Contact Lenses Focusing On Correction
There is a type of contact lenses that functionalize only in a corrective aspect, these are the ones known as the corrective contact lenses. These lenses are known to be designed with great focus on making sure that it fulfills its purpose, which is to improve the vision. This correction is mostly done by the contact lenses correcting most of the refractive error. This contribute to the reason that optician will easily prescribe the corrective contact lenses, when it is most suitable. The correction of the refractive error are mostly done by the focus being directly on the light, and make sure that it is entering the eye along with the proper power that make a clear vision a possibility.
There has been renewed interest in the orthokeratology, with comprehension of the correction of myopia, which is done by deliberating the overnight flatten of corneal epithelium, and will result in leaving the eye without any form of refractive error during the day. The known information about the spherical contact lens is that it bends the light in an even manner in every direction possible, which includes the horizontally, or even the vertically and so on. These spherical contact lenses are mostly used for the correction of both myopia and hyperopia. The toric contact lenses is known to have the different that is focusing more of the power on the horizontal direction, than the vertical. This is something will result in toric contact lenses to have the ability to correct astigmatism.
However, it is noticeable to acknowledge that some of the spherical rigid lenses to have the ability to correct astigmatism. It is acknowledged that the toric lens must have the necessary orientation to correct the astigmatism. For this reason, the toric contact lenses must also have different additional design that are in characteristics, which make it possible to prevent the lens from departing from the ideal alignment. This is something executed by weighing the lens’ bottom, or in some cases by using other physical characteristics in other to keep the contact lens into position.
There are some toric contact lenses that have either the marks or etchings that easily assist the optician to fit in the lenses on the patient’s eyes. These types of corrective contact lenses are effective in doing the correction needed. However, its usage among the people that wears it are dependent on the optician prescribing it, as it should not be worn without prescription.
