At Spare Pair Vision Center, our Matawan opticians often suggest the use of prescription contact lenses for common refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, among other eye conditions. If you feel that contact lenses are a good choice for your own vision correction needs, it is important to consider the pros and cons before making a final decision.
Firstly, contact lenses are often chosen over prescription eyeglasses because contacts do not cover up your face or obstruct your vision in any way. On the other hand, some people find contact lenses to be difficult to put in and take out, or uncomfortable to wear due to dryness or irritation of the eyes. They also tend to be less cost effective than purchasing and wearing a pair of prescription eyeglasses because contact lenses need to be re-ordered much more often than eyeglasses need to be replaced. On the plus side for contact lenses, our Matawan opticians have so many different brands and types of contact lenses to offer that there is usually the perfect lens to suit each patient’s needs and budget. Spare Pair Vision Center has both soft and hard or gas-permeable contact lenses that are available for many different kinds of wear, like daily, disposable, extended wear, and more. Our vision experts can help you decide if contact lenses would be best for you based on your vision needs, budget, and medical history.
