Types of Contact Lenses
These lenses were designed for individuals who either have myopia (near-sightedness) or hypermetropia (long-sightedness). It is designed to serve a single prescription and will assist the user in seeing both distance and near objects. These lenses are available for both spherical and astigmatic powers.
These lenses are designed to solve problems for people who have multifocal limitations. The inability to see both distance and near objects without using 2 different powers for each. Multifocal lenses have different focal points in a single lens to help the wearer see distance and near clearly. Multifocal lenses have certain limitations in contact lenses. It is available only for certain powers.
Brands that We Dispense
We retail several brands of contact lenses. Today contact lenses are available for spherical, astigmatic and multifocal powers. Most contact lenses are clear, some are coloured and others have newly introduced photochromatic features. Depending on the prescription and the type of correction required, we dispense the following lenses.
To know which lens is best suited for your needs please consult our Optometrist at the clinic in our stores.
Brands based on Modality
Materials that We Recommend
The materials used in making contact lenses varies based on brand, modality and duration of use. The basis of all contact lenses is largely the same, which is Hydrogel and Silicone Hydrogel lenses. However some companies today, through in depth research & development, have been able to take the benefits of both materials to create a superior blend. Always purchase and wear contact lenses under the guidance of your Optometrist. If you don’t have one then please visit our store clinic to get the right diagnosis and product.
What are Hydrogel contact lenses?
Hydrogel lenses are made from gel-like, water-containing plastics called hydrogels. These soft contact lenses are very thin and pliable and conform to the surface of the eye. Introduced in the early 1970s, hydrogel lenses made contact lenses much more popular, thanks to the improved comfort and ease of use. Even though these lenses were introduced prior to Silicone Hydrogel lens and in terms of comfort it’s less superior, companies today have started exploring ways of adding features to make this material better.
Companies that use Hydrogel material are Johnson & Johnson, Alcon, Cooper Vision and Bausch & Lomb.
What are Silicone Hydrogel contact lenses?
Silicone Hydrogel lenses are better than Hydrogel lenses as it allows more oxygen to pass through from the lens to the cornea (upto 5 times more). As such wearers can use these lenses for longer hours. Silicone is the name of a group of flexible, plastic-like materials that contain silicon, carbon, oxygen and other chemicals. It is a form of plastic. Today, the basis of most widely used contact lenses is silicone hydrogel material
Companies that use Silicone Hydrogel material are Johnson & Johnson, Alcon, Cooper Vision and Bausch & Lomb.
What are Rigid Gas Permeable contact lenses?
Gas permeable contact lenses are rigid lenses made of durable plastics that allow oxygen to pass through the lens. These lenses also are called GP lenses, rigid gas permeable lenses, RGP lenses and oxygen permeable lenses. The base of these lenses are silicone but unlike silicone hydrogel contact lenses these are not soft. They remain hard even when worn and take time to get adjusted to wearing. Clarity of vision and maintenance with RGP lenses are much better than its soft counterparts, however comfort is not the best. These lenses should not be confused with the old fashioned PMMA lenses that were dispensed before hydrogel lenses were invented. RGP lenses are also used to treat patients with high astigmatism and keratoconus. These lenses should only be used if recommended by the Optometrist or if one is comfortable with using the same.
To learn more about RGP or rigid gas permeable contact lenses please get in touch with our Optometrist; we do dispense these lenses.
It is important to use the right contact lens solution with your contact lenses in order to maximise comfort. The best fit would be to use the solution which is manufactured by the company making the contact lenses. This will help with maintenance and provide the most optimum experience when worn. If you need more guidance on contact lenses and contact solutions please get in touch with the Optometrist at our stores.
