Types of Contacts
There are two major categories of contact lenses: Soft Contact Lenses and Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) contact lenses. Regardless of the type of contacts that you are interested in, they require a thorough examination and fitting and a valid prescription. Within these two major categories are a number of types of lenses for solving different vision problems. These include:
Many patients are simply unaware of the need for proper fitting and prescription of these lenses and have purchased decorative contact lenses from beauty salons, record stores, video stores, flea markets, convenience stores, beach shops and the Internet. Buying contact lenses without a prescription is dangerous!
Orthokeratology, commonly called ortho-k, is a method used to correct myopia (nearsightedness) by wearing rigid gas permeable contact lenses overnight so that no vision correction is needed during daytime hours.
