Daily Disposable Contact Lenses
Daily disposable contact lenses, or dailies, make keeping up with your eye care easier. With dailies, there is no need to clean and store the lenses in a case overnight. The lenses are worn once and then thrown away. Dailies are usually more moisturizing and comfortable. If you suffer from eye allergies, dailies may be the best option for you. Since you get a fresh lens every day, you don’t have worry about cleaning off any allergens that can build up on the lenses and irritate the eyes. Dailies may also be a good option for you if you do not wear contacts often. Getting into the habit of properly cleaning and replacing your contacts is more difficult if you do not wear the lenses regularly.
Contact Lenses for Astigmatism
Contact lenses are not one size fits all. There are certain eye conditions, such as astigmatism, that require special lenses. Astigmatism refers to the irregular shape of the cornea and sometimes the lens within the eye. We compare the shape of an eye with astigmatism to a football rather than a spherical basketball. Astigmatism can be corrected with contact lenses or surgery. Astigmatism often causes glare around lights, especially at night, and can cause the images your eyes see to look stretched or slanted. A proper fitting contact lens for astigmatism will focus light properly on the retina so you can see clearly. These lenses are weighted at the bottom to keep them in place and focus the light properly.
Contact Lenses for Bifocal / Progressive / Reading Glasses Wearers
Contact Lenses for Bifocal / Progressive / Reading Glasses Wearers Do you wear readers over your contacts? Do you take your glasses off to read? Are you tired of wearing your bifocals or progressives all the time? Ask our optometrists about multifocal or monovision contact lens options so they can help determine the best lenses for your needs. Multifocal contacts allow both eyes to see far away and up close while monovision contacts correct one eye for distance and one eye for reading.
