Fit your eyes and lifestyle with specialty contact lenses
There are many types of specialty contact lenses for astigmatism, presbyopia, high myopia or hyperopia, keratoconus and other eye conditions. Each contact lens type has advantages and disadvantages.
We carry dozens of different designs and brands, bringing you the
best that science has made available within your budget.
Soft lenses are made from softer more pliable materials that conform to the shape of the eye. Soft contact lenses allow oxygen to pass through to the cornea. They may be easier to adjust to and are more comfortable but may not provide the best, most stable vision.
These are referred to as GP (gas permeable) lenses and are made from a more durable rigid material that provides crisper clearer vision. The lenses tend to be smaller than soft lenses and cover only 70-80% of the cornea.
Hybrid lenses are a combination of soft and rigid lens materials. They have a rigid GP lens center and a soft skirt that drapes over the scleral (or white part of the eye). These lenses offer
vision benefits of a GP lens while providing comfort similar to a soft lens.
These lenses are used primarily for irregular cornea conditions as an alternative to traditional soft, rigid or hybrid lenses. They are designed to vault completely over the corneal condition and land on the white part of the eye, called the sclera.
