ARE CONTACTS RIGHT FOR ME?
Almost everyone can wear contact lenses. There are lenses that help compensate for poor eyesight. There are lenses to change or enhance the color of your eyes. There are lenses for age-related vision correction, a condition called presbyopia. And there are lenses for people with astigmatism, a common imperfection in the curvature of the cornea.

Aren't contact lenses very expensive?

Myth 2

Are contact lenses only for younger people?

No. In fact, the market for age-related vision correction using multi-focal contact lenses is the fastest growing product category in the contact lens market. More and more patients with presbyopia are switching from progressive glasses to multi-focal lenses or use both. Explore multi-focal lenses now.

Myth 3

Do I need to see an eye care practitioner before getting into contact lenses?

Yes. Only an eye care practitioner (ECP) can determine which lenses you need and which brands are the right ones to choose from. A lens fitting process will ensure that the technical parameters of the lens (such as prescription, base curve, diameter etc.) are optimized to the requirements of your eyes. With a valid prescription you can buy your lenses from your ECP, an optical store (e.g. local, Walmart, SamsClub, CostCo, PearleVision) or from a reputable online store.

CONTACT LENSES FOR EVERY LIFESTYLE
Contact lenses can be broken down into three major vision correction types and two major replacement types. Besides standard lenses, there are contacts for presbyopia or astigmatism as well as color lenses. And you can choose between daily disposable lenses and weekly/monthly replaceable lenses. A lot of choices? Yes. And, there is certainly a lens for your correction needs and your lifestyle. Here is a small selection of the best daily disposable contact lenses.
