Make an Appointment

Contact lens fitting is a self-referral. Although UAMS does not require a referral for this clinic, some insurance providers require a referral for specialty care. Please check with your insurance prior to requesting an appointment.

To request an appointment, you can do so by calling 501-686-5822.

For your first appointment, please bring any recent glasses or contact prescriptions you have, a photo ID and your insurance card. If you currently wear contact lens, please wear those or bring them with you.
