Contact Lenses

Do you need corrective lenses, but don’t want to always have to wear eyeglasses? If so, then contact lenses are definitely the way to go. The contacts fit comfortably over the surface of your eye to correct your vision, sight unseen.

If that sounds like just what you need in your life, then it’s time to schedule your visit to Bright Eyes Optometry. As your premier optometrist in Red Bank, we’ll help you determine if contacts are right for you, and then get you the lenses you need to see clearly always.


To best suit the needs of all people who need vision correction, contact lenses come in three main types:

  • Soft contact lenses

  • Rigid gas permeable

  • Hybrid varieties

The right type of contacts for you depends on your vision correction needs and preferences. Soft contact lenses are the most common type, however, due to their relatively low cost, ease of use, and comfort.

Your eye doctor will use your eye exam results to determine if you’re a good candidate for contact lenses and find the right type of your needs. Since we carry all the contact lens types from the leading brands, you can count on us for help selecting the perfect vision correction method for your needs.


Although they’re endlessly convenient, contact lenses are not right for everyone. So, you must start your journey with a full contact lens eye exam. The exam process evaluates the health, shape, and overall condition of your eyes to see if contact lenses will work well for you.

By the end of the visit, you’ll also be able to better determine if you’re able to properly insert, wear, and care for the contact lenses as needed. If not, that’s okay. Your eye doctor can help you get set up with a great pair of prescription eyeglasses and the sunglasses to match.


During your visit, your eye doctor will not only find your vision correction prescription but also see if you’re a good candidate for contact lenses. To do that, they will test your visual acuity to determine the right level of correction for both eyes. After that, they’ll check the health of your eyes and take precise measurements to ensure a proper fit.

Then, your optometrist will go over how the contact lenses will feel, how to properly take care of them, and all the other things you need to successfully enjoy your new lenses. If you have any questions, you can ask them at that time to ensure you have the info needed to make the absolute best eye care decisions.

If you’re eligible for contact lenses, you’ll get to select your ideal brand, and then try them out. Your eye doctor will instruct you on how to insert the lenses and give you some time to get used to them.
