Optometrist in San Antonio Talks Contact Lenses
At Vision Source Castle Hills we offer a wide variety of contact lens types. Our optometrist in San Antonio offers lenses for traditional and hard to fit prescriptions, including:
Disposable contact lenses
The most popular type in the U.S. You use these lenses for one day, then throw them away after use.
Daily wear contacts
These are taken out and cleaned each night so they can be reused daily.
Extended wear lenses
These can be worn for weeks at a time before being removed.
Rigid gas permeable contacts
These generally give clearer vision than traditional soft lenses.
These are for patients with unusual vision correction problems such as toric lenses to correct astigmatism.
These lenses are worn overnight to correct mild to moderate vision problems.
Colored contact lenses
These lenses change or enhance the color of your eyes.
San Antonio Optometrist Talks Contact Lens Care
Each variety of contact lenses has their own method of cleaning. When you come in to get fitted for your new contacts, our San Antonio optometrist will teach you all about how to clean and care for your lenses. These are some general rules for cleaning all lenses:
- Wash your hands and rinse them well before cleaning your lenses
- Always use fresh solution. Reusing solution can spread germs that cause infection
- Use the correct cleaning solution, not saline solution, to clean your contact lenses
- Rub your contacts with your fingers, then rinse them with cleaning solution afterward
