Contacts were always a great option for vision correction, but now they are better than ever. Advancements in lens technology now mean that they are more comfortable and the vision improvement they provide is even greater. That’s fantastic news, and here at Allen Eye Associates, we are proud to offer a large selection of them, including both soft and gas permeable.
It’s not exactly like our Verona contact lenses are superior to eyeglasses. It’s all a matter of taste and preference. If you appreciate having an unchanged facial appearance and the anonymity of wearing corrective eyewear that no one else knows about, then chances are that contacts are right for you. They also give you a more natural type of vision, with the angle that light travels not having to be adjusted as with eyeglasses when it passes from the lens into your eye. And when looking from side-to-side (peripheral vision), there is nothing in your way. Unlike in the past, you can now feel confident wearing our Verona contact lenses for correction of astigmatism and for multifocal use. Some of the options that we have for you are daily wear, which you can keep in for as long as 18 hours before removing them to clean for the next day; and extended wear, which can be worn for longer time periods, including overnight. If you don’t want to perform any maintenance at all, disposables are a good way to go. Wear them once, discard them, and simply grab a new pair from your container. Or choose color-changing and find out how you look to the world with a brand new eye color. You can even wear those if you don’t need vision correction at all.
