While contact lenses are an excellent corrective option for many, some patients have what are often called “hard-to-fit” eyes, which can make it difficult and frustrating to find contact lenses that are comfortable and effective.

At SJEA, we perform contact lens examinations and fittings, which provide us with all of the information we require to help you find the contact lenses that fit comfortably and function the way they are supposed to; providing clear, comfortable vision.

FINDING CONTACTS THAT FIT

CONTACT LENS EXAMINATIONS

Before we can fit you for new contact lenses, we must perform a thorough eye examination. This special exam serves two purposes. The first is to determine your appropriate contact lens prescription. Contact prescriptions are different from eyeglass prescriptions, so we need to ensure we have the correct and most up-to-date prescription information.

The second purpose is to ensure your eyes are healthy enough to wear contact lenses comfortably. Many conditions such as dry eye and keratoconus make regular contact lenses difficult to wear. While these conditions do not necessarily exclude you from contact lens use, they may impact what kind of contact lenses you can wear.

CONTACT LENS FITTINGS

Your eyes are as unique as your fingerprints. To help us find your ideal contact lenses, we need to measure your eyes. We use special technology to record the dimensions of each eye in exceptional detail, which helps us find the lenses that are most likely to work well for you.

Both of our locations are specially equipped with OCULUS Keratograph 5 M topographers. Designed using cutting edge corneal topographical technology this instrument allows your optometrist to examine your meibomian glands (which play an essential role in tear production) and analyze your tear film.

CONTACT LENS TRIALS

Once we have all of the necessary data, we will recommend the contact lenses that we think will work best for your needs. We will send you home with a sample pair of contact lenses to try out. If the sample contacts we give you work well and feel comfortable, we will write you a prescription for them, which can be filled at either of our locations.

If the sample contact lenses do not seem to function properly or do not feel quite right, we will give you a different pair of lenses to try. Occasionally, this process can take several attempts, however, there is no need to feel discouraged. We will continue to work with you until we find the appropriate contact lenses just for you.

Testimonials

Darlene F.

“I had a wonderful experience at SJEA from the moment I walked through the door. I had accidentally noted my appointment on the wrong day, I didn’t realize until the associate went to check me in and notified me I was not on the schedule. I had taken the afternoon off of work to attend the appointment and was frustrated with myself as I would have to completely reschedule due to a conflict I had with the appointment I had scheduled for the next day. The associate was sympathetic and immediately checked to see if there was a potential opening in the schedule. To my delight, there was! My appointment was thorough, everyone was kind and professional and findings were clearly explained. Great selection of frames, spot on with style selection during the first presentation and great feedback. Overall exceptional experience.”

“The staff is always friendly and I have never had to wait longer than 5 minutes to be seen. They listen and understand your problems and help find solutions. Dr. Phillips explained everything to me in layman’s terms so I could understand his thought process. They took the time to explain my benefits and let me know the cost each step of the way so I wasn’t shocked at the end with an unexpected bill. Additionally, the staff helped me pick out the best glasses for me and were so patient through my indecisiveness. They offer a two year scratch warranty on glasses purchased from them – which is amazing! Highly recommend this office!”
