Contact Lenses

Question: Contact Lenses? I have not worn contact lenses for over ten years, when I did they were Rigid Gas Permeable which my optician said were best for me as I have slight astigmatism. I would like to start wearing contacts again occasionally. Are these hard lenses still available?

Answer: If you only going to wear them occasionally go for toric soft lenses. If you astigmatism is about the 0.75 mark ordinary soft lenses should do the trick and are a lot cheaper. Two reasons for suggesting soft lenses. You will not have to gradually build up wearing time and they are usually comfortable straight away unlike GP's.
