What are my options?
There are many contact lens options available. Your eye care provider will take your lifestyle and vision correction needs into consideration when helping you select the right lenses for your eyes.
Here are some of the most common contact lens types:
- Daily Replacement Soft Contact Lenses – Daily replacement contact lenses are the most popular, hygienic, and comfortable form of contact lenses today. Soft lenses are appropriate to correct near and farsightedness and astigmatism. These lenses are meant to be worn all day and thrown away at night before bed. What’s great about these lenses is that you are wearing a brand new lens each and every day.
- Monthly Replacement Soft Contact Lenses – Most contact lenses are daily wear. This means that they are worn all day and then removed at night for cleaning. These lenses generally last until their given expiration date, at which point they must be discarded and replaced because the lens material begins to break down.
- Hard Contact Lenses – Hard contact lenses are rigid gas permeable. This means that they are porous enough to allow oxygen to enter through to the cornea. Hard contact lenses keep their shape on the eye. These lenses are custom-made for the patient’s eyes and specific visual needs. Many times these lenses are prescribed to patients who have corneal disorders such as keratoconus, pellucid’s marginal degeneration, or post-lasik ectasia.
- Scleral Contact Lenses – Scleral lenses are also hard contact lenses but are much larger than your typical rigid gas permeable lens. These lenses are custom-made for the patient’s eyes and treat conditions such as an irregular cornea, severe dry eyes (ex: Sjogren’s syndrome), or post-lasik ectasia. These lenses typically help patients see better than they can see with their eye glasses.
- Colored Contact Lenses – These are worn to enhance or completely change the visual color of the iris. They are still prescription contact lenses, however, and need to be treated with the same care you would give to regular lenses.
