenses

more durable eyewear options, which require a period of adaptation

Bi-focal Contact Lenses

multifocal contacts correct near-sightedness and far-sightedness as needed

Monovision Contact Lenses

correct your dominant eye with one prescription contact and your non-dominant eye with a different prescription

Toric Contact Lenses

special soft lenses that correct your astigmatism

Colored Lenses

both prescription and non-prescription contacts are available with artificial colors, to correct color irregularities or change your eye color for cosmetic reasons

We will help you find the best option based on your lifestyle, occupation, eye health, eye shape, and vision. If you’re unfamiliar with contact lenses, our optometry team will even show you how to fit the lenses yourself, take care of them, and adapt to your new vision.

Bifocal Contacts

Bifocal contact lenses are a type of contact lens that combines two different prescriptions in the same lens. One component corrects nearsightedness and the other prescription addresses farsightedness or farsightedness. Several types of bifocal contacts are available; your eye care provider can help you determine which option is best for you.

The reading power is in the center of the lens, and the distance (far vision) is on the outside. Or, the distance could be in the middle with the reading on the outside.
The distance is on the top, and the reading power is on the bottom, similar to bifocal eyeglasses. These contact lenses are weighted at the bottom to keep the reading power on the bottom.
The reading and distance powers blend from the outside towards the center.

At your optometry clinic, you’ll be able to explore your options fully. Generally, several factors influence the type of bifocal contacts that are right for you, including:

Your age
Your eyeglass prescription
The type of work you do
How you use your eyes, such as looking straight ahead or looking down when you read
Typical lighting conditions when you read
Your eye shape
Your pupil size

Some people adjust quickly while others need some time. You might notice that images jump when you switch between close-up and distance vision, or you might see a ghost image when you read. You might see a halo around lights, or your vision might change when the lens moves on your eyeball. If you experience any of these quirks, talk with your eye care provider. Sometimes, these effects are part of adapting to your new corrective lenses and will go away with time. However, in some cases, you might need to try a different type of lens.

If you’re having trouble seeing clearly both up-close and at far distances then bifocal contact lenses offer a convenient alternative to bifocal eyeglasses. It may take longer to adjust to bifocal contacts than to glasses, but many find that it’s a worthwhile investment.

Colored Contacts

Colored contact lenses allow you to temporarily change your eye color whether or not you need to correct impaired vision. In this way, you can create a more subtle eye appearance, wear a crazy design for special occasions, or just enjoy a new eye color.

Yes, but only if your colored contacts also contain a prescription to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. Whether you have prescriptive lenses or cosmetic colored lenses, the center of the lens remains colorless to avoid affecting how you see. Only the part that covers your iris, or the colored part of your eye, contains color; that’s what changes your visible eye color.

Yes, most colored contact lenses use lines, dots and other shapes to mimic the pattern of your iris.

At your optometry clinic, you may choose from three types of tints:

  • Visibility tint : Your contact lens may have a light green or blue tint to help you see it better. This makes it easier to insert and remove your lens. It’s easier to find, too, if you drop it. Visibility tints are so faint that they won’t affect your vision or eye color.
  • Enhancement tint : This type of contact lens is slightly darker than a visibility tint and is designed to enhance your natural eye color. This type of tint works well for people who want a more intense eye color.
  • Opaque tint : This contact lens can give you a completely new eye color. People with dark eyes usually need an opaque tint to alter the color of their eyes.

The most commonly selected colors are green, blue, hazel, violet, amethyst, gray and brown. Theatrical contact lenses can create special effects for movies and costumes to make you look like a vampire or alien. However, theatrical contact lenses are still a medical device—they should never be shared with anyone.
If you’re thinking about color contact lenses, your eye care provider can help you select the right type of colored contacts depending on your eye color, quality of vision and desired appearance.
