The contact-lens industry is booming with innovation and is moving faster anyone could have imagined. Amazingly, contact lenses that were considered premium only five years ago, have left the market and been replaced by newer models and upgrades.
The most recently developed premium contact lenses are made of silicone, which allows more oxygen to penetrate the lens and the cornea. This advancement has caused lenses to not only last longer, but to also sustain the health of your eyes. Many patients who could not tolerate the comfort of contact lenses are once again trying them with new-found success.
With an excellent contact lens exam including a selection of the best contact lens for your eyes, even a person with dry eyes, or astigmatism can comfortably be fit. Additionally, newer bifocal contacts have emerged that are giving patients back the lost ability to shift their focus between near and distant objects (Presbyopia).
