Contact lenses

Contact Lenses

Although glasses are a simple, popular solution for correcting vision problems, they are also fragile and can limit your field of vision.

Contact lenses provided by our La Jolla, CA, practice can help you achieve clear focus without the limitations of eyeglasses.

Contact Lenses  Offer Unique Benefits 

Unlimited Field of Vision

With eyeglasses, your field of vision is limited to your lenses, so many eyeglass wearers experience poor peripheral vision. Contact lenses offer a full, uninterrupted range of vision.

Ideal for an Active Lifestyle 

Glasses are impractical for certain activities such as contact sports because they can easily break or get smudged. Meanwhile, contact lenses let you engage in sports and other activities without worrying about damaging your corrective eyewear.

Show Off Your Natural Features 

While eyeglass lenses and frames can hide your features, contacts allow you to look like yourself. They can also make it easier to wear the clothes you want without worrying about matching them to your frames.

Candidates for Contacts

Thanks to the many advancements in contact lenses in recent years, we can now offer contacts to a greater number of patients, including many who previously were not candidates. Even if you have astigmatism, suffer from chronic dry eyes, or need bifocal lenses, we can find an option that will work for you. However, some patients may be precluded from contacts. For example, if you suffer from chronic eye infections or have severe seasonal allergies, contacts may not be right for you. If you are not a candidate for contacts, we can help find another solution to help you experience improved focus.

What to Expect during Your Lens Fitting

If you currently wear contacts, we perform annual fittings to account for any changes in your eyes that could make your contacts uncomfortable. To fit you for new contact lenses, we will take measurements of both eyes to determine the proper diameter, curvature, and degree of correction necessary. These precise measurements will ensure your contacts fit comfortably while correcting your vision and protecting your eyes.

Our Contact Lens Options

Depending on the information we gather during your exam, we can recommend:

Soft Lenses

Our soft lens options include disposable, continuous wear, toric, progressive, and cosmetic lenses:

  • Disposable lens options range from daily to monthly wear before the lenses must be replaced.
  • Continuous wear lenses improve the oxygen flow to the eyes, allowing patients to wear the lenses without the need to remove them each night.
  • Toric lenses are designed for patients with astigmatism. 
  • Progressive lenses correct presbyopia to eliminate the need for reading glasses or bifocals.
  • Cosmetic or colored lenses can change the color of your eyes. 

Hard Lenses

While soft lenses are far more popular, many patients prefer hard lenses. They are durable and offer improved oxygen flow to the eye. Hard lenses are appropriate for patients with astigmatism, those concerned with eye infections, and those who require bifocal or multifocal lenses. 

To fit you for new contact lenses, we will take measurements of both eyes to determine the proper diameter, curvature, and degree of correction you need.
