Contact lenses come in a wide variety of options these days for people seeking eye care in Terre Haute. Soft lenses are very popular and contacts such as rigid gas permeable lenses are useful for some conditions. You can find lenses that fit your needs, there's a variety of options for everyone.
How Long Are Contacts Good For?
How long the contact lens is intended to be worn for is another variable. Daily disposable lenses are worn for one day, from morning until bedtime, and then thrown away. Daily disposable contact lenses are the healthiest for the eyes. Other kinds of disposable lenses are intended to be worn during the day and taken out at night for cleaning, and can be worn for two weeks or up to a month. Some lenses are approved for continuous wear, which means that you don't have to take them out at night for a period of time and can range from a few days to a month.
Special Contact Lenses For Specific Eye Conditions
Contacts for astigmatism are common, and even come in daily disposable and extended wear options. Certain brands of contact lenses also offer UV protection built in the lens to help protect the eye from harmful rays from the sun. Presbyopia is another condition that can now be treated with contact lenses. These type of contacts enable you to see far away and up close without the use of glasses. Even patients with conditions like dry eye and keratoconus can usually find a contact that works for them.
Of course, contact lenses can also be used to spice up your appearance. Cosmetic colored lenses are available in both prescription and non-prescription forms. All kinds of colors are available, from natural to vibrant shades.
A contact lens is similar to a standard vision exam. We will measure the refractive error to determine what kind of contacts you might need, measure the front curvature of your eye for the perfect fit, as well as assessing your general eye health. You can always ask what we are doing at any point during the exam.
