contact lenses

Kearney Eye Institute's contact lens department is a fully equipped eye lane and is staffed by specially trained contact lens technicians. Our technicians are trained to fit all types of lenses such as soft, toric, multifocal, bifocal, RGP, hybrid lenses and many others.

A good contact lens fitting starts with a comprehensive eye exam to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and to rule out any pre-existing conditions that could interfere with the wear of a contact. If you are a new patient to us and are currently wearing contacts, bring your current contact lens boxes with you to your exam. If you are wanting to try contacts, make sure to tell our customer support team so that they can schedule you with our contact lens technician the same day as your exam.

During a contact lens fitting our contact lens technician will meet with you and talk to you about your specific needs and wants in a contact. They will then determine the best contact for your specific lifestyle, eye shape, and fit of your eye.

In most cases the contact lens technician will then have you try on some contacts, and send you home with trial lenses so you can make your final decision on comfortability and vision quality throughout a couple days of wear.  In other cases, lenses will have to be specifically ordered for you and another appointment will be set up for a contact lens fitting. This fitting may take up to an hour depending on the type of appointment and if you have seen us for contacts before.

Once you and the contact lens technician are satisfied with the prescription, brand, and fit, a contact lens prescription can be finalized. Contact lens prescriptions are valid for one year after lens prescription is finalized.

Kearney Eye Institute is dedicated to researching the latest technology in contact lenses. We take pride in offering advanced contact lens to help you achieve the best quality vision possible.
