Extended Wear Contact Lenses


An eye care provider for more than 20 years, Gary Heiting, OD, joined All About Vision in 2007 and is now senior editor.

Dr. Heiting’s clinical experience has included positions at Ophthalmic Surgeons & Physicians, Ltd., in Tempe, Arizona; Park Nicollet Medical Center in Minneapolis; and Eau Claire LASIK in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
