Daily disposable lenses
No longer do you need to worry about carrying around cleaning solutions or taking the time to clean and store your lenses. Every day you can wake up and use a brand lens - every night, throw them away - the ultimate in convenience and superb comfort. Daily disposable lenses can be worn on an occasional basis or on every day of the week.
Two weekly disposable lenses
Two weekly lenses are worn during the day and removed, cleaned and stored overnight. Following two weeks of wear the lenses are discarded and replaced with a new pair. Cleaning regimes are now more simple and effective than ever and two weekly lenses are a great choice for patients intending to wear their contact lenses for the majority of the time, with spectacle wear as a backup. An ideal choice of lens too for the patients whose prescription is not yet available in a daily lens type.
Monthly lenses are worn during the day and removed, cleaned and stored overnight. Following one month of wear the lenses are discarded and replaced with a new pair. Contact lens cleaning techniques can be more involved which is understandable given the nature of this lens having to last longer.
Toric lenses for astigmatism
Patients with astigmatism (rugby shaped eyes) have historically been fitted with rigid gas permeable lenses. While these lenses are still available and continue to be the best choice lens for some, the advent of new lens technology have now allowed patients with astigmatism to be fitted with soft toric lenses to give reliably clear and comfortable vision with greater convenience and flexibility in wearing schedules. Toric soft lenses are available in daily, two weekly and monthly wearing modalities and in a range of lens materials.
Just as varifocal spectacle lenses provide clear focusing for a range of distances, varifocal contact lenses provide just the same, eliminating the need to use reading glasses in conjunction with distance contact lenses. The presbyopic patient can be truly ‘spectacle free.’
