Contact Lens Designs

Soft contact lenses are available in a variety of materials, designs and wearing schedules to meet each patients’ unique needs.

Lens Designs:

  • Spherical contact lenses have the same lens power throughout the lens. Spherical lenses are available to correct myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness).
  • Toric contact lenses have different powers in different meridians of the lens. These lenses are used to correct astigmatism as well as nearsightedness or farsightedness.
  • Multifocal contact lenses (bifocal contacts) allow for correction of both near and far vision. These lenses correct nearsightedness or farsightedness and presbyopia. There are multifocal contact lenses available to correct astigmatism also.
  • Cosmetic contact lenses are another type of contact lenses that is available. These include color contacts, which change or intensify the color of your eyes. Special effect contact lenses are available for Halloween or theatrical uses. A contact lens  prescription is required for cosmetic contacts even if you have no need for vision correction in these lenses.
  • Medically necessary contact lenses are available to treat a variety of eye conditions including keratoconus and pellucid marginal degeneration.

Soft Contact Lenses

Soft contact lenses are made of soft, flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through the contact lens to the cornea. Soft contact lenses tend to be very comfortable and easy to adjust to. The majority of our soft contact lens wearers through away their contacts either daily, every two weeks or monthly.

Rigid Gas Permeable

Rigid gas permeable contact lenses (RGPs) are made of a hard plastic material. These lenses are very durable and resistant to deposit buildup. They can take some adjusting to for initial comfort, but patients are typically very comfortable wearing them within a few weeks. RGP’s generally give the wearer clearer, crisper vision. These lenses can often be used to treat eye diseases and improve vision when traditional glasses or contacts cannot.

Scleral Lenses

Scleral lenses are large-diameter gas permeable (GP) lenses that offer the vision benefits of RGP’s with enhanced comfort.

These lenses are called “scleral” lenses because, instead of covering only a portion of the cornea (like RGP lenses), these large GP lenses vault over the entire corneal surface and rest on the “white” of the eye (the sclera). This tends to make them very comfortable and stable. Also, like RGP lenses, these lenses are used to treat a variety of eye diseases.

Myopia Control Contacts

Myopia control contacts are special contact lenses designed to slow or stop the progression of nearsightedness in children.

While there is not a cure for myopia (nearsightedness), these lenses can be used to slow its progression in children. The result is that your child doesn’t need stronger glasses year after year. Slowing the progression of myopia may keep children from developing high levels of nearsightedness that require thick corrective eyeglasses and have been associated with serious eye problems later in life, such as early cataracts or even a detached retina.
