Contact Lens Fittings
At Elmquist Eye Group we provide our patients with a full range of the most current contact lenses available. Whether you are currently wearing contact lenses or if you are interested in trying contact lenses for the first time, we can help you! We offer a large variety of lenses to best suit your needs. Contact lens options include: daily wear, extended wear, toric lenses for astigmatism, bifocal lenses, multifocal lenses, monovision, colored lenses, and rigid gas permeable lenses. There are even contact lenses designed for people with dry eyes.
We take pride in providing a thorough examination, including a contact lens fitting to determine which of the many lens types will suit your needs. This includes discussion with the doctor and special measurements that are not performed in regular eye exams. Sometimes you will need an additional appointment for the fitting. First time wearers will be provided with one-on-one instruction from one of our specially trained technicians. This instruction includes the proper insertion, removal, and care of your contact lenses. A follow-up visit will be scheduled to insure the lenses are fitting properly and that your visual goal has been met. Please be aware that a contact lens fit is not a covered service by most insurance plans. However, the fee that is payed includes all follow up visits and trial contact lenses.
