Soft Contact Lenses
Although tiny, these important medical devices are packed with technology designed to maximize oxygen and nutrient exchange and maintain healthy ocular tissue throughout the duration of wear. We tailor each contact lens exam, with options ranging from monthly to daily disposable lenses to suit our patients’ varying comfort and lifestyle needs. Patients with the following refractive conditions may benefit from soft contact lenses:
- Myopia (Nearsightedness)
- Hyperopia (Farsightedness)
- Astigmatism (Irregular corneal or lens curvature)
Presbyopia: Presbyopia is an age-related condition in which the crystalline lens of the eye hardens and impedes a person’s ability to focus on close objects. For individuals with reading difficulties secondary to presbyopia, multifocal contact lenses can correct vision and provide some freedom from spectacle wear.
