A contact lens is a prescribed medical device used to correct vision. Contact lenses are a safe alternative in place of glasses when used with proper care and use. They can correct a variety of refractive errors including myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia.
There are various types of contact lenses depending on your needs and your prescription. The most common types of lenses currently prescribed are soft contact lenses. These lenses are soft, flexible, and allow for more oxygen to reach the cornea directly. Our doctors will customize the right prescription for you depending on your needs. We offer a variety of multifocal contact lenses as well as monovision for patients who are looking to correct both distance and near vision.
An alternative to soft contact lenses are gas-permeable lenses, or hard contact lenses. These lenses help deliver more oxygen to the cornea and can help better correct vision for conditions such as keratoconus.
