contact lenses

At the Moran Eye Center we provide many contact lens options that include a variety of brands and schedules for wearing your contact lenses. Contact lenses can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. Many people who wear glasses can also successfully wear contacts. Don’t hesitate to schedule your eye exam for contact lenses today.

Types of Contact Lenses

Contacts can be made from a number of different materials and fall into either the soft or rigid category. Soft lenses are a good fit for many people. Rigid or hard lenses generally provide sharper vision, especially for people with high refractive errors or larger degrees of astigmatism. Hard lenses may take longer to get used to, but once the eyes are used to them both soft and hard lenses can be worn comfortably.

  • Soft disposable lenses
  • Soft disposable toric lenses (lenses that correct astigmatism)
  • Rigid gas permeable lenses
  • Bifocal contacts
  • Monovision lenses

We also offer prescription colored contact lenses and colored contacts for those who simply want to change their eye color.

Replacing Your Contact Lenses

Contact lenses can be worn on a variety of schedules. Some are designed to be removed daily, while others can be worn overnight. They can be replaced on a daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly basis. You and our specialist will determine a schedule that works best for you.
