Book Your Contact Lens Exam & Fitting Today 

The first step to receiving the right type of contact lens is to book a contact lens exam and fitting.

A proper fitting helps your eye doctor determine your contact prescription by measuring your eyes to find the correct size, style, and shape of contact lens needed. During this exam, your doctor can determine if you could benefit from a specialty contact lens such as RGP lenses.
