  • Contact Lenses, Wilkes-BarreDaily wear: These are usually the least expensive soft contact lenses option. You wear them during the day, and remove them at night and throw them out. They’re more comfortable and more difficult to dislodge than hard contact lenses.
  • Extended wear: Available for overnight wear in soft or hard lenses. Can usually be worn up to seven days without removal.
  • Extended wear disposables: These soft contact lenses are available for overnight or continuous wear ranging from one to six days and then discarded. They require little or no cleaning and there’s minimal risk of eye infection when instructions are followed.
  • Planned replacements: The majority of soft contact lens wearers are prescribed some type of frequent replacement schedule, most often every two weeks. Simply use them for the recommended time frame and then discard them.
  • Colored contacts: These contact lenses can change the appearance of your eye color or merely enhance your natural eye color. No prescription is required when only changing or enhancing eye color.
  • Bifocal contact lenses: These are for people suffering from presbyopia (age-related problem with vision) or astigmatism. Bifocal (and multifocal) contact lenses are made by various manufacturers.
  • Hard contact lenses: Hard contact lenses, also known as rigid gas permeable lenses (RGP), offer excellent vision for most vision problems. They tend to be more economical than soft contact lenses since they’re more durable and last longer. They’re especially appealing to people who have tried soft contact lenses in the past, but haven’t been satisfied with the results.
