Contact Lenses from Our Ophthalmologist in Gardena CA
Eye glasses used to be the only vision correction available. Today, however, it's a different story. Although many people still enjoy wearing glasses, other like to supplement those glasses with contact lenses for more high-impact activities, while still others prefer the "invisible" correction afforded by contacts. Here at Century eye Care, our ophthalmologist in Gardena, CA, can figure out exactly what kind of contact lenses will best suit your preferences and vision issues.
What a Contact Lens Exam Can Tell Us
Contact lenses present more complexities than eyeglasses when it comes to fitting, since the lenses must conform exactly to the corneas of your unique eyes. For this reason, we always perform a contact lens exam on top of the standard vision exam, which is still necessary for obtaining your corrective prescription. This exam permits us to take detailed measurements of your eyes so that we can ensure the most exact fit possible. At the same time, this exam lets us evaluate any other factors that might influence your choice of contact lenses. Conditions such as dry eye syndrome, keratoconus (an extreme irregularity of corneal contours), astigmatism, GPC (an inflammatory reaction to protein debris on the lenses), and unusually complicated prescriptions may rule out the use of standard soft contacts. We also need to determine whether you prefer extended-use lenses or single-use lenses.
Contact Lenses for Every Need and Challenge
Even if your contact lens needs present some interesting challenges, you can still get the comfortable, accurate vision correction you want at Century Eye Care. Dr. Aghai can offer a number of different contact lens options. For instance, in addition to regular single-vision contacts, we can provide multifocal contacts suitable for treating presbyopia, toric contacts to correct astigmatism, and gas-permeable contacts that can correct even the strongest prescriptions. You may also benefit from contacts optimized to minimize the effects of dry eye, such as hydrogel lenses. Dry eye and keratoconus sufferers may opt for scleral contact lenses that span the entire diameter of the corneas. We can even fit you with ortho-k lenses that reshape your corneas overnight, allow you to see clearly all day long without wearing contacts or glasses at all.
