Can contact lenses be used for eyes with a high degree of myopia (-7 in both eyes)?

Asked Feb 24, 2015
Such high powered soft contact lenses have a thicker edge than low powered ones, and patients are more likely to be aware of them. Still, they are comfortable enough for most people.

The maximum power for monthly disposable spherical soft contact lenses is about -12D (Purevision 2HD, Biofinity), and for torics about -9D of sphere. This translates to a maximum spectacle power of -14D and -10D respectively, taking into account a vertex distance of 12mm. Better Go for big brand like Acuvue Contacts( ) or Bausch Contact
