Contact lenses are an excellent alternative to eyeglasses that provide excellent vision with enhanced functionality. Contacts are small plastic disks worn directly on the eye for vision correction. Contacts float on the tear film in the eye and can correct refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia.
The most common type of contact lenses are soft contact lenses that come in a variety of styles and wearing schedules. Most soft contact lenses are disposable, meaning you wear them during the day for up to a month, depending on the brand, and then replace them. There are also extended wear contact lenses that can be worn overnight, as well as daily disposable lenses that are thrown away after each use.
