Experience Free & Flexible Vision
Once upon a time, there were 2 kinds of people in the world: those who could and those who couldn’t wear contact lenses.
But no longer!
At North Park Optometry, we carry a variety of traditional and specialty contact lenses so you can enjoy free, flexible vision without sacrificing comfort. Some conditions, like dry eyes or presbyopia, can make wearing regular contact lenses impossible. But we can help.

Your contact lens exam helps us determine the best lenses and prescription for your eyes.
Because contact lenses sit directly on the eye, you’ll need a slightly adjusted prescription from your glasses. We’ll perform a few tests to measure and assess your eyes, evaluate your tear film, and review the surface of your eye using corneal topography.
By understanding your eyes, we can give you personalized recommendations on contact lenses. We’ll be with you every step of the way.
There’s no such thing as a “dumb question,” so don’t hesitate to voice any questions or concerns with us during your appointment.
Specialty Contact Lenses for Every Eye
Scleral contact lenses are mainly designed for patients with dry eyes or keratoconus. These lenses are much bigger than traditional contact lenses. They vault over the surface of the eye, creating a fluid reservoir.
Scleral lenses sit on the sclera (white portion of the eye) and help maintain hydration and the shape of the cornea throughout the day.
Ortho-k contact lenses are a specialty lens used to slow the progression of myopia in younger patients. By correcting vision and providing myopic defocus, these lenses can slow the eye’s growth, preventing it from elongating.
The elongation of the eye results in the worsening of a patient’s myopic prescription, which can lead to sight-threatening conditions. Learn more on our Myopia Control page.
Aspheric contact lenses can provide clearer vision at various angles and reduce distortion for those with less spherical corneas or eyes. Because aspheric lenses can correct vision at different angles, these lenses may be a better option for patients with higher prescriptions.
Toric contact lenses are designed for patients with astigmatism.
These lenses are made to fit your eye, so the shape can be different from a regular contact lens. This shape provides a unique focusing power that can correct vision errors caused by astigmatism in a way that single-vision lenses can’t.
Toric lenses can correct corneal (front surface of the eye) and lenticular (natural inner lens of the eye) astigmatism.
Hybrid Contact Lenses
Hybrid contact lenses are a combination of soft lenses and rigid gas-permeable lenses. These lenses provide patients with sharp vision and optimal comfort.
Hybrid contacts have a center that is gas permeable with a skirt of soft hydrogel material.
