Thinking of trying contact lenses?
There are contact lenses to correct nearly every kind of vision problem, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. At Intermountain Eye Centers we have contact lens specialists at each of our five locations to answer all of your questions. We have some of the most advanced fitting technologies available to fit contacts for special eye conditions such as keratoconous, corneal transplants and irregular astigmatism.
Both soft and rigid contact lenses can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism and presbyopia. Your doctor and contact lens specialist can help determine which type is best for you. When you call to make your appointment, be sure to tell the receptionist that you are interested in wearing contact lenses. This will help them schedule the appropriate amount of time so that all of your questions can be answered.
Our doctors are providers for the Vision Service Plan (VSP) Insurance and some Eye Med plans. Intermountain Eye Centers will get the proper authorization for your visit, and we will file your claim for you. How much easier could it be?

How to Care for Your Contact Lenses
- After inserting your contact lenses, dispose of the used solution, rinse your case with hot water and allow it to air dry.
- Be sure to rub or rinse your lenses thoroughly at night.
- Put fresh solution in your case every night.
- Replace your case every three to six months
- Be sure to use non-oily makeup remover.
- Make sure that your lower eyeliner is placed underneath your eyelashes, not on the rim above your lashes.
- Put your contacts in before you put your makeup on.
- Wash your hands with soap and water before handling your contacts. This includes before removal as well as prior to insertion.
- Never put contact lenses in your mouth or moisten them with saliva.
- All contact lens wearers should have an up-to-date pair of eyeglasses to wear in the evenings or when your eyes feel dry and uncomfortable.
