Dear Patients,

We are getting ready to reopen the offices for regular patient care on May 15th in Dana Point and May 16th in Irvine. In order to avoid crowding and to stay on top of additional disinfection procedures, appointment slots will be limited. What you can expect:

  1. Face coverings required, non-touch temperature reading, hand washing upon arrival.
  2. Disinfection of touch surfaces in addition to our usual sanitation procedures as well as barrier films on certain high-touch areas.
  3. Digital frame measurement technologies for all spectacle orders to replace face-to-face measurements.
  4. On-site, but non-facing payment options.
  5. Elimination of paper and electronic forms in the office.

We understand delays in care are inconvenient and can lead to poorer health outcomes. With reduced appointment volumes and a 2-month backlog, we will do our best to see all of you while maintaining strict safety precautions. Your cooperation in completing medical questionnaires at home, prior to your visit, is greatly appreciated. We’re all excited to see you soon.

Five Patients Share Their Experiences with Scleral Lenses

How has your vision been since switching to scleral lenses?

“It has been very clear, a lot better than my soft contacts and a lot more comfortable all day. My favorite thing is that I can tell that my vision is corrected as perfectly as it can.”

How did your life change when you got scleral lenses?

“It changed dramatically, I am a traveling nurse, driving early morning and late at night. I can now drive at night and the lights don’t bother me, It has helped me tremendously for my job. I have been wearing sclerals for over 3 years and I could never go back to regular hard contacts.”

Tell us what your vision was like with your old contacts?

“I had 20/50 vision with contact lenses, and now I can see 20/25 and I have gone down on my reading glasses from 2.0 to 1.5. And the great part is I can’t even tell I have anything in my eyes. The biggest thing about sclerals is keeping them clean and taking care of them.”

What is your history before sclerals?

“I was a keratoconus patient, I first had a corneal transplant on one eye and then the other. Did you try contacts after corneal transplant? I did but after 2 hours they hurt too much. Tell me the difference in your vision? There are no words to articulate, when I look at people I see detail like never before, it is like night and day.”

How Sclerals Changed Your Life?

“In middle school, I was diagnosed with Astigmatism and wore contact lenses, but in college, I started having issues and was diagnosed as having the early stages Keratoconus. I went to a lot of eye doctors, tried a lot of contacts, and eventually I underwent a corneal transplant. The surgery was not successful, and my vision remained as it was before surgery. Driving at night was no longer something that I could do because of blinding glare. Scleral Lenses literally changed my life, I didn’t know what I was missing.”

If you’re seeking relief for your astigmatism, keratoconus, misshapen corneas or dry eyes, Dr. Matthew Wang and Dr. Steven Wang can help. services patients from Irvine, Dana Point, Lake Forest, Newport Beach, and throughout California .
