With the latest advances in optical technology, almost everyone can now wear contact lenses, no matter what type or to what extent their vision problems are. This means that patients with astigmatism and those who need bifocal or multifocal lenses could both be helped by some form of contact lens. Our office offers a comprehensive array of contact lenses to match each patient’s individual needs.
Whatever your lifestyle or preferences, Dr. Van Norman can help you find the contact lenses or eye care solutions that are right for you.
A contact lens is a corrective, therapeutic device that is usually placed directly onto the cornea of the eye.
Many people choose to wear contact lenses as opposed to eyeglasses as they provide a wider field of vision and are more suitable for a number of sporting activities.
Contact lenses vary according to construction material, wear time, replacement schedule, and design. They are medical devices, regulated by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. All contact lenses require a prescription so that the properties of the lenses can be properly matched to suit the patient’s needs.
