At Clifton Eye Care, we work hard to get patients’ insurance companies to approve coverage for medically necessary contact lenses. In most cases, there is no cost to the patient!
Some of the conditions that can be treated with rigid or hybrid contact lenses are:
- Keratoconus is a condition in which the cornea, the clear outer layer of your eye, begins to thin out and change shape. This condition affects the vision and can be uncomfortable. Progression of this condition is gradual but steady. Vision correction with contact lenses may be required.
- Irregular Astigmatism is a condition in which the abnormal shape of the cornea detrimentally affects vision and advanced contact lenses are often required to correct vision to an ideal degree.
- Aphakia is the absence of the lens (an ocular structure responsible for focusing light onto the retina) in the ocular anatomy. This condition can exist from birth or can arise from a trauma or injury.
Contact lenses correct your vision and are easy to wear. Choosing the contact lenses that are right for you depends on your vision and comfort. There are many types of contacts to suit almost anyone. Types of contact lenses include:
Soft Contact Lenses
The most frequently prescribed due to their tremendous comfort. Soft contacts are now available for patients with astigmatism, dry eyes and can even change the color of your eyes. Soft contact lenses include:
- Daily Wear — can be worn up to 12 hours but must be removed and cleaned at night
- Extended Wear — can be worn on a more flexible schedule than daily wear
- Disposable are meant to be worn for a short time and then discarded
- Color changing — can change the color of your eyes even if vision correction is not needed
Hard Contact Lenses
Also called rigid or gas-permeable lenses, they offer sharper vision and can correct nearsightedness or astigmatism. However, hard contact lenses take longer to adjust to than soft contact lenses.
Our contact lens supplier stocks over three million soft contact lenses from all the major manufacturers for next-day delivery.

Contact lenses are medical devices and are regulated by state and federal law. A contact lens prescription is valid for ONE (1) year from your eye examination. Once the prescription has expired, lenses may not be replaced. Do not wait until you are out of lenses to return for your annual eye examination.
