Complete Selection & Eye Care for Contact Lenses

There are times when you may prefer contact lenses over eyeglasses for correcting your vision. Not only can eyeglasses get in the way when playing sports, but we also understand that sometimes you want to present your face as it is – with no accessories.

At Midwest Eye Associates, we offer all the eye care services that you need for comfortable contact lenses that grant crystal-clear vision. Our professional optometrists are experts at fitting patients with contacts. We’ll assess the health and shape of your eyes, as well as test your visual acuity, to determine the best lenses for you. Every person is unique, with different visual and lifestyle needs, and we’ll take the time to get to know you personally in order to prescribe the most suitable lenses. We have offices in St. Peters, St. Charles, Wentzville and Creve Coeur, MO, and we offer a wide selection of contact lenses at each convenient location.

Contact Lens Fittings

contact lenses in WentzvilleAfter your initial meeting and contact lens fitting with one of our qualified eye doctors, you’ll be able to try on some lenses. We often permit our patients to take a few samples home to try them out. Once the best pair of contact lenses is prescribed for you, you’ll receive instructions on how to handle them properly. Depending upon your vision condition, a wide variety of contact lenses are available. We have toric, bifocal/multifocal and colored lenses in our supply, all from premium brand-name manufacturers. From daily wear options to weekly or monthly, we’re sure to have a pair that matches your needs.

Contact lenses must be cared for correctly to prevent possible eye health complications. We encourage all of our patients to return for follow-up exams to check on the condition of your lenses and your eyes. A change in the fit or materials may be necessary.

COVID-19 Update

We want to update you on our plan of action related to the COVID-19 virus outbreak. Based on the recommendation from the CDC, we are suspending all routine eye care until they advise otherwise. However, we will be available for urgent and emergent care as needed (ie, eye infections, injuries or sudden onset vision loss or change).

All patients with scheduled visits will be contacted by our staff to reschedule. In order to help the schedule management run smoothly, we ask that you wait to be contacted by our team for rescheduling. We don’t know how long this suspension will last, as the current state of COVID-19 is evolving daily.

For those affected by this schedule suspension, if you are without glasses or contacts, we will work with you individually to keep you supplied with prescriptions. If you need pharmacy prescriptions refilled, please let us know as well.

**Further, for our contact lens patients, we recommend you consider discontinuing contact lens wear if you exhibit flu-like or respiratory illness symptoms, as the eye surface and tears can be a source of exposure and spread to others.**

In addition, we will be available for glasses and contact lens pick up by appointment. Please call the office when you arrive, and a staff member will deliver your purchase directly to your vehicle. On a limited basis, we will provide glasses repairs and adjustments.

We ask that all patients who exhibit flu-like or respiratory illness symptoms, or have had a fever in the last two weeks to refrain from visiting the office until you are symptom-free for two weeks. If you have traveled internationally or to CA, WA or NY in the last 30 days again we ask that you refrain from visiting the office for two weeks.

If an in-person visit proves necessary, we ask that only the patient come into the office unless personal assistance is required. All guests will be asked to remain in your vehicle. One parent or guardian may accompany a minor patient.

In the midst of this uncertainty, we ask for your understanding of these limitations as the health and well being of our team, patients and community is of the utmost importance.

Be well and stay healthy.
