We at Optical World hope that you and your family are well. Your well-being and that of our staff are our top priority. We are scheduling fewer patient visits than normal to keep down the number of patients in our office at one time, and seating will be spread out throughout our office to better maintain social distance. We ask you to reschedule if you have a fever, cough, flu like symptoms or if you have been with someone with COVID-19 in the past two weeks. We are wearing masks, gloves as needed, we are sanitizing our hands frequently and we provide hand sanitizer. In accordance with the American optometric Association guidelines, we are asking that you come wearing a mask even if you are vaccinated. We are cleaning instruments, surfaces and furniture in between all patient interactions. Please be assured that we are taking every precaution to protect our patients, doctors and staff. With your support we will continue to provide you with the highest level of care that you have been accustomed to all these years at Optical World.
We recommend contact lenses even to those who have been unsuccessful with them in the past and who have been told they can't wear contacts. We recommend contact lenses for youngsters around the age of 10 because of their active lifestyle, for cosmetic reasons, and in some cases for therapeautic reasons.
The Contact Lens Fitting Process
During the course of a comprehensive eye examination we are happy to offer a free trial of contact lenses. We have most common prescriptions in stock. Samples of custom contact lenses for special conditions and prescriptions can be ordered. If based on the trial fit, you and the Dr are both satisfied, then our technician will teach insertion and removal of the contact lenses and give all the information necessary for successful contact lens wear. Our technician will give you solution, a case, an emergency phone number, and she will make a follow up appointment. If more than one visit is required to achieve a successful fit or a successful insertion and removal technique, we are happy to be as persistent as the situation calls for and there is no additional cost for the service. You will not order contact lenses until we all feel that success with trial contact lenses has been achieved. We guarantee your success with contact lenses; you will not pay for lenses you cannot wear.
Contact Lenses for Young People
We are often asked if contact lenses are appropriate for young people and at what age. We feel that young people around the age of ten years are good candidates because of their active lifestyle, for cosmetic reasons, and in some cases for therapeutic reasons. Parents should know that even the least responsible youngsters usually become very responsible with contact lenses if it means they don’t have to wear glasses.
Our prices are competitive with all sources of contact lenses, including 1-800-contacts. Our expertise and service are superior... our free replacements make us preferred. Contact lens trials are almost always available at the time of your examination.
We offer significant rebates and discounts when you order a year supply of contact lenses. We expect the year supply to last a year and we replace lost and torn lenses free of charge. We will take back unopened boxes of lenses if there is a change in the prescription before the year is up.
We guarantee your success with contact lenses. You will not pay for contact lenses you cannot wear.
