Specialty Contact Lenses

Specialty Contact Lenses

Please call or email the office to place an order for contacts. Contact lens prescriptions are usually valid for one year. If your prescription is expired, please schedule a contact lens exam.

Contact lenses are a great option (but not a total replacement) for eyeglass wearers. With the myriad of contact lenses on the market, Dr. Manalo examines and fits patients with the best lenses available. Depending on the unique characteristics of your eyes, there is a contact lens made for you.

Keep in mind contact lenses require your eyes to be healthy at all times, otherwise contact lenses may not feel right and can lead to complications and in some cases, infection and vision loss. Special eye conditions, such as keratoconus, corneal ectasia and severe dry eye, may require the use of specialty contact lenses. Dr. Manalo can determine and fit the appropriate lens when indicated. Different types of specialty contact lenses include multifocal lenses, hybrid lenses and scleral lenses.

Contact lens options include:

  • Soft contact lenses
  • Daily disposable contact lenses
  • Colored contact lenses
  • Contact lenses for astigmatism (toric)
  • Gas permeable (GP) contact lenses
  • Bifocal/multifocal contact lenses
  • Monovision contact lenses
  • Scleral lenses
  • Hybrid lenses

An annual exam is recommended to ensure the eyes remain healthy and able to continue contact lens wear. Even though your eyes and vision may seem normal, oftentimes conditions may go undetected if a thorough exam is not performed.
