Contact lenses are a great alternative to prescription glasses for many people. If you are particularly active, contact lenses may seem like a necessity – swimming, running, and contact sports aren’t the most convenient practices when you wear traditional glasses. When deciding to make the switch to contact lenses it is important to consider all options and make an informed choice with the help of your eye care professional. Finding the ideal contact lens can take some trial and error, since you need a current written prescription from your eye doctor to buy contact lenses. You can’t simply shop around on your own once you know that you need contact lenses.

Desio contact lenses 

Desio contact lenses are a “luxury brand of color contact lenses”. These lenses are available as prescription lenses as well as non-prescription lenses for cosmetic purposes. They come in fourteen different colors to alter your natural eye color and provide you with the eye color that you’ve always wanted!

Hard contact lenses 

Hard contact lenses are more formally known as rigid gas permeable contact lenses. These lenses are made, in part, of silicone which promotes the passage of oxygen through the lens to the eye. Although they may not feel as comfortable as soft contact lenses when you are first adjusting to them, they do become more comfortable with time. They also offer many benefits over soft lenses including better visibility, durability, and longevity.

Smart contact lenses 

Smart contact lenses are being developed by several different companies. These lenses will be able to do various technological tasks ranging from checking blood sugar to taking photos and video directly from the eye. While it remains to be seen how effective these smart contacts will be, and whether or not they’ll actually improve vision, one thing is for sure – the future of contact lenses will be here before we know it!

Multifocal contact lenses

Multifocal contact lenses are a good option for those who develop presbyopia, the inability to focus on objects close up, such as reading material. Adjusting to multifocal lenses doesn’t need to be difficult. There are multifocal soft lenses and hard lenses, so you can continue to wear the type of lens that is most comfortable for you. You can also choose between a traditional bifocal style lens and a progressive lens that changes more naturally.

Contact lenses come in a variety of materials, colors, prescriptions, and with the addition of smart contact lenses, purposes! This is great news for those who need contact lenses because you have the ability to select the exact contact lens that is right for you. To purchase contact lenses you need a prescription from your eye doctor. Your eye doctor will likely recommend a specific contact lens to you, but don’t be afraid to do your research and have questions prepared. There are so many options out there, it is important to find the best option for your eyes!
