Contact lenses in Lady Lake
If you’re considering getting contact lenses, you have different options available. When you choose contact lenses you want to make sure that they are comfortable and that they are the right type for your particular vision problem. Two very common types of contact lenses in Lady Lake to consider are soft and rigid gas permeable.
Soft contact lenses are able to correct nearsightedness (myopia), far sightedness (hyperopia), blurred vision (astigmatism) and age related loss of close-up vision, presbyopia. Soft contact lenses are a very popular choice because they are more comfortable to wear than rigid gas permeable. There’s less light sensitivity with soft contacts as opposed to rigid gas permeable contact lenses. There’s also less of a chance that dust and other foreign objects would reach under the lens. Since they rarely fall out of the eye, they are the ideal choice for those who play sports. However, they do have some disadvantages. There is a higher rate of infection and less durability with soft contacts compared to gas permeable contact lenses. They can be more expensive than other lens types because they need to be replaced more frequently. Rigid gas permeable contact lenses have many benefits. They provide better vision and are also much more durable than soft lenses. Unlike soft lenses that need to be replaced frequently, gas permeable lenses can last for years. Rigid gas permeable contact lenses are good for: people who need contact lenses after refractive surgery, people with presbyopia, people with keratoconus; a condition in which the cornea is cone shaped and causes extreme visual distortion, and for some people with astigmatism; those who can’t get the desired visual acuity from soft lenses.
