Contact Lenses

contact lens labContact lenses, because of their proximity to the cornea of the eye, provide incredibly sharp vision. Often people who wear glasses feel they can see best with their contact lenses. These thin or hard plastic lenses are placed directly over the cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

Geisinger’s ophthalmology department offers custom contact lens fitting, including corneal and specialty contact lens services for those with corneal irregularities and astigmatism, as well as more complex sight corrections (such as nearsightedness with reading adjustment built in). 

Why not see how contact lenses might fit into your active life? For consultations and referrals, call us at (570) 271-6531.
