Clear Vision Awaits You
With decades of experience and using cutting-edge technologies, we provide a wide range of regular and specialty contact lenses.
We design and fit a variety of contact lenses for healthy eyes as well as for diseased and damaged eyes, such as those with a complication from refractive surgeries and degenerative corneal diseases such as keratoconus and Pellucid marginal degeneration, etc. We also fit contact lenses for severely dry eyes.
Generally, we fit contact lenses for almost every eye.

Why Do You Need a Contact Lens Exam?
Every eye is different, with different measurements and different needs. This is the exact reason why contacts require a contact lens exam– because they aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution.
To safely and effectively bring you clear vision, we use various tools and technologies to determine your prescription.
Already have a prescription for eyeglasses? You’ll still need a contact lens exam to determine your contact lens prescription, which is different from your eyeglass prescription.
Getting Your Contact Lenses
Getting the right pair of contact lenses includes three easy steps: a contact lens exam, a contact lens fitting, and a trial period.
The Eye Exam
The first step to getting contact lenses is to receive a proper contact lens exam.
During a contact lens exam, we’ll take a comprehensive look at your entire visual system to determine your options.
The Contact Lens Fitting
After your optometrist discussed your options, the next step is to receive a contact lens fitting.
The fitting helps determine your contact prescription by measuring your eyes to find the correct size, style, and shape of contact lens needed. In some cases, we may recommend specialty contact lenses if your eyes require additional care.
The Trial Period
Once we’ve fitted your contacts, we’ll ask you to test out a trial pair to make sure your eyes adjust well to wearing contact lenses. If you notice any irritation, please remove your contact lenses immediately and give us a call.
Once your contact lens prescription is finalized, you’ll be ready to order your contact lenses and wear them regularly!
At Empress Eye Clinic, we offer a wide range of functional and fashionable eyewear for every occasion. To order contacts, please visit our online store.

Wow, what a great experience! I was able to book a same-day appointment after calling multiple optometrists in the area with an eye emergency. Both Dr.Heshmati and Dr.Habib took their time with me – it didn’t feel rushed at all, and they always ensured I was comfortable and were diligent in getting to the solution of my issue! Not only were the doctors exceptional, but the front desk staff went above and beyond to ensure I had my following appointments booked and that I had all my questions answered! All in all, fantastic experience. I highly recommend this location and wish other practices held to their standard.
Best place to go to if you’re having your first contact lenses eye exam
The receptionist (Ms. Emma & Ms. Sam rat) are really nice and polite, helped with keeping my things safe and measuring my eyes!
Dr. Heshmati is really great too, before I was using glasses and he tested me with my glasses and apparently my glasses had the wrong prescription so I couldn’t see well with them. He even gave me a great discount offer I couldn’t refuse when buying contacts with them!
The helper (Ms. Sara) is so helpful as well and has such a positive attitude as well and super friendly too. She even assisted me with putting on contact lenses and taking them off as well.
Overall, I enjoyed my visit and I’m “empressed” with my visit here. Keep up the great work!
I’ve never had an eye appointment before so I didn’t know what to expect. The staff was absolutely wonderful! Dr Heshmati was so kind and thorough and knowledgeable…he explained everything he was going to do so well and helped me with my prescription.
I had help from a wonderful lady whose name I didn’t catch…she helped me pick out the perfect frames for my new glasses and was so patient and helpful.
The staff was so friendly and approachable. I had a great experience and I highly recommend this clinic to anyone needing their eyes checked!
