Benefits of Contacts from our Phoenix Ophthalmologists
Contact lenses from our Phoenix ophthalmologists offer a variety of benefits. One of the biggest benefits is a wider field of clear vision. Since contact lenses fit over your cornea, they move with your eyes, which means you have clear peripheral vision as well as straight-ahead vision.
Contact lenses can be worn by individuals with dry eye, keratoconus, astigmatisms, presbyopia and nearsightedness and farsightedness. Contact lenses from our Phoenix eye doctors can be worn while playing sports, and regular sunglasses can be worn in conjunction with the lenses. Contacts do not fog with changes in temperature or humidity, and they get wet in the rain, and they won’t clash with various outfits.
Types of Contact Lenses in Phoenix
Our eye doctors offer several different types of contact lenses in Phoenix, including daily wear, disposable and extended wear lenses.
- Hard – Hard contacts are made from a rigid material. They can require up to a two-week adjustment period. However, they offer clearer vision, and they offer vision correction for a wider-variety of refractive errors when compared to soft contacts.
- Hybrid – Hybrid lenses have a hard inner portion and a soft outer portion. These lenses offer great vision correction and improved comfort when compared to hard contacts.
- Multifocal – Multifocal lenses can be designed with two or three different powers. These work well for individuals with presbyopia.
- Scleral – Scleral lenses are designed so that they rest on the white part of the eye while vaulting completely over the cornea. These lenses are ideal for individuals with severely irregularly shaped corneas and dry eye.
- Soft – Soft contacts are extremely popular for their comfort, ease of cleaning and ability to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and some degrees of astigmatism.
- Toric – Toric lenses are designed for individuals who have an astigmatism. These lenses are weighted on the bottom so that they do not rotate in the eye.
