Contact Lenses

Why Choose Contact Lenses?

For those who have worn glasses their whole life, or who are in need of vision aids for the first time, the idea of using contact lenses may seem a bit intimidating. Most importantly, remember that in the end contact lenses are safe to wear, with any potential issues avoidable with proper hygiene and close care. Below are a few reasons why contacts make a great fit!

  • Clearer vision, without having to keep track of an additional accessory. Glasses can be hard to keep track of and sometimes can leave you in a dangerous situation if they’re lost or forgotten. Contact lenses are applied in the morning and then forgotten as you go about your day. You’ll never have to worry about misplacing your glasses again!
  • No changes to your personal style. Glasses can be a major difference to your overall look, and that may not be something you’re looking for. Contact lenses cause no changes to your appearance.
  • Wider field of vision. Glasses can limit your field of vision, as your vision is only clear when you view through your lenses. With contacts, you have clear vision no matter where you’re looking!
  • No more hardware when working out. Getting active and healthy can pose a problem for glasses. Sweat and activity can make it hard to keep them on, which is not ideal in any exercise or sports setting. With contacts, you don’t need to worry about anything falling off your face and preventing you from seeing as clear as you could!

What is Examined in a Contact Lens Exam?

We carry more than just glasses at All About Eyes. We also carry contact lenses for those who prefer them. Whether you’re a first time contact wearer or an old pro, exams for contact lenses include special fitting tests that are not performed in routine eye exams for eyeglasses.

So if you are interested in contacts — or you already wear them and want to have your contact lens prescription updated — make sure you say so when you schedule your appointment for an eye exam. This will ensure your exam includes extra time for your optometrist to perform additional tests needed for a proper contact lens fitting or prescription update.

We know your time is valuable and have made it easy for our patients to order new contacts. You can order online using our website and have your contacts shipped straight to your door. Plus, if your order is over $50 you’ll get FREE shipping.
