When it comes to soft contact lenses, the Summit Eyecare optometrists are experts in determining the best solution for you. We will work with you to identify the most comfortable soft contact lenses to provide you with the best overall eyesight from the variety of contact lenses available today.
Soft contact lenses are designed with health and convenience in mind. Soft contact lenses are ideal for people who are active, suffer from seasonal allergies or are prone to eye infections.
Soft contact lenses are disposable on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Your doctor will discuss the following options with you:
Daily Wear Soft Contact Lenses
Daily wear disposable contacts are contact lenses that are intended to be worn during the day and then are thrown away at night. These are a very thin and soft contact lens and are the healthiest type of contact lens.
2-Week Wear Soft Contact Lenses
The 2-Week disposable soft contact lenses are also a healthy version of soft contact lens and are not as expensive as daily wear lenses. These lenses are worn during the day and stored in a soaking solution at night. At the end of the two-week period, they are discarded.
Monthly Wear Soft Contact Lenses
Monthly-wear disposable soft contact lenses are also worn during the day and stored in a soaking solution a night. They are discarded after a month of use.
While these soft contact lenses may be the least expensive, they are not recommended for those who suffer from seasonal allergies or are prone to eye infections. Some patients find these comfortable while others do not as the consistency of these lenses differ from daily wear and 2-week wear lenses.
Multifocal Soft Contact Lenses
Like with glasses there are multifocal options with contact lenses.
With this type of soft contact lens, one lens is prescribed for distance and the other is prescribed for close-up vision. The brain automatically adjusts to the lens for which the individual is focusing.
Multifocal Soft Contact Lenses
Multifocal soft contact lenses are designed with varying “rings” or sections of power on each lens. This allows an individual’s focus to adjust and adapt from close-up sight for reading, to intermediate sight, or to distant sight for object far away.
Toric Lenses for Astigmatism
Toric lenses are a special type of contact lens that is designed for patients with astigmatism. To correct the vision of patients with astigmatism, Toric soft contact lenses are shaped with differing curvature than that of typical contact lenses. The altered curvature matches the shape of the cornea or lens of the eye when placed properly in the eye.
