Today, contact lenses are available to correct for almost every imaginable vision problem for patients ranging from one month to more than ninety years of age. More importantly, contact lenses are incredibly safe and unlike other refractive options are totally reversible.
Not everyone is an ideal candidate for contact lenses. A separate contact lens fitting/evaluation is needed in order to receive a prescription and/or purchase contact lenses. The FDA classifies contact lenses as a medical device for the eyes and therefore a contact lens prescription expires one year from the written prescription date.
Contacts come in a variety of modalities. The doctor with fit you with either soft contacts or hard contacts (Rigid gas permeable lenses). There are pros and cons to both and your doctor will choose the best option for his/her patient.
We offer and fit our patients with a variety of contacts lenses that best suits their visual needs. To schedule an appointment for a lens evaluation please feel free to contact any of our representatives today.
Types of Lenses
- Contacts for Astigmatism: Astigmatism is a very common condition where the curvature of the front of the eye isn’t round, but is instead shaped more like a football or an egg. Astigmatism won’t keep you from wearing contact lenses – it just means you need a different kind of lens.Lenses specially designed to correct astigmatism are called “toric” lenses. Most toric lenses are soft lenses. Toric soft lenses are a little thicker than regular spherical contact lenses because they are designed to maintain proper alignment which keeps the lens from rotating on the eyes.In some cases, toric soft lenses may rotate too much on the eye, causing blur. If this happens, different brands that have different anti-rotation designs can be tried. If soft lens rotation continues to be a problem, gas permeable (GP) lenses (with or without a toric design) can also correct astigmatism.
- Contacts for Dry Eyes: Contract lens are designed to be hydrophilic (water loving). Contacts tend to absorb the moisture from the eyes causing eyes to become more dry. If a patient has pre-existing dry eyes, wearing contacts can aggravate the dry eye condition. Some symptoms of dry eyes are:
- A scratchy, gritty, sand paper type feeling
- Feeling as if something is rubbing or stuck in the eyes(like a loose eyelash)
- A burning sensation
- Eye redness (especially later in the day)
- Blurred vision
- Daily disposable contact lenses: Daily disposable contacts are recommended for patients with allergies, travelers, patients that participate in water sports, patients that have a history of heavy protein deposits on their contacts, and patients who are inconvenienced with the cleaning and storage of their contacts.
- Bifocal / Multifocal Contacts for Presbyopic patients: Presbyopia is the normal loss of focusing ability up close when you reach your 40s.Today, there are many designs of bifocal and multifocal contact lenses to correct presbyopia. Another option for presbyopia is monovision. This is wearing a contact lens in one eye for distance vision and a lens in the other eye that has a modified power for near vision.During your contact lens fitting we can help you decide whether bifocal/multifocal contact lenses or monovision is best for you.
- Contacts for Keratoconus: Keratoconus is a relatively uncommon eye condition where the cornea becomes steeper, thinner, and has an irregular surface. The exact cause of keratoconus remains unknown but has a hereditary component. It affects men more than women and usually affects patients after their teenage years. Finding an accurate prescription for a keratonus patient may be difficult. Glasses are recommend first. Hard contacts are a second treatment option before corneal transplant surgery is indicated.Gas permeable contact lenses are the treatment option of choice for mild and moderate keratoconus. Because they are rigid, GP lenses can help contain the shape of the cornea to prevent further bulging of the cornea. They also can correct vision problems caused by keratoconus that cannot be corrected with eyeglasses or soft contacts.In some cases, a soft contact lens is worn under the GP lens for greater comfort. This technique is called “piggybacking.” Another option for some patients is a hybrid contact lens that has a GP center, surrounded by a soft “skirt”.
- Contacts for Myopia: Ortho-k contact lenses flatten your cornea without surgery, enabling light to focus properly on your retina, resulting in better vision. These lenses are worn at night time during sleep. Ortho-k lenses mold and reshape the cornea. After removing the lens in the morning, good vision is achieved without the need for eyeglasses or contacts the entire day. This process needs to be repeated on a nightly basis to maintain proper reshaping of the cornea.
- Color Contacts: Want to change, enhance or illuminate your eye color? For dark eyes or light eyes, even if your vision is perfect or you have astigmatism, we have the lenses for you.
