Contact lenses correct your vision and are easy to wear. Choosing the contact lenses that are right for you depends on your vision and the degree of comfort sought. There are many types of contacts to suit almost anyone. Types of contact lenses include:
Soft Contact Lenses
Soft contact lenses are the most commonly prescribed due to the fact that they are extremely comfortable. Soft contacts are now available in multi focal, for astigmatism and even for overnight wear. Soft contact lenses include
Gas Permeable Lenses
Gas-permeable lenses, or hard contact lenses offer sharper vision and can correct severe nearsightedness or astigmatism. At Winking Bee Optometry, we offer all types and brands of contact lenses specifically fitted for each individual's needs. It is very important that your lenses are fitted correctly based on your prescription, eye shape and specific needs.
Hybrid Contact Lenses
Hybrid contacts are large-diameter lenses that have a gas permeable central zone, surrounded by a peripheral zone made of soft or silicone hydrogel material. The purpose of this design is to provide the visual clarity of GP lenses, combined with wearing comfort that is comparable to soft lenses.
Orthokeratology is a reshaping treatment program designed to reduce and/or eliminate your dependency on eyeglasses or contact lenses during the day. The process reduces your refractive error by wearing corneal molding retainer therapeutic lenses that will gently and non-surgically reshape your corneas as you sleep.
