Soft lenses differ in shape, size, air and water permeability, and moisture levels. Making the right choice prolongs the health of your eyes. As with all eyecare, we believe that taking the time to investigate, customize, and create a solution that works for you will keep you comfortable in your lenses for years.
1 Day Disposable Lenses
Why throw out lenses at all?
The more frequently you replace your contact lenses, the healthier and more comfortable your eyes can be. After a day of use, Protein, calcium, lipids and other substances found naturally in your tears can build up on your lenses. These deposits make your contacts less comfortable than when they were new, and can also make your eyes more prone to infection.
Recent studies show that 1 DAY patients have 92% fewer health issues than 2 WEEK disposable lens patients. Find out which which lenses are best for you. Give us call today.
What’s the Difference?
Bifocal contacts lenses (like bifocal eyeglass lenses) have two powers – one for seeing clearly far away and one for seeing clearly up close. Multifocal contact lenses, like progressive eyeglass lenses, have a range of powers for seeing clearly far away, up close and everywhere in between. (“Multifocal” is also a catch-all term for all lenses with more than one power, including bifocals.)
After 40, you may notice your vision changing. Beginning at this age, you may need to hold reading material – like a menu or newspaper – farther from your eyes to see it clearly. This condition is called “presbyopia.” and it is every reason to inquire about multifocal lenses which can help you see clearer at any range.
Toric contact lenses
What are toric contact lenses?
If you have astigmatism – a common condition where the eye isn’t perfectly round, but more football- or egg-shaped – then you’ll need a special design of contact lenses called “toric” lenses for clear vision. Soft toric contact lenses have different powers in different meridians of the lens to correct the eye’s astigmatism. They also have design elements to keep the lens from rotating on your eye, so the meridians of the lens stay aligned with the meridians of your eye.
