If you’ve made the decision to get contact lenses, you’re probably wondering what the best type is for you. Here are they types of contacts we provide, and their respective pros and cons:
Soft contact lenses contain some 25% to 79% water. They are easily to adaptable to your eyes and quite comfortable. With a soft contact lens in your eyes you will barely feel anything, however, you should be more careful in handling them and they have to be replaced more frequently.
Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses
These lenses take time to adapt to your eyes but have much greater resistance against deposit buildup. With RGP you are supposed to get sharper vision and enhanced durability. This type of lens is more expensive, but you pay for the extra quality.
Daily Disposable Lenses
If you want convenience, go for disposable contact lenses. The cleaning and disinfection procedures are very simple and there’s no need for long term upkeep. While it’s more convenient to put new lenses in every day, it may be more cost effective to have reusable lenses.
Tonic Soft Lenses
These lenses are claimed to correct astigmatism. You can get these types both in daily disposable or reusable. You may be required to visit the doctor’s clinic more than once to get a perfect fitting.
Color contact lenses
Then there are those colored lenses that are mainly used for cosmetic purposes. You can get mainly four different types of cored contact lenses, namely, visibility tints, enhancement tints, opaque color tints and light-filtering tints. If you have no vision problem, you can take the ‘Plano’ form of colored contact lenses that do not make any visual correction. You can also get them as disposable or frequent replacement lens.
