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.

Family EyeCare - Snow & Durkin 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.

    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 in Wallhaven

  • 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.

Great office! Everyone has been nothing but kind and helpful! I’m always greeted when I arrive and... the office staff has been nothing but professional and kind. Dr. Durkin is truly one of the best in my opinion. He always takes time to listen to me and he doesn’t rush me. I would highly recommend Dr. Durkin and the office staff!

Great selection of eyeglasses with the family atmosphere. I love my new glasses. Shelly was helpful ... at selecting what would look good on me and I have received so many compliments. Shelly offered high definition licenses which were more than what I usually have purchased but I am amazed at how well I can see now. Thanks again we will be back!

I see Dr. Durkin, and he is very kind, knowledgeable and does a great job with prescribing glasses a... nd contacts and checking in on my vision and eye health. He takes time to talk to you about your eyes, which I think is really important. On a more superficial note, they have a huge selection of glasses too! It's a great office with great people.

I received my annual vision exam and filled a glasses prescription in frames that I purchased elsewh... ere at Snow and Durkin Optical. The eye exam was conducted by Dr. Snow, and he was thorough, friendly, and I felt confident in his prescription. The opticians were easy to work with, had great style suggestions, and adjusted the frames well for me. I recommend Snow and Durkin for your vision care business.

I've been coming to Dr Durkin for nearly 30 years and he has taken great care of me and my visual ne... eds. I am so glad I stumbled upon him all those years ago!

Dr. Snow always rocks! He's thorough and explains everything along the path of my eye examination, m... aking sure I understand all the options, and status/health of my eyesight! Hess is a rock star in her own realm in the optical dept. She walked me through all of the options of purchasing my frames and lenses, and also helped me understand the many ways that I could get additional protection for my eyes. She was thoughtful, courteous and understanding of my wants and needs. at the end of the day, I got Crizal protection on top of transitions while driving in my car...(Something I have wanted for years). I'm glad she was up to snuff on her products and helped me get the perfect pair of glasses! My only request would be if it was possible to carry Oliver peoples frames.....(hint hint)

I recently moved back to the area and needed a new optometrist. I called and spoke with a very frien... dly person over the phone to set up my appointment. She mailed me new patient paperwork so I didn't have to sit in the office and fill it out on appointment day. When it came time for my visit, I was greeted in a professional manner. From the receptionist, to the assistant/tech, to the doctor, I had a very enjoyable experience. Dr. Durkin made me feel at home and I was extremely pleased with the entire visit. I strongly recommend Dr. Durkin, Dr. Snow, and the entire office. A+

I have been a patient of Dr. Snow's for over twenty years and he is a wonderful eye Dr. He is thorou... gh, patient and provides an in depth explanation of what is going on with my vision. Both my adult children who live out of town will make their appointment in conjunction with a visit back home. My husband is also a patient of Dr. Snow's. The staff is also very courteous and professional and they do learn to know the patients. Having an appointment is like making a visit home.

We have been seeing Dr. Durkin for over 20 years, and our children are also his patients. We apprec... iate the office staff and doctors for their prompt and professional help with appointments, choosing glasses, clarity in letting us know the issues with vision, as well as being great with our kids. We would highly recommend this office.

Dr. Snow always goes above and beyond the services of a DO. Recommends the best specialists when th... e eye problems require treatment outside his area of expertise. Even alerted my husband to a physical problem that might have gone unnoticed, had he not expressed his concern.
- Jul. 05, 2016
During the over 10 years that I have been a patient, I have received excellent treatment. Both the d... octors and staff are very pleasant and professional. I wouldn't hesitate to refer them to my friends.

I have been a patient of Dr. Rod Snow since 1994. He and his staff have earned my loyalty with excel... lent and friendly service, beyond what I have come to expect from most practices. I trust my eyes with Rod, and I believe that says it all.

I have been going to Dr. Durkin for several years. He has taken great care of me and my eyesight. He... is personable and I love seeing him and catching up. Not only is he a great optometrist but also a good friend. Dr. Durkin has seen me through some bad times and was there to help. Thank you Dr. Durkin so much! I hope anyone reading this realizes what a great guy you are!

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.
