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.

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.

We offer the following types of contact lenses:

  • 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.

Do You Wear Soft Contact Lenses? Prevent Corneal Neovascularization

Your eye consists of delicate tissues that must be treated carefully. When you wear soft contact lenses, they are medical devices that can affect these tissues if worn improperly. Because soft lenses act somewhat like sponges, to absorb and hold water, they can also hold debris and microscopic organisms. These can build up in a soft lens as it ages and can cause redness and irritation to the eye.

Replacing your soft lenses as often as recommended by your doctor will help keep your eyes healthy and reduce your risk for developing serious infections. For more information, ask about healthy lens wear.
