Since the FDA approved the first soft contact lens in 1971, technology has changed tremendously. Today there are hundreds of different contact lenses on the market. Lens brands differ in a multitude of ways, including the optical design, material, wearing schedule, and water content.

It is important to have a discussion with an eye care professional to see which lens will work best for you. The lens selection will take into account many factors, including your prescription, the overall health of your eyes, the size and shape of each eye, and even special activities or sports you may engage in.
