Contact Lenses That Are Just Right For You
Thanks to advancements in technology, more people can wear and enjoy contact lenses than ever before. These small thin discs are specially designed so that you can place them directly on the cornea of the eye. Eye doctors often prescribe contact lenses as an alternative to eyeglasses and to correct for vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. They may also be prescribed for people who have had cataract surgery, and who did not receive lens implants.
IlluminEyes Vision Care offers a broad selection of contact lenses from leading brands, such as Acuvue®, Coopervision®, and Hoya. Our complete line ranges from daily and continuous wear disposable, to tinted lenses and special lenses for uneven focus and bifocal use. Most often, your prescription and lifestyle will determine the best option for you.
Getting Started The Right Way
Contact lenses are essentially medical devices, so they need to be properly fitted by an eye care professional. If you want to wear contacts, you will need to first schedule a visit with an eye doctor to check your eyes and make sure you are a suitable candidate. This is true even if you just want to wear contacts to change your eye color.
Typically, contact lenses may not be a good option for people who:
- Have had repeated eye infections
- Are constantly exposed to large amounts of dust, dirt or smoke
- Have problems with eye lubrication
- Suffer from severe allergic reactions
- Have a specific vision problem or need special lenses
Reasons to Consider Contact Lenses
If you are undecided between contact lenses and eyeglasses, here are some facts to consider that might help you make an informed decision:
- Contact lenses move with your eye, allowing a natural field of view, with no frames to obstruct your vision.
- Unlike glasses, they do not fog up or get splattered by rain.
- Contact lenses let you perform regular activities that would otherwise be difficult to do if you wore glasses, e.g sports.
If you are a suitable candidate, we will discuss your options and help you select the perfect set. This includes a thorough eye examination here at IlluminEyes Vision Care, individual instructions for wear, necessary lens care kits, and follow-up visits. In most cases, your lenses can be fit and dispensed the very same day.
