During your eye exam Drs. Rob and Loree Wagner will make you their number one focus; fitting you with the most comfortable contact lenses for your eyes, ensuring the best vision possible for your prescription. They use the latest technology to evaluate, diagnose, and educate you about the best contact lenses for your unique eyes.
Remember, contact lenses are medical devices so it’s important to wear the correct lenses as prescribed to avoid any long-term or permanent damage.
Three serious things to consider before buying contacts online:
- Many online sites are not reputable. They may be selling expired, or soon-to-expire contacts, or illegal product not made in the USA which may not be up to FDA “medical device” standards.
- If they don’t require your prescription… it is a scam. Because contact lenses sit on surface of your cornea they can carry potential health risks. All lenses, even decorative ones, are legally required to be fit and prescribed by an Optometrist.
- “Discount” sites may mislabel product, sending you the wrong lenses made of different material and putting you at risk for serious eye concerns; allergic reactions, corneal abrasions, or worse. One that comes to mind is the popular Hubble contacts site, whose product is not the quality they claim.
At Family Vision Center we want to educate you about proper eye health, as well as serving all your vision needs. In the case of contact lenses, what you don’t know can hurt you, and there are a lot of factors to consider. If you have any concerns about your contacts or eye health we are here for you.
*Even if you’re not yet a patient at Family Vision Center you can still purchase contacts by calling 303-427-2020 with your contact lens prescription.
