Contact Lenses for the Whole Family
Contact lenses beautifully combine comfort and clarity to deliver an experience you’ll have to see to believe.
Every pair of eyes are different. From the prescription you need for seeing clearly to maintaining your eye health, your eyes need tailored solutions, and this includes the type of eyewear you wear.

The Contact Lens Process
Before you can start wearing contact lenses, we will walk you through our completely comprehensive contact lens exam and fitting process. Because every pair of eyes are different, we need to ensure your contact lenses are matched to your particular needs.
Contact lenses can be comfortably worn by adults and children alike! If you or your family already wear contact lenses, please bring your current pair to the exam so we can help determine if we need to update the prescription.
An Eye Exam
Eye exams are essential before we prescribe any pair of contact lenses. There are several different conditions that could make it difficult to wear contact lenses comfortably, but our team can look for these issues and find a suitable solution for your eyes.
Some of these conditions can include:
Keratoconus and other corneal conditions
Fittings are the next step in the process. Once we determine your eyes can wear contact lenses, we’ll move on to fitting you for contact lenses, which can include taking measurements of your eye’s size, shape, and tear film quality.
We may have you try on a few different types of contacts to ensure we find the best fit for you.
A Trial Period
Once we find a pair of contacts that work best, we’ll have you wear them for a short trial period, which is generally about a week. We’ll also book a follow-up appointment so we can assess your eyes and see how they adjusted to wearing contacts.
If you notice any irritation, redness, or general discomfort, please remove your contacts and call our team as soon as you can.
Are All Contacts The Same?
There is a wide variety of contact lenses available, and some of them are specially designed to address specific conditions your eyes may have. Camarillo Vision Center is proud to offer a range of different contact lenses for you to try on, including several types of specialty contacts.
Rigid Gas-Permeable Contacts
Rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses are among the most common types of contacts available. Many people enjoy RGP lenses because of their crisp visual quality, durability, and ease of use. However, it may take a little longer to adjust to RGP lenses when compared to soft contact lenses.
RGP lenses are made from plastic materials that allow oxygen to pass through to your eye, helping you wear contacts comfortably even if you have certain conditions that make your eyes hard to fit.
Soft contact lenses are the most common contact lenses used in the United States. They are made from soft hydrogel materials that make them generally easy to adjust to and comfortable to wear.
Soft contacts come in single-day, overnight, and extended-wear types.
If you have a corneal condition like keratoconus, scleral contacts may be a great solution for you. Scleral contacts are larger than the average contact lens, allowing them to “vault” over your cornea and rest on the sclera (whites) of your eyes.
Other Specialty Contact Lenses
We offer several types of specialty contact lenses. Depending on what your eyes might need, we can recommend:
All Clariti 1-Day lenses feature high water content — a key feature for comfort. AquaGen™ technology makes it possible. The AquaGen™ process creates a lens that naturally attracts and binds water molecules to the lens surface, so your eyes can stay moist and comfortable throughout your day.
Proclear by CooperVision are a line of daily-disposable contact lenses with options available for nearly every corrective lens prescription need, including options for astigmatism. They feature Phosphorylcholine, a material that attracts water and encourages healthy eye hydration.
