Contact Lenses, Katy Optiks

Contact lenses are more popular than ever before. They are a great choice for anyone looking to correct their vision without having to undergo LASIK surgery. And, they are an alternative to wearing eyeglasses every day.

Types of Contact Lenses at Katy Optiks

At Katy Optiks, we provide a wide range of contact lens options. Here are some of the types of lenses you should know about:

  • Soft Lenses: These lenses are generally more comfortable to wear and stay in place well, making adaptation to them easy. The flexible plastic is combined with water which allows oxygen to transmit through the contact lens to the cornea. This attribute leads to comfort and helps maintain eye health.
  • Silicone Hydrogel: These contact lenses allow more oxygen to pass through the lens to the cornea than the standard soft contact lenses. They have quickly become the most popular option for contact lens wearers in the United States.
  • Gas Permeable Lenses: These contact lenses are rigid but porous and allow oxygen to pass through them. They are typically more comfortable than the traditional hard lenses and are available with coating treatments to enhance their comfort.
  • Hard Lenses: This type of contact lens is extremely durable and simple to care for. They can get scratched and can be difficult to achieve eye centration with.

Throughout a lifetime, most eye care issues will remain unchanged; however, others may evolve or vary with increasing age or changes in lifestyle. Some teens, young adults, and many professionals may experience tired eyes from hours of study or work in front of a computer. This is often caused by a reduced blink rate leading to reduced new tears formation which then results in superficial dry eyes or “tired eyes.”. Middle-aged adults may develop presbyopia (the need for reading glasses). Seniors may develop dry eyes, glaucoma or cataracts.

Today’s contact lens technology address enhanced vision care and correction for all ages. Visit with our contact lens technician to determine which contact lenses will provide optimum fit, eye health, and visual acuity.
