Finding Your Fit
A contact lens prescription differs from your regular eyewear prescription. After all, contact lenses sit directly on the cornea. They are a medical device that requires careful fitting to support your eye comfort.
When you book a contact lens exam, we will evaluate your overall eye health to determine which lenses are best for your eyes. We’ll take some measurements to make sure we get the sizing right too. During the exam, we’ll discuss your lifestyle, vision needs, and your expectations from contact lens wear.
Maybe you’re someone who only wants to wear contact lenses on special occasions. Or perhaps you’re a busy parent with a jam-packed bedtime routine who doesn’t have the time to clean and put away the same pair of lenses every night.
No matter your situation, we’ll take the time to listen to your needs and find the right lens fit for you. Book your contact lens exam now.
Specialty Contacts We Offer
At Island Eyecare, we offer both traditional contacts and a variety of specialized contacts. We’ll help you choose the right options based on what we discover during your contact lens exam. Some of these specialty lenses include multifocal lenses, aspheric lenses, and toric lenses.
Our goal is to provide you with lenses that support your vision and your lifestyle.
Multifocal contacts are designed to help individuals with presbyopia, an age-related condition that affects near vision. These lenses feature different powers in different areas of the lens, allowing people with presbyopia to see up close and far away.
Multifocal contacts can also be helpful for individuals with astigmatism who need a multifocal vision correction option.
They are a convenient and safe treatment option, lasting up to several months with proper care.
Aspheric contacts are designed to help address spherical aberrations in the eye, like the ones caused by corneal conditions like keratoconus.
This specially shaped contact lens can help you achieve clear and comfortable vision.
This involves gently squeezing the lids to remove the oil from the glands, which can address symptoms and support moisture to the eyes.
Toric contacts are designed to correct astigmatism. They use an irregular shape across the lens and a small anchor to keep it in place.
Toric contacts are ideal for those with astigmatism who want to wear contact lenses rather than glasses.
They are an effective way to treat chronic dry eye and restore healthy tear production.
Supporting Your Child with Contact Lenses
Contact lenses can provide a great way of supporting your child’s vision. Active kids can often break, misplace, or damage their glasses, making contact lenses a great alternative.

Clear, Unobstructed Vision
Contact lenses ensure that the child’s vision is not impaired by frames or other obstructions, allowing them to enjoy their daily activities with clear vision.
Chance to Participate in Sports
Contact lenses do not interfere with sports performance as glasses can, allowing kids to participate without worrying about breaking their glasses.
How to Properly Care & Use Your Contact Lenses
Properly caring for contact lenses is important to help keep eyes healthy. Here are some tips on how to properly care for and use your contact lenses:
- Wash and dry your hands with a lint-free towel before you handle your contacts.
- Keep your eyes open when putting in and taking out the lens.
- Clean each lens every day with a disinfecting solution.
- Replace each lens according to your doctor’s instructions.
- Avoid sleeping in contacts unless explicitly approved by an optometrist.
- Never wear someone else’s contacts, as this can lead to infection.
