Jahnle Eye fits patients with a variety of contact lenses to meet every unique need for vision, comfort, style, and more. With so many contact lens design and material options, there is virtually no reason not to proceed with contact lenses. Our optometrists take a holistic approach in fitting each patient in accordance with their lifestyle. If you opt for contact lenses, our optometrists can evaluate your needs in order to fit you correctly and comfortably. We can help you navigate the many choices such as daily wear, extended wear and disposables to perfectly suit your life . We offer a selection of all of the top contact lens brands, including Acuvue, CIBA Air Optix, Bausch & Lomb, Fresh Look and Proclear. We also fit specialty lenses for a variety of vision conditions, including bifocal, monovision, toric (astigmatism), and keratoconus lenses (disfigured cornea).
Disposable Contact Lenses
Active patients and teens can benefit from 1 day disposable contacts, such as Vistakon's Acuvue 1 day Moist, Trueye 1 day, CIBA's Focus Daily Aqua Comfort Plus, or Coopervision's Proclear 1 day.
Bifocal and Multifocal Contact Lenses
For our presbyopic patients in need of bifocal contacts, multifocal contacts like Air Optix Multifocals by CIBA, Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia by Vistakon, and Bausch and Lomb's Purevision multifocals are available at Jahnle Eye. Multifocal lenses can outperform monovision (one eye corrected for distance vision and the other eye corrected for near vision) and they can provide superior vision for presbyopes.
Extended Wear Contact Lenses
For patients interested in extended wear contacts, CIBA's Air night/day and Bausch and Lomb's Purevision 2, provide the most oxygen permeability and they can safely be worn for up to 30 days of extended wear. Two week daily wear contacts are also available, such as Vistakon's Acuvue Oasys with Hydraclear Plus and Coopervision's Avaira; these lenses provide hydration to the cornea and comfort to the patient. One month daily wear contacts such as Coopervision's Biofinity, CIBA's Air Optix Aqua , Bausch and Lomb's Purevision 2 , provide durability, stability and comfort.
Colored Contact Lenses
Colored contact lenses are another popular trend in contact lenses. Alcon's Freshlook colorblends and enhancers provide every color desired. Check out Alcon's updated Freshlook Color Studio at www.freshlookcolorstudio.com. This is Alcon's interactive application that allows users to virtually try Freshlook brand lenses through their updated photos. Vistakon's Acuvue 2 colors are also available for opaque and enhancer requests. During your contact lens fitting at Jahnle Eye, our optometrists will provide you with color contact trials.
Let's not forget our patients with astigmatism. There are many toric (astigmatic) contact lens designs and wearing schedules. At Jahnle Eye, we have Vistakon's Acuvue Oasys for Astigmatism ( 2 week Daily Wear), Coopervision's Biofinity ( 1 month Daily Wear), Purevision Toric (1 month extended wear), Focus Daily Toric (1 day disposables). These toric contacts modalities, design, and wearing schedules allow our optometrists to meet most toric patients.
Hard Contact Lenses
For patients with dry eyes, high astigmatism, or irregular corneas (keratoconus), Rigid Gas Permeable contacts are the best alternative for correction. RGP's provide the highest oxygen permeability to the cornea, provide superior vision, and minimizes the risk of contact lens complications. Our RGP contacts are customized to your individual corneal measurements, prescription and contact lens material. For example, lenticular lenses have thinned edges for comfort, this is ideal for patients with very high corrections. Multifocal RGP's are also available. RGP lenses are initially ordered under warranty, this allows our optometrists to modify the contacts prior to finalizing the parameters.
Our optometrists at Jahnle Eye will discuss your contact lens options during your contact lens exam/fit. Despite a steady stream of contact lens designs and materials, not all contact lenses and solutions meet all patients' needs. Multipurpose solutions such as Alcon's Optifree Replenish, Renu, Biotrue are meant to clean, disinfect and store your contacts. However, sometimes due to occupational demands, computer use, or misuse of contacts, ocular discomfort occurs. There is a definite link between deposited lenses (debris on contacts detected during the exam) and dry eye symptoms. How do you know which contact lens solution to pick? Our optometrists will assess your contact lens wear, and discuss your best contact lens solution options. For example, CIBA's Clear Care, a peroxide based solution, or enzymatic daily/weekly regimen is at times recommended based on your contact lens needs.
