Which vision conditions can contact lenses correct?
Almost anyone can wear contacts. By design, modern contact lenses address a wide range of vision needs.

If you have a damaged cornea or extremely high astigmatism, you may have difficulty wearing contact lenses.
Which type of contact lenses is best for me?
If you’ve never worn contacts, you’ve tried contacts in the past without success, or you’re interested in exploring different options, the team at Optic Gallery Fort Apache can help you find the best type and brand of contacts to meet your individual needs after a comprehensive eye exam.
Some of the contact lens options available at Optic Gallery Fort Apache include:
Soft contact lenses
Daily disposable lenses, extended wear lenses, and other soft contact lens options offer comfort and convenience. Soft contacts that are color tinted can change the color of your eyes, even if you don’t need vision correction.
These weighted contacts are designed to address the irregularities in eye shape that cause astigmatism. The weight keeps the lens centered over your eye so you won’t experience the blurry or double vision that occurs with astigmatism. Both soft contacts and rigid gas permeable lenses have toric options.
Rigid gas permeable lenses
These lenses can correct higher cases of astigmatism. They’re also easy to take care of and durable, making them a practical choice for many people.
Scleral lenses can address dry eyes, cornea problems such as keratoconus, and several other eye conditions. They are larger than traditional contacts and contain a permeable pocket of artificial tears that acts as a cushion between the lens and the surface of your eye.
Multifocal or monovision lenses
Like many adults, you may find that, as you age, you have difficulty reading and focusing at close range. Like bifocal or progressive eyeglasses, multifocal and monovision contact lenses allow you to focus near or far without needing to change lenses for reading, working on a computer, or driving.
