The "Best" Contact lens
- Which Contact Lens is "The Best"? THE ANSWER TODAY!
- One of the most FAQ I get asked is "which contact lens is the best?" Or "which one is the most comfortable?", etc.
The answer is... THE ONE THAT FITS. And that is, of course, different for each patient. So many factors play a role:
EYE PHYSIOLOGY: Rx, corneal curvature, corneal diameter, corneal health
LENS PARAMETERS: base curve, diameter, thickness, edge design, optic zone size, modulus (stiffness), water content, material, modality, surface treatment, etc
Its not near as easy as "X lens is THE MOST COMFORTABLE". Every patient and every eye is different, and therefore what works for some won't work for others. This is why you need an optometrist's professional option to guide you, and this is also the reason we all charge a "fitting fee" or "evaluation fee".
