Contact Lenses

Are you tired of wearing eyeglasses to see clearly? Contact lenses can free you from glasses and give you sharp, 20/20 vision.

Board-certified optometrist Steven Chander offers advanced contact lenses that can correct a variety of vision issues.

Can contact lenses fitted by Dr. Chander at Primary Eye Care Associates in Chicago improve your vision without the need for glasses?

A Contact Lens Overview

Each lens is easy to put in your eye and can provide crystal clear vision all day without discomfort — no eyeglasses to misplace, break, or constantly clean.

See Clearly Without Eyeglasses

Learn more about why contact lenses are such a popular choice to correct vision issues such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Contact board-certified optometrist Steven Chander at Primary Eye Care Associates in the Garfield Ridge neighborhood of Chicago near Midway airport for a comprehensive eye exam. This is the best way to be fitted with the precise contact lens to give you the sharpest, most vivid vision possible.

Consider Contact Lenses Over Eyeglasses

Many of Dr. Chander's patients go from wearing eyeglasses to contact lenses. Here's why:

More Open Appearance

Some patients don't like to wear eyeglasses, as they cover parts of their face. Contacts offer a more open look.

Reduced Risk of Eye Injury

Many active patients don't like to wear eyeglasses while playing sports. This reduces the risk of a lens shattering and hurting their eyes.

Confidence Boost

Children and teens may feel better about their appearance if they wear contacts instead of eyeglasses.

No Vision Obstruction

Contacts offer a clear field of view. When you wear eyeglasses, the frames can interfere with your vision.

No Fogging or Smudging

Eyeglass lenses can fog up, especially while wearing a mask, or get smudged by your eyelashes.

No Slippage

When you wear eyeglasses, they may constantly slip down your nose. This can be very annoying.

Less Distortion

Since each contact lens rests directly on your cornea, there may be less distortion of vision when compared to eyeglass lenses.

I’ve gone to a few eye doctors around the Midway area and Brighton Park neighborhood and Primary Eye Care is the only one I trust. I had been avoiding contacts for a while due to my astigmatism and they helped me find contacts! Their staff and Dr. Chandler have always been so helpful and kind.

Contact Lens Cost & Financing

Most vision plans cover some portion of your contact lens cost. The price will vary depending on the kind and brand of lens. Contacting our Chicago, IL, practice is the best way to get an exact quote. Dr. Chander offers financing through CareCredit® to make any out-of-pocket costs convenient and manageable.

Are Contact Lenses Right for Me?

If you wear eyeglasses most of the day, you are probably a good candidate. However, conditions like dry eye syndrome, eyelid inflammation, or eye allergies could prevent you from wearing a lens in your eye comfortably. A consultation with Dr. Chander, whether at our high-end practice or done virtually, is a good way to make sure contact lenses will work for you.
