What services are available for glasses and contacts?

Prescription glasses and contact lenses are devices you can use to improve your vision.

Modern Optometry offers a range of glasses and contact services to meet your needs and enhance your visual acuity, including:

  • Routine eye exams
  • Designer glasses frames
  • Prescription sunglasses
  • Contact lens exams and fittings

Dr. Verna also has extensive experience using specialty contact lenses like Neurolens® and rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses to address refractive errors like myopia and astigmatism in children and adults.

How do I know if I need glasses and contacts?

You might be a candidate for glasses or contact lenses available at Modern Optometry if you have difficulty seeing objects up-close or at a distance or experience issues like:

  • Blurry or distorted vision
  • Double vision
  • Poor night vision
  • Frequent headaches
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Irritated, dry eyes

Dr. Verna completes a comprehensive eye exam to assess your eye health. She also guides you through visual acuity tests to determine if you need glasses or contacts to improve your vision.

As part of your eye exam, Dr. Verna uses advanced technologies to determine what prescription strength your glasses or contacts need to be. If you plan to wear contacts, you also need a contact lens fitting exam, so Dr. Verna can take measurements of your eyes to ensure your lenses fit properly.

How long does it take to get my glasses and contacts?

Modern Optometry provides optical services on-site, including a large selection of designer eyeglass frames, lenses, and coatings like blue light protection. After sending your prescription to a medical lab, the staff contacts you when your glasses are ready – usually within a week or two.

If you’re getting prescription contact lenses, Dr. Verna can help you choose the type and brand of lens that are the best fit for your needs. The office features popular brands like Acuvue®, Bausch and Lomb®, and CooperVision®.

You can also get specialty contact lenses, including RGP lenses and bifocal or multifocal lenses, to manage issues like astigmatism, dry eye, and corneal conditions.

Additionally, Modern Optometry stocks cosmetic and prosthetic lenses to camouflage eye color irregularities, transform your eye color, or even to complete your Halloween costume.
