Continuous Wear Contacts

You may have heard of the latest in extended and continuous wear contact – Silicone Hydrogel. These contact lenses are superior to traditional hydogel lenses because silicone allows more oxygen to pass through the lens because it is oxygen permeable.

The benefits to wearers include comfort and convenience. Silicone hydrogel contact lenses contain less water and deliver more oxygen to the eye than traditional hydrogel lenses. As a result, they aren’t as prone to causing dehydration. For some people who wear their lenses for long days, this can mean better end-of-day comfort and allow for overnight wear. Some brands of silicone hydrogel lenses are approved for 30 days of continuous wear.

If you are interested in exploring continuous wear contacts please visit our eye care clinic for a contact lens evaluation and fitting. It is important for the optometrist to observe the lenses on your eyes to make certain the fit is correct. If you are a candidate for continuous wear lenses, you will be provided with a prescription.
