Contact Lenses

Fed up with the fuss of eyeglasses? Are you thinking about making the leap to contacts? You're not the only one feeling this way! Many prefer contact lenses over traditional glasses because they're more convenient. To properly wear contact lenses, you need to understand how to handle and care for them, get a current prescription, schedule regular eye exams to check for any issues, and update your prescription over time.

Understanding Contact Lenses

Contact lenses, often just called contacts, are thin, curved lenses placed directly on the corneas of your eyes. Unlike glasses, which sit in front of your eyes, contacts move with your eyes, providing a more natural, unobstructed field of view.

Why You Need an Eye Doctor for Contact Lenses

Before jumping into the world of contact lenses, it’s essential to get a thorough eye exam first. A seasoned eye doctor will run this custom check-up, making sure your eyes are in top shape. Your eye doctor will check out the shape of your eyes, see how well you make tears, and chat about what you do every day and what you like regarding contact lenses. From here, we can recommend the most suitable type of contact lenses for you.

Types of Contact Lenses

There are various types of contact lenses, each catering to different needs and preferences. Daily-wear lenses are worn during the day and removed at night, while you can use extended-wear lenses continuously, even while sleeping. Flexible plastic is what most soft lenses are made from, favored for their comfort in day-to-day wear. Rigid gas permeable lenses, made from a more rigid material, are another option for specific eye conditions.

Navigating the Insertion and Removal Process

Inserting and removing contact lenses can seem daunting, but it becomes second nature with practice. Your optometrist will guide you through the process during your contact lens fitting. Remember to wash your hands thoroughly, use the recommended solutions, and follow the specific instructions provided by your optometrist.

Why Choose Contact Lenses

Contact lenses offer several advantages over traditional glasses. With contact lenses, you get a broader view of your surroundings, minus the annoying interference from glass frames. Contact lenses are a top pick for those who lead an active life or simply fancy being free from the confines of glasses.
