Based on your prescription and individual needs, Dr. Jun will prescribe the most appropriate contact lenses for you:
- Rigid Gas-permeable Lenses - These lenses float in the tear fluid, allowing more oxygen to reach the cornea when you blink.
- Soft Lenses - Made from extremely soft plastic, soft lenses offer the most options, including daily disposable lenses and frequent replacement lenses.
Our optometrists also specialize in fitting lenses for more complicated cases, including patients with post-refractive surgery needs, dry eye, keratoconus, and other high refractive errors. These tough fits require a specialty lens:
- Toric lenses - Correct astigmatism
- Bifocal lenses - Correct both distant and near vision
- Colored lenses - May enhance or change the color of your eyes
- Aphakic lenses - For people who have had cataracts removed without lens implants
- Keratoconic - To correct vision problems caused by keratoconus and other corneal irregularities
- Scleral lenses - Placed over the white of the eye (sclera) - utilizes fluid held between the cornea and the contact lens to correct keratoconus, pellucid's marginal degeneration, refractive surgery, irregular conreas and/or scar tissue, and dry eye
- Post-refractive surgery lenses - To enhance vision after refractive surgery
