Clinician quote

Contact lenses can be a great alternative option to wearing eye glasses. But it is important to keep in mind that they are medical devices.

Dr. Mazza shares safety tips

Overview

Our optometrists specialize in glasses and contact lenses for patients with vision conditions such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia (difficulty reading up close). They have extensive knowledge of contact lens fitting methods, techniques, and newly available lenses.

Many people choose to wear contact lenses as an alternative to eyeglasses, even though the full visual potential can be achieved with glasses. In some cases, ophthalmologists may recommended contact lenses as medically necessary to achieve the best visual potential.
