At Jahnle Eye we offer a wide variety of contact lenses to meet your lifestyle and vision needs. Whether you are new to contacts or have been wearing contacts for many years, our optometrists will evaluate your eyes and discuss your visual demands to select the best contact lenses for you. While annual comprehensive exams are important for your eye health, a contact lens evaluation is an essential additional step for those who wear contacts.

We offer a selection of all of the top soft contact lens brands, including:
- Johnson & Johnson (Acuvue Oasys, Vita, 1 Day Moist/Oasys)

If you are coming in for the first time to our office, please bring your contact lens parameters with you.
Types of Contact Lenses
There are soft daily disposable (single-use) contacts, as well as daily wear two-week or monthly replacement contacts. Each of those modalities are further designed to correct astigmatism (toric) or near vision (multifocal) if needed. Multifocal or monovision contact lenses can often give the wearer more freedom from needing reading glasses.
Specialty Contact Lenses
We also fit specialty lenses for a variety of conditions, including high prescriptions, keratoconus or irregular corneas, and other medical conditions. For patients with high prescriptions or irregular corneas (keratoconus), Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP), Hybrid or Scleral contacts are typically the best option for correction. These lenses are all custom designed and created for each eye.
What to expect at a contact lens evaluation
For new wearers, you will be fit with diagnostic lenses. Next, you will be trained on their proper insertion, removal and care. We will schedule you for a follow up appointment a week or two later to further assess the fit, vision, and comfort of your new trial contacts lenses. This allows us to make any necessary adjustments prior to finalizing your prescription.
For our established wearers, we will ensure that your current contact lenses are keeping your eyes at their healthiest and your vision at your best. We will discuss compliance and the newest advancements in contact lens designs, materials, and solutions.
