CONTACT LENS


Do you like the way you look without glasses?  Tired of your glasses falling off while playing sports?  Tired of fishing for a pair of reading glasses when reading text messages?  You may be a great candidate for contact lenses!
 

 

 

 

 

Contact lenses are a great option for patients who play sports, wish to avoid wearing glasses, and would like to change their eye color.  Contact lenses don’t get distortions and reflections, steam up in warm spaces or get dirty like a pair of glasses.  They are excellent options for those who engage in water sports, do not interfere with headgear for active sports, allowing one to lead an active lifestyle.

 

 

 

Monovision and multifocal contact lenses are excellent for patients who have difficulty with near tasks such as reading text messages, reading labels at the grocery store, or reading the newspaper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Soft Contact Lenses (SCL):

contactsThis is our most popular type of contact lens.  A SCL is made of a relatively soft and flexible material which drapes over the entire surface of the cornea like a blanket.  Advantages of this type of lens include comfort, scheduled disposability, shorter adaptation time, and the ability to enhance or change eye color.  SCL can be used to correct astigmatism and presbyopia.
 

 

 

Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses (RGP):

These lenses are relatively smaller in size and are less flexible than a soft contact lens. A RGP lens offers high optical quality, superior ocular health, easy care regimen, and durability.  RGP lenses can be used to correct astigmatism and presbyopia.

In addition to standard contact lenses, we offer:

  • Correction for Presbyopia:

    As the eye ages, it slowly loses its ability to focus on objects held at arms length or closer. Patients who are becoming presbyopic may want to consider the use of contact lenses (SCL or RGP) instead of spectacles. There are several management strategies that can be used in the correction of presbyopia.
    Monovision: The most common type of correction for presbyopia which allows one eye focused for distance viewing and the other eye is focused for near viewing.  Monovision lenses are offered as SCL or RGP.
    Multifocal contact lenses: Recent advances in multifocal contact lens designs allow patients to perform distance tasks such as driving and near tasks such as reading text messages using both eyes.  Multifocal lenses are a great way to avoid relying on a pair of reading glasses to see your books, cell phone, tablets or computer screen. Multifocal lenses are offered as a SCL.

  • Keratoconus

    Keratoconus is a condition when the eye is irregular in shape, which may not be completely corrected by glasses or soft contact lenses.  A custom fit lens such as a Scleral Lens is a great way to optimize vision and health of the eye while providing comfort to the patient. Prior to the advent of Scleral Lens, most patients with keratoconus were stuck either getting a corneal transplant surgery or wearing large “Coke-bottle” glasses. With these new Scleral Lens, both vision and comfort are superior to those older, archaic options.

  • Specialty Contact Lenses

    contact-lensesEyes that are difficult to fit due to eye injury, disease or surgeries may not be completely corrected by glasses or contact lenses.  The most common complaint of patients would be lack of comfort and dryness with their contact lens. Thankfully with latest in specialty contact lens technology, the doctors at East West Eye Institute can fit you with the most advanced contact lens designs available in order to optimize vision, comfort and eye health.
