Contact lenses are a popular choice for those seeking an alternative to eyeglasses. They provide visual correction while fitting seamlessly into an active lifestyle. During a contact lens fitting, an optometrist will measure your eyes to find the most comfortable and suitable lens type. This process ensures that the lenses provide optimal vision correction and maintain eye health.
The variety of contact lenses available includes soft lenses, rigid gas-permeable lenses, and others tailored to specific needs, like lenses for astigmatism. The optometrist will consider factors like your lifestyle, eye health, and personal preference when recommending the best type of contact lens for you.
