Types of Correction
Spherical contacts correct nearsightedness and farsightedness. Recently Silicone Hydrogels have become the lens of choice for better corneal health.
Toric contact lenses correct astigmatism. Today’s modern contact lenses enable us to correct even large amounts of astigmatism.
Multifocal contact lenses allow patients to see both up close and far away without the use of glasses. These lenses can be either soft or rigid material.
Monovision: One eye is corrected for distance vision and the other for near vision. Although at first glance this may seem difficult to adapt to many people do very well.
Keratoconus: A condition where the cornea protrudes and specialty lenses, usually rigid, are needed to correct vision.
Corneal Refractive Therapy: A process where a contact lens is worn at night and the cornea is molded or reshaped to decrease dependence on glasses or contacts during the day.
