CONTACTS IN HOUSTON, TX

If you need corrective lenses, but you don’t like the thought of wearing glasses, contact lenses are an ideal solution. At Ella Eyes in Houston, Texas, Dr. Ngo and her team work diligently to find a contact lens solution for you, allowing you to see comfortably and clearly.

Here at Ella Eyes, we are dedicated to finding the right type of contacts, even hard-to-fit ones, for our patients.
There are many different eye conditions that require specific kinds of contact lenses, so finding the right kind isn’t always easy. There are lenses designed for certain eye conditions, such as astigmatism, dry eyes, keratoconus, and more. However, we believe that comfort is also very important when it comes to giving you good vision.
Soft contact lenses are typically the best option for most people. They allow the eye to breathe and receive moisture, so they are very helpful for people suffering from dry eye. Soft contact lenses are disposable, so you can change them when needed to keep your eyes healthy.
Rigid gas-permeable lenses are hard contact lenses that provide correction for very poor vision and conditions that cause blurry vision such as astigmatism. The lenses provide very clear vision and can improve vision to almost 20/20. They do not slide on the eye as much as soft lenses. However, they are not as comfortable, so adjusting to them can take a bit of time. They are durable and very good for people who struggle with bad vision.
Toric lenses are designed specifically for people with astigmatism. They come in both hard and soft contact lenses, which has been helpful for many people who have astigmatism but have difficulty wearing hard lenses. They are the preferred contact lenses of people with astigmatism.

Contacts Q&A:

What can contact lenses correct?If you need help with your vision correction — whether it’s to see things off in the distance, up close, or both — contact lenses may be an option that offers the same correction that glasses do, including:● Nearsightedness, or myopia Farsightedness, or hyperopia Astigmatism Presbyopia, which is an age-related condition that affects close vision

Soft contact lenses.These lenses are — as the name suggests — soft, which offers a great deal of comfort to those who use them. The lenses are permeable to oxygen exchange which allows the eye to breathe and receive nutrients through the tear layers.They also come in different versions, such as:● Disposable: daily, weekly, biweekly, or monthly.● Daily wear lenses: need to be removed each night before going to sleep.● Extended-wear lenses: wearable overnight.
Hard contact lenses.These lenses retain their shape because of the rigid materials they’re made of, which help those with moderate to severe astigmatism and myopia.
Dr. Ngo will recommend the best type of contact lenses for you, depending on the health of your eyes, your prescription, and — most importantly — your lifestyle. To that end, the contact lenses that may work for you may be hard or soft contact lenses, or they may even be bifocal contacts.
