Are you ready to say goodbye to your frames?

Unlike traditional frames and lenses, contact lenses are often considered to be a liberating transition. Without the need to wear frames on your face, you’ll find that you feel less restricted.

At Dr. James J. Boilini’s office, we’ll make sure that you receive the best contact lens choices to suit your needs. There are several different types of lenses that are meant to help treat certain vision conditions or to suit certain lifestyles.

  • Disposable lenses
  • Gas permeable rigid lenses
  • Bifocal soft lenses
  • Cataract soft lenses
  • Astigmatic soft lenses
  • Daily & soft lenses
  • Extended wear soft lenses

Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Boilini determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Key Largo optometrist, call (305) 451-1481 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Boilini works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at (305) 451-1481 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.

Cosmetic Lenses

Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage any color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Cosmetic lenses are also available to transform your eye color. Call us at (305) 451-1481 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
