Contact Lenses

Contact lenses correct your vision and easy to wear. Choosing the contact lenses that are right for you depends on your vision and comfort.

Soft Contact Lenses

The most frequently prescribed due to tremendous comfort. Soft contacts are now available for patients with astigmatism and can even change the color of your eyes.
Soft contact lenses include:

  • Daily Wear – can be worn up to 12 hours but must be removed and cleaned at night
  • Extended Wear – can be worn on a more flexible schedule than daily wear
  • Disposable – meant to be worn for a short time and then discarded
  • Color Changing – can change the color of your eyes even if vision correction is not needed

Hard Contact Lenses

Also called rigid or gas-permeable lenses, hard contact lenses offer sharper vision and can correct nearsightedness or astigmatism. However, hard contact lenses take longer to adjust to than soft contact lenses.

At Forest Optical, we offer all types and brands of contact lenses, specifically fitted for each individual’s needs. It is very important that your lenses are fitted correctly based on your prescription, eye shape and specific needs.


Glasses are an optical instrument formed by a pair of lenses attached to a frame. Our instruments allow the optometrist to measure a specific patient based on the precise correction of each eye. Glasses are also a fashion accessory that you can choose depending on your face shape and fashion trending. At Forest Optical, we are committed to bringing our patients the best connection between function and comfort.


We offer complete selections of the best brands in the industry.

There is nothing more important than protecting your eyes from UV rays. In Forest Optical, we are committed to bringing our patients the best selection of sunglasses with lens treatments to reduce glare.
