Contact lenses offer many aesthetic and lifestyle advantages over glasses, and many people prefer the vision correction they can achieve with them. The following are some significant benefits of contacts:
An exam to receive contacts is a bit more detailed than one to establish your glasses prescription. You’ll also need to commit to a slightly more diligent eye care health and lens care schedule.
Many different types of contact lenses are available today, and Dr. Patel works with you to determine the variety that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. Various versions include:
Consider the cleaning requirements, comfort level, and your goals when determining which lenses are ideal for you.
People with an irregular cornea caused by a disease called keratoconus or other corneal issues may have been informed they are not eligible for vision correction with contact lenses. At Eye Care Solutions, Dr. Patel offers scleral contact lenses that have a unique design that works for these conditions.
The scleral lens sits on the white of the eye and passes over the cornea, but never touches it. The scleral lens also provides more comfort and moisture if you suffer from dry eyes and can’t tolerate wearing contacts.
