Bifocal and Multifocal Contact Lenses
Bifocal and multifocal contact lenses are designed to restore vision at all distances for people over age 40 who have presbyopia and would otherwise need to wear reading glasses over their contacts.
Gas Permeable Contact Lenses
Gas permeable contact lenses (also called rigid gas permeable, RGP or GP lenses) are rigid contact lenses made of silicone-containing compounds that allow oxygen to pass through the lens material to the eye. Though not as popular as soft contact lenses, GP lenses offer a number of advantages.
Contact Lenses for the “Hard-to-Fit” Patient
A number of eye conditions can make wearing contact lenses more challenging. These conditions include…
Orthokeratology, or “ortho-k,” is the process of reshaping the eye with specially-designed rigid gas permeable (GP) contact lenses. The goal of ortho-k is to alter the shape of the front surface of the eye and thereby eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses during the day.
Contact Lens Basics
Contact lenses, like eyeglasses or vision surgery, can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. About 20 percent of Americans who need vision correction for these refractive errors wear contact lenses.
