Are you Thinking About Contact lenses?
If you don’t have 20/20 vision, you may be wondering if you can correct your sight with contact lenses. This may help with sports, your profession, or simply be a lifestyle choice.
Soft Disposable Contact Lenses – The Benefits
Contact lenses sit directly on your eye to correct your vision. Some of the benefits include more natural vision than with glasses, safety when playing sports and avoiding problems experienced with glasses wear (fogging up, pressure on the nose).
Soft contact lenses are extremely comfortable and can be used to correct almost all prescriptions. If you tried contact lenses before and didn’t enjoy wearing them, it’s time to give them another try. New lenses have come a long way. Recent advances in bifocal and multifocal contact lens technology make these a great contact lens choice for people over 40 who require near vision corrections.
At Westmead Eyes Optometrists we provide all leading brands of high-quality disposable contact lenses, including daily, fortnightly and monthly lenses. In most cases, we can supply your lenses within two business days.
Custom Soft Contact Lenses
When standard soft lenses do not meet your comfort or vision expectations, custom soft lenses are an obvious next choice. Standard contact lenses are only available with certain lens parameters. If your prescription falls outside of these parameters, custom lenses may be your only option.
Custom lenses can be manufactured with different shapes, sizes, and prescriptions. Since the lens is customised to your exact prescription, the success rate is very high. Custom soft lenses may also be an option for patients suffering from keratoconus or corneal transplants.
