Opticals & Contact Lenses

What are Contact Lenses ?

Contact lenses are the ideal alternative to wearing spectacles. They are made from a variety of sophisticated materials and can correct virtually any optical defect in the eye.

Why should I wear a contact lens ?

  • Cosmetically better accepted than glasses.
  • Better clarity of vision
  • Wider field of vision
  • Ideal for people with active life style
  • Safer than glasses

Are there different types of contact lenses ?

Contact lenses can be broadly classified into :

  • Regular
  • Disposable
  • Cosmetic
  • Prosthetic
  • Soft Contact Lenses
  • Semi-soft Contact Lenses
  • Hard Contact Lenses

What are soft contact lenses ?

These lenses are made from materials that flex easily. So they gently wrap around the eye giving the wearer the ultimate comfort in contact lens wear.

Can everybody wear soft contact lenses ?

These lenses are suitable for optical defects of the eye like short sight (myopia) and long sight (hypermetropia). But if one has significant cylindrical error (astigmatism) a semi soft lens will provide much crisper vision.

What is the difference between a regular and disposable soft lens ?

Disposable contact lenses are used only for a specified period of and quality of vision. time, for example a week or a month. After this they are replaced by a new pair of lenses, which ensures better hygiene.

Are cosmetic lenses advisable ?

These lenses enhance or change the color of the eye and are otherwise like any other soft lens. People who have no power and people who already use contact lenses to correct their power can wear them.

These lenses require an initial adaptation period after which they become as comfortable as soft contact lenses. The quality of vision is better than soft contact lenses, and provides better oxygen supply to the eye.

These are much similar to semi-soft lenses, but are not generally prescribed unless specifically indicated.
