Considering Contacts? Here’s what you need to know
Since contact lenses move with your eye, there are no peripheral distortions or frames blocking your view, giving you a completely clear visual field.
If you’re an athlete or are active in general (except for swimming), you’ll love the freedom contact lenses give you.
Contact lenses give you the ability to wear sunglasses and safety glasses over your contact lenses, so you don’t have to spend more money on additional eyewear prescriptions.
Contact lens exams take longer than regular eye exams and require more follow-up visits to ensure they are properly and safely working for your eyes.
Wearing contact lenses is a commitment. You need to be thorough in proper lens care, cleaning, storage and replacement of your lenses. If you fail to follow the replacement schedule and perform the necessary hygiene, you will be at risk for infection and potential permanent vision damage.
Does vision insurance cover contact lenses?
Most vision insurance plans cover at least part of the cost of contact lenses, while others will cover all of it. Our eye doctors accept most vision insurance plans, including union health and welfare funds. If you're unsure about what your vision insurance plan covers, we're happy to do a free coverage check for you if you call or stop by one of our vision centers with your insurance card.
