Vision Correction Lenses

Contact lenses can be a great alternative to prescription glasses and are worn to correct refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism

During your contact lens exam, your eye doctor will check your visual acuity to determine how well you see letters and symbols from a distance. Your doctor will also review your lifestyle needs and preferences to determine what lenses will benefit you. 

At Solano EyeCare, we value the patient experience, and our contact lens services are personalized to our patient’s unique visual needs.

Types of Contact Lenses

At Solano EyeCare, we offer a variety of specialty contact lenses for our patient’s unique visual needs. 

Contact lenses fall under 2 main categories, soft contact lenses, and rigid gas permeable (RGP). Different specialty lenses fall under these main categories and work to solve various vision issues.

Scleral contact lenses can be a great option for patients who are unable to wear contacts due to conditions such as dry eye disease and keratoconus.

Scleral lenses are larger than traditional contacts and rest on the sclera or white of your eyes. These lenses allow for space over your cornea’s surface for extra breathability.

Ortho-k contact lenses are a great option for most patients with mild to moderate myopia.

Ortho-k lenses are designed to reduce your dependence on contact lenses and glasses. Ortho-k lenses are inserted at night and removed in the morning, allowing you to see clearly throughout the day.

Toric contact lenses can help correct astigmatism. These lenses are available in both the soft and RGP variety. Toric lenses contain multiple powers, one vertical and the other horizontal. These multiple powers allow the lenses to center correctly on the eye.

Toric lenses may require a more precise fit, and your eye doctor can help find the ideal fit during the fitting process.

Multifocal contact lenses feature a bifocal design with 2 distinct lens powers for near and distant vision. Multifocal lenses help correct presbyopia and can eliminate the need for reading glasses.

These lenses are available in both soft and RGP contact lens options and are designed for daily wear or extended overnight wear.

Hybrid contact lenses have a rigid gas permeable center and are surrounded by a soft outer ring. These lenses focus on correcting refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia

Hybrid contact lenses also address keratoconus, which is an irregular corneal curvature. These lenses can sometimes be more comfortable to wear than traditional RGP lenses.

MiSight myopia control lenses are soft contact lenses that help correct nearsightedness in children—these lenses slow myopia progression in children aged 8 to 12 from the beginning of treatment.

Paragon CRT lenses are a non-surgical treatment for myopia, also known as nearsightedness. CRT lenses are worn overnight while you sleep, where they gently correct the curvature of the cornea. 

The lenses are then removed in the morning so you can enjoy your clear vision throughout the day without worrying about glasses or contact lenses.

The Contact Lens Fitting Process

At Solano EyeCare, we use fitting technology to ensure we provide our patients with a safe and comfortable contact lens fit. 

During the fitting process, your doctor will assess the health of your cornea using a biomicroscope. This process provides a magnified view of your cornea to help determine if you can wear contact lenses. 

Our team at Solano EyeCare also uses corneal topography to help map the surface of the cornea. This imaging technology works like a 3D map and helps find distortions in the curvature of the cornea. 

Corneal topography can assist us in finding what type of contact lens can be worn to improve vision.
