Contact lenses are another option available to anyone in need of nearsighted,
farsighted or astigmatism correction. Contact lenses offer a solution to those
who feel restricted by eyeglasses while also offering an alternative to
corrective surgery such as Co-Manage LASIK Surgery. Another benefit to contact is that they offer
a full, unobstructed view as opposed to eyeglasses.
If you are first time contact wearer then it is important to schedule
an appointment with your eye doctor. During this time you will undergo a
comprehensive eye exam by your doctor. Your doctor will also discuss the
options available that will best fit your prescription, your eye
structure and your tear production to determine the best lens for
optimal eye health.
There are many kinds of contacts that can be categorized as
- The material they are made of (hard, soft, and GP lenses)
- Length of wear (daily and extended wear)
- Frequency of disposal (disposable, daily disposable, frequent
replacement and traditional lenses)
- Lens design (spherical, bifocal, orthokertology, and toric)
- Additional features (dry eye contacts, colored lenses, special
effects, prosthetic lenses)
