Can people with astigmatism wear disposable contact lenses?
Yes. In astigmatism, the eye is not perfectly round. A standard soft lens is floppy and so when it is in place on the eye, it follows the natural curve of the eye and so does not give it the wanted rounded shape.
What is the difference between bifocal and progressive lenses?
Progressives and bifocals look very unconventional. A bifocal has a prominent line on the lens whereas the progressive has a smooth unobstructed surface.
Bifocals will only provide you with a clear vision in two ways. Progressives can cater to most of the distances that you need to see.
How long does it take to adjust to progressive lenses?
Getting used to progressives can take from a few days to a few weeks. You need to give yourself time to adapt to the new viewing areas, which can take a long time if you’re trying progressives for the first time.
What happens if I do not adjust to progressive lenses?
