Types of Contact Lenses

Soft Contact Lenses

Soft contact lenses are made of a soft material that allows oxygen to pass and get to the cornea. They are usually very comfortable and are the most common types of eye care contact lenses.

Rigid Gas Permeable Contact Lenses

Rigid gas permeable lenses, also known as hard contact lenses, are not as common and prescribed for people suffering from astigmatism and myopia.

Disposable Contact Lenses

Disposable contact lenses are soft contact lenses that can be worn once then are thrown away. Some are also disposable weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

Extended Wear Contact Lenses

Extended wear contact lenses are usually worn without being removed overnight. Most of the extended wear contacts are usually soft contact lenses, although there are a few gas permeable lenses. Depending on their type, extended wear contact lenses can be worn for a few days or up to 30 days. 

How to Care for Contact Lenses

Proper eye care is vital when wearing contact lenses to prevent damage to your eyes. We will ensure you know how to properly insert and remove your contacts during your contact lens exam. Common ways to care for your contact lenses include:

  • Practice good hygiene when wearing contact lenses. Wash your hands with water and soap before inserting or removing the lenses.
  • Only use the recommended solution for disinfecting your lenses. Any other solution may damage the lenses.
  • Always leave the lenses in their closed case after disinfecting them.
  • Replace contact lenses as recommended by our optometrist. Following the replacement schedule will prevent problems and ensure your eyes are comfortable.
