contact lenses by replacement schedule
Replacement schedule refer to the length of time a
pair of lenses can be worn safely before discarding. Most contact lenses are
intended to be removed every night and discarded or cleaned and stored. Daily
lenses are intended to be discarded at the end of each day. We are pleased to
offer a variety of daily, bi-weekly and monthly lenses. Some of our coloured
lenses have a 90 or 365-day replacement, schedule, but it is important to note
that the longer you keep and wear these lenses, the greater the risk of
lenses should be discarded at the end of one day’s wear, and are the
healthiest option for contact lenses. You will enjoy the feeling of a fresh,
clean pair each morning, and there is no need for cleaning and storage. Daily
lenses are also a great choice for occasional wear or when
Bi-weekly lenses offer a compromise between daily
and monthly lenses. They are replaced more frequently than monthlies, so their
risk of contamination is lower, and they are often more affordable than daily
contact lenses are the most cost-effective options. Some brands of monthly
lenses are approved for occasional overnight or extended wear, making them an
attractive option for people who travel often or simply do not want the hassle
of daily lens care. This option of wear must first be discussed with your

Spherical and Aspherical contacts
Spherical and aspherical contact lenses are probably
the most common lenses on the market. They are used to correct near-sightedness
and farsightedness. With aspherical contact lenses you can even correct low
level of astigmatism or the early stages of presbyopia.

correct astigmatism. These lenses have a more complex design than standard
spherical or aspherical lenses, so a thorough examination and fitting with your
optometrist is required. Toric lenses’ technology allow them to self-stabilise
on your eye to ensure perfect vision at all distances.
Multifocal lenses help correct
presbyopia, which is an age-related condition that causes blurred near vision.
If you’re in your forties and experience difficulties reading or performing
close tasks, you may be a perfect candidate for multifocal contact lenses. These
lenses have a range of powers in each lens to correct vision at various

colour to varying degrees and are available with or without dioptric power.
