Getting a new pair of contact lenses is not as cut and dried as you may think. Even if you have a contact lens prescription, there may be new contact lens options that there are now available for you. If you would like to learn all about Maplewood contact lenses, and the types of contact lenses we have available, why not pay us a visit at Maplewood Vision Care?
Our Maplewood eye care practice is owned by Dr. J. Dennis Delesio – a skilled optometric physician who is committed to helping his patients retain the highest level of vision possible. If you are in need of a contact lens exam and prescription, he will be able to expertly examine and fit your eyes for contacts. He will also be able to inform you about the Maplewood contact lenses that we have available at our practice, and discuss with you which options will work best in your individual situation.
Maplewood contact lenses are available in many different types. Among the contact lenses we offer are soft contact lenses and hard contact lenses. Hard contact lenses are also called rigid or gas-permeable lenses. In certain vision situations they may offer sharper vision, and so will be recommended by our optometrist. Soft contact lenses are the most commonly used contacts today, due to their extreme comfort they offer to the wearer. Soft contacts are now available as multi focal lenses, bifocal lenses, as well as for astigmatism. The different types of soft lenses that we have are: daily wear lenses that can be worn up to 18 hours a day but are removed at night for cleaning and to rest the eyes; extended wear lenses that can be worn overnight for several days in a row; disposable wear contacts that are worn for one day and then thrown out – you will always have fresh lenses; and color-changing lenses that can make it appear that the color of your eyes has changed. These are available even if no vision correction is needed – however, you will still need a contact lens exam and prescription for proper fit, and to make sure that your eyes are healthy enough to use contacts.
