What are Hybrid lenses?

Hybrid lenses combines the best of both soft and gas permeable lenses. The center is Gas Permeable (oxygen breathing) and it is surrounded by a soft lens “skirt.” So it gives the sharpness and clarity of a gas permeable lens and the wearing comfort of a soft lens.

Hybrid lenses are made for people who are nearsighted, farsighted astigmatic, need multifocal, after LASIK, and those that have Keratoconus. Bifocal and Multifocal lenses are special lenses for people who want to see clearly at both distance and at near.

Hybrid lenses are a great choice for people who want to be able to see more crisply than they can with soft lenses, but have difficulty in adjusting to how oxygen permeable contact lenses feel.

These are available for

  • single vision,
  • people with astigmatism
  • keratoconus
  • people who have had LASIK surgery but are unhappy with the results and how they see.

For more information on all contact lenses, visit our office and we will be happy to explain.

Dear Valued Patient,

At Family Eye Care, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.

Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.

As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and are due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.
