Our Eye Doctors Offer A Wide Selection of Contact Lenses
Contact lenses are an extremely popular type of vision correction. These small, discreet lenses can correct many common vision issues, from nearsightedness or farsightedness to presbyopia. The type of contacts you wear depends on your particular needs and goals. Here at Dr. Weberling and Associates, we help Bristol and Wise residents make smart contact lenses choices while providing high-quality products and fittings.
Different Types of Contact Lenses
If you've never looked into getting contact lenses before, you might be surprised at the sheer number of options available in this category of vision correction. Each type of contact lens has its distinct benefits and advantages. Examples include:
- Soft Contacts: Soft contact lenses are a popular choice for uncomplicated prescriptions because they offer great comfort and convenience.
- RGP Contacts: Rigid gas-permeable contacts can provide crystal-clear correction for more complicated refractive errors.
- Dailies: Dailies are lenses intended for one-day use, after which they must be cleaned or replaced. The disposable kind are an attractive option for people who would rather not bother with cleaning and sterilizing their contacts.
- Extended-Wear Contacts: Extended-wear contact lenses can be worn 24/7 for days at a time without endangering your eyes. They're useful if you're not fond of constantly inserting and removing contacts.
- Multifocal Contacts: Multifocal lenses can correct presbyopia, a condition that affects near focus starting in middle age. These specialized contacts include both near-vision and distance-vision segments.
- Scleral Contacts: Scleral contacts cover the entire cornea, resting on the sclera of white of the eye. They can correct for severe corneal irregularities such as keratoconus. They also help to preserve eye moisture in dry eye sufferers.
Contact Lens Exams From Our Eye Doctors
Selecting the right kind of contact lenses becomes much easier after you've undergone a contact lens exam. Our eye doctors perform this exam after determining your prescription from a standard vision exam. We will consider the strength of your prescription, the nature of your vision problem, your lifestyle preferences, and any underlying eye conditions when recommending a particular type of contact lens. We also measure your eye structures carefully to ensure optimal comfort, safety, and vision correction for your new contacts.
