Where to Be Fit for Contact Lenses

Once the proper prescription is determined by one of our pediatric ophthalmologists at Pediatric Ophthalmic Consultants, if appropriate, your child may be fit for contact lenses by an optometrist. At the optometrist, your child will have testing to determine which brand and size contact lens affords the best vision and comfort. Part of this contact lens fitting appointment is training your child to insert and remove the contact lenses. This list is generated by our patients’ feedback and our recognition of quality work and child-friendly service. This list is subject to change with additions and deletions. Other excellent child-friendly optometrists who fit contact lenses well are added to this list when they are discovered.
