What Are The Different Types Of Soft Contact Lenses, And How Do I Know Which Type Is Best For Me?

Question: What are the different types of soft contact lenses, and how do I know which type is best for me?

Answer: There are a number of different materials that are used to create soft contact lenses, and there are advantages and disadvantages to each of these materials. In general, soft contact lenses are very well tolerated and very safe when used according to the directions given to you by your eye care provider. Really, the best person to make the decision about what specific soft contact lens might be appropriate for you is the person who is fitting the contact lenses and who will then monitor how they fit on your eye and ensure that your eye remains healthy while you're wearing them.
