What are my options?
There are many contact lens options available. Dr. Ben Palmer will take your lifestyle and vision correction needs into consideration when helping you select the right lenses for your eyes.
Here are some of the most common contact lens types:
- Hard contact lenses – Hard contact lenses are rigid gas permeable. This means that they are porous enough to allow oxygen to enter through to the cornea. Hard contact lenses keep their shape on the eye. As such, they are sometimes recommended to curb the progression of nearsightedness in younger wearers.
- Disposable soft contact lenses – Intended to be worn during waking hours. Disposable contact lenses cone in either daily, weekly, or monthly replacement. Disposable lenses are also appropriate for children who might not take excellent care when cleaning their lenses.
- Colored contact lenses – These are worn to enhance or completely change the visual color of the iris. They are still prescription contact lenses, however, and need to be treated with the same care you would give to regular lenses. Many — but not all — brands of contact lens companies offer colored lens options.
