Contacts

We are focused on taking the time to give you the best comfort and vision in contacts. We have contacts available to help with astigmatism, multifocals, and eye diseases like keratoconus. Dr. Price Kowaleski has attended special training seminars specializing in fitting multifocal contact lenses. We always have the newest products available — like the multifocal torics by Bausch & Lomb, Dailies Aqua Comfort Colors by Alcon, and Acuvue Transitions by Johnson and Johnson.

Soft contact lenses are made of soft, flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through to the cornea. With a little training, soft contact lenses are fairly easy to adjust to. At Price Eye Care, we make sure each new wearer knows how to properly insert and remove their lenses before going home with them. Silicone-hydrogel lenses provide the most oxygen to your eye while you wear your lenses. We even have silicone-hydrogel single use lenses as well. These are the safest and most comfortable lenses!
Rigid gas permeable contact lenses (RGPs) are more durable and resistant to deposit buildup. They tend to be less expensive over the life of the lens since they last longer than soft contact lenses. They are easier to handle and less likely to tear. However, initially it may take a few days to get used to wearing RGPs, compared to soft contacts. The advantage to RGP lenses is they offer sharper vision and better correction especially for astigmatism. Dr. Price Kowaleski works with a local lab to custom design your RGP lenses to assure the best fit for you.
“Disposable,” as defined by the FDA, means used once and discarded. With a true daily wear/single use disposable schedule, a brand new pair of lenses is used each day. By replacing lenses on a daily basis, long-term protein and fat deposits do not build up. Protein and lipids attract bacteria which can affect vision, comfort, and can harm the health of the eyes. Overwearing a lens can also starve the eye for oxygen and cause neovascularization that can also lead to loss of vision. Single use lenses are the most convenient and require less maintenance. You will also save on the cost of solution. It is important that daily disposable contacts be replaced after each use to avoid eye infection and potentially long term loss of vision. Daily disposable lenses are available in most prescriptions. Ask Dr. Price Kowaleski about them anytime!
Extended wear contact lenses are available for overnight or continuous wear ranging from one to six nights or up to 30 days. Extended wear contact lenses are soft contact lenses. They are made of flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through to the cornea. Length of continuous wear depends on lens type and your eye care professional’s evaluation of your tolerance for overnight wear. It is important for the eyes to have a rest without lenses for at least one night following each scheduled removal. Ask Dr. Price Kowaleski if an extended wear lens is right for you.
Tinted contact lenses are soft lenses that enable most patients to change the color of their iris (the colored portion of their eye). These lenses are available in many exciting colors and can provide a subtle or dramatic change in the appearance of your eyes. Colored contacts are considered a medical device and need to be fitted to your eyes. Price Eye Care offers a wide range of colors and we will be happy to fit you in these lenses and Dr. Price Kowaleski be happy to see if they are available in your prescription.
Toric contact lenses are designed to correct for astigmatism where the eye is shaped more like a football than a basketball. They are available in both soft and gas permeable designs. These lenses have one power vertically and another power horizontally. Dr. Price Kowaleski actually wears toric lenses occasionally herself and will be happy to fit you in them too.

Multifocal contact lenses, similar to multifocal glasses have more than one power to allow an individual to have clear vision, near and far. They are available in both soft lens and gas permeable lens designs. Another alternative to multifocal contacts is monovision correction. With these lenses, one eye is used for distance and the other eye for near or reading vision.  Dr. Price Kowaleski is very experienced at fitting multifocals and has attended specialty training on these lenses. Ask her if these are right for you.

The Right Age for Contacts

At Price Eye Care we fit contacts in patients from the age or 3 to 93. Often parents ask “is my child old enough to wear contact lenses?” Physically, the eyes can tolerate contact lenses at a very young age, even infants can wear contacts. The decision should be determined by the parent, child and your eye care professional. Generally, children who have mastered responsibilities may be great candidates for contact lenses. You are never too old to ask if contacts are right for you. We have several patients in their 70s and 80s who wear contact lenses successfully. (read more)

Children who want contacts instead of glasses are often more willing to adapt their schedules and follow the instructions to properly care for their lenses. In addition to being great self-esteem builders, contact lenses are also great for student athletes. Contact lenses are not a complete substitute for sports that require protective eyewear. However, some contact lenses used for recreational use can provide better optics than eyeglasses. Compared with eyeglasses, contact lenses provide better peripheral vision, which may improve your child’s athletic performance.

To determine if contact lenses are right for your child or teen, please call us to schedule an appointment. Dr. Price Kowaleski will help you and your child make this important decision.
