Contact Lenses - Fitting and Options
There are a number of reasons why you might prefer contact lenses to standard eyewear: a glasses-free look, hassle-free vision correction, wearing non-prescription sunwear and goggles, or the convenience of not having to worry about misplacing your glasses. If you have a high prescription or astigmatism, contact lenses may provide more enhanced vision correction than glasses.
Your eye care provider can recommend the best contact lenses for you based on a complete eye examination and a review of your visual needs both at work and play. Since most people can wear more than one type of lens, it’s important to know what the choices are and the advantages and disadvantages to each.
Regardless of the type of contact lenses you wear, an annual eye exam is recommended to ensure the continued good health of your eyes.
These lenses are comfortable to wear and are replaced monthly, weekly or daily. They can provide correction for most prescriptions including astigmatism.
Today, with the introduction of newer materials like silicone hydrogels, which allow more oxygen to the eye, patients find it easier than ever to wear soft lenses comfortably.
Gas-Permeable (GP) Lenses
Made of moderately flexible plastics, GP lenses offer sharp vision and correct most vision problems. They are more durable than soft contact lenses and can be easier to handle and care for but require a longer adaptation period and consistent wear to maintain adaptation.
Orthokeratology is a nonsurgical procedure using specially designed contact lenses to gently reshape the curvature of the eye to improve vision minimizing the need for glasses or contact lenses during the daytime.
Color Contact Lenses
Enhance your eye color or even change it completely.
Colored contact lenses are fun and come in a variety of colors for both light and dark eyes.
