Why Switch to Contact Lenses?

Contact Lens Feature July Header Image (2)

Contact lenses have become an immensely popular choice for millions of individuals seeking an alternative to traditional eyeglasses. With advancements in technology and a wide range of options available, contact lenses offer the wearers a convenient and comfortable way to achieve clear vision while maintaining an active lifestyle. What makes people make the switch to contact lenses?

  1. Enhanced Visual Freedom:

Contact lenses provide wearers with a sense of visual freedom that is unmatched by traditional eyeglasses. Unlike glasses, which can restrict peripheral vision and create reflections or distortions if not correctly made or if not positioned perfectly on your nose bridge, contact lenses sit directly on the eye, providing a more natural field of view.

  1. Improved Comfort and Convenience:

There is continual development in the contact lens industry, specifically designed with comfort and ocular health in mind. They are made from oxygen permeable materials that allow oxygen to reach the cornea – ensuring healthy and comfortable wear throughout the day. Additionally, contact lenses eliminate the hassle of carrying and maintaining glasses, providing another option for those on the go. Whether you’re traveling, exercising, or participating in various activities, contact lenses offer the freedom to see clearly without the limitations of glasses.

  1. Correcting a Range of Vision Issues:

There are numerous variables in a contact lens prescription, allowing your TEC Optometrist near you to personalize your prescription to your specific needs. Whether you are nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, or require multifocal lenses – there are plenty of contact lens options to address your specific needs.

  1. Customized Comfort and Fit:

Every individual’s eyes are unique, and contact lenses can be tailored to fit those specific needs. Optometrists and eye care professionals can assess your eyes and prescribe contact lenses that are the right fit for you. Factors such as lens materials, base curve, oxygen permeability/breathability, UV protection, Blue Light Blockers in certain brands, and moisture retention are taken into consideration to ensure optimal comfort and vision.

  1. Enhancing Sports Performance:

For athletes and sports enthusiasts, contact lenses will be your go-to vision corrector. Unlike glasses, they do not hinder performance, as they remain stable on the eye during vigorous activities. Whether you’re playing soccer, running, or engaging in water sports, contact lenses provide clear vision without the worry of glasses slipping or getting damaged. Contact lenses can also increase depth perception by providing vision correction at the source, the surface of your eye.

Multifocal Contact Lenses:

Multifocal contact lenses have also emerged as a revolutionary solution for individuals who require vision correction for both near and distance vision. As we age, our eyes undergo changes to the shape and structure of your eye, leading to presbyopia (a condition that affects the eye’s ability to focus on objects up close). Multifocal contact lenses address this issue by providing clear vision at various distances, eliminating the need for multiple pairs of glasses or constantly switching between different eyewear.

One of the significant advantages of multifocal contact lenses is their convenience. They offer wearers the freedom to enjoy clear vision without the hassle of carrying multiple pairs of glasses or constantly switching between different eyewear. Whether it’s reading a menu, using a smartphone, or driving, multifocal contact lenses provide a smooth transition between various visual distances, allowing wearers to go about their daily activities with ease.
