What are contact lenses?

Contact lenses are clear, thick plastic discs that fit over your eye to improve your vision. The lenses sit on the film of tears that cover your cornea to correct refractive errors like:

  • Nearsightedness (myopia)
  • Far-sightedness (hyperopia)
  • Age-related vision changes (presbyopia)
  • Distorted vision (astigmatism)

Edwin Y. Endo, OD & Associates offers a wide range of contact lens brands and types to correct your vision and address issues that affect your eyesight.

Which contact lenses are available?

Edwin Y. Endo, OD & Associates fit all types of contact lenses, including:

Soft lenses

Soft lenses are made of soft, flexible plastic. They are a comfortable option for many people and are available for daily wear or extended wear.

Gas permeable (GP) lenses

Gas permeable lenses are made of a rigid plastic material that allows oxygen to flow through to your eye. GP lenses provide sharper vision for those with astigmatism and last longer than soft lenses.

Duette® lenses

Duette contact lenses provide clearer, sharper vision than traditional contacts. Duette lenses work well even for those with astigmatism.

Scleral lenses

Scleral lenses are gas permeable lenses that stretch over your cornea and the white part of your eye (scleral). These lenses can correct issues like corneal scars and keratoconus.

Which contact lenses are right for me?

To determine which contact lenses are right for you, the Edwin Y. Endo, OD & Associates team performs a comprehensive eye exam to assess your visual acuity. Contact lens exams are different from other types of eye exams and help the team choose the right lens type for you.

To correct nearsightedness and farsightedness with a high level of comfort, the team may recommend soft lenses. If you have astigmatism or need a high prescription, you may be a candidate for gas permeable or Duette lenses.

Scleral lenses are good for those with keratoconus or other issues that develop because of an irregularly shaped cornea. The lenses progressively change the shape of your cornea to improve your vision.

The team offers in-office appointments to ensure your contact lenses fit comfortably and are the right prescription. They also provide guidance to help you care for your lenses and reduce your risk for eye infections and other complications.
