Soft Contact Lenses– Soft lenses have seen many advances in technology in recent years, there are two main sub catagories of soft material available. The most popular and widely used contact lenses are disposable soft lenses (available in varying materials) and there are still some specialist bottled lens types in use on a regular but less frequent replacement plan.
The manufacturers work tirelessly to bring us new materials always with the aim of providing more comfortable, breathable healthier lenses in a wide range of prescriptions. Both long and short sight prescriptions are available along with Toric lenses for astigmatism and multifocal lenses for distance and near vision use combined. Disposable lenses are available as Daily throw away, two weekly and monthly replacement. These frequent replacement disposable lenses can be a more hygienic option than bottled lenses and give the patient a feel of having fresh new lenses all of the time; and of course spare lenses always ready should you need one. Disposable lenses are the ideal for sports wearers and are the best lens type for patients wishing to wear lenses on a part time basis.
It is within the category of Soft Disposables that we find the greatest advances – please click here for further information about some of our recommended brands and lens types.
