Eye specialists could correct eye defects by placing a thin optical disk covering the eyeball. These disks, commonly known as contact lenses, have really changed the way people treat eye defects. Previously, people were worried about their appearance after wearing glasses that looked like glasses, but now it’s all about the type of contact lenses that are most suitable for you.
Main types of contact lenses are soft lenses and Rigid Gas Permeable lenses (RGP) and as the name suggests, soft lenses are soft and comfortable when worn, probably due to the fact that they consist of humidity of more than 80%.
Because of these subtle characteristics, soft contact lenses last for a relatively for a small period of time, maybe almost a year if they are cared for properly. There are many types of contact lenses are available at different websites.

On the other hand, permeable gas stiffness (RGP) is harder and contains very little water compared to soft lenses. Two of these advantages are that they do not accumulate dirt and they seem to be stronger by perfecting images more accurately than soft contacts.
All lenses are specifically made to treat certain eye problems. One type of contact lens is a Toric lens. Toric lenses are made specifically for people with astigmatism. Astigmatism is when someone sees a blurry image of objects both far and near.
This lens is designed for dry eyes. Dry eyes are when your eyes are completely dry because there is not enough moisture to lubricate the eye sockets. So when it was found that some contact lenses suck moisture from the eye, it was decided that there was an urgent need to make a lens to fight dry eyes.
Other types of lenses are disposable contacts and extended wear lenses. With a disposable lens, you are free to throw it away after a few days of use. They are generally more comfortable; healthier and more user-friendly because you can apply and delete it yourself. On the other hand, extended wear contacts can be used continuously for 30 days and more difficult.
Generally, it is advisable to visit an eye specialist if you have problems with eyesight. This is because without a doctor’s diagnosis you might wear the wrong contact lenses and worsen your eye problems.
