Contact Lenses: Things to Know

Contact lenses are an increasingly popular option for vision correction these days, for a variety of reasons. However, there are still plenty of questions about the different varieties of lenses, their functions, and what they are best used for.

Below are some resources to help you start the process of determining if contact lenses are right for you and your unique eye care needs.

Daily Disposable Contact Lenses

Daily disposable contact lenses provide you with the vision correction of contact lenses without requiring cleaning and maintenance of other types of contact lenses. Learn more about what daily disposables bring to the table.

Contact Lenses for Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a very common vision issue, and one that contact lenses are increasingly used to correct. Learn more about your options here.

Contact Lenses for Presbyopia

Just because you’ve developed presbyopia as you age doesn’t mean you have to slow down. Contact lenses can allow you to continue living an active lifestyle while providing the assistance you need. Learn more here.

Hard to Fit Contact Lenses

Just because you are classified as “hard to fit,” does not mean that contact lenses are ruled out as an option for you. Learn more about your options.

Colored Contact Lenses

For cosmetic purposes only, or can they help? Whichever purpose is relevant for you, there are things you should know in order to make an informed purchase.

Bifocal and Multifocal Contact Lenses

Just like glasses, both bifocal and multifocal contact lenses are available. Learn more about your options here.

Contact Lens Care

Your contact lenses may take care of your eyes, but you in turn have to take care of them. Learn the dos and don’ts, so that you get the most possible use out of your contacts.

Testimonials


As a long time patient and grateful recipient of Dr Kavner's care for my whole family I can wholeheartedly tell others his care is exemplary. His knowledge base is thrilling, and how ability to synthesize his wisdom into useful, accessible information is comforting, to say the least. I cannot say enough about this kind, gentle man and his legendary skills - he was one of the fathers of Occupational Optometry.
