Did you know that approximately 20% of individuals that require glasses wear contact lenses? Are you aware that contact lenses (compared to glasses) can increase your peripheral vision, can make things clearer, and can even boost your confidence?
There are a multitude of contact lenses available, but no two contact lenses are the same. Different coatings and different materials allow contact lenses to be made for different lifestyle needs.
Improper fitting and care of contact lenses, as well as sleeping in contact lenses, can lead to painful and blinding vision problems.
We are dedicated to offering you contact lenses that are conducive to your lifestyle as well as healthy for your eyes.
Here are a few of the types of contact lenses we offer:
- Options for children: We always encourage children to try contact lenses when they reach an age that they are comfortable with it. We’ve fit kids even as young as 8. Contact lenses allow kids to play sports freely while preventing any injuries caused by glasses. We fit kids in lenses that require little to no effort in maintenance and have UV protection to ensure healthy eyes well into their future.
- Options for bifocal or progressive wearers: Technology now allows us to fit multifocal lenses that provide clear distance, computer and reading vision. These come in many modalities that allow us to fit them according to your lifestyle.
- Daily contact lenses: Are you an avid golfer? Or do like backpacking across Asia? Daily contact lenses are a great choice for someone who may only want to wear them part time, for example if you are only planning to wear them for your weekly soccer game. As well they are a great choice for those traveling or always on the go, especially if maintaining a hygienic environment is more troublesome. These lenses are the most low maintenance option, and are thrown out at the end of the day.
- Options for those who experience dryness: We carry the newest lenses that have been designed specifically to help patients who experience dryness in their contact lenses. The technology allows for increased end of day comfort for our patients that find they cannot wear contact lenses for more than a few hours.
Come see us and we’ll be sure to fit you with the best and healthiest contact lenses for your lifestyle. Our team will teach you how to insert and remove your lenses and how to care for them if you are a first time wearer. For more information about contact lenses check out our Eye Q Blog.
