Daily disposable contact lenses are available in a wide range of prescriptions, including those for patients with nearsightedness and farsightedness, astigmatism, and even bifocal/multifocal designs. Your eye doctor will be able to advise you if you are a candidate for daily disposable contact lenses.
Toric contact lenses are recommended for patients who have a refractive eye problem called astigmatism. Patients with astigmatism have a corneal shape that causes the light focusing through the eye to be focused different between the vertical and horizontal planes, causing blurred vision and difficulty seeing fine details. Toric contact lenses are shaped in a specific way that creates the different focusing powers needed in each part of the lens to correct your vision.
Monthly or 2 week replacement
Replaced either monthly or bi-weekly, these contact lenses are thicker than daily disposables. The thicker composition makes them more durable and long-lasting, and they are usually more resistant to drying out. However, they must be disinfected regularly in order to ensure healthy wearing. Monthly lenses are available in an extensive range of prescriptions.
Multifocal contacts help people see clearly across a range of distances, and are often used to correct presbyopia. Multifocal lenses bend light to more than one focal point on the retina. This is how they compensate for refractive errors affecting near, intermediate, and distance vision. Many people with presbyopia choose to wear multifocal contacts rather than juggling two pairs of prescription glasses, bifocal glasses or reading glasses over top of their contact lenses
Multifocal Toric Contact Lenses combine the benefits of a toric lens for correction of astigmatism with the multifocal aspect needed to correct presbyopia. This is a relatively new contact lens design, but one that we are seeing good success with to reduce a patient's reliance on reading glasses or bifocals while also correcting astigmatism.
