A great alternative to wearing your glasses.
Soft contact lenses are one of the more common types of contact lenses and they can work to correct many types of refractive error including short-sightedness, long-sightedness, astigmatism and even presbyopia.
If contact lenses sound a bit daunting, note that practice and good hygiene methods mean they are a safe, easy-to-use option that are available as single-use or re-usable (monthly) lens types.
With special techniques and several options available, it's important that the optometrist fits the contact lenses especially to your eyes and lifestyle.
There are also specialty contact lenses that are used for more significant eye disorders such as; Orthokeratology lenses for progressive myopia, rigid gas permeable and scleral contact lenses for keratoconus and other corneal conditions.
If you are interested in being fit for contact lenses, book in to see one of our optometrists.
