Eyeglasses can be easily broken, misplaced, smudged, or fogged. They can also limit your field of vision.
Contact lenses can be a liberating alternative to eyeglasses. Our Del Mar, CA, practice many options available to fit your needs.
Why do so many patients prefer contact lenses over glasses?
Contact Lenses Change Your Perception and Others' Perception of You
A Full Field of Vision
Although eyeglasses are a tried and true method of vision correction, they limit your field of vision. Contact lenses allow you to experience an uninterrupted field of vision.
Suited for Active Lifestyles
If you work outdoors, eyeglasses can easily become fogged or smudged. If you live an active lifestyle, they can also slide down your nose or become damaged. Contact lenses, on the other hand, remain in place all day.
Look How You Like
If you are dressing up for a special occasion, it can be difficult to match your outfit to your eyeglasses. But with contact lenses, you can showcase your natural features and lose the frames.
More Reasons to Choose Contacts
Drs. Gordon G. Wong and Wildon C. Wong offer high-quality contact lenses at Wink Optometry & Eyewear in Del Mar, CA.

Ideal Candidates for Contact Lenses
Thanks to recent advancements in optometry, more patients than ever are able to wear contact lenses. Previously, patients with astigmatism, chronic dry eye (CDE), or those in need of multifocal lenses were not suitable candidates. Many contact styles are now available to accommodate patients who suffer from these conditions. We may not recommend contacts to patients who suffer from severe allergies or those with recurring eye infections.
We offer a variety of contact lens options so we can find the option that is right for you. With a variety of prescriptions available in our on-site lab, you may be able to receive your new lenses the same day.
What to Expect During Your Fitting
We perform contact lens fittings for patients who are new to contacts and also for long-time wearers during their annual eye exam. Doing so ensures an accurate and comfortable fit that can prevent damage to the eyes. At the end of your exam, your doctor will carefully measure each eye to ensure that your new contacts are of the proper diameter, curvature, and refractive correction.
Our Premium Lenses
We offer a wide selection of premium contact lenses. During your fitting, your doctor will talk to you about your preferences, lifestyle, and other related concerns. We want to provide a comfortable and effective fit, and this information will help us provide you with the right lenses. Drs. Gordon Wong and Wildon Wong have carefully selected some of the top contact lens brands for optimal protection of your eyes and improved visual acuity. Our premium brands include:
- Bausch + Lomb
For patients in need of specialty lenses, we also offer:
- Alden Optical
- Art Optical
- Carter Contact
- GP Specialist
Contact Lens Options
Many of our brands offer several different lens options, such as hard, soft, and multifocal varieties. Your doctor will help you determine which type is best-suited for your eyes following your examination. There are some minor but important differences between these lenses, including:
- Disposable soft lenses are one of the most popular options. The length of time disposable lenses can be worn ranges from just a day to a month before switching to a new pair.
- Continuous wear lenses increase oxygen flow to the eye, so you do not have to remove and clean them on a nightly basis.
- Toric lenses are soft contacts designed for patients with astigmatism.
- Progressive soft lenses are designed for patients suffering from presbyopia, and can eliminate the need for bifocals or reading glasses.
- Cosmetic lenses are available in a variety of different colors to change or enhance the appearance of your eye.
