Expert Eye Care and Contact Lenses Evaluation
Finding the best contact lenses requires a thorough examination by a trained eye doctor. At Exquisite Eye Care, we have office in Houston. We can help you find the right contact lenses to fit your personal eye care needs as well as your lifestyle.
Why Wear Contact Lenses?
Many people like the freedom of not having to wear glasses. Wearing contacts sometimes gives the wearer clearer vision since peripheral vision may be distorted at the edge of the eyeglass lens. If you're very active or spend a lot of time outdoors, you may also prefer to wear contact lenses. Glasses can get damaged during activity, fog up, and easily get splattered when it rains.
What are Different Types of Contact Lenses?
There are different types of contact lenses to choose from. There are hard and soft contacts. Soft lenses are normally larger, more flexible, and provide greater comfort. Hard lenses have become more comfortable in recent years and provide advantages such as retaining their shape, and correcting most types of astigmatism. They also come in a variety of colors.
There are also daily wear and extended contacts. Some people choose to use both types, with disposable lenses for traveling and extended wear most other times. Contacts tend to provide the wearer with more natural vision and easily move with the eye.
How Can an Optometrist Help?
Conditions such as dry eye make it more difficult to comfortably wear contacts. This doesn't mean, however, that individuals suffering from dry eye can never wear them. Our optometrist will begin by giving you a comprehensive eye exam. If you're struggling with a condition such as dry eye that has made wearing contact lenses difficult in the past, our eye doctor will recommend certain brands that will work for you. We will also consider your lifestyle and fashion preferences. For instance, you will want to consider whether or not you want contacts you can sleep in or those you remove on a regular basis.
