If you’re considering contact lenses, we want you to be aware that they have come a long way, even in just the last few years. Our Brooklyn contact lenses are more comfortable and provide better vision than at any time before. The two basic categories are soft and rigid, or gas permeable. Soft lenses are also subdivided further into four types to suit your needs and preferences. At Brook Plaza Ophthalmology, we will help you to select the ideal contacts.
Rigid contact lenses take a little more effort to grow accustomed to than soft lenses do, but they have two very big advantages. First, they offer sharper and clearer vision. And second, they are typically the best option for addressing severe nearsightedness or astigmatism. If you find that you are comfortable wearing rigid contacts, you will enjoy the benefits that they provide. On the other hand, soft lenses are typically very easy to wear, even for first time users. The four types you can select from are daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and color-changing. Let us explain more about what to expect from each when it come to our Brooklyn contact lenses.
Daily wear are put in each morning and can be kept in for up to 12 hours. If you would like the opportunity to wear your contacts for longer, possibly even overnight, you should consider extended wear. For those who prefer to use one pair of contacts for only a short time before discarding them, disposable are the best option. And finally, there are color-changing lenses, which allow you to enjoy trying a completely new eye color, even if you don’t need vision correction at all. To get started with our Brooklyn contact lenses, schedule an eye exam with our optometrist. It’s vital that we determine the precise prescription that you need so that you can see the very best that you’re capable of. In addition, we will fit your contact lenses to you, ascertaining that they are comfortable and centered properly, without the likelihood of causing any irritation to your eyes.
