Q.) Can I wear contact lenses?
A.) Successful contact
lens wear is based on a number of factors, but recent advances in the
contact lens field have allowed most patients to wear contact lenses
successfully. If you were once told you could not wear contact lenses,
chances are things may have changed. If you are interested in becoming a
contact lens wearer, speak with one of our doctors.
Q.) My eyeglasses are always so
thick. Can the lenses be made thinner?

your new glasses noticeably thinner. Ask one

Q.) I was told my child has a lazy
