Contact Lenses Offered by our Chino Hills and San Dimas Optometrists
If you've never enjoyed the feel of eyeglasses on your ears and nose, you don't think eyeglasses suit your looks, or you just want a more practical alternative for sports and other active situations, you have good reason to consider contact lenses. Contacts are a discreet, durable, convenience means of vision correction -- but they must be fitted to your specific eyes, visual challenges, and everyday needs. That's why you'll want to come to our San Dimas or Chino Hills optometrists at Hofacre Optometric Corporation for precise fittings and a wide range of contact lens options.
Choosing Contact Lenses
Today's contact lenses a far cry from the first ground-glass models pioneered in the 19th Century. Space-age materials have led to the development of soft, flexible lenses that "breathe" well and allow for considerable comfort. You can wear contacts with confidence in situations that might pose dangers to eyeglasses. If you prefer not to advertise that you have a vision problem, contacts provide invisible everyday correction.
But getting optimal results from a new pair of contact lenses isn't as simple as making a blind purchase. Contacts must be fitted to your eye's exact measurements because they rest directly on your eyes. You also need to think about what type of contacts will suit you best. Different products are designed to be worn for different lengths of time, from disposable one-time lenses to extended-wear contacts. Your vision prescription and ocular health may also require you to consider alternatives to ordinary soft contacts. Examples of such factors include presbyopia, severe astigmatism (or other strong prescriptions), and other corneal abnormalities, dry eye, and irritations such as giant papillary conjunctivitis.
Contact Lens Fitting at Our Chino Hills and San Dimas Optometry Center
The first step in your contact lens journey is a comprehensive eye exam and vision test at our optometry center. Once this exam yields your corrective lens prescription, you'll need an additional evaluation called a contact lens exam. In this exam, our optometrist weighs your vision issues, health, eye function, and how your preferred lifestyle might impact the type of lenses you require. We can then provide a variety of contact lens options. In addition to single-vision soft contacts, we also offer RGP (rigid gas permeable) contacts in a wide range of styles. Our optometrist can fit you with multifocal lenses to correct for presbyopia, toric contacts for astigmatism, and moisture-retaining lenses that won't aggravate dry eye.
