Are you thinking about getting contact lenses for the first time? Or have you been thinking that it is time to get a new contact lens prescription? If so, you will want to come visit us at Alta Loma Optometric where you can not only get a comprehensive contact lens exam and fitting, but where you can purchase new contact lenses in Rancho Cucamonga.
At our practice, Alta Loma Optometric, we have a new owner and optometrist. He is Dr. Michael Morton. Dr. Morton works to diagnose, manage and treat many ocular diseases. Our other optometrists who work with patients, including those who need contact lens exams are Dr. Nancy Qwan and Dr. Patricia Wai. When patients want to get new contact lenses in Rancho Cucamonga, they come to us for a comprehensive contact lens exam. During the first part of this exam our optometrist will examine our patient’s eyes to make sure that their eyes are healthy enough to wear contacts. Our eye doctor will screen for many different diseases and disorders. Our optometrist will also measure the amount of refraction correction needed to make sure that the lens prescription is accurate.
Finally, when our patient needs contact lenses in Rancho Cucamonga our optometrist will take measurements of the eye to make sure the contacts are the right size and have the right curvature. This will ensure that they will safely and comfortably sit on the eye. Our optometrist will also discuss with you the different types of contacts that will provide you with the best vision. Some patients will still benefit the most from wearing hard lenses. These lenses are not as easy to get used to, but they may offer better vision for some patients. Other lenses are soft lenses. These soft contacts are very easy to get used to and comfortable to wear. They come with several different types of options including: disposable contacts – to be worn once and then thrown out; daily wear lenses that are worn all day and then removed at night for cleaning and to rest the eye; extended wear lenses – to be worn for many days at a time before they are removed for cleaning; and color changing lenses that will allow the wear to have it appear that the color of their eyes have changed. These colored lenses can have vision correction included, or not. If you would like to see one of our optometrists for a contact lens exam, contact our office.
