Specialty Contact Lenses
Contact lenses are medical devices worn directly on the surface of the eye. Like eyeglasses, contact lenses help to correct refractive errors by adding or subtracting focusing power to the eye’s cornea and lens. Contacts provide a safe and effective way to correct vision when used with care and proper supervision. They can be a good alternative to eyeglasses, depending on your eyes and your lifestyle. For certain conditions, contact lenses may be considered medically necessary.
At Minnesota Eye Consultants, we are honored to have several Doctors of Optometry on our team offer Specialty Contact Lens services to patients. The providers that offer contact lens prescriptions at Minnesota Eye Consultants are those on our Optometry Team. If you’re interested in contact lenses, please notify our appointment team when scheduling your annual exam. They will be sure to schedule you with the correct provider, as our surgeons and general ophthalmologists do not fit contact lenses. If you’re scheduling a Contact Lens appointment only (not a full eye exam), then you must have had an eye exam within the last 6 months.
