Multifocal lenses are a great option if you have presbyopia. The design of these lenses incorporates multiple prescriptions into a single lens, helping you see clearly at all distances. These contact lenses can help correct myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

There are several designs available for multifocal contact lenses, including:

  • Concentric ring lenses: These lenses have different lens powers in alternating concentric rings, with the near or distance field in the centre of the lens
  • Aspheric lenses: These lenses position the different lens powers similar to concentric rings but with a blended or progressive transition
  • Translating lenses: These lenses place the different lens powers in separate parts of the lens, so the corrective fields do not shift when you look around
  • Monovision lenses: These bifocal lenses are ideal if you struggle with other multifocal lenses—one lens is for distance vision while the other is for near vision

Rigid gas permeable lenses are more sturdy than traditional, soft contacts. These lenses offer crisp vision because they maintain their shape when you blink. Despite being bulkier, they remain lightweight and allow oxygen to pass through to reach your eyes. Rigid gas permeable lenses can correct astigmatism, myopia, or hyperopia.

MiSight lenses are for correcting and controlling myopia progression in children. These daily soft contact lenses are easy to use and feature peripheral defocus technology. MiSight lenses slow eyeball elongation and may reduce myopia progression by up to 59%.

Scleral lenses are unique contacts that vault over the entire corneal surface. These lenses rest on your sclera (the white of your eye) creating a smooth ocular surface. Scleral lenses are ideal for people with irregular corneas, hard-to-fit eyes, and dry eyes.

Scleral lenses have a larger surface area than traditional contact lenses, creating a fluid reservoir that consistently hydrates your eyes.

Orthokeratology lenses, or ortho-k, are specially designed lenses that temporarily reshape the cornea. These lenses are commonly used to treat myopia. Ortho-k lenses can slow myopic progression by up to 50% in 2 years.

You wear ortho-k lenses overnight and remove them in the morning. These lenses reshape the cornea as you sleep, allowing you to enjoy the day without the need for glasses or contacts.
