Types of Lenses
- Soft Contact Lenses: Made from a soft polymer plastic material, the contacts are very comfortable and often provide UV protection. Soft contacts are disposable and can be thrown out after a short period of time. They require less cleaning and have a lesser chance of getting an infection. Because they are soft, they can rip and tear easier than hard contacts.
- Hard Contact Lenses: Because these lenses are more rigid than soft contacts, they are more durables and less likely to tear. They are easy to take care of and maintain their shape much better. They also offer sharper vision, depending on your type of correction. They are typically last for a longer periods of time. Rigid lenses usually take a longer time to adapt.
- Bifocal Contact Lenses: These contacts help those people who need to be able to see better far away and up close. Each lens as the ability to have both prescriptions, making it possible to see better at any distance.
- Cosmetic Contact lenses: We also have Plano prescription contact lenses for those who want to use contact lenses for cosmetic purpose. These are mostly color lenses to turn brown eyes blue or vice versa. We even have theatrical contact lenses to create special effect on the wearers.
- Multifocal Lenses - One of the fears for many contact lens wearers is not being able to use their lenses when they start to experience reading difficulties after 40. The truth is you can still very much wear your contact lenses even when you start to notice some blur vision when you are reading your newspaper.
According to Dr. Pang, there are many options available.
- Lenses For Astigmatism - In the past, patients suffering from astigmatism would have to wear glasses or rigid contact lenses. But with the advances in technology, there are more treatments for astigmatism than before. In a fitting session, Dr. Pang will measure the shape of your cornea with an instrument called a topographer, depending on the shape of your cornea, he will try different types of contact lenses on your cornea in order to determine a design which will provide you the best vision and comfort.
- Contacts are a convenient and effective alternative to glasses. Unlike glasses, contacts do not change your appearance and are simply unnoticeable to the naked eye.
- They often provide better peripheral vision and are resistant to fogging or steaming from the environment.
- Contacts are ideal for sports and other physical activities.
