Contact Lens Exams

Contact Lens Image

At San Dimas Optometry, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in San Dimas. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Richard Garratt 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.

Reasons to consider contact lenses

  • Contact lenses move with your eye, allow a natural field of view, have no frames to obstruct your vision and greatly reduce distortions. 

  • They do not fog up, like glasses, nor do they get splattered by mud or rain.

  • Contact lenses do not get in the way of your activities.

Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Garratt determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our San Dimas optometrist, call (909) 599-1100 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Garratt works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at (909) 599-1100 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 (909) 599-1100 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
