Contact Lens Exams

Contact Lens Image

At Lawrence Marshall OD, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in San Pedro. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Sandra Chavez will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, speak with our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.

Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Chavez determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our San Pedro optometrist, call 310-832-2020 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Chavez works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at 310-832-2020 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.

Cosmetic Lenses

Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage any color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Cosmetic lenses are also available to transform your eye color. Call us at 310-832-2020 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I love the service and the store setup. Very inviting & the staff is amazing!"
    Brenda A.
  • "I live way across town but would get my yearly visit and frames from here. This staff is the best hands down. He treats his patients with the respect and very informative when it comes to the health of your eyes. Adrianna at the front desk is a pleasant young lady. She goes out of her way to make sure the glasses fit and will adjust them if need be. Not to mention warming up the frames so they don't feel cold. Love this place and will definitely be continuing going back there."
