Different Types of Contact Lenses with our Portland Optometrist

Contact lenses can provide flexibility for individuals who lead active lifestyles, want cosmetic enhancements, or are uncomfortable with the way glasses feel. The team at Foster Vision can help make the determination on whether or not contact lenses are the best option. This starts with a contact lens exam.

Finding the Right Contact Lenses

A comprehensive contact lens exam will help determine the condition of your eye. It will also help determine the type of lenses that will work best for you. The exam consists of a series of tests to evaluate your vision. This includes an eye surface test to properly determine the types of contacts that are best suited for your eye. Your eyes will also be tested to determine whether or not you have enough tears to wear contact lenses with ease.

Types of Contact Lenses

As technology advancements continue to enhance the use of contact lenses, the choices and options are huge. These options also cater to lifestyle and the choice of the optometrist. These are the types of lenses that are available for contact lens wearers:

  • Disposable soft
  • Daily
  • Extended Wear
  • Spherical
  • Toric
  • Multifocal/Bifocal
  • Monovision
  • Conventional
  • Rigid Gas Permeable
  • Hard

There are also color variations available in opaque, enhancers and visibility tinted options. Once you have been fitted with contact lenses, you will wear them for a trial visit. The optometrist will give you a follow-up exam to make sure your eyes have adjusted and they fit well.
