At Bayview Optical, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Livonia. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Gerald Blaize will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, speak with our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.

Contact Lenses

When choosing contact lenses, comfort and performance are what you should expect. At Bayview Optical, our optometrist, optician, and eye doctor are experts at selecting and fitting the most technologically advanced contact lenses available today. Prescribing the healthiest contact lens for your lifestyle is our standard of care.

It used to be that contact lenses were uncomfortable and difficult to take care of, but new technology has changed everything. There are several choices in two week and daily disposables. There are toric contacts for astigmatism and bifocal contacts for presbyopia. New silicone hydrogel contact lenses breathe much better than the old technology. With the new lenses your eyes will be comfortable all day. Most people are so comfortable that they can’t feel their lenses at all.

Bayview Optical has the technology, and Livonia and Farmington optometrist Dr. Blaize is the one who is best qualified to fit them. He is the preferred provider in the area for both Acuvue and Bausch and Lomb contact lenses. With close to 20 years experience, this eye doctor is highly educated in the art of fitting the newest products available anywhere.


Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Blaize determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Livonia optometrist, call (248) 482-2020 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Blaize works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at (248) 482-2020 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.

Cosmetic Lenses

Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage any color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Cosmetic lenses are also available to transform your eye color. Call us at (248) 482-2020 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
