Many lens designs are available to correct various types of vision problems:

  • Spherical contact lenses are the typical, rounded design of contact lenses, which can correct myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness).
  • Bifocal contact lenses contain different zones for near and far vision to correct presbyopia.
  • Orthokeratology lenses are specially designed to reshape the cornea during sleep, providing lens-free daytime wear.
  • Toric contact lenses correct for astigmatism, as well as for myopia and hyperopia.

All of these lenses can be custom made for hard-to-fit eyes. Many other additional lens designs are available. Typically these are less common and fabricated for use in special situations, such as correcting for keratoconus.
