Contact lenses can be an excellent alternative to eyeglasses and corrective surgery. And there are so many different choices that there’s a style and fit for nearly every eye, lifestyle, or meed.

If you’re considering contact lenses, we can help! At Stanislaus Optometric Center, Inc., we provide thorough contact lens exams and fittings designed to help you achieve clear, comfortable vision.

The Contact Lens Exam

A contact lens exam is very similar to a routine comprehensive eye exam. But because contacts sit directly on the eye, you’ll need a few extra tests to determine what type of lenses will work best for you.

In addition to the usual tests, like a visual acuity test, a refraction test, and an intraocular pressure test, we’ll assess your corneal health and measure your cornea to find the right fit.

Using corneal topography, we map the surface and curvature of your cornea. It’s a non-invasive, computerized test that can reveal possible issues with the surface of your eye, such as scarring or astigmatism.

These conditions don’t disqualify you from wearing contacts. Information gained from corneal topography allows us to recommend contact lenses that suit your specific needs.

The Contact Lens Fitting

The fitting is part of the comprehensive contact lens exam. It involves a discussion about your lifestyle and ocular needs to determine what style of contact lenses might work best for you.

Part of the fitting includes an education session designed to show you how to wear and care for your contact lenses, including inserting and removing them. You’ll then be sent home with a trial pair of lenses and a follow-up appointment will be scheduled. Our goal is to ensure your contact lenses are fitting comfortably and helping you reach your vision goals.

Contact Lens Types

If you have astigmatism, keratoconus, or dry eyes, there’s a contact lens for that! Contact lens technology has progressed so much that there are lenses for nearly anyone.

We carry various styles of contact lenses from all the top brands, including:

Rigid Gas-Permeable Lenses

Rigid gas-permeable contact lenses (RGPs) are made of rigid plastic that allows oxygen through the lens to the cornea.

RGP lenses are more durable, resistant to build up, and generally provide a clearer, crisper vision than soft contact lenses. However, they’re not as initially comfortable to wear as soft contacts and may take a bit longer to get used to.

Scleral Lenses

Scleral lenses are large-diameter gas-permeable contact lenses designed to vault over the cornea and sit on the whites of the eyes.

The larger size of scleral lenses creates a tear reservoir between the cornea and the lens, making these lenses ideal for providing relief from ocular conditions like keratoconus and chronic dry eyes.

Toric Lenses

Toric lenses are a type of soft contact lens used to improve vision for those with astigmatism. They’re weighted to prevent them from rotating.

Multifocal & Bifocal Lenses

Multifocal and bifocal contact lenses contain multiple prescriptions and are designed to correct presbyopia. They’re a great option for those who require prescriptions for multiple distances, like driving and reading.

Keratoconus Lenses

Keratoconus is a condition that causes your cornea to thin and bulge into a cone shape. This abnormal shape can cause blurred vision, glare, and light sensitivity. There are a few different contact lens options for those with keratoconus, including RGP and scleral lenses. Our optometric team can give you the best advice on what will work best for you during your next exam.

Ortho-K Lenses

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) lenses are a type of RGP lens designed to reshape the cornea overnight to correct myopia. Designed to be removed in the morning, you can enjoy clear vision during the day without needing glasses.
