Well going to an optometric professional is indeed more expensive than logging on to a random website that sells contact lenses. Why is that?
The first thing you should know is that the contact lenses purchased from your eye doctor are not more expensive than the same brands found on discount contact lens sites. What you pay a little more for are properly fitted contact lenses that are adjusted to correct YOUR particular eyesight issue.
Your optometrist is a medical doctor and an eye care professional. It makes sense to consult someone who is trained in and has spent years of their life studying everything to do with the human eye before you put something into your eye!
The optometrists you will meet at Timothy P. Kenkel and Associates take your eyesight very seriously. They will not just sell you contact lenses, they will fit you for contact lenses.
Contact lenses are an amazing innovation but your eyesight is more fragile than you may think. The proper fit and prescription for your contact lenses is crucial and it goes without saying, should not be trusted to a random website on the internet.
If you have any questions about contact lenses or eyecare matters in particular, please feel free to give us a call.
At Timothy P. Kenkel and Associates we are there for you and your eye health.
