There have been enormous advances in Soft Contact lens technology and design to allow us to fit our patients with almost unlimited options.   SeeClearly Vision takes pride in keeping up with all these modalities and offers our patients the wide range of lenses available.
  
The addition of silicone to the lenses which makes them transmit more Oxygen to the eye has made lenses more comfortable and healthier to wear. Daily disposable lenses are now available to correct the common refractive errors, including astigmatism.  They are increasingly popular as the price of the lenses has dropped to affordable levels.  These lenses provide the safest way to correct refractive errors and make it possible to fit patients who are allergic or sensitive to chemicals found in cleaning and disinfecting solutions required to care for other lenses. 

For those who are faced with the need for reading glasses, there is exciting Soft Lens news. There are multifocal, progressive Soft Lenses which act like progressive addition glasses. Presently, we can fit patients with such lenses who also need to correct astigmatism, as well as their other refractive errors. You can be assured that we will, after a complete eye exam, advise you of the alternatives and fit you with the best lenses for your eyes.
