Choosing the Right Contact Lenses

Choosing the Right Contact Lenses with our San Antonio Optometrist

Contact lenses provide you with a convenient way to see clearly if you prefer not having to wear eyeglasses. However, it is important that you get the right type of contact lenses to correct your vision. At Vision Source Castle Hills, our eye doctor in San Antonio can determine which kind of lenses would suit you best.

Types of Contact Lenses

There are several kinds of contact lenses available for you to choose from. The kind that will work best for you depends on certain factors, including your lifestyle, comfort level, and eye problems. In general, you can choose from disposal soft contact lenses, daily wear lenses, extended wear lenses and rigid gas-permeable lenses, along with specialized contact lenses for astigmatism or other vision problems. Soft lenses are more comfortable for some people, while others prefer rigid gas-permeable lenses. Daily wear lenses are ones that you take out and clean each day, while extended wear ones are lenses that you leave in for longer periods of time. Disposable lenses are ones that you toss and put in a fresh pair each day.

Specialized Contact Lenses from Our San Antonio Optometrist

At Vision Source Castle Hills, we can help you find the right contacts for certain eye conditions. Toric lenses can help you see better when you have astigmatism, for example, while spherical lenses might work better for myopia or presbyopia. Other types of lenses offered at Vision Source Castle Hills include multifocal or bifocal contact lenses for those with age-related vision problems. If you are unable to wear regular contact lenses due to a vision problem, our eye doctor will make sure that you find the right lenses.
