Wearing glasses may not be right for everyone. To you, they may feel uncomfortable and burdensome, and you may even misplace them frequently. If that’s the case, then contact lenses may be a better choice. At Paragon Eye Associates, we provide consultations for contacts to help you get the prescription and comfort you deserve. Schedule an appointment for an evaluation today to learn more.
How Do Contact Lenses Work?
Contact lenses work in a similar way to eyeglasses. The difference is that they are round lenses that are placed directly on the eye’s surface as opposed to being placed in front of the eyes. Contacts correct your vision by focusing light on the back of the eye. Like glasses, contacts come in a variety of powers.
Why Are Consultations for Contacts Needed?
Consultations for contacts are needed because you need a prescription to purchase them in the United States. This requirement is in place because contacts are not “one size fits all.” Moreover, due to their placement, the strength of your contacts may be different from the strength of your glasses. So, an evaluation of your vision is needed to determine your ideal prescription.
When to Choose Contacts Over Glasses
Contacts offer several advantages over glasses. For one, contacts conform to the curvature of your eye, providing a wider field of view. They also cause fewer vision distortions and obstructions than eyeglasses. Along with this, they offer practical benefits such as not getting in the way during day-to-day activities and exercise. Moreover, contacts are typically not a visible accessory and therefore won’t clash with your clothes.
