Contact lenses offer several advantages over wearing eyeglasses for vision correction. They won’t fog up like glasses can, making them a better choice for people who are active or play sports. Some people also prefer how they look in contact lenses since they can provide a more natural appearance.
At True Focus Eye Care in Port Richey, we offer all major contact lens brands so you can choose the best option for your comfort, vision needs, and budget. As part of our commitment to providing you with the latest in contact lens technology, we offer an annual trial of brand-new contact lenses at no extra cost. However, if you’re happy with your current contacts, we won’t pressure you to switch to something new.
Soft contact lenses
The most common type of contact lenses is soft lenses, which are made of a soft plastic material that allows oxygen to pass through to the cornea. Soft contact lenses come in different wear periods so you can pick what works best for you.
Daily disposable soft contact lenses are designed to be worn for one day and then thrown away. They require no cleaning or storage, which makes them a convenient option for people with busy or active lifestyles. Weekly, biweekly, and monthly contact lenses are also available, depending on your needs and lifestyle.
Keep in mind that soft lenses may not be the best option for everyone. If you have keratoconus, dry eye, or other conditions that make wearing contact lenses difficult, specialty lenses may be a better fit for you.
What are specialty contact lenses?
Many people can’t wear standard contacts due to specific eye conditions or unique vision correction needs. If you’re one of those people, specialty contact lenses may be a solution! There are different types of specialty lenses available, such as scleral lenses, toric lenses, and multifocal lenses, each designed to help with specific issues.
Rigid gas permeable contact lenses
Rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses are contact lenses made from a firm, gas-permeable material that allows oxygen to pass through to the cornea. They’re often a great choice for people with astigmatism or other irregularities in the shape of their cornea. At first, it may take some time to get used to wearing RGP lenses. But with a little patience and practice, many people find that they’re comfortable and easy to wear.
Scleral contact lenses
Scleral lenses are larger in diameter than other contact lenses and rest on the sclera, or the white part of the eye. They provide excellent vision correction and can be especially helpful for people with corneal irregularities or dry eye syndrome. Because they don’t touch the cornea, they can feel more comfortable than other types of contact lenses. They also create a reservoir of tears between the lens and the front part of the eye, which can help relieve dry eye symptoms.
Cosmetic contact lenses
Cosmetic contact lenses are designed to enhance or change the color and appearance of your eyes. They come in a variety of colors and designs, from natural-looking shades to bold and vibrant hues.
Multifocal contact lenses
Multifocal contact lenses are a great option for people who need vision correction for both near and far distances. These lenses work by using different prescriptions in different areas of the lens to allow for clear vision at multiple distances.
Monovision contact lenses
Monovision contact lenses correct near and far vision by adjusting one lens for up-close vision and the other for distance. They are ideal for people with presbyopia, a condition where the eye’s lens becomes less flexible with aging, making it harder to focus on close objects. They also offer a comfortable alternative to reading glasses.
Toric contact lenses
Toric contact lenses are made to correct for astigmatism and are available in both soft and gas-permeable designs. These contact lenses have one horizontal power and one vertical power, and there’s a weight at the bottom so that they remain centered on the eyes.
