Types of Specialty Lenses

eyedocs icon

Several different types of contact lenses can help with many eye conditions, like myopia, keratoconus, presbyopia, and more.

Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology, or ortho-k, lenses gently reshape patients’ eyes while they sleep, providing clearer vision throughout the day. The lenses are worn at night and removed during the day.  These lenses are made of rigid gas permeable materials that allow oxygen to pass through the lens to the eye.

Using Hoya’s patented Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments (DIMS) Technology, MiyoSmart lenses are inserted into a pair of stylish and fun frames. These lenses create defocus areas to cue the eye to stop elongating—all while correcting the refractive error caused by myopia.

Myopia control contact lenses correct the refractive error caused by myopia and send the signal that it’s time for the eyes to slow their elongation.

MiSight 1 day lenses are suitable for children as young as 8 years old and have been shown to reduce myopia progression by 59%. MiSight uses 2 treatment zones to create myopic defocus, causing the image to focus in front of the retina, correcting vision to slow the elongation of the eye.

Multifocal lenses feature 2 sections to correct myopic vision and signal to the eyes that it is time to stop elongating. One section corrected the refractive error, providing clearer distance vision, and the other section adds focusing power to bring peripheral vision into focus in front of the retina.

Instead of resting on your cornea, scleral contact lenses rest on your sclera—the white part of your eye. This vaulted feature makes scleral lenses an excellent option for people who struggle with irregular corneas and many other conditions.
