Many people prefer contact lenses to eyeglasses because of the convenience they provide. At Opti-Care, we offer different types of contact lenses, with each kind designed to address specific eye care needs.
Soft Contact Lenses
Soft contact lenses are made from flexible, gel-like plastic. They are built with a water-containing material, also known as hydrogel, that allows oxygen to pass through your cornea, maintaining your visual comfort. They are easier to apply on your eyes and they stay in place longer than other types of contact lenses.
Gas-Permeable (GP) Contact Lenses
Also known as rigid gas-permeable contact lenses, GPs are often made from firm, durable plastic that allows oxygen entry to your eyes. Unlike soft contact lenses, they do not have a water reservoir, which means they are less likely to harbor bacteria. Your optometrist shares they also last longer and retain their shape better, ensuring your lasting visual clarity and comfort.
Hybrid Contact Lenses
Hybrid contact lenses combine the best features of soft and GP lenses. Their rigid center provides crisp vision, while their soft, silicone, hydrogel outer lens skirt maintains your visual comfort. They also allow oxygen transmission and tear exchange for your optimum visual health.
These are just some of the contact lenses we offer. Your eye doctor can recommend which type would best address your eye care needs and suit your lifestyle during an eye exam.
