There are many different kinds of “contacts,” including rigid and flexible, extended wear, disposable and planned replacement lenses, and some can be made as bifocals or in different colors. After a thorough eye exam and consultation with an experienced physician, patients who qualify for corrective lenses can discuss which type is right for them. All contact lenses require special care and cleaning and regular follow-up visits to ensure that the eyes remain healthy.
