“Eyes are the window to your soul.” Eyes also reveal a lot about your health and well being that you may not even be aware of. If you have Diabetes or High Blood Pressure, it is strongly recommended that you have an eye exam at least once a year.

Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lens Fittings
Gas Permeable lenses are typically used when “soft” lenses are not able to give the wearer optimal vision. They are much smaller than the average soft contact and are made of a harder material. People with complex astigmatism, bifocal prescriptions or that have a condition called keratoconus are commonly fit with gas permeable lenses. They take a little getting used to but most wearers find that they are just as comfortable as soft lenses as long as they are worn on a regular basis.
