Do your glasses get fogged up and splattered in the rain?

Are your eyeglasses getting in the way of playing sports?

Want to reinvent your look?

If you’ve been diagnosed with nearsightedness, farsightedness, or even astigmatism, contact lenses are a great choice to help you see clearly. Contacts offer a full field of focused vision wherever you look. Because they move with your eyes, they allow you track moving objects with sharp and clear and peripheral vision.

Foothills Vision and Eye Care will help you find the perfect contact lenses for your needs and lifestyle.

How Contacts Can Help You See & Look Your Best

  • They’re great for sports and the outdoors

    Contacts offer a clear, wide field of vision, so that you can keep your eye on the ball, no matter where it is.

  • They provide visual comfort like never before

    Today’s contact lenses are made from a wide range of comfortable, breathable materials, ensuring a great wearing experience.

  • You can choose from a range of options

    From monthly-wear contacts, daily disposables and multifocal/bifocal to colored lenses and toric lenses, contacts can fit every need and lifestyle!

  • They’re perfect for every situation

    Contact lenses won’t get wet in the rain or fog up when you wear a mask. Enjoy the freedom, comfort and convenience of contacts on a night out, when exercising, or just an ordinary day at the office.

No matter the kind of contact lenses you’re seeking, whether monthly, weekly and daily lenses for single vision, astigmatism and multifocal correction—we've got you covered! 

So, what are you waiting for?

What to Expect at Your Contact Lens Exam & Fitting

  • Eye doctor consultation

    During your contact lens exam, your eye doctor will ask you about your medical history and discuss any lifestyle or health considerations you may have. Do you have astigmatism or dry eye syndrome? Seeking colored contact lenses? Are you over 40 and struggling to read small print in books and menus? No matter the issue, we'll make sure you get the perfect contacts for your needs.

  • Get your contact lenses fitted

    Poorly fitted contacts can cause blurry vision, discomfort and may even damage the cornea. To ensure you have the most comfortable fit possible, your eye doctor will take measurements and run tests to find the right contact lens for you.

  • Receive your trial pair of contact lenses

    Once your eye doctor has determined the optimal lenses for your needs and eyes, they will often offer you a trial pair. Once you’re satisfied with the comfort and clarity of vision these contacts provide, you can buy as many contact lenses as you need for ultimate comfort and clear vision.

I have been a patient of Dr. Skrdla for many years. I ALWAYS get exceptional, professional, friendl... y service every visit.
- Feb. 25, 2023
Dr. Skrdla is truly the BEST! He’s extremely knowledgeable -not just about everything related to e... ye and vision health but also so much more. I’ve been his patient for 15+ years and I trust him more than any other doctor I’ve seen in that time. I have some complex medical issues (mostly unrelated to my eyes/vision) that he somehow knows more about than most of the specialists I see who are supposed to be experts in those issues… I wish he was a primary care physician. Everyone I’ve ever recommended him to have become longtime patients of his and all feel the same way. Make an appointment with him and you’ll see :-).

Dr. Haugen has seen me since I was really little. I had complex issues with my eyes and I always fel... t seen at his office. Highly recommend for parents of bespectacled littles 🙂 I have a recent great story though- I live in Chicago but had seen him for a check up while I was in Colorado for a while last winter. But when I switched insurance and needed another pair of glasses, I found an in-network clinic who required a re-exam to give me new glasses. They ended up giving me the wrong prescription! One eye far sighted and the other nearsighted- I think they accidentally typed a plus sign. I bought glasses through a third party because ironically that clinic was too expensive, and of course when I received them they were totally wrong. I called them and they basically brushed me off, and the third party also couldn’t do anything because they had followed the prescription I handed them. So I decided to try and call Dr. Haugen (whose problem this definitely wasn’t!) just a bit before his office closed. He answered himself, sent the correct prescription, and got it fixed for me- when I was all the way in Chicago!

Contact Lens FAQs

Can children wear contact lenses?

Yes. Contact lenses can be an excellent vision correction option for children. There’s no specific age recommendation for children to start wearing contacts. Rather, parents should assess when their child is mature enough to properly care for them. Proper storage, cleaning and hygiene when inserting and taking out contact lenses are all essential for successful contact lens wear.

Can I wear contact lenses if I have astigmatism?

Yes. Toric lenses are a specific type of contact lens specially designed to address issues connected to astigmatism. In most cases, those with astigmatism can wear their choice of soft contact lenses, including monthly and daily disposables.

Are contact lenses comfortable?

Yes. Original hard contact lenses used to be quite difficult to adapt to. However, thanks to technological advancement, today's contacts are more breathable and comfortable than ever before. In most cases, soft contact lenses are easy to adapt to, even from the very start.

Why might daily disposable lenses be right for me?

Daily disposable lenses are a good choice for those who enjoy the convenience of throwing out used contacts each night, and inserting a new pair in the morning. This saves money, since there is no need for contact lens solution or a case to keep the lenses in. It also ensures that no debris has accumulated on the lenses overtime, since you insert a new one every day.

Why might monthly-wear contact lenses be right for me?

Monthly-wear lenses are great for those responsible enough to take good care of their lenses according to their eye doctor’s instructions. They tend to be made of sturdier material than daily-wear lenses, meaning they don’t tear as easily. The material also lets in more oxygen to the eye, preventing serious complications that can harm your long-term eye health. They are also more eco-friendly (think one lens per month vs. thirty) and are less expensive up-front.
