We offer many different types of contact lenses, including soft, toric, gas permeable, multifocal, and fashion color lenses, to residents of Asheville, NC.


Contact Lenses, Asheville, NCIf you have tried contact lenses in the past and didn’t find them to your liking, we invite you to come in to Vision Source of Asheville and let us show you the advances that have been made in contact lens design and materials.

  • Toric Contact Lenses – If you have astigmatism, you may have been told in the past that you’ll never be able to wear contact lenses, but with toric lenses, it’s more than possible!
  • Rigid, Gas Permeable Contact Lenses – While these are becoming less popular, there are still those who prefer them, especially those with stronger prescriptions.
  • Soft Contact Lenses – Years ago, these were only offered in a lens that had to be removed at the end of the day, cleaned and stored to be inserted again in the morning. New technology has enabled products that are more convenient. One type is daily wear contact lenses which you wear for one day, then dispose of and use a fresh pair the next morning. There are also contact lenses that you can wear overnight for 2 weeks or longer, depending on the type.
  • Multifocal Contact Lenses – One of the newest options to come out is multifocal contact lenses. In the past, people who were both nearsighted and farsighted had to resort to eyeglasses, but not anymore!
  • Fashion Color Contact Lenses – It is now possible to change your eye color! This can be done in either prescription lenses or non-prescription lenses, making them a fun reason to give contact lenses another try or even for the first time!

Our office staff is trained and experienced in fitting most styles of contact lenses. We are happy to discuss the advantages of each type and determine which style is best for your situation.
