New Contact Lens Designs & Materials
With each year, more and more Americans are wearing contact lenses. One major reason for this increasingly popularity is the development of new contact lens types constructed from modern materials. Progressive technology enabled the manufacture of lenses for many eye conditions and vision prescriptions that couldn’t be fit with contacts in the past. With so many revolutionary advances, it’s important to visit an eye care professional regularly for contact lens updates.
At Vaske Vision Care, our professional optometrist stays current with all the latest contact lens news! No matter what vision condition you have – even if you’re considered hard-to-fit with contacts – Dr. Michael Vaske will perform a thorough contact lens eye exam to determine the best contemporary lens for your needs.
New Contact Lenses Worth Knowing About
Recently, the shining stars of contact lens updates have been state-of-the-art silicone hydrogel materials, enhanced daily disposables, soft toric lenses for astigmatism, and effective multifocal designs. All of these lenses provide a higher level of patient comfort, clearer vision for many common vision prescriptions, and improved eye health safety. Dr. Vaske is knowledgeable about the newly available types and brands; visit our Parker, CO, office for more information!
Silicone Hydrogel Lenses
At present, about 75% of all contact lens wearers enjoy these soft lenses. With a high water content (more than 60%), silicone hydrogel soft contacts are extremely comfortable and fit the cornea better than older materials.
Soft Toric Lenses
Astigmatism refers to a problem with the curvature of your eye structure, which causes difficulty with focusing. Soft toric lenses are an efficient way to treat many cases of astigmatism.
Multifocal Contact Lenses
Everyone with presbyopia who dislikes the idea of wearing reading glasses will be thrilled to wear multifocal contacts! These specially engineered soft lenses can correct near and distant vision.
Advanced Daily Disposables
The number of disposable contact lens choices can be overwhelming! Many premium versions of these popular soft lenses are currently on the market and available in our optical store, located in Parker, CO. Our eye doctor reads the contact lens updates, and we’ll fill you in on the pros and cons of each specific type.
