Get Clear Contact Lens Vision
Your eyes deserve better than contact lenses dancing around the surface of your eye or slipping out. If your lenses are a poor fit, it impacts your vision and comfort.
Exams and fittings can help you find a contact lens that feels right for long-term wear. If you’re experiencing discomfort, dry eyes, or other symptoms, your optometrist can work with you to alleviate symptoms and protect your eyes.
Contact lens exams assess your vision and your eye health. These comprehensive exams are integral—whether you’re a contact lens newbie or an experienced wearer.
See More with Your Best Fit
A contact lens fitting considers your prescription and lifestyle to find what works best for you. For example, do you wear contacts every day or occasionally? Are you using contacts to correct vision or manage an eye condition?
You wouldn’t wear shoes 2 sizes too small or 2 left shoes. Sometimes you need a unique contact lens fit to find that Cinderella-perfect fit.
Pacific Pier Optometry offers a diverse selection of contact lens types and brands. We’re here to help you find the option that works best for your eyes and vision needs.
Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses
Rigid gas permeable (RGB) contacts are almost the opposite of soft or disposable contact lenses. RGB or hard contact lenses typically offer sharper vision but can take longer to adapt to because they lack flexibility. Hard contact lenses are more durable for more extended wear.
The opposite of hard lenses, soft contact lenses are flexible. Generally considered the most comfortable option, particularly for new contact wearers. Soft lenses are available for a variety of vision needs with multiple wearing options, such as daily disposable, biweekly, or monthly.
Hybrid contact lenses feature a rigid gas permeable (hard) center and a soft outer skirt, giving the wearer the best of both worlds. Hybrid lenses offer more clarity, like hard contact lenses, but are more comfortable, like soft contact lenses.
Scleral contact lenses vault over the cornea, rather than resting on it. The shape can help keep the contact in place, improve moisture, and provide a more comfortable fit for some wearers.
Multifocal contact lenses feature more than one prescription. One type of multifocal lens is a bifocal contact lens. It’s a 2-in-one, where the lens is divided into either segments or zones.
For example, a bifocal lens might have a segment for myopia (nearsightedness) and a second segment for presbyopia, allowing the wearer to improve distance vision and near-vision without changing contacts.
