Exceptional Contact Lens Fitting

This is an exciting part of the practice. It has been very gratifying to help those patients who have been struggling for years with their previous contact lenses or fitting new patients at any age who thought they could not wear contact lenses. The latest improvements have been in bifocal contact lenses where we have almost a 100 percent success rate. Please click here to learn more about contact lenses.
