All about contact lenses

A soft contact lens is a hydrophilic (water-loving) disc that floats on your cornea, the central colored portion of your eye. Like prescription glasses, a contact lens is specifically shaped to focus light into the retina of your eye to create a sharp, clear image. But unlike glasses which you can see over, under or sideways, compromising your peripheral vision, contact lenses cover your cornea, correcting your entire field of vision.

Contact lenses are broadly divided

Spherical lenses for

Myopia:

Trouble seeing objects at a distance clearly

Hypermetropia:

Blurred vision when seeing nearby objects and objects at distance usually appear clear

Toric lenses for

Astigmatism:

Comes in addition to myopia/ hypermetropia or independent of these two conditions. This happens when the cornea or the internal lens is not perfectly spherical.

Multifocal lenses for

Presbyopia:

Blurred vision for nearby objects or while reading after certain age (40+)

Daily:

Individual blister packs for one-day use. Lenses are Hassle-free and low-maintenance. It has to be disposed at the end of the day.

Monthly:

To be used within 30 days from the opening of blister pack. At the end of every day, remove, clean, rinse and disinfect. These lenses are more economical for everyday use"
