Glasses-Free Vision Correction

Glasses are a popular and reliable way to correct vision, but many people prefer wearing contact lenses. These devices can help you see clearly without frames that may get lost, become damaged, or not match your style.

Ready to see the world through contact lenses? Contact Total Vision Willow Glen, formerly i-Care Optometry, to book your contact lens exam and fitting now.

The Contact Lens Exam

Contact lens exams are similar to regular eye exams, but they usually include a few more steps. We take these steps so we can find effective and comfortable contact lenses for your eyes.

We perform contact lens exams to answer the following questions:

  • How often should you change your lenses? Contact lenses may come in daily disposable or extended wear varieties.
  • What type of contact lens will correct your vision most effectively?
  • Do you have conditions like dry eyes or astigmatism that could make some lenses more practical than others?
  • Do you need specialty lenses for specific vision problems, such as presbyopia?

Contact lens exams also include several measurements, such as:

Your Fitting & Trial Period

When we complete your tests and measurements, we’ll provide you with a set of trial lenses. If these lenses prove comfortable and effective, we’ll help you order a lasting supply and teach you to maintain them properly. You will also most likely need to book several follow-up appointments with us so we can monitor your eyes as they adjust to wearing your new lenses.

Contact Lens Types

Contact lenses come in several different forms, including:

Soft Contact Lenses

Soft contacts are widely considered safe, easy to use, and affordable. They are made from silicone hydrogel, which lets oxygen pass through to keep the eye comfortable. Many varieties of soft contacts exist, ensuring options for people who prefer different lens wear schedules.

Rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses are typically more durable than soft contacts, but some people may find getting used to them challenging. These lenses are made from firm silicone compounds that retain their shape during use, making them helpful for people with corneal irregularities, like astigmatism.

Some contact lenses have unique properties. These lenses include:

  • Toric lenses have different horizontal and vertical prescriptions to correct multiple refractive problems in the same eye and may also help in cases of moderate astigmatism.
  • Multifocal lenses contain a gradient that holds multiple prescriptions and are often used to correct presbyopia.
