Contact Lenses Explained And Compared To Glasess

Many people over the past ten years have changed from glasses to contact lenses but are they really worth it? This is a question that you need to answer for yourself. Many people change to contacts as they find them less expensive to purchase and certainly less expensive to replace.

If you lead an active life well contacts are for you

Most people involved in some sort of sporting activity much prefer contact lenses and that's for the obvious reasons. Contacts are less dangerous and many sporting organisations will not let you participate if you are wearing glasses. Many parents are now opting for lenses over glasses for their children as a safety precaution. Kids live active lives and with lenses at least you have some piece of mind, if your child falls as they do, glass in the eye will not be an issue.

Change your eye color with colored lenses

Over the past four years we have seen a trend developing in colored lenses. Many people who do not even need contacts are buying clear lenses for fashion reasons. They are relatively inexpensive and it a fun way to see what you would look like with a different eye color or shade.

I'm to old too change from glasses to lenses

You are never too old to move to contact lenses. Many older people imagine lenses taking to much time to install and an expensive on going commodity. Your eye specialist will do your first installation and will prove just how easy and quickly it is to put the lenses in. The only thing I will say is that, lenses can take a few day to get used to. Your pupils need a small amount of time to adjust but once over this minor issue you will never look back.

What type of lenses do I require?

Research has shown that over 80% of people using contact lenses are currently using soft contacts. Your doctor will best advise you. You will need an eye test for lenses. This test is different to the test for glasses so you will need one.

Cleaning your lenses is very important

Always clean your lenses. Unlike glasses the lenses have to be inserted over the pupil and cleaning will keep away the risk of infection. You can purchase the cleaning solution very cheaply.

I wear glasses because I have astigmatism, can contacts help with this?

Yes they can. Toric contact lenses are used tackle people with astigmatism. Unlike most contacts these lenses remain stationary in the eye and do not move around. You can get soft lenses in the Toric range. Toric can cost a little extra but some people find them more comfortable to wear than the standard. You can also get colored Toric lenses.

What are Bifocal contact lenses?

Bifocal contact lenses are used to tackle a problem called Presbyopia. Presbyopia is a common condition suffered by many. A clear sign of presbyopia is when you need to hold the newspaper or other content further away than normal to make out the content. Bifocal contact lenses operate very similarly to that of bifocal glasses. They have dual function and tackle persbyopia depending on your vision difficulty. The lenses operate to correct distance vision and also to repair short vision. Once again you can get the Bifocal contacts in different colored lenses.

What about disposable contact lenses?

Disposable lenses are by far the most type of lenses sold today. Many opticians (eye doctors) much prefer prescribing disposable lenses. The main reason being there is less chance of infection setting in. Disposables lenses are generally cheap and sold in packs (sometimes large quantities). They tend to be changed every two weeks or less. You still need to clean these lenses even tough you are changing them regularly.

Where is the cheapest place to purchase contact lenses?

The Internet is the cheapest place according to our sources. Watch out for delivery charges. You may be getting a great deal on the lenses in general but some companies load on with hefty delivery charges. Get the delivery in order and you will find great bargains for quality branded lenses.
