Considering all of the advantages that contact lenses offer, we at Romie Lane Optometric Center are pleased to offer a wide variety of them for you to choose from. We have both soft and hard lenses, as well as options that specifically address keratoconus, presbyopia, and astigmatism, in addition to the more typical ones to correct nearsightedness and farsightedness. No matter what your needs or your lifestyle preferences, our contact lenses in Salinas include something that is ideal for you. Today’s contacts, both soft and hard, are much more comfortable to wear than ever before, and they provide a more natural type of vision than eyeglasses do, without hindering your side-to-side (peripheral) eyesight.
For many patients, soft contacts are the easiest to get accustomed to, due to their flexibility. They are available in four basic types: daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and color-changing, with bifocal and multifocal selections also offered. Which of our contact lenses in Salinas are best for you? Daily wear are put in each morning and can be worn for up to 18 hours before you have to remove them for cleaning. On the other hand, extended wear lenses can be kept in overnight, as well as during the day. With disposables, you will wear them just for a single day and then discard them in favor of a new pair. As for color-changing, they give you the exciting possibility of trying on an entirely new eye color, just for fun. As a matter of fact, you don’t even need vision correction to enjoy them. Get color-changing contacts strictly as a fashion accessory if you so choose.
So if soft contacts are so great, why would you want to even consider hard lenses? Also called rigid or gas-permeable, these lenses provide even sharper and clearer vision than their soft lens counterparts. They’re also a great option for severe nearsightedness or astigmatism. They do, however, take longer to adjust to, and some people may not find them to be comfortable. Our optician will work with you to determine which of our contact lenses in Salinas is perfect for you.
