Disposable contact lenses are extremely popular these days. As an alternative to hard lenses of the past and rigid gas permeable lenses of today, they are generally considered to be far superior in comfort and wearability. They come in many different varieties, and it is important to know which is best for you. Some of the major types of disposable contact lenses on the market today are of exceptional quality. The most recommended brands are Alcon, Acuvue, CooperVision and Bausch & Lomb.

At Wooldridge Optometry our patients’ health and visual needs are a top priority. Our goal is to take time, listen, and properly address each visual problem. We specialize in contact lens fittings and dispense almost every type of contact lens.
A good contact lens fit starts with a thorough eye exam to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and to rule out any pre-existing conditions that could interfere with contact lens wear.
Our optometrist will determine the best fitting lens based on your lifestyle needs, the shape and health of your eye. In most cases, you’ll have the opportunity to try lenses on the same day as your exam. You can even go home with a few samples before making a final decision.
We follow up the initial fitting and then make any necessary changes in fit or materials to get you the best possible fit. We teach all our patients proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Then we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.
