what are Contact Lenses?
Nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and age-related vision loss (presbyopia) are all very common visual impairments that affect a large number of people around the world. Thankfully, these issues can be easily treated with prescription contact lenses, eyeglasses, sunglasses, or a combination of the three to suit your lifestyle and daily needs. At The Eye Center of Central PA, we offer a full line of contact lenses (including specialty lenses for corneal conditions and astigmatism) to suit your unique needs at each of our optical centers throughout Central Pennsylvania.
Our facilities utilize the most advanced technology to fully assess your refractive error and eye health so we can accurately determine which contact lenses are right for your needs. Get in touch with one of our offices to schedule your eye exam with an optometrist and take your first step to see the world more clearly.
who gets contact lenses?
To determine the type and prescription of contact lenses you need, one of our optometrists will perform a comprehensive eye exam to fully understand your refractive error and vision needs. For many patients, contacts are the most convenient way to achieve their best sight on a day-to-day basis. Along with their convenience, contact lenses are designed to address a wide range of refractive errors, eye shapes, and eye conditions. Some of the more common types of contacts we offer include daily wear, one-day wear, bifocal, and astigmatism lenses.
Modern contacts are easier to wear now than ever before. In fact, as high as 90% of contact lens users report experiencing no discomfort. When opting for contacts, eyeglasses, sunglasses, or a combination of the three, it's important to consider factors, like your lifestyle, work conditions, daily activities, eye health, and your own unique preferences.
Contact Lenses Reviews
"Came here for my eye and contact lens exam and my 5 yo son’s first eye exam. Dr Bonner was fantastic and so were all of the staff. My son actually had fun and didn’t worry a bit. I’m one of “those” that hates anyone messing around near my eyes and he was so great, I really wasn’t uncomfortable. Had to bring my glasses back, after my 2 yo tried to clean them for me and bent them into the strangest shape. The technician had no problem fixing what I was sure was unfixable. It’s been 2 months and they’re still holding strong. Only thing that stinks about this location is there minimal hours."- T.R. / Google / Oct 05, 2019

Contact Lenses Follow-Up
At The Eye Center of Central PA, patients are able to receive their contacts quickly and conveniently, typically within as little as four business days. Individuals who get contact lenses will need to attend a follow-up appointment in about six weeks to make sure their lenses fit well and are functioning normally. Even after patients receive vision correction help with contact lenses or glasses, it's still essential to attend yearly or biennial appointments to have their eyes thoroughly examined for any changes in their refractive error and to ensure that their eyes are still healthy. During these appointments, we will assess the overall health of the eyes, as well as the patient's prescription to see if it needs to be adjusted.
