Bruce Vaneske, Registered Contact Lens Technician, has over 35 years of experience in fitting contact lenses. Bruce specializes in all types of contact lens fits. He is well versed in a wide variety of lenses and will find what works best for you, your prescription and your lifestyle. Bruce is a Master Optician, board certified by the American Board of Opticianry and the National Contact Lens Examiners. He is also a fellow of the Contact Lens Society of America. Bruce continues to learn about new lens technology to provide you with the most current, healthy options for your eyes. Eye Essentials uses top quality products to provide you with the best vision possible.

Nebraska & Iowa both have state regulations that require a contact lens patient to have specific contact lens services that are not performed during a regular eye examination by your ophthalmologist or optometrist. These services sometimes require separate, additional visits and several trials of lenses. A fitting fee is required at the beginning of the contact lens fitting process and a contact lens prescription will then be released at the completion of the process. There are several different variables (satisfaction with wearing, additional measurements taken, dryness, change in prescription or lifestyle etc.) that will dictate the cost of your contact lenses and fitting which Bruce would be more than happy to discuss with you. You will find that our prices on contact lenses are very competitive and experience in fitting is among the best in the industry.
