Are you thinking about wearing contact lenses for the first time? Or, do you currently wear contact lenses but your contact lens prescription has expired? If either case, you will want to visit us at Maplewood Vision Care where you can be seen by our optometrist, Dr. Dennis J. Delesio, for a new contact lens prescription; our optician Hillside can also talk to you about the different contact lens options available to you.
Today there are many different contact lenses offered by our optician Hillside. At our vision practice you can purchase both hard lenses and soft lenses. Today, most patients who wear contact lenses have their vision corrected with soft lenses because soft lenses are extremely comfortable and easy to get used to. They also come in many different styles to help meet your everyday needs. However, some patients still feel that they receive the best vision correction from hard contact lenses. This may be especially true if you have astigmatism. Contact lenses can also now be bifocal, which means that you can have two different distance corrections in one pair of contact lenses. This can mean that you do not need to use reading glasses anymore in order to see clearly, close-up. Soft contact lenses come in different styles including disposable lenses, daily wear lenses, extended wear lenses, and color-changing lenses. Disposable lenses are worn once and then replaced with a new pair. Daily wear lenses are worn during the day and then removed at night to clean the lenses and to rest your eyes. Extended-wear lenses can be worn for many days before they need to be removed for cleaning. And, color-changing lenses can make it appear as though the color of your iris has changed. Our optician helps you determine which the best color-changing lens to purchase is in order to receive the color change that you are seeking.
There is no appointment needed to come in to meet with our optician Hillside. For an appointment to see our optometrist for a vision exam, simply contact our office.
