Advances in contact lens materials have made contacts more permeable to oxygen, and therefore healthier and more comfortable. New lens designs have improved toric lenses (contact lenses that correct for astigmatism), making them more stable and clearer. Multifocal lenses, for those who need help reading, are now more wearable with improved distance and near vision. Contact lenses are available in more powers and for more applications, providing more people with a healthy, convenient alternative to glasses and refractive surgery. Coloured contacts can be a fun and fashionable choice as well.
If you were considering contacts or had questions about a certain type of contact, let us know at your next examination. We work with products from several manufacturers and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
