Contacts

 
 

There are a variety of reasons why you may prefer contact lenses over eyewear. Weather your reasoning is purely cosmetic, based off of convenience or due to a medical condition we offer a variety of contact lens solutions for your vision care needs.

 

Soft lenses

These lenses are comfortable to wear and can correct most prescriptions including astigmatism. They come in a variety of replacement options such as daily, bi-weekly, and monthly disposables. silicone hydrogel is a new soft lens material that allows more oxygen to the eye increasing comfortability with these lenses. 

 

Gas-permeable (GP) Lenses

Made of durable plastic that transmits oxygen, these lenses offer sharper vision than most soft lens options. They are also known for being more durable and easier to handle than a soft lens, but require a longer adaptation time.

 

Multifocal lenses

These lenses are available in both soft and GP designs, and give patients both distance and near correction similar to bifocal glasses.

 

color contact lenses

colored contacts allow you to correct your vision and your eye color at the same time. They come in a variety of colors for both light and dark eyes.

 

Hybrid contact Lenses

hybrid contacts are large-diameter lenses that have a rigid gas permeable central zone, surrounded by a peripheral zone made of soft or silicone hydrogel material. the purpose of this design is to provide the clarity of a GP lens with the comfort of a soft. they are especially beneficial for patients with irregular astigmatism, keratoconus, corneal ectasia, and a history of corneal transplant.

 

Scleral Lenses

These are large-diameter GP lenses that rest on the sclera (white of the eye) and create a tear-filled vault over the cornea. the cornea is one of the most sensitive tissues in the body. Since these lenses do not touch the cornea they are extremely comfortable and give clear vision. patients with irregular astigmatism and corneal disease benefit from this lens design. In addition, scleral lenses have become a new type of treatment option for ocular dryness associated with Sjogren's syndrome.
