The Right Lenses for Your Needs

Contact lenses are not one-size-fits-all. That’s why there are plenty of options when it comes to lenses. If you have a very high prescription or can’t wear traditional lenses, you might need something a little different.

The team at Los Angeles EyeCare Optometry Group has years of experience with contact lenses. We’ll find you the perfect type of lens and the perfect fit for your eyes.

Please book your appointment today to discuss your contact lens options.

Scleral Lenses

Most contact lenses rest on the cornea. If you have an irregularly shaped cornea, have had laser eye surgery, or have corneal scarring, traditional contact lenses might not be comfortable for you. Scleral lenses may be a better option.

Scleral lenses sit over the cornea, without touching it. They have a larger diameter and allow for a fluid reservoir between the cornea and the lens. This means dry eye disease sufferers may be able to tolerate these lenses.

Many people find a properly fitting scleral lens more comfortable than a regular soft contact lens.

Silicone Hydrogel Contact Lenses

Silicone hydrogel contact lenses allow up to 5 times more oxygen to reach the eye than traditional soft contacts.

Any contact lens reduces the amount of oxygen that reaches the eye, at least to some extent. If the cornea receives too little oxygen, it can result in red eyes, blurred vision, and discomfort. It can even make you more susceptible to eye infections.

If you wear contact lenses for most of the day, it’s important that enough oxygen gets to your eyes, so silicone hydrogel lenses may be a good option.

Paragon corneal refractive therapy (CRT) lenses are myopia control lenses worn at night. They correct the curvature of the cornea while your child sleeps. In the morning, the lenses are removed, and the cornea retains its new shape. Your child can go about their daily activities without glasses.

Other options for myopia control lenses are also available.

To learn more about other options for myopia control, please check out our Myopia Control page.

Nowadays, there are so many ways to customize your look. You can dye your hair, change up your wardrobe, and even change your eye color. Contact lenses come in a various colors and can be used to enhance or change your eye color.

Contact lenses are medical devices. If you have good vision and don’t need prescription lenses, it’s still important to get a proper contact lens fitting if you want to wear colored lenses.

Those with astigmatism may need special lenses that correct vision on both the horizontal and vertical axes of your eye. To correct astigmatism, contacts need to sit correctly on the eye because they have different powers in different parts of the lens.

Toric lenses have unique design features, like weighted bottoms, to ensure they stay on the correct spot on the eye, even after you blink. These specialty lenses require a fitting by an experienced optometrist—we can help.

Love Your Lenses

Maybe you’ve been told you can’t wear contact lenses. Or perhaps you already wear contact lenses, but you don’t love them. Either way, we can help you find something that works for your unique eyes. Please contact our office for an evaluation.
