Types of Contact Lenses
Single Vision: Single vision lenses are meant for those individuals who need visual assistance with distance vision or near vision. Like glasses, each contact lens is matched to the prescription of each eye.
Monovision: Monovision lenses can help presbyopic individuals by reducing the need for reading glasses. With monovision, each eye has different lens requirements. Your dominant eye will use a contact lens for distance vision while your non-dominant eye will use a lens for near vision. With both eyes working together, typically, the sight is clear and comfortable without strain from either eye.
Bi-Focal: Bi-Focal lenses are also designed to provide improved vision for those individuals who have presbyopia. Bi-focal contact lenses have two prescriptions in the same lens to create alternating vision.
