Contact Lenses

If you don't like the way eyeglasses look or feel on your face, you're not alone. The good news is, an eye doctor at Richards & Wegener, Optometrists can help you find the perfect contact lenses for your needs.


Are Contacts Right for You?

The first thing you need to think about if you're considering contact lenses is whether they're the right solution for you or not. While contacts are a little less intrusive than eyeglasses in a lot of ways, there are also a lot of things to get used to when you switch over to contact lenses. Some people simply aren't comfortable putting contact lenses in their eyes and taking them out each day.

It's also important to ask your eye doctor if your vision condition can be treated with contact lenses. While there are now several specialty contact lenses available, there are still some conditions for which an eye doctor will recommend some type of eyeglasses rather than contact lenses.

Soft Lenses

Soft contact lenses are the most commonly used type because they're simple and effective. Soft contact lenses can be used to treat a range of conditions, plus they easily conform to the shape of your eyes. The softness of these lenses also makes them more comfortable for long-term wear for many users.

Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses

Dryness was a problem for a long time with rigid contact lenses, but rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contacts are a great solution to that problem. These lenses are designed to be permeable, which means your eyes stay moisturized and get plenty of air. Plus, RGP lenses are often used in cases where soft lenses aren't an option, so it could be that this is the best solution for you. Regardless, RGP contact lenses are great in terms of visual performance.

Specialty Lenses

If you have an ocular disorder that can't be treated with RGP or soft lenses, you can also get several specialty lenses and bifocal contacts from our Liberty eye doctor. Even if you don't have a mild vision problem that's typically treated with contact lenses, a good specialist can still find contact lenses that work for you.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I had such a great experience today! It was hands down the most personable and informational eye exam I have ever had and I have been wearing glasses nearly my entire life! Highly recommend!"
  • "Dr. Wegener was so great with my daughter! She had a previous experience at another optometrist's office that left her feeling pretty scared about eye exams. Dr. Wegener was patient, explained everything in detail, completed her exam without any surprises or scares, and was very encouraging when she was picking out frames. She left with a huge smile on her face, excited to start wearing glasses. Will definitely be bringing the rest of the family! Thanks, Dr. Wegener!"
  • "It was an amazing experience and they explained everything very well. Everyone made me feel super comfortable and made sure I understood what they were explaining to me. Will definitely refer everyone I know to them and I am definitely making this my permanent eye doctor office."
  • "Doctor Wegener goes above and beyond for his patients. I can't say enough good things about him. He responds extremely quickly even after hours through their Facebook page and even met us after hours for an emergency. I refer everyone I know to him."
  • "Recently visited Dr. Wegener for our 7 year old son. We had a great experience! Dr Wegener was patient with our son's wiggles, but communicated clearly with him, in order to get a thorough exam. Dr. Wegener took care to fit our son's glasses well, which doesn't always happen at larger eyewear stores. I also appreciated all the education Dr Wegener provided. Ashley, the receptionist, is friendly and helpful, and the entire office is calm and welcoming."

  • "I can't say enough great things about Doctor Wegener. He fit my son in short notice for an eye issue and met my husband on a day the office was closed for what we considered an emergency. He's incredibly kind and cares about his patients. I will recommend him to everyone"
    Joleen J.
  • "Dr. Wegener and his staff are amazing. We saw him for a second opinion and couldn't have been happier with our experience. He was extremely thorough and really got to the root of the problem. We have loved every aspect of our care and will definitely be regular patients from now on."
    Christine M.
  • "Staff is so friendly & helpful and there is a calm feel to the office which is so nice. You don't feel like you're in a cattle call waiting for your number. Dr. Wegener equally brings a relaxed, calm, yet thorough and knowledgeable experience. He is the first in all my years of eye exams and eyewear fittings who took the time to actually educate me on my eyes and care for them. You get a personal feel and know you've been heard.

    For those who avoid making phone calls to another human being for appointments - fear not! You can use messenger or texts to talk to them!

    Great experience, highly recommend!"
