Understanding Types of Contacts
Contact lenses are available in different types and varieties. Finding the right lenses depends on your lifestyle and your vision correction needs.
Lenses by Type
CONTACT LENSES ARE USUALLY CATEGORISED BY LENGTH OF WEAR.
Lenses by Condition
CONTACT LENSES FOR NEAR OR FAR SIGHTEDNESS
When you’re nearsighted (myopic), distant objects appear blurry. When you’re farsighted (hyperopic), near and occasionally distant objects appear blurry. These are the two most common conditions that call for vision correction.
CONTACT LENSES FOR ASTIGMATISM
Lenses for astigmatism are referred to as Toric lenses. Astigmatism is a common condition that can result in blurred or distorted vision at all distances, varying with the amount of astigmatism.
CONTACT LENSES FOR PRESBYOPIA
Presbyopia is an age-related condition. Don’t worry, it happens to everyone. As you reach your 40s or 50s, you may find it harder to focus on nearby objects like menus, books or magazine print, especially in low light. Multifocal contact lenses can help.
