Contacts are still a relatively recent development in vision correction. They became popular because they do not change cosmetic appearance and because they provide better peripheral vision than glasses. They also allow more freedom during recreational and sporting activities.
Contacts Instead of Bifocals
Contact lenses that help correct both your near and distance vision, called bifocal contact lenses, are available in many different varieties to suit different lifestyles and eye health requirements.
Because they're soft, they're especially comfortable, even if you've never worn contact lenses before. And they'll stay on your eyes comfortably, even when you're playing tennis, golf, or other sports.
Contacts for Astigmatism
People with astigmatism once had limited options. But today, thanks to toric soft contact lenses, people with astigmatism can enjoy the convenience and comfort associated with soft disposable lenses.
These lenses are different from traditional toric lenses. Because they're the first toric contact lenses that:
- Are designed to be replaced once a month, so your lenses always feel clean and fresh
- May eliminate the need for weekly enzyme cleaning
- Give you 12 pairs of lenses for about what you'd spend on one pair of traditional toric contacts
- Come with spare pairs in case you lose or tear a lens
