Some You May Be Familiar with and Others You May Have Never Heard Of
Contact lenses are much more than just a simple clear lens to improve vision. A lot of science goes into each one and sometimes, patients need a little more help with their vision on an individual level. That means traditional Soft Contacts simply will not do, so scientifically advanced Contacts that correct for Astigmatism and Presbyopia are the out of the ordinary Contact Lenses you may have been needing for a while. Remember to take all recommendations from your Doctor before switching to a different type of Contacts.
Toric Contacts for Astigmatism
When you envision Contacts today, you think of traditional spherical Soft Contact Lenses that correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, but do not correct for Astigmatism or Presbyopia. Toric Contacts & for Astigmatism Contacts are terms that are synonymous and that generally indicate the Contact Lenses correct for the irregular curvature of the eye which is what causes uncorrected Astigmatism. When Astigmatism is uncorrected, as in traditional spherical Soft Contact Lenses, both distance and near vision are blurry. Toric Contacts correct for Astigmatism thus eliminating the distortion caused by irregular non-spherical curvature of the eye. Toric Contacts that correct for Astigmatism are now much improved and can correct as high as -2.25 or more of Cylinder like 1-Day Acuvue MOIST for ASTIGMATISM & BioTrue ONEday for ASTIGMATISM.
However, these Contacts have greatly improved in both design and material used to provide optimal vision correction without compromise. New materials even allow for more oxygen to pass through these Soft Contacts to maintain a more comfortable wearer experience. After your eye exam and Contacts exam, you Doctor can determine which type of lenses are most suited to correct your amount of Astigmatism to make your vision as clear as possible.
Multifocal Contacts for Presbyopia
Typically, as the eyes age the ability to focus up close is diminished which is called Presbyopia. Bifocal Glasses were the original correction used to correct this problem. When Contacts were developed, they originally corrected only for correcting myopia (nearsighted) and hyperopia (farsighted). Monovision Contact Lens correction was originally used to correct Presbyopia in Contacts. Monovision Contact Lens correction is still used today which uses Contacts to correct one eye for distance vision and one eye for near vision. The problem with Monovision Contacts correction is that it causes problems with depth perception at distance and clarity is reduced at near since both eyes are not being used at the same time for maximum visual acuity.
Multifocal Contacts including Biotrue ONEday for PRESBYOPIA, DAILIES AquaComfort Plus MULTIFOCAL & DAILIES TOTAL 1 MULTIFOCAL Contacts correct both eyes for distance and both eyes for near and are some of the most common Multifocal Soft Contacts. The most common way Multifocal Soft Contact Lenses are designed are that the center of the Contacts is for distance vision when you look straight ahead, and the peripheral part of the Contact Lens is for near as you typically look down.
