Mountain View Vision offers many options for contact lenses.
There are a number of reasons why you might prefer contact lenses to standard eyewear:
- Hassle-free vision correction
- A glasses-free look
- Leisure activities
- No worries about misplacing your glasses
- High prescription or astigmatism
Your eye care provider can recommend the best contact lenses for you based on a complete eye examination and a review of your visual needs both at work and play. Since most people can wear more than one type of lens, it’s important to know what the choices are and the advantages and disadvantages to each.
These lenses are comfortable to wear and must be replaced monthly, weekly or daily depending on the type you choose. They can provide correction for most prescriptions including astigmatism. Today, with the introduction of newer materials like silicone hydrogels, which allow more oxygen to the eye, patients find it easier than ever to wear soft lenses comfortably.
Gas-Permeable (GP) Lenses
Made of moderately flexible plastics, GP lenses offer sharp vision and correct most vision problems. They are more durable than soft contact lenses and can be easier to handle and care for but require a longer adaptation period and consistent wear to maintain adaptation.
Daily Disposable Lenses
Daily disposable lenses are great for patients with an active lifestyle, and are often the most comfortable lenses to wear for those who suffer from eye allergies or eye dryness.
In both soft and GP designs, multifocal lenses offer patients both distance and near vision correction just like a pair of bifocal glasses.
Color Contact Lenses
Enhance your eye color or even change it completely. Colored contact lenses are fun and come in a variety of colors for both light and dark eyes.
Annual Eye Exam
Regardless of the type of contact lenses you wear, an annual eye exam is recommended to ensure the continued good health of your eyes.
