Are you considering making the switch from eyeglasses to contact lenses? If you are, it can be difficult to choose the right contact lenses for you. Modern contact lenses are quite versatile and offer some exciting options. You can show off a pair of green eyes one day and then flash baby blues the next day.
If you have vision problems, contact lenses remain an almost invisible and effective tool. They fit over the cornea to correct problems such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. Even if you have presbyopia, you can still wear contact lenses. To determine the best type of contact for you, talk to your eye doctor.
Contact lenses are adaptable, customizable, and convenient to many people’s lifestyles. If you have been using contacts for a long time, you probably have a favorite brand. If you are considering switching to contacts, however, you need to do some homework to choose the right brand for you.
There are so many contact lens brands on the market that it can be difficult to choose the right one for you. It is somewhat misleading to claim that there is a “best brand of contact lens” for everyone. However, you can determine the right brand for you based on certain metrics that make it possible to compare one brand to another.
Before purchasing any type or brand of contact lenses, you need to consider how you are going to use them. It is important to get the ones that fit your lifestyle.
Length of Wear
You can reuse some contact lenses for several days before you have to replace them. Depending on the type of lens, this can mean one week or up to one month. In most cases, these are soft lenses. You will also find single-day contact lenses and overnight wear lenses. Your eye doctor will help you make the right choice.
Rigid or Soft
Contact lenses are either rigid or soft. It is important to choose the right type for you. Soft lenses are more common since they tend to be more comfortable for new users. Rigid lenses, on the other hand, are gas permeable and provide sharp visual acuity. Also, thanks to their durability, they are less expensive in the long run.
Your Specific Needs
Do you have specific eye or vision-related needs? If you do, you need to find out what they are before purchasing a pair of contact lenses. If you have eye allergies or dry eyes, it may be uncomfortable for you to wear certain types of contact lenses.
The following are some of the most popular FDA-approved contact lenses from major brands. Each has a large following of wearers. These include Acuvue®, Biofinity®, DAILIES, Air Optix, and Proclear®.
