Contact lenses remain one of the most popular vision-correction treatments today. Many prefer using them because of the various visual benefits they provide. AAPECS Atlantic Eye Care shares five of them in detail:
Enhanced Visual Comfort
Thanks to continuous advances in lens technology, contact lenses are now made from different materials. Hybrid pairs, in particular, feature a hard, gas-permeable center that lets oxygen enter your eyes while giving you sharp vision. These contact lenses also have a soft lens skirt to avoid aggravating sensitive eyes.
Improved Visual Acuity
Like LASIK, contact lenses are usually prescribed to correct refractive errors, such as farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism. Certain specialty lenses are also best used for specific eye conditions. Scleral contact lenses, for example, have a wider diameter than regular ones that allow them to cover most, if not all, of your eye’s surface area. This particular feature makes them an ideal substitute for a deformed cornea, like those with keratoconus.
Unrestricted Peripheral Vision
With contact lenses on your eyes, you can expect unobstructed visual access. You can see objects in front of you and those at the periphery. Unlike eyeglasses, contact lenses have minimal glare (if at all) and zero image distortion.
Freedom to Do Your Daily Tasks and Hobbies
Wearing contact lenses means you can enjoy a feeling of normalcy throughout your day. You’ll be able to finish your daily tasks and hobbies hassle-free. And, you also won’t have to worry about fog, steam or water obscuring your vision, making contact lenses a great option for any weather.
Like eyeglasses, contact lenses also come available in various hues. This means you can finally see how you’ll look if you had different eye colors. You can have blue eyes today and be brown-eyed tomorrow.
