Contact lenses are a good alternative to eyeglasses. In many cases, they offer sharper vision, better aesthetic result, wider field of view and greater comfort and functionality.

They are especially suitable for those who:

  • have high myopia, hyperopia and/or astigmatism
  • the differance in the degrees of refractive abnormality (myopia or hyperopia) between the two eyes is large
  • engage in professions or engage in sports that obstruct glasses
  • have keratoconus

But they are contraindicated:

  • people who use a computer for many hours
  • people with chronic eye diseases or allergies such as conjuctivitis, blepharitis, etc.
  • when there is severe dry eye or tenderness
  • when the working environment is very dusty, it is very dry or there are high temperatures

Types of contact lenses

Soft contact lenses:
Soft contact lenses can be conventional which are replaced annually, monthly, weekly and daily.

Silicone hydrogel lenses:
Silicone-hydrogel contact lenses have the advantage of soft contact lenses because their material allows more oxygen to penetrate the lens and reach the cornea. This makes them more comfortable and dry less on the eyes after many hours of use.

Rigid gas permeable contact lenses:
Rigid gas permeable or air-permeable contact lenses are made of a material that has high oxygen permeability. It is an ideal choice for people with high astigmatism and/or keratoconus. They have a small diameter and cover only a part of the cornea.

Keratoconus contact lenses:
They are specially designed lenses for corneal disease called keratoconus, as well as for patients after corneal transplantation. Keratoconus contact lenses are suitable for any type or stage of keratoconus and offer the best combination of vision and corneal comfort.
