TYPES OF CONTACT LENSES

The soft lenses are available in many forms. They can be worn as daily wear (removed at night), extended wear, flexible wear or new continuous wear which can be worn for a month at a time. They come as disposable lenses that are replaced daily to monthly. Planned Exchange lenses are used for several months before being replaced. Other lenses have an indefinite life span. In addition to standard spherical lenses, there are toric lenses that compensate for astigmatism (distortion), and bifocal lenses.

In addition to a wide selection of soft contacts, we have expertise in gas permeable types. These lenses offer advantages in many cases and often perform better. Dr. Guhl is one of the few practitioners in the state who are trained in WAVE design software. Using this powerful technology, a custom fit lens that matches the shape of your eye accurately is available. This complex computer program allows more control over the design of your lenses. Instead of three parameters, over twenty can be controlled to improve comfort, fit and performance. This is particularly useful in complex fits such as for bifocals or disease.
