A contact lens is a thin, curved lens placed on the film of tears that covers the surface of your eye. The lens itself is naturally clear, but is often given the slightest tinge of color to make them easier for wearers to handle. Today’s contact lenses are either hard or soft. Most people wear the latter form now, but it wasn’t too long ago that contact lenses were even glass blown!
In order to keep your eyes and vision in peak performance and health, each pair of contact lenses is manufactured and prescribed for a certain wear schedule, and to be replaced after a certain amount of time.
Lenses for astigmatism are referred to as Toric lenses. Astigmatism is a common condition that can result in blurred or distorted vision at all distances, varying with the amount of astigmatism.
Presbyopia is an age-related condition. As you reach your 40's or 50's, you may find it harder to focus on nearby objects like menus, books or magazine print, especially in low light. Multifocal lenses can help.
