Contact Lenses

We offer a wide range of contact lenses to fit your needs including contact lens exams and fittings.

Proudly serving the Greater Des Moines area and Central Iowa.

Dr. DenHartog provides contact lens exams to fit for soft or gas permeable lenses, including the newest technologies in lens materials; astigmatism, monovision, and multifocal designs; and medical scleral fits for irregular corneas and dry eyes.

A good contact lens fit starts with a thorough eye exam to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and rule out any pre-existing conditions that could interfere with contact lens wear.

We will determine the best fitting lens based on your lifestyle needs and the shape and health of your eye. In most cases, you’ll have the opportunity to try lenses on the same day as your exam. You can even go home with a few samples before making a final decision.

Our Clive optometrist follows up the initial fitting and then make any necessary changes in fit or materials to get you the best possible fit. We teach all our patients proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Then we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.

Disposable contact lenses are generally considered to be far superior in comfort and wearability than hard and rigid lenses.

A routine exam won’t provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear.

These rigid lenses aren’t as popular as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability and crisp vision.

Challenges such as astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus needn’t be a barrier to contact lens wear.
