Contact lens wear can improve the quality of your life. With today's advance technology, contact lenses have become much more comfortable and safer. Our office has the most modern equipment available for providing contact lens care, even for those with astigmatism. Eye health, physiology, and vision are carefully analyzed during examination. All contact lenses materials and designs are evaluated to determine which types of contact lens will be best for you and your life styles.

Color contact lenses have also become very popular. They give options to "fashion up" your eye color.

For those who wear bifocal glasses: no need to wear them anymore when the next generation of contact lenses has arrived: Multifocal contact. Multifocals can offer a significant improvement in your quality of life. In addition to cosmetic appeal, mulitfocal contact lenses are an enormous convenience. Instead of having to carry around reading glasses, plano sunglasses, bifocal sunglasses, etc., you can have functional vision everywhere with just contact lenses and a pair of sunglasses.

Come in for a professional fitting and walk out with contacts the same day!


Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Le 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 optometrist, call 510-832-0908 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Le 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 510-832-0908 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 510-832-0908 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
