Specialty Contact Lenses Services, Because Eyes Are Special

When it comes to our senses, vision has high value. We depend on sharp, comfortable vision for almost everything we do.

That’s why our Blacksburg, VA, optometrists make it our mission to provide a variety of specialty services to keep everyone seeing as clearly as possible – even people with complicated, hard-to-fit eyes.

If you’ve been told in the past that contact lenses won’t work for you, it’s not a reason to surrender to blurred, painful vision! We fit specialty contact lenses for a range of problems, including contacts suitable for dry eye syndrome, and scleral lenses for keratoconus, high astigmatism and other corneal disorders.

If you haven’t achieved crisp, smooth vision with daytime contacts and you find eyeglasses to be bulky or inconvenient, ask us about ortho-k lenses!
