What Are Scleral Lenses?
Scleral lenses are a larger type of contact lenses that are custom fit to the patient's eye, making them perfect for addressing issues with conditions such as Keratoconus and other diseases that cause an abnormal corneal shape. The unique design or corneal lenses leads to two main benefits over traditional contact lenses (both hard and soft).
- Unparalleled comfort
- Super sharp vision
What Are My Contact Lens Options?
At , our eye care team can fit you with either soft lenses or hard, rigid gas permeable (GP) lenses, depending on your particular needs. Soft lenses tend to be more popular for a number of reasons, including:
- Breathability and comfort: Because of the material they're mae of, soft contacts are flexible and breathable, making them comfortable for long periods of wearing time.
- Quick adaptation period: It takes only a few seconds for soft lenses to settle onto your eye and be comfortable, no matter how long it's been since you last wore them. This makes it easier to switch back and forth between glasses and contacts.
- Can address many common vision issues: Soft lenses can address an array of common refractive errors, including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and presbyopia.

The right pair of contacts can provide crystal-clear vision and wider peripheral vision than can be achieved with eyeglasses of any shape or size. Whether participating in sports or spending time outside, you won’t need to deal with sweat causing your glasses to slip down your nose.
Eye Exams for Contact Lenses are not the same as routine eye exams. During the contact lens exam, we'll get a full picture of your lifestyle, take measurements of your eyes and perform essential testing to make sure contact lenses are the right fit for you, determine your prescription, and see what kind of contacts will give you the clearest, most comfortable vision.
Our eye care office offers a variety of contact lenses to fit all budgets and lifestyles. Here are some of the most popular soft disposable lenses we offer:
These soft lenses are thrown away at the end of each day of wear, and a fresh pair is put in each morning. One major advantage of dailies is that they don't require any care or maintenance, saving you money on disinfectants and cleaning solutions. Because dailies are replaced each day, there are also sanitary advantages, as there is never any build-up of germs or protein, like with other lens types that are worn for longer.
Daily disposables are ideal for people with a busy schedule who need an ultra-convenient option for vision correction, sports players, allergy sufferers, and people with dry eye.
Bi-weekly and Monthly Disposable
These types are worn every day for two weeks to a month and then discarded. You wear them daily, clean and store them overnight. If you wear contacts five or more days per week, these disposable lenses may be the most cost-effective solution.
Bifocal and multifocal contact lenses are ideal for people with presbyopia. Patients in their 40's and 50's who don’t like the look, feel or inconvenience of reading glasses may enjoy these contacts, as are a much more discreet alternative to multifocal glasses.
For nearsighted children, multifocal contact lenses are a proven method of myopia control that can slow down the progression of myopia, and significantly lower your child's risk of developing potentially sight-threatening eye diseases later in life.
Bifocal and multifocal lenses are available in contact lenses in both soft and rigid varieties.
“I can’t wear soft contacts; I have astigmatism.” This once-true statement is now simply a myth. Toric lenses are the perfect lens for patients with astigmatism.
Gas Permeable (GP) Contact Lenses are contact lenses that are made of more rigid materials. While not quite as well known as soft lenses, GP lenses do offer some advantages over them, including crisper vision and increased durability.
Our optometrists in Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach will assess the reason that you are experiencing dry eye symptoms and recommend a contact lens that will provide comfort and excellent vision.
In most cases, our optometrists will advise patients to consider soft contact lenses with superior water retention and air flow, or Scleral lenses with a vaulted design and liquid reservoir.
In order to give you the best contact lens fit, we start with a thorough eye exam takes into account your lifestyle needs and the shape and health of your eye. Depending on the type of lenses you need, you may even be able to try a pair of trial lenses on the same day, and even go home with a few samples before making a final decision.
Shortly after your initial exam, you'll be asked to come in for a follow up so that we can make any necessary changes in fit or materials and make final decisions about what contacts will work best for you. We teach all our patients proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Then we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.
These are custom lenses that are considered the "gold-standard' for patients with keratoconus, corneal diseases, high astigmatism, severe dry eye.
