Disposable

 

Disposable-wear lenses are removed nightly and replaced on either a  daily (one day), weekly or monthly schedule.  One-Day disposable lenses are greatly recommended for teenagers, people with allergies or for those who tend to form deposits on their lenses.

 

 

 

Toric soft contact lenses

 

Toric soft contact lenses can correct astigmatism.  They are available as one-day, bi-weekly or monthly replacement lenses.

Monovision

 

Monovision is a technique that is often prescribed for people age 40 and older who are affected by presbyopia and need close-up correction. Presbyopia occurs when, as part of the natural aging process, the eye’s crystalline lens loses its ability to bring close objects into clear focus.

 

Monovision means wearing a contact lens for near vision on one eye and, if needed, a lens for distance vision on the other eye. Most people whom try monovision are able to adjust to it.  Alternative treatments for presbyopia include a combination of contact lenses and reading glasses ,or your doctor may also prescribe bifocal contact lenses.

 

Bifocal or multifocal contact lenses

 

Bifocal or multifocal contact lenses  can correct nearsightedness/farsightedness in combination with presbyopia.  Visual quality is often not as good as with single vision lenses; however, for some people the ability to correct presbyopia is worth it.

Extended Extended-wear lenses are worn overnight but are removed at least weekly for thorough cleaning and disinfection. They are being recommended less frequently, since there is a greater risk of corneal infection with any overnight wear of contact lenses.

Contact Lenses

  • Storing Your Contact Lenses

     4 Rinse the contact lens case with fresh solution — not water. Then leave the empty case open to air dry. 4 Keep the contact lens case clean and replace it regularly, at least every three months. Lens cases can be a source of contamination and infection. Do not us cracked or damaged lens cases.

     

  • Contact Lens Solution Guidelines

    Handle your contact lens solution with care: 4 Do not re-use old solution or "top off" the solution in your lens case. 4 Do not transfer contact lens solution into smaller travel-size containers. This can affect the sterility of the solution, which can lead to an eye infection. 4 Do not allow the tip of the solution bottle to come in contact with any surface, and keep the bottle tightly closed when not in use. 4 If you store your lenses in the case for an extended period of time, consult the instructions for the lenses or the contact lens solution to determine if re-disinfecting the lenses is appropriate before you wear them. In no case should you wear your lens after storage for 30 or more days without re-disinfecting.
  • Cleaning Your Contact Lenses

     4 Contact lenses should not be rinsed with or stored in water (tap or sterile water). 4 Do not put your lenses in your mouth to wet them. Saliva is not a sterile solution. 4 Do not use saline solution and rewetting drops to disinfect lenses. Neither is an effective or approved disinfectant. 4 Wear and replace contact lenses according to the schedule prescribed by your eye care professional. Follow the specific contact lens cleaning and storage guidelines from your eye care professional and the solution manufacturer. 4 During cleaning, rub your contact lenses with your fingers, then rinse the lenses with solution before soaking them. This "rub and rinse" method is considered by some experts to be a superior method of cleaning, even if the solution you are using is a "no-rub" variety.

 

The following guidelines for care of contact lenses have been developed in partnership by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the Contact Lens Association for Ophthalmologists, the Cornea Society and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. Regardless of th

type you decide on, proper care of the lenses is essential to eye health.
