Do you wish to see clearly without the need of glasses? Contact lenses are a great option! We evaluate your eye health and determine which lenses will deliver comfortable vision and ensure your eyes remain healthy. We offer contacts for astigmatism and bifocal contacts.
Patients who have been diagnosed with certain conditions such as keratoconus are unable to see clearly with glasses. Dr. Tuong is residency trained and has helped many patients see clearly with customized contact lenses designed to rehabilitate the vision.
