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.

Make Your Appointment at The Classical Eye

As part of your contact lens fitting, your optometrist will show you how to put in and take out contact lenses, as well as care for them properly. It is very important to follow these best care practices in order to avoid irritation or infection. When worn properly, contact lenses are safe, comfortable, and effective at correcting a variety of vision problems.
