What are Hybrid Lenses?
Hybrid contact lenses feature a hard (gas permeable) center bordered by a soft outer ring. Hybrid contact lenses may be an option if you have an uneven corneal curve (keratoconus, high astigmatism, post-surgery) or you have difficulty using traditional hard lenses. These lenses typically give you the crisp vision of a gas permeable lens, with the comfort of a soft lens.Read More
What does it mean to be a hard to fit contact lens wearer?

Multifocal contact lenses give you added freedom over glasses and they allow you to be able to view any direction – up, down and to the sides – with similar vision. People wearing progressive lenses in glasses on the other hand have to look over their glasses if they want to view upwards or into the distance.Read More
