Contact Lens Exams

Contact Lens Image

Contact lenses offer freedom from glasses and can be worn full or part-time.  They are excellent for working out and going out.  They are a responsibility and are not for everyone - they require extra care.  After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, our Doctors will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, speak with our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.

Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, our Doctor measures what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and/or presbyopia) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Hercules optometrist, call 510-724-3937 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, our Doctor work with you to determine which contact lens material and design re best for your visual needs and lifestyle. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. . . replaced daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens is best for you. Specialized contact lenses, such as multifocal contact lenses and astigmatism-correcting lenses are also available.  Call us at 510-724-3937 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.

Cosmetic Lenses

Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage any color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Cosmetic lenses are also available to transform your eye color. Call us at 510-724-3937 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
