Contact Lenses Q & A

What are contact lenses?

Contacts are plastic lenses you place directly on your eye’s surface. They provide vision correction without the hassle of glasses or surgery. Some contact lenses can also correct minor cosmetic issues or change your eye color.

There are many types of contact lenses. Some are hard while others are flexible. Toric contact lenses help correct vision problems like astigmatism. Newer multifocal contact lenses can even function like bifocal eyeglasses. No matter your vision problems, there is likely a type of contact lense that will suit your needs.

Am I a good candidate for contact lenses?

Contact lenses provide high-quality vision correction. They are also a convenient option for people who prefer not to fuss with glasses. If you're an athlete or have an active lifestyle, contact lenses may be your best bet. But contact lenses aren't right for everyone. You'll need to take responsibility for cleaning, changing, and storing your contacts daily.

How do I care for my contact lenses?

If you choose contacts, Dr. Nguyen will first help you choose the right type. A+ Vision Optometry can provide detailed care instructions. Your contacts will have a unique care plan and replacement schedule.

Some contacts lenses are changed each day. You put in fresh contacts in the morning and dispose of them at night. These contacts can be the most convenient, as there is no need to clean or store them. But, daily disposable contacts can be expensive.

Contacts that last longer can be more cost-effective, but you may need to clean and store your contacts each day. Some lenses can be worn overnight, but this isn't an option with all contact lenses.

Dr. Nguyen will let you know how often you need to remove, change, or clean your contacts. Follow all her instructions carefully. Skipping certain steps can lead to dangerous eye infections.

Should I contact my eye doctor if have problems with my contact lenses?

Report any problems with your contact lenses to the A+ Vision Optometry office right away. If you notice any symptoms of an eye infection, it's important to get treatment right away. You should also seek medical care if you injure your eyes while wearing or removing your contacts.
