Contact Lenses

There are a number of reasons why you might prefer contact lenses to eyeglasses: a glasses-free look, hassle-free vision correction, or wearing non-prescription sunwear and goggles. If you have a high prescription or astigmatism, contact lenses may provide more enhanced vision correction than glasses. You can even wear bifocal contact lenses as an alternative to bifocal glasses.

The doctors at Summit Eye Clinic will recommend the best contact lenses for you based on a complete eye exam and contact lens evaluation, as well as, a review of your visual needs both at work and play.

Soft Disposable Lenses

These lenses are replaced daily, biweekly, or monthly depending on the type that is fit.  Soft lenses are available for “regular,” astigmatism, and bifocal/multifocal prescriptions.  The newest soft lens material, silicone hydrogel, allows more oxygen to get through the lens to keep your eyes healthy and comfortable.  Soft lenses are often recommended for sports because they fit closer to the eye and are more difficult to dislodge.

Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses and Scleral Lenses

Made of moderately flexible plastics, RGP and Scleral lenses offer sharp vision and correct most vision problems.  They are more durable than soft contact lenses and can be easier to handle and care for, but may require a longer adaptation period to achieve good comfort.  These lenses are often used in patients who have an irregular corneal shape due to high astigmatism, keratoconus, or a corneal transplant.

Multifocal Lenses

In both soft and RGP designs, multifocal lenses offer patients both distance and near vision correction like a pair of bifocal glasses.

Colored Contact Lenses

Enhance your eye color or even change it completely. Colored contact lenses are fun and come in a variety of colors for both light and dark eyes.


Regardless of the type of contact lenses you wear, an annual eye exam and contact lens evaluation is needed to ensure the continued good health of your eyes.  Schedule an appointment today.
