Over 30 million Americans wear contact lenses, according to the American Optometric Association. Reasons range from appearance and practicality to a need for sports and activities. Unlike glasses, contact lenses move with your eyes so you can enjoy a larger field of vision with fewer distortions. Unlike glasses, contact lenses are less affected by wet weather, do not steam up, and provide a wider field of vision.
There are many different kinds of contacts, including rigid and flexible, extended wear, disposable and planned replacement lenses. Some can be made as bifocals or in different colors. After a thorough eye exam and consultation with an experienced physician, patients who qualify for contact lenses can discuss which type is right for them. All contact lenses require special care and cleaning. You'll need to make regular follow-up visits to ensure your eyes remain healthy.
Dr. Shissias, Dr. Mazur, Dr. Vivadelli and Dr. Nickolas and Dr. Shkalim are specialized in contact lenses. Their expertise includes gas permeable (hard) contact lenses and specialized contacts for certain medical conditions such as keratoconus.
We offer hundreds of types of contact lenses and are even able to offer bifocal contacts, toric lenses, monovision, colored contacts and so much more!
Why can’t I sleep in my contact lenses?
Contact lenses are made of plastic and therefore impair the flow of oxygen that reaches the cornea. The cornea has no blood flow, so it relies on the oxygen in the air to stay healthy!
