Questions We Get a Lot


I've never worn contacts before, can you help me?

Absolutely! We'll fit you, teach you how to put them in, and give you samples before you purchase. Click the question for more details.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​You are required to take an eye exam to purchase contact lenses because they are considered a medical device regulated by the FDA. The doctor has to evaluate the proper fitting, comfort and best visual accuracy. If you have never worn this device before we need to instruct you on the safety and monitor your ability to insert and remove it. You get a free set of trial lenses with your exam to allow you to try the product before you decide to purchase. Either way, your follow up visit will ensure your satisfaction before the prescription is issued. Contact lenses can be great for all time wear, presbyopes, or specialty wear like sports or color changes. Call us for more questions.


How do your prices compare to the contacts I buy online?

We know that when your prescription is released by the optometrist, you have the choice of where to purchase them. We will give you an exact price comparison and would alert you if we could not match their price. Also, we can ship the order directly to you.
