At West U Vision our optometrist in Houston our lenses in all different types. We offer both soft contacts, the more popular kind, and gas permeable, better known as GP lenses. Both have different benefits. We provide lenses specifically for patients who have astigmatism as well.
The most common types of contacts are soft contact lenses. They can be worn by patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Contacts of this type include daily wear, meaning the lenses can be worn for up to 12 hours. Daily wear lenses need to be removed and cleaned at night, however. After you receive your comprehensive contact lens exam for contact lenses San Francisco, we’ll discuss which lenses are right for you and how to decide the right kind. It has never been easier to order contacts than at our offices, where you can take home a box right after your appointment. Contact lenses help to correct vision and are comfortable and easy to wear, depending on the type of lens you choose. Our optician will perform a refraction for glasses or contact lenses.
Hard contact lenses are the other kind of contact lenses San Francisco that we offer. They are also known as rigid or gas-permeable lenses. GP lenses allow patients to see as sharply as possible, however, there is an adjustment period because they are harder to get used to and do not have the same comfort level that soft contacts do. GP lenses can correct nearsightedness and astigmatism. Our optometrist in Houston professional eyewear staff is trained to answer all of your questions and help assist you in finding the right contacts for you. We also provide on the spot filling of prescriptions so that you can have your eyeglasses or contact lenses right away.
