Types of Contact Lenses in Atascocita

There are two basic types of contact lenses: soft and rigid gas permeable. And within the soft category, there are four sub-types that you can choose from. At Today’s Vision, we’re pleased to offer you sufficient options so that you can get exactly what you want and need to see better, and to do so with the utmost of comfort.

As a general rule of thumb, soft lenses from our Atascocita optical shop are easier to get used to. And because of the flexibility they afford by being available in four varieties, they are very popular. Daily wear can be kept in for up to 12 hours. You then remove them to clean and prepare them for the next day. Then there are extended wear. You may need more than 12 hours. Maybe you want to keep them in overnight. Well, no problem there. Daily disposable, on the other hand, offer the advantage of no maintenance at all. You simply wear them once and then discard them. That’s as easy as it gets. And with color-changing, you can try on a new eye color. Have fun with it. You don’t even need to have vision correction to use them. With all of those positive features, why would you want to consider rigid gas permeable then? They provide sharper vision with greater clarity. And they are the best selection when you have severe nearsightedness or astigmatism. Let our Atascocita optical shop help you to decide on which type you want to wear. No matter what your choice is, you can experience the benefits that all contacts have over eyeglasses: they give you a more natural type of vision and full side-to-side (peripheral) vision. Also, they don’t change your facial appearance.

Call our Atascocita optical shop to arrange an eye exam so that you can get the contacts that are right for you; or to re-order for your current prescription.
