The Best Contact Lenses for High Hyperopia and Dry Eyes with Astigmatism and Presbyopia


Having high hyperopia, dry eyes with astigmatism and presbyopia can make finding the right contact lenses a challenge. Fortunately, there are several types of lenses available that can help you see clearly and feel comfortable throughout the day.

Soft Contact Lenses

Soft contact lenses are made of a flexible material, such as silicone hydrogel. They conform to the shape of your eye, providing a comfortable fit that may be particularly beneficial if you have dry eyes. Additionally, soft lenses can correct for astigmatism and presbyopia if they are made as toric or multifocal lenses.

Daily Disposable Lenses

Daily disposable lenses are ideal for people with dry eyes, as they offer a fresh lens every day, which may decrease the likelihood of irritation or infection. These lenses are also available in multifocal versions, which are perfect for people who have both high hyperopia and presbyopia.

Extended Wear Lenses

Extended wear lenses are soft contact lenses that can be worn continuously for several days or weeks. These lenses may be a good choice if you have a busy schedule or simply don’t want to bother with the daily chore of cleaning your lenses. However, be warned that if you have dry eyes, extended wear lenses may exacerbate the problem.

Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses

Rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses are made of a harder material that is less flexible than that of soft lenses. This does not necessarily mean they are uncomfortable! In fact, many people find them quite comfortable after a brief adjustment period. RGPs can provide sharp vision correction for those with high hyperopia and astigmatism. They can also be designed as multifocal lenses for the correction of presbyopia.


When it comes to contact lenses, there are many options available for those with high hyperopia, dry eyes with astigmatism and presbyopia. Soft contact lenses are a popular choice for their comfort, while RGP lenses can provide sharper vision. Consult with your eye care provider to determine which type of lenses is best suited for your specific needs.

  • Tip: Always follow the recommended wearing schedule and care instructions for your contact lenses.
  • Note: Never sleep with your contact lenses unless specifically prescribed by your eye care professional.
