Styles of Contact Lenses
Soft contact lenses are also known as hydrogel or hydrophilic lenses. These lenses are very flexible and are often the most comfortable lens to be worn initially. While very safe to use, these lenses are often disposable to decrease risks of complications, such as infection.
Rigid gas permeable contacts are stiffer lenses and require an adaptation period for best comfort. For some prescriptions, these lenses offer crisper vision and excellent oxygen permeability.
Daily Disposable – New lenses that are worn during the day and are disposed of each night. This is the healthiest mode of contact lens wear. These contact lenses are ideal for those people with Dry Eyes or those whom are unable to tolerate contact lenses throughout the entire day.
Daily wear contact lenses are worn during the day and are removed at night for cleaning and disinfection.
Extended wear contact lenses can be worn for prolonged periods of time or while sleeping. Typically, prolonged wear of contacts or sleeping in contacts reduces the amount of oxygen and tears that reach the cornea. This can result in eye infections, swelling, and abnormal vessel growth.
