Contact lenses today are available in a wide variety of choices to not only address every kind of vision correction, but also to suit every taste, lifestyle, and comfort level. They can be tailored to you as an individual and at Maplewood Vision Care, we’re pleased to be your source for prescription contacts, from your eye exam all the way to your fitting and beyond. Our Maplewood contact lenses give you a more natural vision than eyeglasses do and they don’t impeded your peripheral (side to side) vision either. So, regardless if you’re nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, or some combination that requires a bifocal or multifocal solution, you can find what you need right here.
The first decision in selecting contact lenses is between soft lenses and rigid, also known as gas-permeable, lenses. In general, soft lenses tend to be more comfortable and easier to get used to, while rigid lenses provide sharper and clearer vision, particularly in addressing nearsightedness and astigmatism. This, of course, can vary somewhat from person to person. This is why we offer our expert advice and guidance throughout the process to help you find which of our Maplewood contact lenses are the perfect ones for you. Among soft contact lenses, you also have the options of daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and color changing. Daily wear are worn from first thing in the morning until you go to bed at night, for up to a total of 18 hours. They’re then removed and cleaned and ready for the next day. Extended wear are similar but can be worn overnight. Disposable are worn for the day and then discarded. Color changing allow you the pleasure of having a different eye color, trying on a new look. They’re even available with no vision correction, to be used as a fashion accessory.
It’s important that your contacts fit properly and that there are no problems with your eyes that might cause complications. That’s why before you buy our Maplewood contact lenses, we’ll make sure that the key parts of your eyes- such as your corneas, eyelids, and conjunctiva are throughly checked. We’ll also make certain that the fit of your new contact lenses is right and feels good on you.
