Want to reinvent your look?

If you’ve been diagnosed with nearsightedness, farsightedness, or even astigmatism, contact lenses are a great choice to help you see clearly. Contacts offer a full field of focused vision wherever you look. Because they move with your eyes, they allow you track moving objects with sharp and clear and peripheral vision.

  • They’re great for sports and the outdoors

    Contacts offer a clear, wide field of vision, so that you can keep your eye on the ball, no matter where it is.

  • They provide visual comfort like never before

    Today’s contact lenses are made from a wide range of comfortable, breathable materials, ensuring a great wearing experience.

    Contact lenses won’t get wet in the rain or fog up when you wear a mask. Enjoy the freedom, comfort and convenience of contacts on a night out, when exercising, or just an ordinary day at the office.

What to Expect at Your Contact Lens Exam & Fitting in Lakeshore

  • Eye doctor consultation

    During your contact lens exam, your eye doctor will ask you about your medical history and discuss any lifestyle or health considerations you may have. Do you have astigmatism or dry eye syndrome? Seeking colored contact lenses? Are you over 40 and struggling to read small print in books and menus? No matter the issue, we'll make sure you get the perfect contacts for your needs.

  • Get your contact lenses fitted

    Poorly fitted contacts can cause blurry vision, discomfort and may even damage the cornea. To ensure you have the most comfortable fit possible, your eye doctor will take measurements and run tests to find the right contact lens for you.

  • Receive your trial pair of contact lenses

    Once your eye doctor has determined the optimal lenses for your needs and eyes, they will often offer you a trial pair. Once you’re satisfied with the comfort and clarity of vision these contacts provide, you can buy as many contact lenses as you need for ultimate comfort and clear vision.

My first visit was awesome! I found the perfect, more personal, convenient optometry office. I final... l decided to opt out of the larger, chained optometry offices. The front staff were welcoming and friendly. Dr. Fulghum totally AWESOME!!! He made my day with his humorous and charming personality!

Dr. Fulghum and his staff have taken care of our family's vision needs for many, many years and has ... always provided us with the very best care. Always concerned about our vision needs as the years went by. His referrals have also been top notch whenever additional specialty treatments were needed. We have always felt that our care and treatments have been the very best available. Most medical appointments are not the friendliest experiences we have, but this is not the case here. Always greeted with a smile and pleasant atmosphere. Thanks for all your hard work!

He is a very good person and a caring man. He always makes the visits fun and he shows an interest i... n you and your family. Okay Paul I wrote what you asked me to now when do I get paid? I’m just kidding on the last part but I told him I was going to put that in when I wrote his review to keep him humble. All kidding aside he’s a great doctor and an even better man.

I've been seeing Dr. Fulghum for over 30 years, starting with my recovery from major eye trauma and ... surgery. For over 3 decades Dr. Fulghum and his office have been excellent in their service and friendly in every interaction with me. Dr. Fulghum genuinely cares about his patients and their vision. I cannot recommend him more highly to anyone who is looking for an optometrist. He is a great optometrist!

I have been very pleased. Dr. Fulghum listens to your concerns, asks about your vision needs, and ta... kes the time individually with each patient. Very small office, only the one doctor and a few staff, but very accommodating.

Wife and I needed glasses and went here because of the reviews. I was extremely happy I did as the ... Dr and all his staff are amazing, professional and courteous. They did an incredible job with my progressive lenses and everything fit perfect the first time.

I needed to get a piece of metal removed from my eye. The Dr. did an excellent job. My normal ophtha... lmologist was not in on Friday and he took me in as a new patient. I had a very pleasant visit.

Lovely staff! Great relaxing place. Dr. Fulghum is awesome. Scheduled a visit in under 24 hours, had... little to no wait. Very comfortable place. Is now my go to for all eye care.

I liked the experience I had at this doctors office one to two years ago. I had purchased my first p... air of bi-focal lenses and boy were they much needed. I do not wear glasses often so I must say I've worn these maybe 20 times since I've owned them. The only problem I have is the left side of the frame broke loose at the hinge. I am very careful with my glasses and always keep them in a case when not in use. This should never have broken. I tried to solder the two parts together but no luck.

Contact Lens FAQs

Can children wear contact lenses?

Yes. Contact lenses can be an excellent vision correction option for children. There’s no specific age recommendation for children to start wearing contacts. Rather, parents should assess when their child is mature enough to properly care for them. Proper storage, cleaning and hygiene when inserting and taking out contact lenses are all essential for successful contact lens wear.

Can I wear contact lenses if I have astigmatism?

Yes. Toric lenses are a specific type of contact lens specially designed to address issues connected to astigmatism. In most cases, those with astigmatism can wear their choice of soft contact lenses, including monthly and daily disposables.

Are contact lenses comfortable?

Yes. Original hard contact lenses used to be quite difficult to adapt to. However, thanks to technological advancement, today's contacts are more breathable and comfortable than ever before. In most cases, soft contact lenses are easy to adapt to, even from the very start.

Why might daily disposable lenses be right for me?

Daily disposable lenses are a good choice for those who enjoy the convenience of throwing out used contacts each night, and inserting a new pair in the morning. This saves money, since there is no need for contact lens solution or a case to keep the lenses in. It also ensures that no debris has accumulated on the lenses overtime, since you insert a new one every day.

Why might monthly-wear contact lenses be right for me?

Monthly-wear lenses are great for those responsible enough to take good care of their lenses according to their eye doctor’s instructions. They tend to be made of sturdier material than daily-wear lenses, meaning they don’t tear as easily. The material also lets in more oxygen to the eye, preventing serious complications that can harm your long-term eye health. They are also more eco-friendly (think one lens per month vs. thirty) and are less expensive up-front.
