In recent years, contact lenses have become an increasingly popular alternative to the more traditional, but still in fashion, glasses. Contact lenses can bring the same level of vision improvement while being less movement-restrictive and requiring less care. Additionally, unlike glasses, contact lenses don’t block vision from the side, so you can enjoy a wider periphery of vision.
Our optometrists in Longmont CO are experts in contact lenses, and we can help you get started with a contact lens exam. Together, we will choose from a variety of types of contact lenses in order to find the right fit for you.
Finding the Right Solution for You
If you think you might want to switch to contact lenses, our optometrists will walk you through every step of the way. We’ll start with a contact lens exam where we assess your vision and potentially take additional measurements. Then, we work with you to identify the right type of contact lens for your eyes.
As mentioned before, we offer a variety of types of lenses. With the help of your optometrist, you can choose from:
- Soft lenses or silicone hydrogel lenses, which are similar to soft lenses but allow for more oxygen to the eye
- Gas permeable lenses, which are slightly more rigid, providing a different aspect of vision corrected which is needed for some people
- Toric lenses, shaped differently than the more common lenses and may work better for certain vision impurities
- Multifocal lenses, known for correcting presbyopia
- Scleral lenses which are for specific types of corneas
In addition to vision-correcting lenses, our Eagle Vision and Eye Clinic in Longmont, CO also provides an opportunity to purchase lenses with different purposes. For example, you might want colored lenses to change the color of your eyes, or lenses that protect against UV light. We even offer contact lenses designed to correct issues in your cornea.
