When you come to our East Williamsburg optical store, General Vision Express/Lens Lab, you will be happy to learn how easy it is to be fitted for and to purchase contact lenses.

During your exam, your eyes will be examined so that the proper contact lens vision prescription can be determined. Your optometrist will then take appropriate measurements of your eye so that your contact lenses will fit your eyes to a tee. Our exams are performed using the most modern technology and the most old-fashioned personal attention and care.
Getting contact lenses in your East Williamsburg optical store, General Vision Express/Lens Lab, is very convenient, as you will receive your contact lens prescription, and then get your contact lenses under the same roof. Your optometrist will be able to determine, and to advise you about what type of lenses will work best for you. There are often many choices available, and your optometrist can help you narrow down your choice to the perfect one.
At your East Williamsburg optical store, General Vision Express/Lens Lab, you will learn about the different kinds of contact lenses available. Today, soft contact lenses are most commonly prescribed and worn because they are so comfortable. Recent advancements in contacts have made soft lenses available for multi focal, for astigmatism, and for overnight wear. Other options for soft lenses include: daily wear up to 18 hours; disposable one day wear; and lenses that change the color of your eyes. Hard contact lenses, also known as rigid or gas-permeable lenses, may offer you sharper vision and are wonderful at correcting severe nearsightedness or astigmatism. However, hard contacts can be more difficult to get used to than soft lenses. When you visit us at General Vision Express / Lens Lab we will be able to provide you with the exact lens that is specific to your own individual needs. We offer all types and brands of contact lenses at our practice. Furthermore, we will be sure that your lenses are correctly fitted based on your prescription, eye shape, and specific needs. Come visit us today and get the perfect lenses for your eyes. You will be excited by all you can clearly see around you!
