Types of Contact Lenses

Are you considering changing to contact lenses from glasses or do you just want to wear contact lenses occasionally? Maybe you’ve worn lenses in the past but are considering them again? If so, you might just have a few questions about what’s available.

  • Standard/spherical
  • Toric
  • Multifocal

Standard/spherical contact lenses

The most commonly used contact lens replicates the spherical surface of the eye; these lenses can correct myopia (short-sightedness) and hyperopia (long-sightedness). Unlike other types, spherical lenses have the same optical power throughout each lens.

Myopia, a common eye condition, causes objects in the distance to look blurred, while anything else up close can be seen clearly.

Hyperopia is a condition that results in the opposite, meaning nearby objects appear blurry, and your eyes are able to focus on distant objects, with more ease.

Toric contact lenses

Specifically to correct the common refractive error, astigmatism, toric contact lenses are designed for a comfortable fit and clear vision. Having astigmatism means that either one or both of your eyes feature an incorrectly shaped lens or cornea, and as a result prevent the light from entering your eye properly, causing blurred vision.

Multifocal contact lenses

Wearers with presbyopia can benefit from multifocal contact lenses, which are made with multiple prescriptions, built into a single lens. The eye condition presbyopia is often caused by aging, resulting in your eye’s natural lens becoming less flexible and struggling to focus on things close-up. With the help of multifocal lenses, you can experience uninterrupted vision of objects up close, at intermediate distance, or further away.
