There are some of us who would prefer not to wear eyeglasses as a solution to correcting poor
vision, for a variety of reasons – physical discomfort, lack of aesthetic appeal, and social stigma are among the many. If you would like an alternative to eyeglasses, please do not hesitate to contact the Las Vegas office of Shannon Chandler, O.D. and Lesa Davis, O.D. to discuss contact lenses as an option. You may be very pleasantly surprised.
There are many selections of contact lenses to choose from; our Las Vegas office will help you assess and decide the lens type that suits your needs and preferences. Keep in mind, contact lenses do not come in a standard, one-size-fits-all type. Rather, there are many lens options depending on the type of vision you have, the shape of your eye, and your desired wearing schedule.
The most popular contact lenses on the market are the soft contact lenses. These thin lenses are known for their pliability and comfort —Some wearers don’t even feel them on the eye. Within the soft contact lens type there are sub-categories, some of which include: daily disposable lenses (single-use), extended wear lenses (for overnight wear), two-week lenses, monthly lenses and color-changing lenses. Hard-contact lenses, on the other hand, are rigid alternatives designed to help those who are afflicted by astigmatism, a curvature on the cornea causing distortion of the vision. Astigmatism cannot always be adequately corrected with soft lenses. Hard lenses are excellent for providing sharp vision – they are not, however, as comfortable as soft contact lenses. Hybrid lenses are yet another option, having a rigid center with a soft skirt on the outer portion of the lens. These provide the sharp vision of a hard lens, with the comfort more akin to a soft lens. Browse our selection of contact lenses in our Las Vegas office soon to get your vision on the right track.
