More Choices Than Ever!
While some people enjoy the fashion statement of eyeglasses, others seek an alternative to glasses; preferring contact lenses. The Eye Associates carries a full range of contact lens brands and products, and many times we are able to fit you the same day.

Some common types of contact lenses that we fit are:

  • Disposable daily wear contact lenses
  • Colored contact lenses to change your eye color
  • Extended wear contact lenses for overnight wear
  • Bifocal contact lenses providing both near and distance vision
  • Monovision contact lenses as an alternative to bifocals
  • Toric contact lenses for correction of astigmatism
  • Gas Permeable (GP) contact lenses
  • Contact lenses for keratoconus patients
  • Prosthetic contact lenses to mask eye disfigurements
  • Silicone Hydrogel contact lenses that transmit more oxygen
  • Special-Effect contact lenses, especially popular at Halloween
  • Specialty sports team contact lenses to support your favorite football team
  • Specialty sports contact lenses, such as the Nike Maxsight, great for golf and tennis. (Contact lenses are especially popular with athletes because they provide a full field of unobstructed vision, when participating in sports.)
