While glasses are often exciting and fashionable many people still find there are times when they would like an alternative. Such as: while playing sports, at formal functions or even when they are looking for a change in fashion. Today contact lenses offer freedom from glasses, comfort due their many shapes and materials, and the convenience of knowing you can replace your lenses as you go.
The Optometrists at Dr. Coward and Associates are trusted and knowledgeable suppliers of contact lens in the Belleville, Trenton and Brighton areas. Contact lenses are medical devices which sit on the eye. Contact lenses can be used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia.
There are many different lens materials and lens sizes. The Optometrists at Dr. Coward and Associates will work with you to determine the contact lens that best fits your lifestyle . They will use their specialized equipment to make sure that the lens fits well on your eyes. This is important to prevent infection and other ocular problems. Soft disposable contact lenses, the most popular type of contact lenses, are available in a daily, biweekly, or monthly disposable. This means that the lens must be thrown away after one day, two weeks, or one month, depending on the brand.
As well as prescribing the best contact lenses for healthy vision our Optometrists will advise you in the ideal solutions for properly cleaning and storing your lenses. The cleaning and lens storing system is very important. If you do not follow the contact lens care regimen recommended by your Optometrist, you may get an eye infection.
It is important to care for your contact lenses appropriately and if you are experiencing any pain, discharge or redness, to discontinue your contact lenses immediately and see your optometrist.
Whether you need spherical one day lenses, toric monthly or multifocal one day disposables, contact lenses are a convenient and safe alternative to glasses. Speak to our Optometrists at Dr. Coward and Associates today about whether you are a candidate for contact lenses.
