Contact Lens Advancements
Contact lens technology has come a long way. In recent years, there have been exciting advancements in contact lens technology that have dramatically improved lens breathability, moisture, and comfort.
In addition, we now have several contact lens options for patients with presbyopia. Presbyopia is the term used to describe the age-related changes that make it difficult to focus on objects on up close.
Multifocal contact lenses are lenses that allow you to see both near and far without the need for reading glasses or progressive lenses. This is a good choice for patients with presbyopia who want freedom from glasses.
For some patients, multifocal contact lenses are not the best option. Another solution for presbyopia is to intentionally create a difference between the two eyes, so that one eye will see better for far distance, and the other eye will see better for close up. For a long time, this was the only contact lens option for patients with both presbyopia and astigmatism.
Multifocal Toric contact lenses:
This is new contact lens technology that allows patients with astigmatism to wear multifocal contact lenses.
One of the more exciting developments of the last decade has been the advent of certain contact lenses to slow the progression of nearsightedness (or myopia) in children. These lenses can take on either a soft or rigid lens design. Currently, there are two lens designs that have been FDA approved for myopia control in the United States.
- MiSight multifocal lenses: these are soft, multifocal, daily disposable contact lenses worn during the day
- Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT): these are rigid, breathable lenses that are worn at night time and then removed in the morning.
Our doctors will be happy to discuss which option will be best for your child.
