Learn About Contact Lens Options
Contact lenses come as both soft lenses and hard, rigid gas permeable (GP) types. By far, soft lenses are the most popular, due to a number of reasons:
- Soft contacts are flexible and porous, making them breathable and healthy for long periods of wearing time.
- Water content varies from 20% - 85%, and they absorb tears. Altogether, these details make them even more soft and pliable.
- Almost no adaptation period; soft lenses are comfortable within seconds of the first insertion. Also, that means you can easily switch back and forth between glasses and lenses all the time.
- Appropriate for almost all vision conditions, including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and presbyopia
- Range of wearing schedules is available to suit all lifestyles and budgets
Eye Exams for Contact Lenses are different than a routine eye exam. A routine eye exam won’t provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear, and to generate your contact lens Rx. During the contact lens exam, our optometrists will discuss your lifestyle to asses the best contact lens for your needs.
Contact Lenses – Comfortable & Convenient Vision
As nearsightedness is becoming increasingly common around the globe, contact lenses are increasing in popularity. People of all ages with myopia are in the market for new eyewear, and due to the development of advanced engineering and new materials, the contact lens industry is booming!
Contacts provide crisp visual acuity and wide peripheral vision, with no bothersome glasses in the way. When playing sports or spending time outside on a hot day, you won’t need to deal with frames slipping down your sweaty nose. Many people who have worn eyeglasses for years praise the comfortable wearing experience and sharp sight given by contacts.
A wide range of contacts is available to fit almost all vision prescriptions and eye conditions. Even if you suffer from dry eye, use a computer for hours every day, or lead a lifestyle that is constantly on the go, our Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach optometrists can match you with the contacts to fit your needs and lifestyle.
Everyone has a unique daily schedule and lifestyle, and you need your contact lenses to match your life.
These soft lenses are made to worn for only one day and then thrown away. You insert a new, fresh pair every morning. Dailies do not require any care or maintenance, so you save money on disinfectants and cleaning solutions. Daily disposables are ideal for people with a busy schedule who need an ultra-convenient option for vision correction. Also, sports players, allergy sufferers, and people with dry eye love the enhanced comfort of dailies, because they are thrown out before any irritating debris or allergens have time to accumulate on the lens surface.
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 the ideal solutions for people with presbyopia and children with myopia. Fortunately for patients in their 40's and 50's who don’t like the look, feel or inconvenience of reading glasses, there is another option. For nearsighted children, multifocal contact lenses for myopia control slow down the progression of myopia severely mitigating the risks that your child would face later in life. Bifocal and multifocal lenses are also available in contact lenses in both soft and rigid varieties.
Toric Contact Lenses for Astigmatism“ 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 rigid lenses which are not as popular or well-known as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision, and high oxygen permeability.
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.
We offer a wide selection of contact lenses including disposable soft contact, bifocal/multifocal, toric, and colored lenses. Whether you wear daily, weekly or monthly disposables, or conventional (vial) lenses, check out our selection of lenses that fit your needs.
A good contact lens fit starts with a thorough eye exam to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and rule out any pre-existing conditions that could interfere with contact lens wear.
We will determine the best fitting lens based on your lifestyle needs and the shape and health of your eye. In most cases, you'll have the opportunity to try lenses on the same day as your exam. You can even go home with a few samples before making a final decision.
We follow up the initial fitting and then make any necessary changes in fit or materials to get you the best possible fit. 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.
