Contact Lenses come in many varieties. Most patients are fit in comfortable, soft contact lenses. Hard lenses can also be fit if desired, or if you are already wearing them. These are called Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) lenses. They can also provide very clear vision, but are generally less comfortable than soft contacts. Today, astigmatism can easily be corrected with soft contacts; these are called toric contacts. For those over 40 years old, a variety of solutions can be used to help with reading. These include distance contacts plus reading glasses, monovision contacts, where one eye is focused at a distance and the other at near, or bifocal contacts. Although more expensive, soft contacts these days can accommodate both astigmatism and reading in what are termed toric bifocal contact lenses.
