We truly live in amazing times. These days, people who opt to use contact lenses for vision correction have a zoo of options before them. This means that more people can make the switch from conventional eyeglasses to contacts than ever before in the history of optometry! Believe it or not, even people with allergies, astigmatism and vision impairment requiring bifocal correction can find a pair of suitable contacts now. The contact lens inventory here at the Whitestone optical store, Vision Center, covers the full gamut of options too, and our eye care experts are pros when it comes to matching patients with the right lenses. Not sure what all is out there contact lens-wise? If you have a spare moment, we’d like to give you the whirlwind tour.
In the domain of contacts, there are two ways lenses can be classified. One way relates to whether lenses are hard or soft; the other relates to whether lenses need to be replaced relatively often or relatively frequently. In the category of lenses that are replaced infrequently, there is a further subdivision between lenses that need to be removed and cleaned every day, on the one hand, and lenses that are designed for continuous wear. Depending on your eyes’ unique needs, some styles will be better for you than others. (Someone with eye allergies, for example, may want to opt for soft lenses that are thrown away every day.) As far as vision correction goes, like we said above, modern lenses from Vision Center — our Whitestone optical store — are able to handle a wide variety of vision problems, including farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism.
Feeling a little overwhelmed by all the options you have to choose from? That’s totally understandable! Thankfully, you won’t have to make the decision on your own. You can be sure that we here at Vision Center, our Whitestone optical store, will help you wade through our expansive stock. Are you ready to give the old glasses and frames the boot?
