At Peninsula Eye care, we provide vision correction in Salinas for patients with near or farsightedness. Eyeglasses and contact lenses are the best way to correct vision in an easy manner and with a short vision test. It’s important to be sure you have the right prescription so that your eyes are not strained, which can cause headaches. Our eyeglass selection varies and is designed to fit our patient’s needs. Our contact lenses come in many different types, from daily disposable to astigmatism as well as extended wear lenses. We also carry soft or hard contact lenses.
Our hard contact lenses are also known as rigid or gas-permeable (GP) lenses. They offer wearers the benefit of sharper vision, but they just take longer to get used to. GP lenses correct astigmatism or nearsightedness and are versatile and sharp. If you are seeking the best in eyeglasses and vision correction in Salinas, call us.

We most commonly prescribe soft contact lenses for vision correction in Salinas because of their comfort level and versatility, and even better, soft contacts can now be prescribed for patients with astigmatism. In the past, patients with astigmatism could not wear soft contact lenses. Types of soft contact lenses include those worn for daily wear, extended and disposable. Daily wear contacts can be worn for up to 12 hours, removed each night and cleaned, and then used again the next day. Extended wear contacts can be worn flexibly and for longer periods of time. Disposable lenses are usually only worn for a day before being discarded.
