At AAPECS Atlantic Eye Care, we understand that refractive errors may prevent you from completing your daily goals efficiently. They may also affect your visual health and overall well-being. This is why we make sure to offer high-quality and reliable eyewear for your improved eyesight and quality of life. Choosing whether to use contact lenses or eyeglasses, however, may be harder than you thought. Let your trusted optometrist discuss the highlights of each option to help you pick your perfect pair.
Contact Lenses Pros
Apart from unmatched visual clarity, contact lenses also offer improved eye comfort. They easily conform to the shape of your eyes, allowing you to enjoy greater visual access. This also means you’ll have a reduced risk of developing image distortions. You’ll be able to interact with others and carry out your daily tasks more naturally too. This is why many athletes and individuals with active lifestyles prefer using them.
Contact lenses have a replacement schedule, like daily wear lenses that are ideally used once only. This is a reliable strategy to protect your eyes from lens-related complications, such as extended wear, irritations, or even infections. They also come in different colors that add to their aesthetics.
Eyeglasses are effective, reliable, and safe to use by anyone at any age. We can customize your lenses to address your visual acuity needs and apply special coatings, like UV and blue light protective layers, for your eyes’ enhanced protection. The lenses can also keep harsh winds and foreign matter from entering your eyes.
Eyeglasses are positively associated with a lower risk of having eye infections and irritations. They are also relatively easier to use and maintain. You can enjoy cost-efficient benefits too. If ever you’ll need to have lens power adjustments, you have the option to re-use your old frames and we’ll just change your lenses. Our on-site glasses laboratory ensures you’ll be able to use your new specs in no time. We’ll make sure to help you find the perfect frames that complement your face shape as well as match your personality and lifestyle.
