Contacts offer the convenience of sharp eyesight without bulky eyeglasses. They are also a great way to show off your natural beauty. However, purchasing contact lenses isn’t the same as buying a new accessory for your wardrobe. Before you buy a box of contacts, you need a thorough eye exam and contact lens fitting in to determine your accurate prescription. Even if you wear eyeglasses, your vision prescription for contacts isn’t the same. Our contact lens eye care specialist will evaluate your vision and measure your eyes to determine your prescription for lenses.

Here is a basic rundown of the different contact lenses on the market:

Soft Contact Lenses

As the most popular type of contact lens worn in the US, soft lenses are typically comfortable within seconds after insertion. They are composed from a flexible material, such as silicone hydrogel, that conforms smoothly to the shape of your eyeball. Therefore, they stay in place well – even if you lead an active lifestyle.

Soft contact lenses effective for many vision prescriptions and eye conditions, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. In our Akron, OH, collection, we offer soft lenses for every wearing schedule: disposable dailies, regular daily wear lenses, and extended wear weekly and monthly contact lenses.

Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses (GP)

Sometimes, soft lenses cannot achieve crisp enough vision or high wearing comfort. In many of these cases, hard lenses are a great alternative. Hard, rigid gas permeable lenses give excellent vision for many complex eye conditions. They have a high oxygen permeability, which makes them breathable and reduces the risk of eye infection. Hard lenses can take a few weeks to get used to, and they must be sterilized nightly. We have fit many satisfied Akron, OH, patients with hard contact lenses.

Specialty Contact Lenses

Were you once told that contact lenses are not an option for you due to a challenging vision condition? In the past, conditions such as dry eye syndrome, presbyopia, keratoconus and astigmatism made it impossible to wear lenses comfortably. Nowadays though, the release of many new materials and technologies has made it possible for almost everyone to wear contact lenses. Our optometrist will consider your individual needs and take the time to fit you with hard-to-fit, specialty contact lenses from our full Akron, OH, inventory. Depending upon your requirements, we may prescribe bifocals/multifocal contacts, toric lenses, hybrid lenses, or scleral lenses.
