Comfort is typically not a concern whether you choose soft or hard lenses, although soft lenses are usually easier to get accustomed to wearing. If you have a more active lifestyle, soft lenses may be the better option of our contact lenses in Houston. With soft lenses, you can select from daily wear (which you can keep in for up to 18 hours before taking the out for cleaning), extended wear (which you can keep in overnight), disposable (for one time use before discarding in favor of a new pair),and color-changing. These give you the pleasure of enjoying a new eye color. You don’t even need vision correction to benefit from them. Hard lenses, also called rigid or gas permeable, may take more time for you adjust to, but on the plus side they provide sharper and clearer vision than their soft lens counterparts. If you have severe nearsightedness or astigmatism, they’re the superior choice too.
There are many advantages to contact lenses compared to eyeglasses. And recent advancements in contacts mean greater comfort and eyesight improvement than ever before. Our contact lenses in Houston give you a more natural type of vision than glasses do and they won’t hinder your peripheral (side to side) vision. Perhaps most important, if you’re mainly concerned about how you look, contacts don’t alter your appearance as glasses do. If it’s been more than a year since your last eye exam or you have never worn contacts before, please call us in advance to make an appointment. If you have an existing contact lens prescription, just come on in for replacements or to select a different variety.
