Are Contacts a Good Fit for Me?

Contact lenses are a perfect solution if you live an active lifestyle or simply want to see clearly without relying on glasses, and we have a wide range of contacts great for a variety of prescriptions and needs. If you don’t want to worry about misplacing your glasses or cleaning them to see clearly, contacts offer convenience and versatility, while letting you play with your look. If you’ve been told in the past that you have “hard-to-fit” eyes, such as those patients with astigmatism, don’t worry – we have options that will give you sharp, comfortable vision!

Our Specialty Lens Options

We’re proud to offer a range of specialty lens options for all kinds of prescriptions, conditions, and unique eye shapes. Our team is skilled at fitting contacts comfortably no matter what your eyes need, so ask about how our specialty lens options can enhance your vision today!

Scleral Lenses

We offer scleral lenses that can help protect your eyes if you’ve been diagnosed with ocular surface disease, have corneal irregularities, or another condition, like keratoconus or dry eye. Scleral lenses arc over the front of your eyes to keep them shielded, and act as a tear reservoir helping them stay hydrated. Our scleral lenses will have your sight at its best while keeping your eyes healthy and safe.

Multifocal lens at La Paz

Multi-Focal Lenses

If you have presbyopia (age-related farsightedness), use contact lenses but require reading glasses, or have myopia (nearsightedness), we have multi-focal contact lens options for you. Multi-focals provide several focusing powers in a single lens, for improved near and far vision without needing multiple pairs of glasses.

Toric Lenses

With toric contact lenses, astigmatism can be corrected just as easily as with glasses! These lenses are specially designed for astigmatism, and feature a unique shape with markers to properly adjust to your cornea. We have toric lenses available for all prescription strengths to help you achieve clear sight while prioritizing your comfort.

Hybrid Lenses

Hybrid contact lenses are a unique solution if you’re an especially active, athletic person. They’re engineered with a rigid central section surrounded by a soft zone, providing the sharp vision associated with rigid gas-permeable lenses, with the comfort of soft lenses. Our team will help you find the best hybrid lenses to get you through any high-intensity activities your day brings with ease!

Myopia Management Lenses

If your child has myopia, our management plans protect their eyes in the long run while slowing myopia’s progression. These include Paragon CRT® Ortho-K lenses that gently reshape your child’s corneas overnight, resulting in clearer vision the next day. We also carry MiSight® 1 Day and multi-focal lenses that reduce eye strain — a core cause of myopia — which pair well with our strain-limiting atropine eye drops. In addition to reducing your child’s need for stronger prescriptions over time, myopia management lenses can prevent them from developing more serious eye diseases later in life.

What to Expect at Your Contact Lens Exam

During your thorough contact lens exam, we put your comfort first and pay special attention to the condition of your eyes by using advanced technology like optical coherence tomography and corneal topography to check their general health. Our exams ensure you’re a good candidate for contact lenses and check for front-of-eye conditions like keratoconus that may require specialty lenses. We’ll then generate your customized prescription, help you choose your lenses, and make sure they fit perfectly!

What to Expect at Your Contact Lens Fitting

Fitting your contact lenses accurately is essential for your comfort and eye health. Poorly fitting contact lenses are not only uncomfortable, but they can also cause blurry vision and damage to your eyes’ surface. As contact lenses come in a variety of shapes, curvatures, and diameters, this technology process helps us narrow down which lenses work for you and streamline your fitting process. With our specialized tools, we get precise measurements of your eyes so we can fit your lenses to match their exact shape.

What to Expect from Your
Take-Home Trial Period

After you’re through with the fitting process and have received prescription contacts that work for your unique eyes, we’ll give you a trial pair to start. Use this time to see if the lenses work for you – if they’re comfortable and if you’re seeing clearly – before you commit to ordering a longer-term supply. If they work well, we’ll order you the supply that’s right for you, and  continue to check in with you to make sure you’re completely satisfied. And if you think you may need adjustments, we’ll refit you with either a different style, brand, or power until we they’re perfect!

LaPaz Optometric is a wonderful practice, both for regular eye exams, glasses, and contact lenses, and also for more complex well eye visits. I've had two eye related health issues in the last 18 months, and both times the team here was able to quickly fit me in, do a thorough exam, and leave me treatment and guidance that made me confident in the health of my eyes. Plus, everyone is so friendly, I don't ever have to sit around and wait, the equipment is very modern and confidence inspiring, and all three doctors I've met are very knowledgeable, great with patients, and just plain nice people! Highly recommend!

Yesterday I had my routine eye exam. Not really sure where to start with this review. The crew was amazing, professional and kind. They took their time in running all the tests and explained everything in details. After completing all the tests, Dr. Walsh took her time with me to address all the concerns, prescribe the best lenses for my glasses and contacts. They by far the most professional optometry center I’ve ever dealt with. As a patient never been that happy. Simply if you have vision challenges. That’s the place you want to be to get your treatment.So glad that I found my optometry center.The most highly recommended vision center. If there was more then 5 stars I would have definitely gave it to the team.That’s the place you should go to if you want to walk out with a smile on your face. They magically know how to draw a fat one on your face.

I've been coming to this optometry establishment for years, and have always had nothing short of a positive experience. They are now under new management, but the service provided is still exceptional.I booked my annual eye exam, and was going in feeling comfortable. On our call, Jody had asked me to make sure to bring my mask and to fill out some paperwork via email prior to my appointment, to reduce contact and time spent in the office. Upon arrival, I was asked to call the front desk to assure that I would be socially-distanced and everything was cleaned before entering. Once entered, Jody took my temperature and then walked me through some eye tests. She made sure to wipe all of the equipment down before use, which was very assuring. I then walked into my exam, and there was a sign on the chair before sitting down stating that it had been cleaned. I had an eye exam with Dr. Hsieh, and was extremely happy with her professionalism and knowledge. We ended up trying out some new contacts! James checked the schedule and had me book a 1-week follow-up appointment to make sure that they were to my satisfaction before ordering them.I came back a week later with no problems, and ended up purchasing a year supply of contacts (which were shipped to my house promptly - in less than a week).Overall, they are one business that is following COVID guidelines well, and I will continue to give them my service!

I went in for my annual exam. I expected to be greeted by a friendly staff and I certainly was! I was told Dr Cooperman himself retired which was no problem for me as I have never met him and was always examined by another doctor on staff. I must say that this crew working there is very friendly and professional. My appointment was on time, and I felt very well taken care of. I felt like they took the time to make sure I was getting the best service. The entire staff seems very knowledgeable and efficient. I would certainly recommend this office to anyone!

Husband has an urgent need to have his eye looked at, no appointment… the office scheduled him for next day, but asked him to stick around for a bit as they worked on getting him in sooner. He was seen later in the day and given a very thorough examination and testing. They went above and beyond for him.In addition, we have experienced the staff to be very professional, patient and kind when calling to change or make appointments. Also when checking in to be seen.The office is very clean

I give two thumbs up to the dedicated office staff. I would recommend the Brookhurst Optometric Center to anyone who needs immediate vision care. I was a previous patient and hadn’t been seen for 1.5 year. I took a chance a walked in hoping to be seen.I was greeted by Jacob who was warm and welcoming. I explained my vision problem and he asked if I wanted to be seen today. I said “yes”. Jacob checked my insurance and explained me the tests that would be performed. He was so kind and helpful. I was seen 30 minutes later and had a full eye exam and was fitted for contacts. I was so thrilled. I was seen by Dr Chi. Excellent Optometrist. He was very patience with me and explained and answered every question I had. He even assisted me by plucking sn ingrown hair from my eyelid. Wow! I checked out with the girls who were delightful . I had the best experience. The entire office staff was friendly and very helpful. Stop by and see them! You”ll be happy you did.

I had a good experience at this office for my eye exam. I've been having a little trouble seeing my phone with my glasses and Dr. Chi gave me a solution on my new ones. The staff were also very helpful since I walking in the door to me choosinga new frame. They treats me like a family instead of another patient. Not having to dilate this year because of the tech they have might be one of the best part.
