Contact Lenses

What Are Contact Lenses?

Contacts are thin lenses placed directly on the cornea, the dome-shaped surface of your eye. They correct vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, similar to eyeglasses. Various materials and designs exist, catering to individual needs and preferences. Daily disposables can be more convenient, while extended wear lenses provide continuous wear for a set period.

Beyond the Basics

While contacts offer undeniable advantages, there are some important factors to consider:

•           Eye health: Contact lenses can increase your risk of eye infections if not cared for properly. Hygiene is essential, including regular lens cleaning and replacement, and avoiding wearing them overnight unless specifically approved by your eye doctor.

•           Dry eyes: Contacts can exacerbate dry eye issues, leading to discomfort and irritation. Artificial tears or switching to specific lens materials can help manage dryness.

•           Not a one-size-fits-all solution: Unlike certain glasses, contacts require a precise fit for optimal comfort and vision correction. Regular eye exams can be important to ensure proper fitting.

•           Lifestyle factors: Contact lens wear might not be suitable for everyone. Consider your lifestyle and daily activities. If you work in dusty environments or participate in water sports frequently, consulting your eye doctor about the best options may be essential.

Are Contact Lenses Right for You?

Contact lenses can significantly enhance your daily life, but it's important to approach them with awareness and prioritize your eye health. Schedule an eye exam with an optometrist on our team to discuss your individual needs and suitability for contact lens wear.
