Quality Contact Lenses

Getting the right contact lenses is easy, but it does take a few steps. At Apex Eyecare, the process begins with an eye exam to determine the type of lens that best fits the shape of your eye.

A thorough exam from Dr. Michael C. McCLay can ensure the prescription for your contact lenses are up-to-date and help rule out any conditions that could affect wearing lenses. Typically, you’ll be able to try on contact lenses on this first appointment and take a few samples home before you make a final decision on which type of lenses are best for you.

You’ll learn about the proper way to care for your lenses and the consequences for not following proper care.

After your optometrist visit for an initial fitting, you can return for a check to make any necessary changes that can help you get the best possible fit. Then, return for regular visits so that we can monitor the condition of your lenses, and let you know when it’s time for a new set.

Apex Eyecare offers a wide variety of contact lenses that can suit almost any need. We have bifocal/multifocal, disposable soft lenses, toric and colored lenses.

  • You’ll need more than a routine exam for the proper contact lenses. An eye exam for contact lenses can provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear. This appointment can ensure you have the best prescription for your contact lenses.
  • If you’re throwing your old contact lenses away in the sink, you might want to reconsider that habit. They belong in the trashcan.

  • In general, disposable contact lenses are considered to be superior in comfort and wearability than hard and rigid lenses.
  • GP lenses are rigid lenses and they aren’t as popular or well-known as soft lenses. Still, they do offer upsides like durability, crisp vision, and high oxygen permeability.
  • Wearing contact lenses do require more time and patience if you have conditions such as astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes. But they won’t prevent you from wearing contact lenses.
  • It’s now a myth that you can’t wear soft contacts if you have astigmatism, thanks to toric contact lenses.
  • If you don’t like the look, feel or inconvenience of reading glasses, you can now turn to contact lenses. Bifocal and multifocal lenses are also available in both soft and rigid contact lenses.
