SOFT CONTACTS

There are many different contact lens designs and materials available. Our job is to find the right contact lens design to give you the best vision and comfort. Soft contact lenses include monthly replacement, daily replacement, spherical design, toric designs for astigmatism, and monovision or multifocal designs when you need both a reading and distance prescription.

 

HYBRID CONTACT LENSES

A hybrid contact lens is a custom contact lens that has a hard lens in the center and a soft lens that surrounds the hard lens. The hard lens in the center provides crisp, clear vision while the surrounding soft lens provides all day comfort. The hybrid contact lens design is perfect for patients that experience intermittent blurry vision due to contact lens rotation. The center also has UVA and UVB protection from the sun. Ask your doctor if this lens is right for you!

 

SCLERAL CONTACT LENS

What is Keratoconus and how would a scleral lens help?

A scleral contact lens is a lens that vaults over the cornea (front, clear surface of the eye). The cornea’s main job is to help light focus before entering the eye. When patients have corneal conditions such as  keratoconus, it makes it harder to see clearly without the help of specialty contact lenses. Keratoconus causes the cornea to lose its uniform shape. A scleral contact lens provides a uniform surface that compensates for the irregular corneal surface that is often present with keratoconus. A scleral contact lens will help focus light entering your eye to provide you with sharper vision compared to a regular soft contact lens and glasses.

 

ORTHO-K

Orthokeratology also known as Ortho-K is often used in myopia control. It is sometimes used in adults that prefer not to wear glasses or contacts during the day time. Ortho-K is a hard contact lens that is used to temporarily reshape the cornea (front surface of the eye) during night wear.
