Choosing your Contact Lenses
Don’t worry about being overwhelmed when choosing what type of lens to wear, the selection is vast, but they vary in needs. They are broken down into several categories; whether you want to sleep in them, dispose of them daily or based on what the lenses are made of. Based on your initial assessment and discussion with our Optometrist, you will be able to select the lenses which best suit your needs.
Contact lenses are made of many different types of plastic, but they are divided into two main groups: soft or rigid gas permeable. Soft contact lenses contain from 25% to 79% water, are easy to adapt to and are quite comfortable. Rigid gas permeable contact lenses take longer to adapt to, but are more durable and more resistant to deposit buildup. each lens type has its own replacement schedule. This refers to how long you can safely wear them
