Contact lenses are a suitable alternative to glasses for people who want something more discreet. Like glasses, contact lenses also correct a wide range of refractive errors, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, age-related presbyopia, and astigmatism caused by irregularly shaped corneas.

At Rancho Santa Margarita Optometry, we provide a wide range of contact lenses from some of the most reputable brands in the industry. Our opticians help you choose the best contact lenses in Rancho Santa Margarita, combining comfort and clarity.

Switching Over to Contact Lenses

Some patients find that contact lenses provide clearer and sharper vision than glasses. Others simply prefer contact lenses because they’re discreet and invisible. Whatever your reasons may be, Rancho Santa Margarita Optometry is here to help you make the transition from glasses to contact lenses.

Once you decide you want contact lenses, the first step is to get a contact lens prescription. Our optometrist will run some eye exams and tests to provide the ideal contact lens prescription. We also help you choose the right type of contact lenses for your specific needs, describing the unique qualities and benefits of all your options, such as soft, rigid, toric, multifocal, and specialty lenses.

Our optometrist shows you how to insert, remove, clean, and maintain your contact lenses. Finally, we simplify the contact lens reordering process, making Rancho Santa Margarita Optometry a one-stop destination to address all your contact lens needs and requirements. You can schedule your contact lens fitting individually or with your comprehensive eye exams.

Choosing the Right Contact Lenses

There are various types of contact lenses. You can find ones that are soft, hard, disposable, long-wearing, multifocal, colored, etc. When it comes to choosing the best contact lenses, Rancho Santa Margarita Optometry has experts who will assist you. Your optometrist will recommend the ideal type based on your prescriptions and preferences.

Soft Contact Lenses

Soft contact lenses are made of soft materials that allow oxygen to pass through and reach the cornea. They require minimal maintenance, and they’re comfortable right off the bat.

Rigid/Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses

Rigid contact lenses, also called rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses, are harder contact lenses that provide sharper and clearer vision than soft contact lenses. They’re not immediately comfortable, but you’ll get used to them eventually. 

Multifocal Lenses

Multifocal contact lenses include multiple prescriptions within the same lens. They’re useful when treating multiple refractive errors simultaneously. You may take some time to get the hang of them, but most patients are happy with their lenses.

Toric Lenses

Toric lenses are specially designed in a “donut” shape to treat blurry and distorted vision caused by astigmatism. You can get soft or rigid toric contact lenses.

Fashion Lenses

Fashion lenses are colored contact lenses that change the color of your eyes. You can get fashion contact lenses with or without prescription, but they’re mostly used to provide a cosmetic value.

COVID-19 Update:

Dear Patient,
We are pleased to announce that the California Department of Public Health has given us permission to resume full scope eye care, including preventative care and postponed exams.

At Total Vision Care, the health of our patients, doctors, and associates is our top priority. We are taking precautions to ensure the safety of our community.

Health and safety protocols we are taking:

  • All visits are by appointment to ensure social distancing. This includes picking up of glasses/contact lenses, adjustments on glasses, and ordering new products.
  • Patients are asked to arrive to their appointment alone and notify us from your vehicle once you arrive (a parent/guardian may accompany a minor and a family member/caretaker may assist a senior). Please call the office and someone will greet you at the door.
  • Prior to your entry a team member will take your temperature, provide you with hand sanitizer and ask you a series of questions regarding your health and possible COVID-19 exposure. Our team members are all subject to these same screening protocols.
  • All doctors, associates, and patients must wear masks.
  • Our team sterilizes all equipment and surfaces after every patient and disinfects all frames prior to placing them back on display.

What we ask of patients:

  • If you have any of the following symptoms, you must reschedule your appointment for a future date: Fever, fatigue, cough, shortness of breath, gastro-intestinal symptoms (diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, or stomach pains), recent loss of smell or taste.
  • Please bring a mask which must be worn in our facilities at all times.
  • Your patience in adhering to new safety protocols.
  • Please feel welcome to communicate any questions that you have to your Total Vision Care practice associates.

In addition, we will continue to monitor CDC, WHO, governmental, and optometric associations guidelines and make changes as appropriate to protect our community. Thank you so much for your continued support of our practices. We appreciate your patience throughout this process and for trusting us with your eyecare needs.
