Contact Lenses

  • These rigid lenses aren’t as popular or well-known as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision and high oxygen permeability.

  • Challenges such as astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes needn’t be a barrier to contact lens wear, but they do require more time and patience.

  • What if you could wear contacts while sleeping, and then see clearly during the day without them? It might sound like magic, but it’s a time-tested reality called ortho-k.

  • If you need correction for presbyopia but dislike the idea of bifocal eyeglasses, you have many contact lens options.

  • “I can’t wear soft contacts; I have astigmatism.” This once-true statement is now simply a myth.
