Contact lenses, much like glasses, are not going to last you forever. If your contacts either don’t fit as well as they used to, or you have noticed that you don’t have the same clarity of vision that they offered when you got the prescription, contact our office for an evaluation.
Our optometrists will talk to you about what is and isn’t working with your contact lenses, perform a thorough eye exam to see what has (or hasn’t changed) since you last got your prescription, and then make some recommendations about which contact lenses would be a good fit.
Contact lenses are a wonderful alternative to glasses. If you live an active lifestyle, glasses can easily get in your way, get lost, or get broken. If you don’t like the way that glasses look on your face, a set of contact lenses can keep you looking like yourself while providing you with the boost to your eyesight that you need.
Can I Wear Contact Lenses?
Contact lenses have come a long way since they were first invented in the late 1800s. While the first lenses were glass and covered the entire outer surface of the eye, advances in technology have allowed for modern lenses to be light, breathable, safe, and comfortable in a way that many people who wore glasses in the past probably only dreamed of. Over the last few decades many advances have allowed people with a variety of eye conditions to wear contact lenses. Contacts are now available for people with:

The Different Kinds of Contact Lenses
There are several types of contacts currently on the market. Each has their own advantages and drawbacks, but when you come in for a contact lens evaluation with an optometrist at Visions Optique and Eyecare in Scottsdale, they will provide you with the best options for your specific needs.
Soft Contact Lenses
Soft contact lenses are the more comfortable option. Soft lenses are made from a flexible material that sits lightly on the eye. While they feel comfortable, soft lenses aren’t ideal for every type of eye, and there is more of a risk that you could get an infection from soft lenses which is why it is vital that you follow the optometrist's directions as closely as possible..
Daily-Wear Soft Lenses
These lenses are the easiest for your eyes to adjust to, and they are more likely to stay in place when you are playing sports or working out. Daily-wear lenses are not as tough as hard lenses and require special cleaning. Some versions are worn for a day and then thrown away while others can last for several months.
Extended-Wear Soft Lenses
Extended-wear soft lenses offer all of the same benefits that daily-wear lenses offer, but they last longer. That makes it even more important that they are removed and cleaned every day.
Hard Contact Lenses
Hard contact lenses offer the best visual clarity and are built to last longer than soft lenses. They can slip out of the eyes more easily, and they can take longer to get used to, but they may be the right choice for you based on your specific needs.
We Accept Insurance
