A variety of disposable soft contact lenses are available, including bifocal/multifocal, toric, and colored lenses. You can find all types of lenses at North Shore Advanced Eye Care, whether you wear disposables, weekly or monthly, or conventional lenses (vials).
In order to wear contact lenses safely, a thorough eye exam is required to determine the most current prescription and rule out any pre-existing conditions.
Based on your lifestyle needs and your eye shape and health, we will determine the most appropriate lens for you. Usually, you’ll have the chance to try lenses the same day as your appointment. Choosing a final product can even be done with a few samples at home.
Disposable contact lenses are generally considered to be far superior in comfort and wearability than hard and rigid lenses.
A routine exam won’t provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear, and to generate your contact lens Rx.
Fortunately for those who don’t like the look, feel or inconvenience of reading glasses, there is another option. Bifocal and multifocal lenses are also available in contact lenses in both soft and rigid varieties.
These rigid lenses aren’t as popular or well-known as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision and high oxygen permeability.
Challenges such as astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes needn’t be a barrier to contact lens wear, but they do require more time and patience.
“I can’t wear soft contacts; I have astigmatism.” This once-true statement is now simply a myth.
