All You Need to Know

Seeking more versatile eyewear or tired of glasses? Contacts offer an excellent alternative. They’re not only for primary vision correction; they’re also perfect for special occasions, sports, or weekends. Our doctors aim to provide comfort and flexibility within your busy schedule. Schedule an appointment to start the contact lens journey.


At Art of Optiks, we prioritize optimal contact lens consultations and fitting services. Our doctors understand you and your eyes to ensure contacts align with your lifestyle. With our extensive experience, we offer an informative, comfortable experience to fulfill your contact lens needs.

Contact Lens Consultation

Our doctors are well-versed in the continuous advancements of the contact lens industry, striving to enhance comfort, convenience, and accessibility for wearers. When considering whether you’re suited for contact lenses, several factors come into play.


Our doctors take time to understand your lifestyle and health, assessing how they influence the best contact lens options for your unique needs. Certain eye conditions, like astigmatism and dry eye syndrome, can present challenges, and our doctors conduct thorough evaluations to ensure contact lenses are the right fit for you. Our array of lens choices includes:

  • Daily Disposables
  • Monthly Disposables
  • Toric Lenses for Astigmatism
  • Multifocals
  • Monovision
  • Toric Multifocals
  • Scleral Lenses
  • Ortho-Keratology
  • RGPs
  • Hybrid Lenses

Accompanying our contact lens consultation is a personalized one-on-one session designed to help you feel at ease with contact lenses. Transitioning from glasses to contacts might seem daunting, especially if you’re new to contacts. Our skilled technicians will provide step-by-step guidance on proper insertion and removal techniques, effectively alleviating any uncertainties and building your confidence.

Dry Eye

Dry eye is a more common condition than you might realize. It happens when your eyes lack sufficient lubrication from tears. Dry eye symptoms include:


  • Stinging and Burning
  • Blurred Vision
  • Scratchy or Gritty Feeling
  • Redness or Irritation


For some, contact lens comfort can be hindered by dryness. But don’t worry; we’re here with tailored solutions just for you! We employ top-notch technology to tackle dryness effectively. And guess what? Our doctors even have contacts designed to treat dry eye disease!


Astigmatism is highly common and refers to the irregular shape of the eye’s front surface. This uneven curvature disrupts the proper bending of light rays, resulting in symptoms such as:


  • Blurry or Distorted Vision
  • Eyestrain
  • Headaches
  • Discomfort or the Need to Squint


Those with mild to moderate astigmatism often find relief through eyeglasses or contact lenses, as these corrections counteract the uneven corneal and lens curves. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, our doctors can conduct a thorough eye exam to assess whether astigmatism is present.

Contact Lens Fitting

Your eyes are as unique as you are, and our doctors are dedicated to finding you comfortable contact lenses. Before getting fitted with contacts, it’s recommended to schedule a comprehensive eye exam to confirm your eyes’ health for lens wear and rule out any underlying issues that could hinder their use. During this appointment, our doctors will guide you through contact insertion, ensure comfort, and determine the best type for your lifestyle. They will also take measurements to ensure the chosen lens aligns with your eyes’ unique contours:


  • Corneal Curvature
  • Pupil Size
  • Tear Film Evaluation


Our objective is to provide an exceptional contact lens experience, ensuring proper and comfortable fitting. We offer various contact lens types, materials, sizes, and colors. Feel free to ask questions during your fitting, and if there are specific contact brands you’re curious about, let us know. Your satisfaction and comfort are our priorities.
