Contact Lenses

We offer a wide selection of contact lenses in Redwood City.

Proudly serving San Francisco Bay Area for more than 30 years.

A lot of people prefer the comfort, clarity, and convenience of wearing contact lenses. To help as many patients as possible to experience the benefits of contacts, we stock an extensive selection of premium brands – in all types. We supply daily wear, weekly, monthly, daily disposables and a variety of specialty contacts for hard-to-fit vision conditions. Update your prescription and book an eye exam with our optometrist for San Carlos, Belmont, and Redwood City.

Our selection includes disposable soft contact, bifocal/multifocal, toric, and colored lenses. Whether you wear daily, weekly or monthly disposables, or conventional (vial) lenses, check out our selection of lenses that fit your needs.

A good contact lens fit at Optometry at Redwood City starts with a thorough eye exam to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and rule out any pre-existing conditions that could interfere with contact lens wear.

We will determine the best fitting lens based on your lifestyle needs, the shape and health of your eye. In most cases, you'll have the opportunity to try lenses on the same day as your exam. You can even go home with a few samples before making a final decision.

We follow up the initial fitting and then make any necessary changes in fit or materials to get you the best possible fit. We teach all our patients proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Then we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.

Dear Valued Patients:

We love our patients and the work we do so very much. While we are sad to think we will have to miss seeing your beautiful smiles for the next few weeks, protecting the health and safety of our patients, staff and the members of our community is of the utmost importance.

In response to recent recommendations from the California Optometric Association and the local government for limiting the spread of COVID-19, our office is closed. All regularly scheduled routine eye appointments will be cancelled. Our team will reach out to those impacted to reschedule.

If you need assistance with ordering or picking up contacts/glasses, please email us at info@optometryatrws.com or text us at 650-551-9111. We will be checking both emails and texts throughout the day, but please be patient with us in getting back to you. If you are experiencing an eye emergency, please text us at 650-551-9111. We will do our best to get back to you in a timely manner. If you do not hear back within 30 minutes, please go to the local urgent care or the emergency room.
