Contact Lens Fitting and Exam
Before a patient can be fitted with contact lenses, a comprehensive exam is necessary. This exam is critical to ensure your eyes are healthy enough for contact lens wear and to rule out the possibility of any unsuspected, underlying conditions that may prevent contact lens use. Since a contact lens actually lays on your eye, it is important to conduct further tests and to examine the fit of the contact lenses. Knowing about your lifestyle will allow us to make a better recommendation for the best type of contact lenses for you.
Most health insurance plans cover the medical part of your exam but do not cover the contact lens services. Your contact consult involves extra testing by our doctors to evaluate your contact lenses and eye health. The tests are necessary even if you wear contact part-time or only to change your eye color. Evaluation during a contact lens consult may include: keratometry, detailed slit lamp exam, refraction over contacts, corneal topography, visual acuity with contacts and assessment of lens fit.
If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, please let us know when you schedule your appointment so we may allow more time during your visit.

Corneal Refractive Therapy
Corneal Refractive Therapy with Paragon CRT®
Now you can be free of daytime contact lenses or glasses and enjoy great vision during your daily activities without undergoing surgery! Recent clinical research combined with the latest corneal surface mapping technology, computerized manufacturing and space age oxygen-breathing materials have brought new science to corneal reshaping.
Corneal Refractive Therapy is a non-surgical process clinically developed to reshape the cornea while you sleep. The result is the temporary correction of myopia with or without moderate astigmatism.
Because Paragon CRT offers freedom from glasses and the hassle of wearing contact lenses during the day, this leading-edge technology can enhance the lifestyle of those requiring vision correction. Active individuals can freely participate in sports without the interference of glasses or bothersome contacts. It is a good option for children with fast changing prescriptions. Eye irritation and dryness, sometimes associated with contact lens wear due to outside dust and pollutants, are also eliminated.
