Protecting your eyes from harmful UV radiation is an important aspect of eye care. Even when you have to wear corrective vision glasses, we can customize your glasses so that they transform into sunglasses when exposed to light. Polarized lenses offer innovative ways to not only protect your eyes but also enhance your vision while driving or doing any outdoor activity like trekking or hiking. Shutting out the glare so as to enable you to see objects more clearly and brightly not only enhances your visual experience but also provides respite from eye strain and prevents eye fatigue.
Corrective lenses may produce light glare or reflections which bounce of the surface of the lenses or enter through them and cause vision distractions. Anti-reflective lenses solve these annoying distractions and enhance your vision capabilities without compromising your ability to perform normal routine activities. They are especially effective when you are driving or working on a computer where extra light passing through or reflecting from the lenses can be dangerous and unproductive. In fact, the difference is plainly visible when you wear anti-reflex lenses. They make everything appear brighter and clearer.
Wearing contact lenses can be as much a personal choice as it can be a better way of enhancing your vision based on the professional recommendation of your Optometrist. In some cases of astigmatism, contact lenses may be able to provide a better and more enduring solution than wearing eyeglasses. Of course, the decision to be glass-free or perform tasks unencumbered by glasses is also a strong determinant in choosing contact lenses as an alternative to glasses. Appearance and comfort levels also are some of the other factors to consider. Technological advances have made it possible to choose contact lenses to even replace bifocal glasses. Please discuss and consult with your Optometrist or friendly staff at Pequot Eye Center to help you choose the right type of lenses.
Depending on your lifestyle and functional needs, you can choose soft contact lenses that need to be replaced daily, weekly or monthly. Your optometrist can recommend and advise you on the type of lenses available as well as how to care for and maintain your lenses. Soft lenses provide a snug and comfortable fit that allows you to take part in active sports without any feeling of inadequacy or discomfort.
Gas-Permeable (GP) Lenses
The material used in GP lenses are highly flexible and afford a greater degree of correction to the vision than most other types of lenses or glasses. They are also more durable and easy to maintain and are known to produce remarkable improvement in vision over a prolonged period of consistent use.
People who wear bifocals to combat near and distance vision correction no longer need to limit their choice to corrective eyeglasses. Contact lenses are available in soft and GP types that provide multifocal vision correction functionality. These lenses are indeed a great way to enhance your lifestyle choices as well improve your looks.
Color Contact Lenses
As a cosmetic accessory, color contact lenses have the potential to transform your appearance by changing the color of your eyes. Accentuate your looks by wearing color contact lenses. Have some fun while you make a great impression.
The material used in theses lenses provides a great level of comfort by allowing oxygen to pass through while remaining soft and flexible. They provide an alternative to GP and soft lenses according to your specific need for comfort and flexibility.
