CONTACT LENSES

Contact Lens FittingAre you tired of glasses but are not yet ready to consider surgical options? Contact lenses may be a great alternative for you.

A contact lens is a thin plastic lens placed directly on the surface of the eye. Contact lenses are considered medical devices that can be worn for many different reasons such as to correct vision, cosmetic reasons (to change eye color), or for therapeutic reasons (bandage lens to help protect and heal the corneal surface).

Contact lenses are available to correct a number of vision issues including:

  • Spherical contact lenses: typically corrects nearsightedness or farsightedness
  • Toric contact lenses: corrects astigmatism

Presbyopia corrections presents an additional challenge because of the need for a reading prescription and a distance prescription. Two main strategies exist when correcting this condition.

  • Multifocal contact lenses that are comparable to bifocal or progressive lenses with both distance and near correction.
  • Monovision contact lenses use spherical contact lenses to correct one eye for distance and one eye for near vision.

Contact lenses Port CharlotteIn most cases, contact lenses typically provide better vision, especially peripheral vision. We fit all types of contact lenses (soft, rigid, normal, and difficult to fit) with a goal of decreasing the dependency on glasses and providing the clearest concise vision.

It is important to keep in mind that contacts need to be properly fit by an Eye Doctor. Proper insertion, removal, and care for contacts is required to maintain eye health. Improper fit or care for contacts can result in permanent ocular damage and loss of sight. Trust the Doctors at Community Eye Center to provide you with your entire eye care needs with their many years of experience and enjoy vision without the burden of glasses.
