Contact Lens Types
Different types of contact lenses can offer different benefits to you. While some vision problems require a specific type of contact lens, your own preferences also make a difference as well.
Soft contact lenses are the most common contact lens type. Known for being easy to wear and lastingly comfortable, they are appropriate for treating nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Available in long wearing and daily disposable, soft contact lenses are an easy fit into any lifestyle.
Rigid or RGP contact lenses are also appropriate for treating nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Some patients find that they can achieve even more clarity of vision by wearing rigid contact lenses. It may require a period of adjustment before rigid contact lenses feel completely comfortable for some patients.
Toric contact lenses can be soft or rigid and are specially shaped to treat certain types of astigmatism.
Specialty contact lenses are also available to treat specific eye conditions such as keratoconus or dry eye syndrome. Talk to your optometrist about your options if you are interested in contact lenses as treatment.
