Contacts are a great option for people who don’t like the idea of wearing glasses or just prefer a more discreet solution to better vision. They also move with your eyes and don’t fog up like glasses. They’re an ideal option for sports and other physical activities as well. We offer all types of contact lenses including RGP (Rigid gas-permeable contacts), extended-wear contacts, daily-wear soft lenses, and medically necessary contacts. We also have colored contact options.
Rigid Gas-Permeable (RGP) Contacts
RGP contacts are made of slightly flexible plastics that allow oxygen to pass through to the eyes. They provide excellent vision. They require a short adaptation period and are considered comfortable to wear. They’re able to correct most vision problems and are available for myopia control and corneal refractive therapy. These lenses are available in tints and bifocals.
Some disadvantages include requiring consistent wear to maintain a successful adaption. They’re known to slip off the center of the eye more easily that other types. Regular office visits for follow-up care is necessary.
Daily-Wear Soft Lenses
Daily-wear soft lenses are made of soft, flexible plastic that allows oxygen to pass through the eyes. They have a very short adaptation period and are more comfortable and less difficult to dislodge than RGP lenses. They’re available in multiple colors and multifocals. They are also available in daily, 2-week and monthly modalities. These types of lenses are an ideal choice for active lifestyles.
Medically Necessary Contacts
Medically necessary contact lenses are non-elective lenses that are prescribed when certain medical conditions will not allow vision correction through regular eyeglasses. Such medical conditions include:
- Aphakia – the removal of absence of the lens of the eye due to injury, surgery, or abnormality.
- Anisometropia – a refractive condition where the eyes have unequal focus or optical strength.
- Keratoconus – an eye disease that causes structural damage to the eye’s cornea.
Some insurance companies that do not cover elective contact lenses will cover medically necessary contacts. Check with your provider.
