Contact Lenses

Contact Lens CaseVisibly Better Eye Care has the experience and technology to provide our patients with the most accurate contact lens fit possible. All of our Optometrists are highly skilled in the proper fitting of contact lenses. We offer all types of contacts, many priced at or below internet prices.

We have a wide range of trial lens on site, which enables us to provide contacts lenses for our patients the same day, while their prescriptions are on order. This allows our patients to experience better vision right away, rather than having to wait until their prescriptions arrive. We carry a wide variety and styles of lenses including the following:
