Call or click to schedule your appointment.

What are my options?

There are many contact lens options available. Your eye care provider will take your lifestyle and vision correction needs into consideration when helping you select the right lenses for your eyes.

Here are some of the most common contacts our doctors fit at Oxford Eye Clinic:

  • Soft contact lenses – The most common lens type today, soft contact lenses are popular because they are very comfortable, convenient, and safe. Soft lenses are appropriate to correct near and farsightedness, as well as astigmatism.
  • Disposable lenses – Almost all contact lenses today are Intended to be worn for a short time and disposed of either on a daily or monthly basis. These lenses help prevent dry eye discomfort, allergic reactions, bacterial infections, and several other problems created by longer wear lenses. Daily disposable lenses are also appropriate for children who might not take excellent care when cleaning their lenses.
  • Extended wear contact lenses – Extended wear contact lenses are designed to be worn constantly for long periods of time – up to 30 days – and can even be worn while sleeping, but do need to be deep cleaned weekly. Extended wear lenses are recommended only where circumstances don’t allow for the daily removal and cleaning, or easy disposal of lenses.
  • Colored contact lenses – These are worn to enhance or completely change the visual color of the iris. They are still prescription contact lenses, however, and need to be treated with the same care you would give to regular lenses. Several brands of contact lens companies offer colored lens options.
  • Multifocal contact lenses – Multifocal lens are used by patients needing bifocal or progressive eyeglass lenses, which are typically for patients over 45. They allow for clear distance and near vision without the need to wear reading glasses over the contact lenses.
  • Scleral contact lenses – A scleral lens is used to correct vision in diseased eyes that formerly had no options for normal vision with glasses or standard contact lenses. Some of the most amazing changes in patients’ lives have happened with successful scleral lens fittings.
  • Dry eye contact lenses – These lenses are used by patients who have dry eyes and can’t obtain relief from normal treatment. They often will protect the eye from dryness and thus give good comfort and vision to an otherwise compromised system.

Replacement & exchange of contact lenses

Free replacement of torn or lost lenses – We will replace up to five (5) torn or lost contact lenses free of charge for one-year after your ORDER DATE. This replacement policy does NOT apply to tinted lenses or specialty contact lenses, such as scleral or hard contact lenses.

Free exchange of lenses – If you require an upgrade of your contact lenses within one year of your ORDER DATE, we will exchange your lenses free of charge one-time during the one-year period, provided the lens box and packaging are still in new or like-new condition at the time of the exchange (e.g., not damaged or written on with any ink whatsoever).
