Contact lenses can be used to improve vision problems related to nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism and can also be used to address bifocal/multifocal needs.

Your Contact Lens Options
To help you find just the right solution for your visual satisfaction and optical comfort, our eye doctors offer several types of contact lenses including:
- Disposable and planned replacement lenses – This type of soft lens is prescribed with a very specific usage schedule that is individually determined during your personal evaluation. Generally the safest, healthiest and most comfortable regimen is to use daily disposables that are used only once and discarded.
- Rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses – Lasting longer than soft lenses with increased durability and resistance to deposit buildup, these lenses can provide clearer, crisper vision and tend to be less expensive over the life of the lens.
- Lenses for astigmatism – Known as toric lenses, these prescriptions are readily available in both soft and rigid gas permeable contacts. Toric contact lenses require a greater degree of fitting expertise in order to obtain the most precise vision.
- Extended wear lenses – These contacts are available and FDA approved to be worn for up to 30 days. The total duration will depend on the lens type and specific recommendations of your optometrist based on your contact lens examination, contact lens fitting and the evaluation of your tolerance for overnight wear.
- Specialty lenses – For patients with corneal pathology, our eye doctors use special RGP and hybrid lenses.
- Decorative lenses – If you do not need vision correction but would like to alter the appearance of your eyes, we offer non-prescription lenses. Although these lenses can be found at numerous consumer locations, they should always be purchased at your ophthalmology office with a professional fitting and prescription to prevent causing harm to your eyes.
Our experienced eye doctors will help you determine which type of contact lens is right for you during your personal consultation.
