Contact lenses are an amazing alternative to glasses and this is especially true for people who find that glasses aren’t always practical for their lifestyle.
With recent advances in design technology, contact lenses are now more comfortable, easier to care for and more affordable.
Almost anyone who wears spectacles can wear contact lenses, including people who require multifocal lenses. New technology means contact lenses are clearer, more comfortable and more convenient than ever; they provide a full field of unobstructed vision, freedom of movement unmatched by spectacles, additional flexibility to take on new activities with crisper vision and are also a great way to update your image.
There are many different types of contact lenses on the market and you may be unsure what type of lens is appropriate for your eyes. Our optometrist, Shannon at Outlook Eye centre can help you choose a contact lens system that is tailored specifically to you.
Disposable lenses should be replaced according to their disposable time frame i.e. daily, weekly, two-weekly or monthly. Disposable lenses are the most commonly prescribed and are an excellent choice health-wise because there is less opportunity for protein and bacteria to build up on them. With daily disposable contact lenses you won’t even need to disinfect your contact lenses after each use as they are discarded each time you wear them.
