Your doctor will help you determine the contacts right for you. Some popular choices available through Health Net Vision PPO plans include:
Conventional: Conventional lenses are all lenses that do not fall into the category of disposable product. They can be rigid, gas permeable material, or conventional soft lens material.
Disposable/Frequent Replacement: Replacing your contacts on a regular basis may be in your best interest. Your doctor will help you choose the type of lens best for the health of your eyes.
Monthly: Lenses are replaced on a one- or two-month cycle.
Weekly: Lenses are replaced every week or two.
Daily: Lenses are truly disposable and are replaced daily.
Bifocal: These lenses are designed to correct for distance and near vision at the same time (just like bifocal glasses). They are specialty lenses and may be more difficult to adapt to.
Toric: These lenses have a special curvature designed to correct for a stigmatism. A stigmatism is a visual defect in which the cornea is not perfectly round. Toric lenses are used when conventional soft or rigid lenses do not correct the defect. The newer toric lenses typically meet with a high degree of satisfaction.
Colored or Fashion-tinted Lenses: Cosmetically tinted lenses are designed to enhance or change a person's eye color. They are very popular with people with light colored eyes and offer an excellent opportunity to change or enhance eye color.
