Aug 18, 2007
Technology has brought contact lenses to a higher level since they first appeared on market. They have made it possible for so many people to see better and to look one's best. It is never to late to consider wearing contact lenses instead of eyeglasses. Why not visit your eye doctor and learn how you can explore the many opportunities contact lenses has to offer you.

30-Day Contacts:

These contacts are FDA approved and can be worn up to 30 days before needing replacing. These contacts have been made from a material called silicone hydrogel. This allows more oxygen to enter the cornea, This allows for much healthier eyes. Thirty day contacts are very affordable and comfortable to contact wearers. Not everyone is suited for 30-day contacts. There is a slim chance of developing an eye infection. For the ones that can wear 30 day contacts , it could turn into an alternative for Lasik surgery or eyeglasses.

Extended Wear / Daily Wear:

Extended wear lenses can usually be worn up to a minimal of seven days and no longer than thirty days. Where as the daily wear is removed each night, and has to be cleaned before you can insert the contact the next morning. In choosing contacts it is always best to remember one's eye health. Only an experienced eye doctor can make the decision to what is the best wearing schedule and replacement schedule for you.

Daily Disposables:

Remove and replace each day. Many individuals choose these contacts due to the convenience they can give one. No caring and cleaning is involved. All one has to do is simply throw away the lenses each night and use a fresh pair the next morning. Individual's wearing daily disposable contacts have much healthier eyes. With daily disposable , protein is less likely to form. This helps in reducing risk of dangerous eye diseases.

Torics;

If you have astigmatism, you are now eligible to wear contact lenses. For a long time one couldn't wear contacts if they had astigmatism. Individual's suffering from astigmatism have a slight irregular shape toward the front surface of the cornea. This has been known to prevent light from focusing properly in the back of the eye , which is where the retina is located. Many experience blurred vision at all distances due to astigmatism. You can find toric contacts in soft lens or in gas permeable lenses. You also have the option of disposables. Let your eye doctor determine the best option for you.

Bifocal:

If you are over forty , you are sure to enjoy bifocal contact lenses. Bifocals help in correcting nearsighted individuals by allowing them to be able to read their newspapers and restaurant menus, and the other power is allowing them to see at a distance. Near vision is always located on the bottom of the lens , same as eyeglasses. You are given the option of soft or gas permeable lenses.
