Contact lenses are not an easy solution for every person suffering with vision problems. Some eye conditions make wearing contacts a difficult proposition. However, it does not rule out wearing contact lenses altogether. It just means patients need to discuss options with their eye care provider and obtain specialized hard to fit contacts for their specific vision problems.
Types of Contacts:
Soft Contact Lenses
Toric Contact Lenses
Multifocal Contact Lenses
Boston Gas Permeable Contact Lenses
Duette Contact Lenses
Soft Contact Lenses Soft contact lenses are made of soft, flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through to the cornea. Soft contact lenses may be easier to adjust to and are more comfortable than rigid gas permeable lenses. Newer soft lens materials include silicone-hydrogels to provide more oxygen to your eye while you wear your lenses.
Soft-Lenses come as daily, bi-weekly, monthly, or extended wear to meet each individual's needs. Certain contacts are made to add more moisture for those with dry eyes, while others are made to account for specific conditions such as astigmatism or presbyopia (multifocal).
