Glasses are not great in the rain, they make going to the gym a hassle and they are pain to find when you need them to read the newspaper.
These days, there are a wide range of modern contact lens options to provide a convenient vision alternative to suit your lifestyle.
Many of my patients have been told that their ‘eyes are not suitable for contact lenses’, but the reality is that almost everyone can be fitted successfully.
The safest and most convenient modality is the daily soft contact lens, which are replaced each day. A fresh lens each morning improves comfort and decreases the risk of infection.
These daily lenses can now correct a range of vision problems, including astigmatism and the need for reading glasses as we get older.
Modern contact lens materials are also more comfortable than ever – perfect for people that get dry eye or have challenging work environments. This is due to advanced technologies keeping the lens surface wet all day long and allowing high oxygen flow to the eye.
Most people don’t even feel them when worn. An experienced optometrist will be able to teach you how to effortlessly insert and remove your lenses with the minimum of hassle.
If you are sick of your glasses, get in touch with your local contact lens specialist to find out which modern contact lens option can give you your visual freedom back!
