Contact Lens Brands Just For You
Contact Lenses That Fit Your Eye & Designed For Your Vision Needs
Are you tired of the “same old same old” when it comes to your eyeglasses? Refresh your look with a wide array of contacts that you can wear daily. Choices range from soft lenses, colored lenses, and bifocal and multifocal lenses, to daily disposable soft contacts, monthly disposables, and rigid lenses with high oxygen permeability. There is a multitude of options now available to contact lens wearers.
Bifocal and Multifocal Contact Lenses
Bifocal and multifocal lenses contain more than one focal point. Bifocal lenses are composed of two prescriptions in the same lens that allows for contact lens wearers to comfortably see close-up, for example, for reading, as well as distances. Multifocal lenses have a range of lens power incorporated into the prescription depending on your unique corrective needs.
Gas Permeable (GP) Contact Lenses
Gas Permeable contact lenses are rigid, unlike the typical soft contact lenses. However, they offer durability, clear crisp vision, and high oxygen permeability that promotes good eye health. But are they right for you? Our optometrists help determine which lens is the best option starting with the initial eye examination and lens fitting and continuing with long-term follow-up to ensure the maximum comfort, contact lens wearability, and longevity of your vision.
Toric Contact Lenses for Astigmatism
Toric lenses are specifically developed for the eye health of those who suffer from astigmatism. This common vision condition causes blurry vision due to an irregularly-shaped cornea. With proper care, a professional contact lens fitting, and long-term follow-up, the effects of astigmatism can be significantly lessened and clear vision can be restored.
Helping You See Better Has Never Been This Simple
During the initial eye exam, we address any pre-existing conditions and past eye injuries that could make contact lens wear difficult. Concerns about blurry vision are discussed to determine the best vision correction treatment options.
The exam answers important questions for both the doctor and patient: Is a disposable soft contact best or is it better to wear rigid lenses? What is the best fitting lens and what is the proper contact lens care? Are colored lenses on trend or not? What is the latest technology in eye care, eyewear, and contacts? Are daily disposable lenses a better value than monthly disposables or even rigid lenses?

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you get fitted for contact lenses?
To guarantee there is a good contact lens fit that is suitable for your needs, your eye doctor will first perform a thorough eye exam and lens fitting. This comprehensive process allows your eye care provider to take a deep look at your eye health and vision needs to determine which type of lens would suit you best.
Once your optometrist determines that your eyes can wear contact lenses comfortably, the next step is finding a pair of contact lenses suitable for your needs.
After your initial fitting, your eye doctor will provide a few samples of trial contact lenses for you to wear until your follow-up appointment. If your contact lens starts to feel uncomfortable or causes irritation, remove it immediately and give your Moses-Mouser office a call as soon as you can.
Your lenses might need some additional adjustments to ensure a good fit and Moses-Mouser is happy to make them. Just let your eye care professional know during your follow-up appointment to adjust your prescription before ordering your supply of lenses.
Are eyeglass prescriptions and contact lens prescriptions the same?
Although your contact lens and eyeglass prescription may look similar, it does not mean this will give you the same visual acuity if you try to convert one to the other. Glasses sit slightly away from your eyes, and contact lenses sit directly over your eye, so two different tests and measurements are required. Depending on the refractive error, the strength of the lens needed to correct it, and the type of contact lens you need, the parameters specified on your glasses prescription may be significantly different from those on your contact lens prescription.
Can I buy contact lenses over the counter?
You can buy contact lenses online, but you must have a valid contact lens prescription from your eye care professional. Once you have a valid prescription, you may buy contact lenses anywhere you like.
By The Contact Lens Rule and for your safety, you can only purchase the brand of contact lens your eye doctor prescribed using a valid prescription.
I have read some stuff about hard contact lenses. Is there a difference between soft lenses and hard lenses?
There is a difference between these contact lenses. If you choose to wear soft contacts, you can expect an easy adjustment from glasses if you have never worn contacts before. Soft contact lenses are light, soft, and made of a very flexible silicone hydrogel that forms the eye shape and helps stay put. Oxygen is able to pass through the soft contact lens easily and can help contribute to your eye’s overall health.
Hard contacts or rigid contacts are a little different than soft contact lenses. Hard contacts are necessary for some patients with unique eye conditions; such as keratoconus or irregular astigmatism. These rigid contact lenses can potentially provide very crisp and clear vision and are very easy to care for. Hard contacts are incredibly durable and can last 2-3 years with correct proper hygiene before needing to be replaced.
