If you are considering contact lenses, you will want to speak with an optometrist. Contact lenses are great but they are not a good fit for some people and some lifestyles. Furthermore, some patients need special contact lenses. If you are a resident in the greater Fountain Valley area, contact Dr. Dao at Fountain Valley Optometry to learn more about contact lenses.

Why Some Folks Prefer Contact Lenses

Why should you ditch your glasses for contact lenses? People often prefer a glass-free look. With contacts, you don’t have to wear glasses. That said, cosmetics aren’t the only benefit of contact lenses. If you play sports, wearing glasses can be rather difficult. With many sports, you can wear contacts while playing and don’t have to worry about your glasses falling off. This way, you can perform at your best.

Some people simply find glasses uncomfortable to wear. Meanwhile, many of our patients find that contacts are comfortable and easy to wear. Contacts move with your eyes, allowing more natural, consistent vision. You also don’t have to worry about your contacts fogging up when it is wet or rainy outside. If you would like to learn more about contacts and eye care, you should speak with our optometrist to explore your options.

Are There Drawbacks to Contacts?

If you have irregularly shaped eyes, regular contacts might not fit. Likewise, if you have dry eyes or eyes that aren’t getting enough oxygen, regular contacts could be detrimental to your eye health. Fortunately, you can often use specialty contacts to increase the oxygen flow and not dry out your eyes.

Contacts can be a bit tricky to put in at first. Our eye doctor will show you how to put the contacts in, and with practice, it should become quite easy. There is also a risk that your contacts will fall out during the course of your day. It is smart to keep an extra pair of contacts or glasses around in case that happens.
