There are different types of contact lenses on the market, each offering their own advantages and disadvantages.

The best type of contact lenses for your needs

Soft lenses

Soft lenses are very popular because they are comfortable and easy to wear.


Soft lenses are the most commonly prescribed due to their comfort and ease of fitting.


They are available in different forms, including daily, monthly and disposable lenses.

Daily, disposable or monthly lenses

Daily lenses are the best type of lenses for occasional wearers or those with sensitive eyes because frequent replacement does not require maintenance.

Disposable lenses are often recommended to reduce the risk of eye infections because they are replaced regularly.

Monthly lenses, on the other hand, are more economical in the long term and offer a greater variety of corrections.

Hard lenses

Hard lenses, on the other hand, offer better visual correction for certain vision problems, such as astigmatism and presbyopia.


They may be more durable and provide better quality of vision compared to soft lenses.


Hard gas permeable lenses allow better oxygenation of the cornea: they are therefore the best type of lens to reduce the risk of long-term ocular complications.

The best type of contact lenses for people with vision problems

For people with more complex vision conditions, such as astigmatism, toric lenses may be the best type of lenses. They are designed to correct the irregular shape of the cornea and provide a clearer, more comfortable visual field.

Hard contact lenses, on the other hand, are recommended for people suffering from keratoconus or other serious refractive problems. They offer very clear optical correction, but require longer adaptation than soft lenses.

Progressive lenses are a good option for people with presbyopia because they correct both near and distance vision. They can be progressive or multifocal, depending on the visual needs of the patient.
