How do contact lenses help vision?
Contact lenses are a superb solution to correct vision problems due to dry eyes, astigmatism, reading issues, near-sightedness, and far-sightedness.
What are the different types of contact lenses?
There are several types of contact lenses, designed for different vision issues, and made of different materials. Consider:
Soft contact lenses offer excellent oxygen flow, comfort, and superb fit.
Hard contact lenses in rigid gas permeable or hard versions. They provide crystal clear vision, breathability, and less eye infection risk.
Scleral contact lenses, which are larger than traditional hard lenses, cover more of your eye.
Soft, multifocal lenses, for management of near-sightedness, or myopia in children.
Soft, prosthetic lenses, which are colored and made of breathable material. They reduce glare and sensitivity to light, making them a great option for better night vision.
