Contact Lenses

At Family Eye Care in Bristol, CT, we want you to feel comfortable and confident in your contact lenses. The most common contact lenses are soft lenses, and they come in different wear schedules such as daily and biweekly.

While soft contact lenses are popular, they may not be the ideal choice for everyone. Whether you have keratoconus, astigmatism, or other conditions that make wearing traditional contact lenses challenging, we offer a range of specialty contact lenses in Bristol to meet your needs.

Multifocal contact lenses

Multifocal lenses are perfect for those who require both distance and near vision correction. These lenses are ideal for individuals who are over the age of 40 and have presbyopia, which makes it difficult to focus on nearby objects.

Toric contact lenses

Toric lenses are specialty lenses designed to correct astigmatism. Astigmatism is a condition where the eye’s cornea is shaped more like a football instead of round like a basketball, resulting in blurry vision. These lenses are shaped differently than traditional contact lenses to correct the irregular shape of the cornea, providing clear vision.

Hybrid contact lenses

If you have been diagnosed with keratoconus or have irregular corneas, finding the right contact lenses can be a challenge. Hybrid contact lenses are designed specifically for people with keratoconus and irregular corneas. These lenses combine the best features of rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses and soft contact lenses to provide superior vision correction and comfort. The rigid center of the lens ensures clear vision by correcting the irregular shape of the cornea, while the soft skirt surrounding the lens provides all-day comfort.

Cosmetic contact lenses

Cosmetic contact lenses are designed to change the appearance of your eyes by enhancing or altering their natural color. These lenses are available in both prescription and non-prescription options. Even if you wear them without vision correction, they still require a prescription to safely wear them.

Monovision contact lenses 

Monovision contact lenses are a popular option for people who are already nearsighted and then develop presbyopia, a common age-related condition where the eyes have difficulty focusing on near objects. With monovision contacts, one eye is corrected for distance vision while the other eye is corrected for near vision. This allows you to see clearly at all distances without needing reading glasses.
