Whether you’re curious about wearing contact lenses for the first time, a parent preparing looking to build confidence in their child, or ready to resupply on contact lenses, Monji Optometry carries a wide selection of contact lens options to cater to your visual needs.
Contact lens technology has changed considerably over the last few years. Many patients have chosen to wear daily disposable contact lenses as their ideal solution since there’s zero maintenance, a perfect pair every day, and less risk for eye infection. Presbyopic patients now can wear multifocal contact lenses to see near, intermediate, and far distances without suffering from irritation, dryness, or discomfort. Other forms of contact lenses include colored lenses, major brands of daily, weekly or monthly disposables, or conventional (vial) lenses.
A good contact lens fit starts with a thorough eye exam by Dr. Monji and Dr. Ichiuji to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and to rule out any pre-existing conditions that could interfere with contact lens wear.
We will determine the best fitting lens based on your lifestyle needs, the shape and health of your eye. In most cases, you'll have the opportunity to try lenses on the same day as your exam. You can even go home with a few samples before making a final decision.
We follow up the initial fitting and then make any necessary changes in fit or materials to get you the best possible fit. We teach all our patients proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Then we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.
- Is proper contact lens care a daunting task for you? Then dailies contact lenses could be just for you! They are also great for sensitive patients who suffer eye dryness, and who don’t have the time maintain them. It's also great for new moms to feel great and look their best.
- A routine exam won’t provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear, and to generate your contact lens Rx.
- If you need correction for presbyopia but dislike the idea of bifocal eyeglasses, you have many contact lens options.
- These rigid lenses aren’t as popular or well-known as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision and high oxygen permeability.
- Challenges such as astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes needn’t be a barrier to contact lens wear, but they do require more time and patience.
- We carry all of the top contact lens brands!
- “I can’t wear soft contacts; I have astigmatism.” This once-true statement is now simply a myth.
- According to all eye doctors, it’s not safe to wear contacts when diving into a pool or riding the waves in the ocean because water is a natural breeding ground for microorganisms and bacteria.
- Although your astigmatism may prevent you from wearing ordinary contact lenses, today there are numerous lens and treatment options available to you, such as scleral or hybrid lenses.
- A hybrid lens provides clear vision that's not disrupted by astigmatism or corneal irregularity while matching the same comfort and ease as any soft lens.
- If you are suffering from blurred or distorted vision, increased sensitivity to light and glare, you may have Keratoconus, an eye condition involving the cornea, the clear window at the front of the eye, thinning and warping into a cone-like bulge. Monji Optometry can help find the right treatment for you as we specialize in scleral lenses & keratoconus, to ensure top care & comfort.
