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.

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 Sharpstown

  • 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.

Alway a great experience! I experienced an emergency during the week and was not able to go into the... office. I reached out to the office on Saturday, October 8th only to find nothing available. In speaking with Amelia she held me on the phone until she was able to see if a cancellation or short break in the schedule. There was an opening and headed to the office 45 minutes away. Upon my arrival Amelia greeted me with all smiles and told her she was like a breath of fresh air. Shortly after arriving Emily took me back and took great care of me ensuring all my concerns were addressed. Dr. Chin came in to resolve immediately by checking the eyes. Told it was allergies and ordered eye drop for allergy/infection. Thank you guys for being my eye care team since early 80’s.

I have been a patient of a Dr Chin since the late 70's. Starting with Dr Allen H Chin who gave me ex... cellent care when I wore contact lenses. Later my care was assumed by Dr Allen J Chin, his son. I give each of them high marks for the care of my eyes.

Dr. Chin is a great doctor and taking care of the patient! Once my daughter had eyes infection in th... e morning after wearing OK Lens at night. That day unfortunately the doctor's office is closed. I called Dr. Chin's office and explained the situation, Dr. Chin called me and asked us to his office for eyes examination, I was so much released after knowing my daughter's eyes infection is not serious. Thank you so much Dr. Chin!

Best eye doctor I’ve ever been to. Went in with an emergency after getting something stuck in my e... ye and took me right away with no hesitation. Very friendly nurses and doctors! I’m recommending all of my family to come here if they ever need to visit an eye doctor.

I have some complicated eyes. Most doctors gave up on me after trying contacts more than 3-4 times t... o get the right fit, but no Dr. Chin! I thank God I found Dr Chin Sinior !!! I had been going to see him for about 10 years now. I can't say enough good things about him and the people that works there. I drive a long way to go see him. I would not trust my eyes to another Doctor. I highly recommend this practice especially if you have Keratoconus or any other cornea problems. Esteban.

Dr. Chin and his staff were fantastic! I visited his office on a recommendation from my insurance pr... ovider and the proximity of his office to my home. Initially I was rather hesitant even with the great patient reviews because I'd been seeing my previous optometrist of 15+ years. Within minutes of arriving, Dr. Chin and his staff put any and all concerns I may have had at ease. During the pre-exam testing, the staff member that assisted me went above and beyond. She immediately opened up to me regarding herself, which allowed me to more easily provide insights from my own medical and family history. When she handed me off to Dr. Chin, the level of empathy and commitment that he displayed to me was every bit as amazing as hers. Overall, their eagerness to engage in dialogue while offering advice and feedback made me feel like a valued patient in a way that I have never really felt before. I am talkative and inquisitive person by nature, and at no point did they make me feel rushed or as if I was a burden. Dr. Chin even took the extra time to explain the nuances of my vision, and why his findings varied slightly from my previous prescription. He also provided key details regarding the specialty contacts that I've been wearing for 12+ years, that I had never known before (they have an aligned fit)! Further, I highly recommend the optional $30 proactive screening if you can afford it. Upon reviewing the data from my screening, Dr. Chin immediately noticed minor scar tissue that we'll need to monitor, but thankfully it isn't currently a threat to my eye sight. It is great piece of mind to know that as of right now I have nothing to worry about, and we'll continue to monitor the issue with future exams. Not only that, but also let let me know of a $50 rebate on my contacts that will more than offset the cost of the proactive screening. I will certainly be back for my annual screening with Dr. Chin and his staff having full faith in their expertise, level of attentiveness, and care for my well being. Overall, the dialogue and level of engagement during the exam made me feel like I had part ownership of my eyesight wellness for the first time in my 41 years. I've been wearing glasses since I was 8 years old, and I have never "enjoyed" an optometrist exam and visit... until now. Thanks Dr. Chin and Associates! PS - Filling out the paperwork online pre-exam via Zocdoc was a godsend. I wish more health practitioners provided the option.

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.
