Contact Lenses Q & A
Am I a good candidate for contact lenses?
If you’re seeking a comfortable and easy alternative to eyeglasses, contacts could be a great fit for you. Contact lenses also offer maximum viewing field and clarity, which can help in nearly every aspect of your life.
What vision problems do contact lenses treat?
Contact lenses can correct any type of refractive error. If you have one of these vision problems, contact lenses could be an easy-to-wear solution:
Myopia is nearsightedness, in which your eye is too long or your corneas are overly steep. This disrupts light focusing and leaves clear close-up vision but causes blurry distance sight.
Hyperopia is farsightedness. This means it’s difficult to see well close-up, but you can view objects with reasonable clarity at a distance.
Astigmatism means blurred vision caused by cornea or eye lens distortion. It typically happens simultaneously with myopia or hyperopia.
Presbyopia means focusing difficulties close-up. It occurs as the eye loses its natural elasticity over time and usually starts at around age 40.
You can choose from single-prescription, bifocal (two prescriptions), multifocal (multiple prescriptions), toric (astigmatism), and various combinations of these lenses.
Do I still need glasses if I get contact lenses?
If you get contact lenses that correct all of your refractive errors, it’s still a good idea to have a pair of glasses in your current prescription. You might simply want to take a break from contacts occasionally.
Also, you could sometimes have allergies that make your eyes too itchy to wear contacts, or you might occasionally tear or lose a lens. In these scenarios, it’s good to have a backup pair of glasses.
