Common Contact Lenses
Soft Contact Lenses
The science behind contact lenses is continually advancing, making soft contact lenses an option for more people every day. Soft contact lenses are available in a variety of types, including spherical, toric, and multifocal. They are also available in a variety of replacement frequencies, like daily, bi-weekly, or monthly, to best suit your vision needs and lifestyle.
Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses
RGP contact lenses are typically used by patients with high prescriptions and strong astigmatism and offer excellent acuity. This style of contact lens is prescribed less frequently and is meticulously designed to suit individual corneas. RGP contact lenses are made from durable materials, which means they only need to be replaced annually.
Scleral Contact Lenses
For some patients, conventional contact lenses may exaggerate the symptoms of dry eyes. Our optometrists can introduce you to scleral lenses, a type of contact that vaults over the cornea, resting on the sclera, the whites of the eye.
Some patients feel much more comfortable using scleral lenses. A contact lens exam & fitting at our optometric centre can determine if these lenses are right for you.
