Contact lenses sit directly on your eyes, allowing you to see clearly if you have refractive errors like nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. Compared with glasses, contact lenses provide clearer, more natural vision.

Plenty of people don’t like the way they look when they wear glasses. That’s a perfectly fine reason to switch to contacts.
Many people can safely wear contacts, but if you have certain problems with your eye health then they may not be right for you. Before prescribing and fitting you for contact lenses, the team of optometrists at Eyes on Hayden perform comprehensive eye exams to determine if you’re a good candidate for contacts.
Thanks to advances in technology, contact lenses can now correct a wide range of complex vision problems, including presbyopia and severe astigmatism. Don’t hesitate to ask your eye doctor if contacts are right for you. Even if you were told that you couldn’t wear contacts in the past, there may be an option that’s right for you on the market now.
The optical shop at Eyes on Hayden offers a selection of contact lenses to fit every need. At your eye exam, your doctor goes over your options and gives recommendations.
Types of contact lenses include:
The most common type of contact lenses is made of a flexible plastic that easily fit your eyes.
Not to be confused with old-fashioned hard contacts, rigid-gas permeable lenses are made of a durable, firm, but still comfortable material. Depending on your vision problems, RGP lenses may provide clearer vision and be easier to wear than soft contacts.
The optical shop offers custom contact lenses that fit your eyes perfectly if you have high refractive errors, astigmatism, irregular corneas, and other conditions that affect the shape of your eye. These include bifocal, multifocal, and hybrid lenses.
If you had a birth defect, eye infection, or disease that affected the appearance of your eye, prosthetic lenses can cover up imperfections and look like healthy eyes.
