Contact Lenses Q & A

Are contact lenses right for me?

If you’re having problems with your vision and have never worn contact lenses or regular eyeglasses before, you may wonder which is the better option. While everyone has different needs, contacts offer many benefits over traditional glasses.

Some advantages include:

  • Easier to wear during sports
  • Wider field of view
  • Invisible to others

Before you’re fitted for lenses, Dr. Toyzer exams your eyes thoroughly. If you’re still not sure if contact lenses are right for you, he is happy to discuss your needs and preferences.

There are a variety of contact lenses available that are affordable, comfortable, and easy to wear.

What type of contact lenses are offered?

Because there are so many different factors that affect vision and eye health, The Eye Doctors offer a wide variety of contact lenses. All of them are designed to improve your eyesight, comfort, and personal style.

You can choose from some of the most trusted contact lens brands, including CIBA Air, Optix, Acuvue, Proclear, Fresh Look, and Bausch & Lomb.

There are also different types of lenses designed for different preferences:

Regular contact lenses

Traditional contact lenses are affordable and work for most people. Types are: 

  • Rigid gas-permeable (RGP): durable lenses that allow oxygen to filter through the contacts
  • Daily-wear soft: you wear these for one day, then replace them with new ones
  • Extended-wear disposable: you wear these all day and overnight for several weeks

Specialty contact lenses

Some patients need or want specialty lenses that offer extra features, such as:

  • Ortho-K: lenses are only worn at night to reshape your cornea, correcting your vision for up to two days without daytime glasses or contact lenses
  • Scleral: lenses that extend beyond the cornea all the way to the sclera, or white of the eye, helping hydrate the eye
  • Hybrid: lenses that have benefits of hard and soft contact lenses, providing top-quality vision correction and comfort

What can I expect after getting contact lenses?

If you’ve never worn contact lenses, you might have an adjustment period at first. Most patients, however, find contacts convenient and comfortable.
