The contact lens fees Do Not include any medical issues that arise separately or due to the contact lenses, which is rare.
Be aware that most toric (astigmatism), high prescription or multifocal lenses have to be custom ordered for the patient so the fee has to be paid first and then trials are ordered and all follow up visits to try those lenses or other extra trials are no extra charge.
All other procedures/fees please ask any staff member including the doctor before doing the test/procedure. We prefer the patient be informed first before we do anything so there are no surprises later.

Why come to us over other practices? We use the latest technology and provide quality care.
We use the Optos which greatly reduces the need to dilate the eyes.
We use the icare tonometer which requires no drops to check eye pressure and feels much better than that air puff test! Or even the blue light goldmann tonometer.
