Soft Contact Lense
Across the globe, millions of people have chosen contact lenses to bring the world around them into focus. Soft contact lenses in particular are a popular choice because they are comfortable, affordable, and extremely easy to use.
Soft Contact Lense vs. Glasses and Hard Lenses
Most people who have worn glasses know that they can be a hassle. They can slip off, fog up, break, or be easily lost. Soft contact lenses are the perfect solution to these inconveniences. Moisture and suction help them adhere to the tear layer over the cornea, making them much more secure than glasses. They don’t break or shatter like glasses, and they are almost always tinted a very light blue, making them easy to spot if you drop one! People of all ages will also appreciate the aesthetic appeal of lenses, which don’t block the face like glasses, and are available in many different tints to alter eye color. While there are some benefits to hard contact lenses, it can take a month or more to adjust to their rigidity, and many people feel that the shape and flexibility of soft contact lense make them far more comfortable.
How do they work?
Soft contact lense are prescribed to correct all common vision problems, such as nearsightedness (myopia), far sightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism (blurred vision) and presbyopia (close vision problems). Lenses are orb-shaped, like the eye, and the moisture in the tear layer over the cornea helps them to adhere. They come in a variety of types, ranging from single-use to longer wearing lenses that you can sleep in! They are quick and easy to clean, making them a low-maintenance option for people on the go. Talk with your doctor to determine which type of soft contact lense are best suited to your health and lifestyle.
