Contact Lenses

Contact lenses can be a great way to correct your vision. These small, soft lenses go directly onto your eye and can help provide you with completely clear vision. If you need vision correction, our team at Avery Eye Clinic, with an eye doctor in Conroe, TX, can help. For residents of Conroe, TX, The Woodlands, TX, and Huntsville, TX, and the surrounding area, here are some things to know about contact lenses.

Contact Lenses

What Are the Benefits of Contact Lenses?

Contact lenses are a very discrete form of vision correction. Unlike glasses, they are not visible to anybody else. If you are often in a situation where you risk damaging your glasses, contacts could be very helpful. They can also help provide a better range of vision correction. With glasses, you always have the frames in your line of vision, plus they don’t fix your peripheral vision. Contacts provide clear vision at every angle. 

There are also many different types of contacts you can use. While most are nearly invisible, there are some that can change the color of your eyes, which may be useful.

What Are the Risks of Contact Lenses?

Since contact lenses touch your eye, there is an increased risk of eye infection. It is very important that you follow the instructions an eye doctor on our team gives you about storing and using your contact lenses. If they are unsanitary, you might end up getting an eye infection. An eye infection can be painful and uncomfortable. Severe infections might even cause damage to your eyesight. Contacts may have to be replaced regularly, which can get expensive. 

If you already wear glasses, keeping your glasses as a backup can help mitigate some of the risks of contact lenses. Plus, if one tears or falls out, you can still have a way to correct your vision.

How Do I Get Contact Lenses?

In order to get contact lenses, you need a prescription from an optometrist or ophthalmologist. In order to get this, you will likely need to have an eye exam. During this appointment, the optometrist or ophthalmologist can make sure that there is no reason why contact lenses won’t work for you. He or she can also provide you with instructions on how to use them and keep them clean. You can often buy your contacts directly from the office, saving you time and energy.
