Contact Lenses – NYC
People make the switch from eye glasses to contacts for many reasons, from occupation to style preference. As contact lenses become more and more versatile and comfortable, more people are indeed making this switch. Let East Village Vision provide you with the contact lenses that are the best fit for you.
Not sure if you’re ready for contacts yet? Consider the following information before making a decision, as there are many different styles of contact lenses NYC to choose from.
Soft contact lenses
Soft contact lenses conform to the shape of your eye and are made of a gel-like substance. Extremely comfortable, these are a great alternative to eyeglasses lenses for those involved in sports. They come in single use, daily wear, and extended wear varieties..
Hard contact lenses
Also known as rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses, hard contact lenses are generally smaller and a bit more rigid in shape than soft lenses. Many people feel that hard contact lenses are not as comfortable as soft lenses, but they make up for this in the fact that they are much less likely to cause eye ailments such as corneal irritation. Gas-permeable lenses also can correct certain vision problems, such as refractive errors that require high spherical or cylindrical powers, more accurately than can soft contact lenses.
Specialized contact lenses
No two people’s eyes are alike and such a wide variety of eye care needs calls for the occasional need for specialized contact lenses such as:
- Hybrid contact lenses – These are a great option for those that have an irregular corneal curvature (keratoconus). They are also suggested for patients that have had trouble with gas-permeable lenses in the past.
- Bifocal contact lenses – These offer patients two prescriptions within one contact lens. Bifocal contacts correct distance vision while also improving near vision. These are great for regaining or correcting age-related loss of close-up vision.
- Monovision contact lenses. Similar to bifocal contacts, these lenses offer two solutions in one: one lens holds your reading prescription while the other helps to improve distance vision.
