Contact Lens Information
A contact lens is a medical device that, when placed on the eye, can correct short-sightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. They can also be worn for cosmetic (changing the colour of your eyes) or therapeutic (bandage contact lens after corneal injury) reasons.
The prescribing of contact lenses is restricted to eye-care practitioners. The best type of lens will be prescribed based on your visual requirements, eye structure and tear quality.
Most popular contact lenses at the moment:
- Soft gel-like silicon lenses
- Daily disposable lenses – discard after a single day of wear, no cleaning routine
- Monthly disposable lenses – discard after 30 days of wear
- Cosmetic contact lenses to change the appearance of the eye
