Contact Lens Services
There are many contact lens options available. Options include:
- Daily Wear: Worn up to 14 hours during the day, then removed and cleaned at night
- Extended Wear: Some contact lenses are approved to sleep with on your eyes
- Disposable: Monthly, two-week or daily disposable contact lenses are available
- Spherical: Lenses that correct for nearsighted (myopic) or farsighted (hyperopic) eyes
- Toric: Lenses that correct for astigmatism, as well as myopia and hyperopia
- MonoVision: One eye corrected for distance, the other eye for near
- Multifocal/Bifocal: Each eye given help for distance and near. Provides more balanced vision than MonoVision
- Color: Some contact lenses are available in color, even if vision correction is not needed
- Keratoconus: Specialized contact lenses for eyes with thinning corneas
Some of the potential reasons to wear contact lenses:
- It is possible to wear non-prescription sunglasses while wearing contact lenses for your vision correction
- Many patients prefer how they look without eyeglasses
- Peripheral vision is better with contact lenses than with eyeglasses
- Straight ahead vision often is better with contact lenses than with eyeglasses. Since vision correction is away from your eyes with eyeglasses as opposed to on your eyes with contact lenses, there can be visual aberrations and distortions with eyeglasses compared to vision with contacts.
- With many eye conditions, such as keratoconus, vision is very likely better with contact lenses than with eyeglasses.
- How your vision functions is often better with contact lenses. For example, with bifocal/multifocal contact lenses you have vision focused at distance, intermediate and near wherever you look because the lenses are on your eyes. With bifocal/multifocal/progressive eyeglasses you must look through certain parts of the lenses for the distance you want to view.
