Get Your Eyes Ready for Contact Lenses
Contact lenses are an excellent way to switch up your look from your prescription glasses while enjoying the same clear vision. At Oxford Optometry, we offer contact lens exams and fittings to ensure your new contact lenses fit safely and comfortably.
Our contact lens exam is designed around your vision goals and needs. Contact us to schedule an appointment and begin exploring your contact lens options today.
Managing Your Visual Needs
During your contact lens exam, our team will test your visual acuity to determine how well you see letters and symbols from a distance. We will also review your lifestyle needs and preferences to determine what lenses will benefit you most.
At Oxford Optometry, we prioritize the patient experience. Our team strives to ensure our patients’ new contact lenses fit precisely and meet their vision correction needs.
Types of Contact Lenses
Soft contact lenses are made of malleable plastic polymers. These lenses are very flexible and, when appropriately fitted by our team, form to the cornea.
RGP lenses are more durable than soft contact lenses and have an easier care system. RGP lenses offer the advantage of allowing more oxygen to pass through to the eye.
These 2 categories of lenses include other specialty options that are used to correct various vision problems.
Scleral Contact Lenses
Scleral contact lenses can be an excellent option for patients who cannot wear contacts due to vision conditions such as dry eye syndrome and keratoconus.
These lenses are designed to reduce the dependence on contact lenses or glasses throughout the day. Ortho-K lenses are inserted at night before bed and remain in while you sleep. The lenses are then removed in the morning, allowing for clear vision throughout the day.
The Fitting Process
The contact lens fitting process is important to determine the comfort and vision correction levels of your new contact lenses.
We begin the fitting process by assessing the health of your cornea with a comprehensive check-up to ensure you can wear contact lenses without issue or discomfort. Following testing, our team will fit you with trial contact lenses and schedule follow-up appointments to confirm how your eyes are reacting to new contact lenses.
At Oxford Optometry, your comfort and safety are the priority, so we take every step to ensure you have the right fit for your contact lenses.

It was my first visit to the Office, and I was impressed. It is a very Professional Office, with nice staff. I was taken care of by Dr. Jennifer Duimering who I found to be Professional and efficient. I was able to understand all of her comments and explanations easily.

As always, the office is clean and inviting. The staff is very sociable and informative to any questions asked. Thank you for your help.

Dr. Sarah is always so enthusiastic and encouraging. My imaging was good and my eyesight has not really changed. She was so happy and congratulated me. I love having such an outgoing and enthusiastic doctor! I look forward to having an appointment every time!

My experience was exceptional from when I first made my appointment and right through until I received my glasses. Thanks to all involved in my care.
Sarah is a very caring doctor. She goes above and beyond what one would expect from an exceptional optometrist. When she was unable to get me in to see my ophthalmologist she and her receptionist ensured I got the best care. I had an appointment at the Ivey Eye Institute the next day! Thank you!
Our experience with this office has been absolutely amazing!!
