Contact lenses
In addition to traditional contacts, we offer the latest material lenses, including daily wear, extended wear and hydrogel/hydroclear.

Specialty contact lenses:
  • SynergEyes ® hybrid lenses combine a gas-permeable center with a soft outer exterior for crisp, clear vision and all-day comfort
  • Colored contact lenses alter the color of your eyes while providing clear vision

Contact lens refill
Our Opticians are happy to help with contact lens ordering. Because we require prepayment for all contact lens orders and are unable to obtain credit card information here, please call us directly at (217) 902-2020. If you prefer to pay in person, you may stop by the department at Carle Outpatient Services at The Fields in southwest Champaign. We accept cash, check and credit card. Contact lens prescriptions are generally good for two years. If your prescription has expired, you will need to complete an eye exam with your optometrist. To schedule an appointment or for other questions, please call our main department line at (217) 902-3937.
