Specialty Contact Lenses Q & A

What are specialty contact lenses?

Specialty contact lenses, including hard and soft contacts, are made of plastics and other special materials. You can wear contact lenses as an alternative to glasses to correct the following vision problems:

  • Nearsightedness
  • Farsightedness
  • Astigmatism
  • Multiple vision issues

Your optometrist lets you know which specialty contact lenses best match your unique needs based on your lifestyle and the type of vision problem. They help you achieve perfect vision.

What are examples of specialty contact lenses?

There are numerous specialty contact lenses available at Classic Vision Care. Examples include:

Hard contacts

Hard contacts, including rigid gas-permeable lenses, are made of plastics and other materials. These contacts firmly hold their shape but allow oxygen to flow through the lens to your eye. Your optometrist might recommend hard contact lenses if you have astigmatism or allergies that create protein deposits on soft contact lenses.

Soft contacts

Soft contacts are made of flexible materials. Some are designed for daily wear, in which case you remove the lenses before going to sleep. Other soft contacts are safe to wear while you sleep but must be cleaned weekly. Toric lenses are useful if you have astigmatism. Colored contacts are available to change the perceived color of your eyes.

Ortho-k lenses

CRT® ortho-k (orthokeratology) gas-permeable contacts can treat farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism. You wear the contacts while you sleep to gently reshape your eye’s cornea and correct your vision, so you can go contact-free during the day.

Duette contacts

SynergEyes® Duette hybrid specialty contacts combine hard and soft lens technology into one contact lens for superior vision correction. Duette lenses result in enhanced vision and comfort, even if you have astigmatism or multiple vision issues.
