It might be difficult to decide whether to add contact lenses to your eyewear options, but it can also be a great way to improve your vision and change your appearance. There are many different types of contact lenses available, so it’s important to choose the one that’s right for you. Let us help you at Mac Nally Opticians on the Green.

Here are some things to consider when making the switch:

Appearance: Many people add in contact lenses because they feel self-conscious about wearing glasses. Contact lenses can help you feel more confident in your appearance by giving you a more natural look. It gives you an option to change up your look and not have to wear glasses all the time.

Vision correction: Contact lenses can be used to correct a variety of vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. They can also be used to correct presbyopia, a condition that affects people over the age of 40 and makes it difficult to see objects up close.

Comfort: One of the biggest benefits of contact lenses is that they are often more comfortable than glasses in certain situations. They don’t fog up, slip down your nose, or get in the way when you’re playing sports or engaging in other physical activities.

Convenience: Contact lenses can offer greater convenience, than glasses. You don’t have to worry about carrying them around, you can travel light, adding freedom for different tasks or activities. Particularly the lens of choice nowadays, being a daily disposable, you are putting fresh new lenses into your eye everyday, avoiding the hassle of cleaning and storing contact lenses.

Safety: It’s important to follow the instructions for wearing and caring for your contact lenses to ensure that they are safe and effective. This includes washing your hands before handling your lenses, using the correct solution to clean and store them if needed, and replacing them as directed by your eye care professional.

Overall, adding in contact lenses can be a great choice for people who want to improve their vision, feel more comfortable, and change their appearance.
