Contact lenses

We offer a wide variety of contact lenses, including soft, gas permeable and custom contacts. We also offer the latest in contact lens technology. We go out of our way to select lenses that provide the best health benefits and ensure a proper fit.

If you are “hard to fit” or have a complex prescription or challenging eye condition, our optometrists can help. They are experts in specialty contacts and in treating a wide range of eye conditions.

  • After some types of surgery, astigmatism may happen that can’t be corrected with regular eyeglasses. In these cases, we fit advanced-design custom lenses.

  • Bring your used contact lenses and packaging to Blink Optical for recycling. We send them to TerraCycle®, a nationwide recycling program focused on reducing waste and creating new items from recycled materials.

  • Dye eye is the leading reason for contact lens discomfort. Our providers can help determine the best type of contact lens for you. They’ll also help manage your eye health. Treatment options may include:

    • Eye drops
    • Medication
    • Warm compresses
    • Changes to your diet
    • Punctal plugs (tiny devices placed in the tear ducts) to keep the eyes moist

    If your dry eye condition is serious, we strongly suggest seeing an optometrist.

  • Have you been told you’re unable to wear contact lenses due to your astigmatism or because your prescription is too high? Our custom-fit contact lenses allow you to enjoy the benefits of contact lenses regardless of your prescription.

  • The iris is the colored part of the eye. It helps control how much light enters the pupil. If you have an iris problem and want a cosmetic solution or tinted contact lenses to help decrease or eliminate glare, we can help.

  • Keratoconus is a disease that causes the outer layer of the eye to thin and change shape, leading to vision loss. As the condition gets worse, specialty contact lenses are needed. The right lenses can delay or eliminate the need for surgery as the disease gets worse.

    If you're thinking about surgery, we suggest seeing one of our specialists first. Contact lenses for keratoconus may be considered medically necessary. If so, the cost may be partly covered by insurance.

  • If you need reading glasses but want to keep wearing contact lenses, we offer multifocal contacts in soft and gas-permeable lenses. Our optometrists will work with you to determine which contact lenses best suit your needs and lifestyle.
