RGP Contact Lens

Gas permeable lenses are rigid contact lenses that promote excellent eye health. They don’t contain water; therefore, they resist protein deposits and are far less likely to cause eye infections, unlike soft contact lenses. RGPs last longer and are easier to handle than soft lenses. RGPs can also help patients with corneal irregularities and nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Myopia Control

Did you know that it is estimated that 50% of the US population will be nearsighted by the year 2050?. Does your prescription get worse each and every year? Although glasses and regular soft contact lenses do correct myopia, they do not slow it from getting worse. Although myopia is genetic, it has become an epidemic. Possible thoughts of why include increased use of digital devices and not wearing the appropriate eye protection while using these digital devices. High myopia has shown to increase the risk of retinal tears, retinal detachments, glaucoma, and maculopathy. So what if my nearsighted prescription continues to get worse? Dr. Alva is well trained in the controlling myopia progression. Some Myopia control managements include, atropine drops, special soft contact lenses, and Ortho-K or CRT contact lens.

Orthokeratology

Have you ever wanted to wake up one morning and see clearly without glasses or contacts? What if you do not qualify for LASIK or wish not to have LASIK surgery but still get similar results?

Orthokeratology may be for you. This is not a surgical treatment. Ortho-K corrects nearsightedness and astigmatism by corneal reshaping while you sleep.  Orthokeratology is reversible and temporary without risk of surgery, which is unlike LASIK or PRK. Orthokeratology utilizes special types of contact lens that change the shape of your cornea. Specific prescription and shaping is most imperative. Dr. Alva is certified to fit Ortho-K lenses and have fit Ortho-K lenses for years.

Hybrid Contact lenses

Hybrid lenses are special designed lenses that combine a RGP lens in the center surrounded by an outside soft skirt. These lenses can offer the vision benefits of a RGP lens while providing the comfort of a soft lens. Hybrid lenses can be designed for patients with eye disease, such as corneal irregularities, including keratoconus. Hybrid lenses can provide excellent vision for patients without corneal disease but have refractive error, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia.

Scleral Contact Lens

Scleral lenses create the best possible vision in many cases. Scleral lenses are a large diameter of RGP that vault over the cornea. In this way, scleral lenses replace the cornea with a smooth tear layer, creating a new optical surface. Scleral lenses are versatile and can be worn by anyone. Originally developed for particular patients with irregular corneas, these lenses are now used for superior vision by all. Scleral lenses provide superior vision for those with Keratoconus, Pellucid Marginal Degeneration, Post-refractive surgery complication (LASIK, PRK, RK, AK, etc.), Post-Intacs, Post-Corneal Transplant, Corneal Scarring, and Dry Eye.  Dr. Alva is certified to fit Scleral contact lenses and has fit Scleral lenses for years. Anyone who has felt that vision has never been as good as they wish through their glasses should ask Dr. Alva about Scleral lenses.

Cosmetic and Colored Contact Lens

Ever wished you could change your eye color?  Although they can be fun, colored contact lenses are medical devices and require a prescription, just like clear soft contact lenses. Ask us today about color contacts.

Color Vision Lens and Filters

Many of you may not know this, but our very own Dr. Alva is color deficient. Also know as color blindness, color deficiency is an optical condition that causes confusion in one of more of the primary colors. Color blindness affects roughly 8% of males and 0.5% of females. If you suffer from a color deficiency that affects your ability to function on a day-to-day basis, we may have a solution. You may require specific filters that can be built-in to lenses that will change your world (of color).

This means that there is no specific underlying cause for the Glaucoma like inflammation, trauma, or a severe cataract. It also means that the drainage angle where fluid is drained from the inside of the eye into the bloodstream is n...
