How Contact Lenses Make a Difference
Contact lenses can be a great addition to an active lifestyle or for people who require additional eyewear for their work or leisure activities. Similar to prescription glasses, contact lenses can correct various refractive errors, including:
During your contact lens exam, our optometrists will delve into your lifestyle needs and contact lens preferences to determine suitable options for you.
Contact Lens Maintenance Is Essential
Taking proper care of your contact lenses is key to maintaining eye health and comfort. Your optometrist will provide personalized instructions based on the specific type of lenses you wear. One universal rule is important to remember: always wash your hands thoroughly before handling your lenses to reduce the risk of bacterial exposure and prevent eye infections.
Our Range of Specialty Contact Lenses
Contact lenses fall into 2 main categories: soft and rigid gas-permeable (RGP). These categories include specialty lenses that can address unique visual needs, like myopia, presbyopia, and astigmatism.
Multifocal lenses can be ideal for people with presbyopia. They feature more than 1 prescription in the same lens, allowing you to focus at multiple distances.
Toric contact lenses are designed for people with astigmatism. They come in soft and rigid gas-permeable varieties.
ACUVUE Abiliti Soft Contacts are known for their breathable material that can keep eyes comfortable throughout the day. These daily disposable lenses are made from gas-permeable material that helps shape the cornea to manage myopia progression.
ACUVUE Abiliti soft contacts manage myopia by changing how light focuses on the retina so it can signal the eye to slow its growth and reduce myopia progression.
