Whether you are just tired of wearing eyeglasses or realized you have a particular vision condition that needs to be corrected using contact lenses, getting suitable lenses can be challenging. At Today's Vision Barker Cypress, we will guide you on which contact lenses are right for you, based on your eye condition and lifestyle. We will advise you on how to take care of your lenses and how to insert and remove them. So, which lenses are right for you? That answer varies from patient to patient.
Contact lenses require proper maintenance. Our eye doctors will give you advice on how to take care of them to avoid getting eye infections. We might also recommend you use disposable lenses that don't require high maintenance. These are ideal if you do not want to clean and disinfect your contact lenses every day.
Rigid or Soft Lenses
Our optometrist will help you choose either soft or rigid eye lenses. The soft ones are the most common and are comfortable even for starters. Rigid contacts are often considered uncomfortable. Their benefit is that they are cheaper than the soft ones, and they provide sharper acuity.
Contact lenses come at different prices. What determines the cost includes the lens type, effects on the eyes, brand, and how long they will be worn. It is a good idea to consider the prices of the available lenses and choose the ones that fit your budget.
Some contact lenses have to be removed overnight. If you would like to have lenses that you can comfortably wear at night, our eye doctors can prescribe them for you. However, some eye problems can prevent you from wearing contact lenses overnight. We will first examine your eyes and determine whether you are safe to wear the lenses overnight.
Contact lenses can change the appearance of your eyes. These can also be used for beauty purposes rather than correcting vision problems. However, even if they are for beauty only, you still need to visit an optometrist so they can choose the right fitting and prescription.
If you have eye allergies, you might experience some discomfort when you are wearing contact lenses. Talk to our eye doctors about these allergies before you get the lenses.
