  1. You can save money on your contact lenses. Contacts are designed to be replaced every day, every two weeks, or every month. It is better for contact lenses to be replaced often because contact lenses that are not sterile can harbor bacteria and lead to corneal ulcers. Bacteria can actually burrow into the contact lens material and cause damage to your eye. Using contact lenses longer than recommended increases your chances of getting a corneal ulcer. 
  2. You can show off your style. 

Although contact lenses come in many colours, the number of colours is endless with contact lenses! There are contact lenses that mimic every colour of eyes and even some that glow in the dark or change colors depending on your surroundings. 

  1. You can add more variety to your wardrobe. 

Contact lenses for every occasion, from contact lenses that mimic the color of your eyes to contact lenses with a design on them, such as hearts or stars, contact lenses have something for everyone! If you like wearing contacts and would like an array of contact colors and designs, contact lenses are a great option. 

  1. Your contact lenses won’t get in the way of your life. 

Wearing contact lenses will not take away from your everyday activities! You can wear contact lenses while being active and playing contact sports without worry. Because contact lenses provide oxygen to your eyes, they do not dry your eyes out and cause them to be itchy. Instead, contact lenses keep your eyes comfortable and safe. 

Contact lenses offer a variety of options when it comes to correcting your vision. In fact, many people simply believe that they are stuck wearing glasses for the rest of their lives if they are diagnosed with a refractive error. This, however, is not the case! 

Single-Vision Contact Lenses 

Contact lenses are a good way to correct one’s vision without having to wear glasses. There are different types of contact lenses, but if you have astigmatism, you will need to get special lenses made specifically for that condition. Astigmatism occurs when the cornea is not perfectly round, 

which causes distorted vision. The special lenses for astigmatism correct this distortion, allowing you to see clearly again.

If you are interested in getting contacts to correct your vision, be sure to talk to your doctor about whether or not contact lenses would be a good option for you. They can help you decide which type of lens would be best for correcting your specific type of astigmatism. Contacts can be a fantastic alternative to glasses, and with the right lenses, can give you clear vision without any distortion. 

Special Contact Lenses 

Contact lenses are a good alternative to traditional glasses for those with refractive errors. There are a variety of contact lenses available on the market today that can cater to each individual’s specific needs. Whether you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, there is a contact lens that can help you see clearly. 

If you have a diagnosed refractive error, be sure to talk to your optometrist about the different types of contact lenses that may be available to you. There is no need to live with blurry vision when there are so many great contact lens options available. Contact lenses can help you get back to seeing clearly in no time! 

If you’re considering contact lenses, it’s important to get a prescription from a trusted optometrist. During your exam, the optometrist will measure the curvature of your eye and other factors to explore and choose the best type of contact lenses for you. 

Multifocal and Toric Contact Lenses 

Most people think of contact lenses as a way to improve your vision. But did you know that contact lenses also help with other issues like astigmatism and presbyopia? 

Multifocal and toric contact lenses can normally correct unique refractive errors, so you can enjoy contact lens experience that single-vision contacts could never have provided you! If you have presbyopia, multifocal contact lenses perform in the same way your bifocal glasses might, rendering different zones of focus with different prescription strengths. 

Benefits of Contact Lenses 

Wearing contact lenses has its benefits. Not only do they look more natural than glasses, but they also do not obstruct your vision or reflect anything in view. In addition, they provide an entire field of focused viewing, which is vital for drivers and sports players. And unlike eyeglasses, contact lenses are light to wear and do not result in discomfort when applied and cared for properly. 

Another great benefit of contact lenses is that they do not fog up, even when you’re wearing a medical facemask. This is important for those who work in environments where visibility is key, such as doctors and surgeons. And if you’re worried about the sun’s UV radiation and pollutants affecting your eyes, contacts can be a line of defense against these threats.

So if you’re looking for a better way to see the world, contact lenses may be the perfect option for you! 

Before you can enjoy the benefits of contacts, you need to get a prescription from an optometrist. So if you’re thinking about making the switch to contacts, be sure to schedule an appointment with our team at Mountain Eye Care today. Click here to find our contact information.
