For some people, correcting their vision is important, but glasses either don’t fit their tastes or your lifestyle. Fortunately, you don’t have to choose between wearing glasses and seeing well. With contact lenses, you can have all the benefits of corrective lenses without ever having to put on a pair of glasses. Just like eyeglasses, contact lenses can be used to correct most major vision problems, including myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. They are a popular choice because they are convenient and effective, great for sports, work, and play.
Our eyewear professionals are here to help you find a pair of contact lenses that will correct your vision while remaining comfortable and easy to care for. There are many types of contact lenses available, including hard lenses, soft lenses, and GP lenses. Hard lenses, made from Lucite or Plexiglas are only rarely used. Soft lenses are the most common choice and are composed of a gel-like water containing plastic. GP lenses are recommended for people with severe astigmatism and presbyopia. They are made from a rigid plastic and are oxygen permeable.
If you are in need of new contacts or are considering the switch from glasses to contact lenses, give us a call today.
