4 Benefits of Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are a safe and popular choice for vision correction. Whether you recently discovered you need vision correction or you’ve had glasses for years, switching to contact lenses is an easy choice. Most people can wear contact lenses safely and comfortably. However, if you have specific questions visit our FAQ page. Understanding the benefits of contact lenses allows you to consult with your optometrist and make the best choice for your lifestyle.

1. Colored Contact Lenses

Colored contact lenses allow you to change your eye color temporarily. Additionally, they allow you to fix your vision. This way, you can wear a crazy design for special occasions or just enjoy a new eye color. The most popular selected colors are: green, blue, hazel, violet, amethyst, gray and brown. Theatrical contact lenses can create special effects to make you look like a vampire or alien, but please don’t share them! If you’re thinking about color lenses, your eye care provider can help you select the right type depending on your eye color, quality of vision, and desired appearance.

2. Active Lifestyles

If you live an active lifestyle, contacts are a great option. Since they are securely fit on your eyes, you have the extra freedom to go about your daily life without them falling off, breaking, or constantly readjusting, like glasses. Better yet, water splashes, fog, and steam won’t obstruct your vision, which makes contacts perfect for any weather. For those kids and adults who play sports or are active, contact lenses are ideal for optimal performance and comfort.

3. Better Vision

Contacts fix refractive errors, like astigmatism, farsightedness, and nearsightedness. Newer technology in lenses also allows presbyopia correction. With lenses placed directly on your cornea, they move with your eye, and you enjoy clear peripheral and central visual scenery. Not to mention, contact lenses reduce image distortions and glare.

4. Multifocal Contact Lenses

Lastly, if you’re having trouble seeing clearly both up-close, intermediate, and far distances, then consider multifocal contacts. They offer a convenient alternative to bifocal eyeglasses. These lenses work differently than bifocal glasses and offer the ability to see images at a variety of distances, offering flexibility in what you do. Multifocal lenses are easily adapted to, with proper education and fitting, and offer an excellent alternative to traditional glasses correction options.
