Contact Lens & Specialty Lens Q & A

What are contact and specialty lenses?

Contact lenses correct your vision so that you don’t need eyeglasses. The lenses fit directly over the center of your eye, covering the cornea, iris, and pupil.

Better Vision Eyecare’s optometrists specialize in contact lens fitting. They offer a complete range of contact lenses, including ones for people with specialized needs.


What kinds of contact lenses are available?

Better Vision Eyecare’s contact lens range includes:

Soft contact lenses

Soft contact lenses are gellike and mold to the shape of your eye. They’re the most common kind, offering comfortable vision improvement for patients with myopia (nearsightedness), farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia (age-related sight changes).

Gas-permeable contact lenses

Gas-permeable lenses are rigid. They’re suitable for people with astigmatism (poor sight caused by a misshapen cornea) and those who suffer from dry eye.

Multifocal lenses

Multifocal contact lenses have varying strengths that correct near and farsightedness.

Toric lenses

If you have astigmatism, you need toric lenses. These lenses are soft and mold to your abnormally shaped cornea.


What specialized contact lenses might I need?

Scleral lenses

Scleral contacts are gas-permeable lenses that cover the entire corneal surface, resting on the sclera (the white of your eye). Scleral lenses overcome the problem of irregular corneas caused by conditions like keratoconus.

They’re also suitable for people with severe dry eye who can’t wear regular contact lenses.

Scleral lenses leave a space between your cornea and the back of the lens. This space is a fluid reservoir, keeping your eyes lubricated and comfortable.

Hybrid lenses

Hybrid contact lenses consist of a rigid, gas-permeable center with soft edges. Hybrids are suitable for the same sight problems as soft contact lenses. They also treat keratoconus, a condition causing your cornea to bulge and take on a cone shape.
