Call us at 817-741-2020 to learn more about which contact lenses are right for you.
|The newest innovation in contact lenses. This material allows for better oxygen transmission through the lens, so that the cornea is not deprived of oxygen when wearing your contacts. Many patients find these contacts to be extremely comfortable.|
|The most popular soft contact lens. Insert in the morning and remove at night – not meant for sleeping in.|
|Contact lenses for astigmatism. Options include soft lens, rigid gas permeable lens, colors, disposable and multi-focal. Expert eye doctors specialize in toric lenses because they require additional training. Our eye doctors are happy to provide patients with Toric contact lenses.|
|Soft contacts with a throwaway lens that is designed for short-term use. Length of use depends on lens composition and can vary from one day to several weeks.|
|Can be worn continuously – even when sleeping. They come in different usages from 7 to 30 days, however longer-term usage lenses are stiffer and can be prone to scratches which can get uncomfortable.|
|Made from harder plastic material. Though not as flexible as soft lenses, they allow more oxygen to reach the cornea. They also can be used to correct a wider variety of vision problems than soft contact lenses.|
