At Bright Eyes Optique we offer comprehensive contact lens examinations for both new and previous contact lens wearers. We offer disposable contact lens options, rigid gas permeable (RGP), and specialty lens designs. Disposable contact lenses are used most of the time and, can be broken into the categories of: single use (daily), two week, one month and quarterly (being phased out) replacement wearing schedules. In each of these categories lenses are available for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and multifocal options. Color lenses are available to change or enhance an individual’s eye color. Contact lenses are medical devices and are regulated by the FDA. A valid prescription is required to purchase contact lenses.
For the new contact lens wearers, training is provided from qualified opticians that will thoroughly explain and teach you how to properly wear and care for your contacts. If you’ve always thought contact lenses were not an option for you, you might be surprised to find out that as many as 95% of people who wear glasses can consider wearing contact lenses too. Or, if you’ve tried contacts in the past without success, you may want to give them another try, because there are many new materials and lens options available.
Contact lenses offer various benefits over spectacle wear and refractive surgery. Compared to spectacles, contact lenses enable more ease of wear during sports and leisure activities by providing a wider field of view, less chance of dislodgement, less susceptibility to fogging. Contact lenses also allow sunglasses and protective eyewear to be worn on top without any hassle.
As more people discover the advantages of contact lenses, the use of this form of vision correction is increasing around the world. So, whether you are thinking of swapping your glasses for contact lenses, or simply want the option to wear them occasionally, Bright Eyes Optique can help you find the best lenses to suit your needs.
