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
Contact lenses offer vision correction similar to your glasses—they can correct refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia, and astigmatism.
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
Contact lenses fall under 2 main categories, soft contact lenses and rigid gas permeable (RGP).
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.
Scleral lenses are bigger than traditional contacts and rest on the sclera or white of your eyes. These lenses work by allowing extra space over your cornea’s surface for extra breathability.
Orthokeratology or ortho-k lenses are a great option for most patients with mild to moderate myopia or hyperopia.
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.
Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT)
At Oxford Optometry, we also offer CRT lenses. CRT uses a similar process as ortho-k lenses, and they fall under the orthokeratology umbrella.
Our team can help determine the best vision correction method for your unique visual needs.
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.

I was very impressed with not only the excellent service from the front desk to all the staff and Doctor. I was also happy to get an appointment to have my eyes checked in just a couple of days. I highly recommend this office!!!
All staff are super friendly! Always a good experience for myself as well as my family!
Dr. Andreasen and staff were absolutely amazing. My eye exam was comfortable and they were able to answer any questions I may have had. I found the perfect frames with the help of Claire and my glasses were ready very quickly! The location is beautiful and everyone made me feel welcome. Would highly recommend
Everything top touch. We were treated very professionally.
Our visit was very informative. Dr. Jennifer acted in truly professional manner explaining everything each step of the consultation. She was in no rush to finish the eye examination but took the time and effort to answer all our concerns. My husband and I were informed of all our options and the next steps we need to take.
First visit to the office was great, staff was helpful, walked me through the process for each test, and look forward to my follow up.
Dr. Nguyen is so great with kids! She has seen my five year old daughter twice now and we’ve had two great experiences. She is great at keeping my daughters attention and making eye exams fun 🙂
Dr Sarah & staff do an amazing job explaining things Best Optometrist in Woodstock
Wonderful service all round. Everyone was helpful and took the time to explain every step of the process, from examination to selecting the right glasses/lenses for me.
Jessica was/is FANTASTIC with my kids!!! She made the experience for my son so much fun!
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!
Service was very friendly as always and so efficient. I feel confident in their care. Technician helping me with selecting eye glasses was very knowledgeable and really helped me to decide on the best ones for me
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!!
