Contact Lenses

Many factors help determine whether a patient is a good candidate for contact lenses. Of course, we always consider a wide range of optical, physiologic, and cosmetic factors before recommending contacts. New technologies and new lens designs are opening up contact lenses as an option for many more people.

Contact lenses improve visual function by minimizing distortion, especially when the patient has more than a modest refractive error, or astigmatism. Myopic and hyperopic patients benefit from the increased peripheral vision. For patients with presbyopia, we might prescribe a combination of distance contact lenses and glasses for reading. Or, we might correct with monovision by prescribing a contact lens for one eye that corrects for distance vision, while the other eye wears a contact lens to correct for near vision. Various bifocal contact lenses are also available in a range of materials and designs.
