Contact lenses may offer better vision correction than glasses because they correct the refractive error closer to the eye. Several types of contact lenses are available.
Digital Devices & Contact Lenses
Contact lenses are now available with UV blocking which can help ease eye fatigue while using digital devices.
Soft lenses are more comfortable then ridgid gas permeable or scleral lenses because they are made of a softer plastic called hydrogel or silicone hydrogel. They absorb a high percentage of tear, permitting a better flow of oxygen to the cornea. Usually soft contact lenses are removed from the eye at the end of each day.
Extended Wear Lenses
Extended wear lenses are soft contacts that have been licensed for continuous wear for up to 30 days and nights without being removed. Recommended for specialized use only.
Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses
Rigid gas permeable lenses combine the features of hard and soft contacts. They permit the passage of more oxygen to the cornea than hard lenses do, and are more effective for people with astigmatism and other eye issues.
Bifocal Contact Lenses
If you’re over 40, bifocal contact lenses may be a great option, helping you enjoy crisp, clear vision whether you are texting on your phone, working on your computer or looking for a street sign. You will find the clear vision you are looking for at all distances. Available in soft & rigid gas permeable contact lenses.
Toric lenses correct mild to severe astigmatism and are available in soft and ridgid gas permeable contact lenses.
Keratoconus Contact Lenses
Keratoconus (KC) is a thinning disorder of the cornea that causes visual distortion. Treatment options for keratoconus focus on correcting the distorted vision caused by the thinning and bulging of the cornea. Eyeglasses or soft contact lenses may be used to correct the mild near-sightedness and astigmatism caused by keratoconus in its earliest stage, however at some point a rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lens will be required to correct KC vision more accurately.
