CONTACT LENS SERVICES
We maintain a huge inventory of contact lenses in every design to fit anyone, including:
Toric Lenses for Astigmatism
Most toric lenses are soft lenses that have different powers in different meridians of the lens. That means that the contacts must remain rotationally stable and only move vertically when blinking. Some toric lenses are weighted slightly at the bottom in order to keep the lens from rotating.
Multifocal Lenses for Presbyopia
Today, a number of mulitfocal lens options are available that offer clear vision at any distance. Some have a bifocal design with two distinct lens powers and others offer a more natural vision transition.
Daily Disposable Contacts
Silicone Hydrogel Contact Lenses
Popular brands of silicone hydrogel contact lenses include: Acuvue Oasys , Air Optix Aqua, Biofinity and PureVision2.
Extremely High Prescription Lenses
Eagan Eye Clinic strives to provide the best vision for our patients. As contact lens technology advances, we help provide many suitable options for our patients.
Cosmetic Colored Lenses
Colored contact lenses are considered a medical device by the FDA and require a prescription from your optometrist. If you’re thinking about colored contact lenses, your optometrist can help you select the right type of colored contacts depending on your eye color, quality of vision and desired appearance. Colored contacts should never be shared with anyone.
Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses (RGP or GP)
Post Surgical Problem Cases
Gas permeable lenses are also used to correct vision problems after corneal transplant surgery, including irregular astigmatism that cannot be corrected with prescription eyeglasses.
Problem Lenses for Keratoconus
In some cases, a soft contact lens is worn under the gas permeable lens for greater comfort. This technique is called “piggybacking.” Another option for some patients is a hybrid contact lens that has a GP center, surrounded by a soft outside edge.
