Modern lenses contain a high water content which allows plenty of oxygen to reach the surface of the eye. They are available in daily disposable or monthly alternatives although the monthly option does require a degree of cleaning.
Technological advances have allowed manufacturers to develop lenses suitable for most applications from toric lenses which fit astigmatic eyes through to multifocals which are capable of providing crystal clear vision from varying distances.
Some new lenses can be worn up to 30 days without being removed at all. Sophisticated orthokeratology lenses help to reshape the corneas even whilst you are asleep. Although these lenses are only available in certain prescription strengths they are becoming an increasingly popular option for some vision problems.
