How much do hybrid contact lenses cost?

How much hybrid contact lenses cost will vary, depending on your prescription and your chosen brand. Your optician can help you find the right hybrid content lenses for your needs.

Hybrid contact lenses are large diameter lenses that have a rigid oxygen permeable centre with a peripheral zone made of soft or silicone hydrogel material. The benefits of having a lens that is made out of two materials are that you have the best of both worlds.

Hybrid contact lenses are used to correct a number of sight issues such as:

  • Long sightedness
  • Short sightedness
  • Astigmatism
  • Keratoconus

Hybrid contacts for keratoconus have a special design that allows the central GP zone of the lens to vault over the irregularly shaped cornea. If you have mild to moderate keratoconus, it may be possible to get specially made-to-order soft lenses, which can be more comfortable than hybrid contact lenses. However, these do come at an extra cost.

While Hybrid contact lenses can be more expensive than soft contact lenses, they do have many benefits including:

  • Vision should not shift or blur
  • Keeps the lens stable in the eye
  • More comfortable than hard and ridged lenses
  • Less likely to pop out of the eye
