Contact lenses are a popular alternative to glasses for correcting refractive error. They allow for a full field of vision in multiple environments which can help you see clearly on bright sunny days, cloudy days, and night time driving. Contacts are used for myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism, and presbyopia (age-related vision decline).
Contacts are an optimum choice for individuals who desire comfort in sports, outdoor activities, and everyday life. Soft contacts are most popular due to their comfort and simplicity of care. You can choose from multiple types of contacts which vary from daily to monthly disposal. Hawaii Eye Institute will help you determine which type of contact lenses best suits your lifestyle and visual needs. You can choose from Single Vision, Monovision, and Bi-Focal lenses.
Single vision lenses are meant for those individuals who need visual assistance with distance vision or near vision. Like glasses, each contact lens is matched to the prescription of each eye.
Monovision lenses can help presbyopic individuals by reducing the need for reading glasses. With monovision, each eye has different lens requirements. Your dominant eye will use a contact lens for distance vision while your non-dominant eye will use a lens for near vision. With both eyes working together, typically, the sight is clear and comfortable without strain from either eye.
Bifocal lenses are also designed to provide improved vision for those individuals who have presbyopia. Bi-focal contact lenses have two prescriptions in the same lens to create alternating vision.
