Contact Lenses

Schedule a Fitting for Contact Lenses in Chula Vista

The tiny little contact lens has dramatically changed the world of vision repair. When used according to directions, the corrective disc floats on the surface of the eye. As the related technology advances, the people who wear them find the discs to be more comfortable and more effective at improving vision than they were in the past. At Dr. Evans and Dr. Carter Optometry, the people of Chula Vista, CA and surrounding areas can benefit from an exam with an optometrist and a new pair of contact lenses.

Most Common Options and Their Benefits

Hard and soft contact lenses
There are three common types of contacts, including:
  • Soft Contacts: These contacts are created from absorbent hydrogels. As they absorb water naturally, the lenses stay soft and comfortable.
  • Hybrids: This variety of lens has a rigid gas permeable central zone surrounded by the absorbent hydrogels.
  • Rigid Gas Permeable: These hard discs are made from a mix of fluorosilicone and acrylate. They provide sharper vision than their softer counterparts, but still present discomfort for some people.
In the past, some people were not able to benefit from this corrective option, but today, many of those same people have set their glasses aside for the last time, exchanging them for soft contacts.
Once you have determined the most appropriate structural makeup for your eyes, you’ll still have some important decisions to make. This is because there are prescription lenses developed for specific kinds of eye problems. A few examples include:
  • Disposable lenses
  • Bifocal soft lenses
  • Extended wear
  • Toric contacts for astigmatism
Many people in Chula Vista, El Cajon, and La Mesa have used a combination of glasses and contacts for the best vision.
