Types of Contact Lenses
Daily Disposable Lenses
With daily disposable lenses, there’s no more cleaning and putting your lenses away at the end of the day—they can be simply discarded or recycled through our Every Contact Counts program. Daily disposables comprise the newest contact lens technology in breathability and wearability. There is no healthier lens option, as every single use provides maximum oxygen to the cornea and reduced risk of infections.
Most daily disposable lenses are soft contacts made from silicone hydrogel, a material that lets oxygen pass through and helps keep the eye healthy.
People with astigmatism can wear contact lenses. For this condition, we offer toric lenses.
Toric lenses contain different powers in different parts of the lens, so their positioning on the eye must be just right. They are equipped with special design features to help them sit properly on the eye—like weighting at the bottom of the lens. Toric lenses come in soft or rigid gas-permeable varieties.
If you’re looking for a style statement, changing your eye colour is one way to go. Coloured contact lenses alter your eye colour or enhance your existing colour. They come in prescription and non-prescription varieties.
Even if you don’t need vision correction, it’s important that you be properly fitted for contacts. They are medical devices. Safety and comfort depend on appropriate fit.
Glasses come with multiple powers in each lens, and contact lenses do too. Multifocal contact lenses help people who need vision correction at multiple distances. These lenses come in bifocals, with 2 powers per lens, or multifocals, with several powers per lens.
Lenses for Dry Eye
Dry eye does not always mean you are excluded from contact lens wear. We are proud to offer options for people with dry eye—and a dry eye clinic to assist you in finding relief too!
Hybrid Contact Lenses
Hybrid lenses combine the clear vision of a rigid gas-permeable lens with the comfort of a soft contact lens. They are available in regular or multifocal varieties. We offer Duette lenses by SynergEyes.
Scleral lenses are rigid gas-permeable lenses that vault over the cornea and rest on the whites of the eyes (the sclera) rather than sitting on the cornea as contact lenses normally do.
These lenses can help people with keratoconus wear contact lenses. Keratoconus causes cone-shaped corneas, which can make it difficult to wear contact lenses.
Scleral lenses may also benefit people who have highly-irregular corneas after laser surgery, corneal grafts, radial keratotomy (RK), or corneal scarring.
Orthokeratology, commonly known as ortho-k, is a method of myopia control. These lenses can also be worn by adults as an alternative to LASIK to achieve freedom from glasses and contacts worn during the day, without the risks or permanence of surgery. Learn more about ortho-k lenses on our Myopia Control page.
Rigid Gas-Permeable Lenses
Rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses are more firm than soft contact lenses. They resemble the hard contact lenses of the past. Many people find they offer clearer, more crisp vision because they keep their shape when you blink.
