The goal of Laser eye surgery is to fully replace eyeglasses or contact lenses by correcting a patient’s farsightedness, nearsightedness, and/or astigmatism. However, custom contact lenses or cosmetic contact lenses might still be desired.
Colored Contact Lenses
Colored contacts in Orange County are quite popular. We offer custom colored contact lenses that are non-prescription and can change the way you look and feel.
Colored contacts are also available in all prescriptions, including correction for astigmatism.
Patients can upload their picture online and try different colors in order to choose the color they like most.
Color contacts are a great option to temporarily change the color of the eyes.
If you want to know more about contact lenses, and have a one-on-one consultation with our Orange County Lasik surgeon, Alexandra Chebil, M.D., give us a call or contact us online.

Contact Lenses after Lasik
Quite Rare, but if a patient’s high refractive error was not fully corrected after Lasik, and re-treatment is not recommended, the patient might choose the option of wearing custom contact lenses.
Another reason someone may choose lenses is the fact that their vision was fully corrected but they’ve aged and now experience Presbyopia. A Custom contact lens can be fitted specifically for the patient on one eye instead of having to deal with reading glasses.
Lenses have been around for years, but they’ve advanced by becoming much smaller, and much more comfortable and better fit for each patient.
They function much like regular eye glasses focusing light so that objects appear much clearer.
At our Orange County Lasik Center, we focus on providing the best care for our patients, that also means providing options.
If Lasik eye surgery is not an option or recommended for a particular patient, we will provide them with all other methods available to help them see better, and enjoy an active lifestyle.
Are Contact Lenses Safe?
They are considered a medical device, approved and regulated by the FDA. They are very safe, if you follow proper care instructions. Contact lenses can damage your eyes if they are worn too long, not cleaned properly, or replaced as often as your doctor recommends.
