The most popular type in the U.S. You use these lenses for one day, then throw them away after use.

Daily wear contacts

These are taken out and cleaned each night so they can be reused daily.

These can be worn for weeks at a time before being removed.

Rigid gas permeable contacts

These generally give clearer vision than traditional soft lenses.

Specialty lenses

These are for patients with unusual vision correction problems such as toric lenses to correct astigmatism.

These lenses are worn overnight to correct mild to moderate vision problems.

Northern San Antonio Optometrist Talks Contact Lens Care

Each variety of contact lenses has their own method of cleaning. When you come in to get fitted for your new contacts, our northern San Antonio optometrist will teach you all about how to clean and care for your lenses. These are some general rules for cleaning all lenses:

  • Wash your hands and rinse them well before cleaning your lenses
