Contact lenses

Contact lenses are a type of corrective eyewear that are placed directly on the surface of your eye to help you see more clearly. They are a great alternative to traditional eyeglasses, as they provide a more natural field of vision and do not obstruct your peripheral vision. If you’re interested in contact lenses, our opticians will work with you to determine the best type and fit for your eyes, and provide training on proper care and maintenance.

There are two main types of contact lenses: soft lenses and rigid gas permeable lenses. Soft lenses are made of a flexible plastic material that conforms to the shape of your eye and are generally more comfortable to wear. Rigid gas permeable lenses, on the other hand, are made of a harder, more rigid material that allows for better oxygen flow to your eyes and can provide sharper vision.

Contact lenses are available in a variety of prescriptions, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. They can also be used to correct presbyopia, a condition that typically affects people over the age of 40 and causes difficulty with reading and close-up tasks.

To determine if contact lenses are right for you, we will need to perform a comprehensive eye exam to assess your overall eye health and determine your specific prescription needs. We will also provide guidance on proper contact lens care and maintenance to ensure that your lenses remain comfortable and safe to wear.

Overall, contact lenses are a great option for anyone who wants to enjoy clear vision without the hassle of traditional eyeglasses. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask, and we will be happy to help.

Contact lenses can be a great tool for those wanting freedom of vision from everyday spectacles. From regular to occasional wear, our expert contact lens fitters will have the perfect solution for your needs.
