Contact Lens Alert

Circle contact lenses are soft lenses that make the iris appear larger and are available widely on the Internet in many different iris configurations such as those seen worn by performers and theatrical entertainers. These lenses are not FDA approved lenses and the consumer/patient should be alerted to the potential hazards and health issues regarding wearing these types of lenses.  For more information, please review the article from the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

This examination includes the measurement of the corneal curvature, health assessment of the eye and an in-office fitting with diagnostic lenses. Proper insertion, removal and care of lenses are also demonstrated.
