Contact lenses have made rapid advances the past few years. The materials and design are different from past generations of lenses. If you gave up wearing contact lenses for any of many reasons, let Dr. Schwartz review the changes and how they may help you. Most all contact lenses are silicone hydrogel, which offer more comfort and longer daily wearing time.
Other than contacts for near and farsightedness, Dr. Schwartz has many designs in bifocal and astigmatism (also called toric) contact lenses.
Daily disposable contact lenses are designed to wear one day and discard. They are very helpful for patients with hectic schedules, allergies, and dry eyes. The 1-day daily disposable contacts are great for part time contact lens wearers who want a comfortable, trouble free lens available for occasional wear, special occasions, camping, vacation and sports. No solution purchases may save enough money to make up for the small difference in cost of the dailies.
