When it comes to the contact lens wearers the most important factor to consider is comfort
While style and design do matter to some degree, often a far more important factor is what type of comfort the contact lens provides. This can vary greatly depending on the shape of your eye and the amount of care you take with your contact lens. For instance, soft contact lens is usually made out of water-based, gel-like plastics called hydrogel. These lenses require very little care and are extremely thin and flexible, which makes them ideal for the many users who enjoy wearing contact lens.
Soft contact lens differ to regular contact lens in that they do not need daily wear, only extended wear contact lenses. These contact lenses can be worn daily for as long as recommended by the wearer, although many people prefer to have their contact lens out for longer periods of time. These contact lenses also come in a wide variety of colors including gray, blue, brown, black, green and even red. There are even “cool” colors and designs such as skulls, butterflies, dolphins, and stripes. The main difference between regular and extended wear contact lens is the length of time the contact lens is worn, which is typically longer for extended wear contact lenses.
choosing your contact lens is what type of lens solution you would like
One final consideration for choosing your contact lens is what type of lens solution you would like. There are basically two types of contact lens solutions. Acuvue offers a line of “PA” contact lenses, which work quite well and are easily available at your local optician. The biggest downside to these contact lenses is that each individual lens does not come with its own solution so you will need to purchase the solution separately. Also, there are generally more discounts for these types of contact lenses.
If your vision has improved dramatically but your eyes are dry or your sight is very poor, you may require a “graded” contact lens. These are often called “graded” lenses because they improve and restore your vision with each application. These contacts are generally much more expensive than the traditional acuvue contact lenses but your eye care professional will be able to advise you on which contact lenses will best meet your needs and vision improvement goals. It is important that you seek the advice of your eye care professional before changing your prescription lenses as they may have different benefits which you may not need. Many times your eye care professional will be able to give you a referral to a contact lens manufacturer in your area who can help you find the perfect fit for your glasses.
One type of contact lens is the soft contact lens
They are generally one-day disposable lenses; however, some companies offer a two or three day disposable lens option. One day disposable contact lenses allow the oxygen-rich liquid the chance to permeate the eye for longer periods of time providing oxygen to the eyeball.
While there are many benefits to wearing one of these lenses, there are also a few disadvantages. One of the biggest disadvantages is cleaning the lenses regularly-usually once per day. This can be a challenge if you are a busy person and do not want to spend time cleaning your lenses during your lunch break. Wearing these lenses for extended amounts of time, may cause irritation to the eyes if you wear them without washing them first.
