Hard lenses are more durable than soft lenses. They provide the wearers with clearer visions and are easy to manage and maintain.

Bifocal lenses are specifically created for people with presbyopia to provide them with clearer visions and have the same function as bifocal glasses.

Toric contact lenses are for those who have astigmatism. They are made from similar materials as other lenses, and they can be soft or rigid gas permeable.
