Today, soft contact lenses can effectively correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, mild to severe levels of astigmatism, and even presbyopia as you grow older. Specialized RGB or rigid gas permeable lenses can also be used in tandem with soft lenses to correct difficult to fit problems such as keratoconus. In fact, contact lenses have been shown to provide greater visual clarity for treating keratoconus over traditional eyeglasses.
