Specialized Lenses


If you are working in an office setting and spending a lot of time reading or using a computer, we offer specialty lenses that provide more comfort for extended periods of reading and computing. Examples of some occupational lenses that we offer include Zeiss Room Distance (RD), Shamir Office, and Essilor Computer.

Contact Lenses

Voorthuis Opticians and Dr. Voorthuis, O.D. and Associates sell a variety of contact lenses at competitive prices. We offer free shipping and rebates on one-year supply orders of most disposable soft lenses, and efficient in-store delivery on smaller orders of contacts.

The optometrists at Voorthuis use your carefully determined eyeglass prescription together with any current or past contact lens experience you may have as a basis for your new contact lens prescription. We have experience fitting both soft and rigid gas permeable lenses in the following categories: spherical, toric (astigmatic), multifocal, multifocal toric, and monovision. We have hundreds of contact lens samples in our office so that we can choose the healthiest material and best modality (one day, two week, one month, or quarterly replacement) for you.

If your prescription or contact lens needs falls outside of our in-office trial stock, we can order you what you will need. We will work with you to sample different lenses and contact lens care regimens to get you the most functional and comfortable contact lens solution.

If you are new to contact lenses, Voorthuis optometrists will teach you how to insert, remove, and care for your contact lenses so that you feel 100% confident with the process before you leave the office with your new lenses.
