For many, glasses aren't the perfect solution. Some may need to constantly adjust them to get proper vision correction and others might stress the irritation of having mostly clear vision but a blurry peripheral where the lenses don't reach. Contact lenses provide vision correction no matter where you look, without the adjusting and cleaning that glasses require. If you're looking to explore your options regarding contact lenses, visit an eye doctor in Conroe, TX, The Woodlands, TX, or Huntsville, TX with us at Avery Eye Clinic to determine if they're the right fit for you.
What Do Contact Lenses Do?
Contact lenses are small, prescription lenses that sit directly on the eye. These lenses bend light as it enters the eye to correct different vision issues. Their purpose is similar to glasses and they can correct many different conditions that affect vision. They also don't require adjusting or cleaning throughout the day like glasses do.
How Are Contact Lenses Different from Glasses?
There are multiple differences between contact lenses and glasses. One big difference is that contact lenses provide seamless vision correction. While glasses sit on your nose and cover most of your eyes, they don't reach to your peripheral. They can also be prone to movement and might have to be adjusted to provide proper vision correction. Contacts, however, move with your eye, ensuring that your vision is clear no matter where you look.
How Do I Know if Contact Lenses Are a Good Fit for Me?
An ophthalmologist on our team can help determine if contact lenses would be beneficial for you and, if you already wear glasses, discuss the changes that come with making the switch. If you find yourself touching or adjusting your glasses throughout the day, or wishing your peripheral vision offered the same clarity your glasses provide, contact lenses may be the right choice for you.
