What type of contact lenses do you carry?
Can I wear contacts while I sleep?
We do not recommend sleeping with contact lenses on a regular or long-term basis. While you’re asleep, your eye is a dark, cozy place. Bacteria flourish in dark, warm environments. There are FDA-approved contact lenses for sleeping, but they must be removed and thoroughly cleaned once a week.
When should my child’s eyes be examined?
Vision is usually tested as part of a child’s medical evaluation. If there is any indication of an eye issue, they may refer the youngster to an ophthalmologist.
When should an adult’s eyes be examined?
Adult eye exams should be performed on a regular basis. Young adults between the ages of 18 and 39 should be checked every 3 to 5 years. Seniors should have their eyes checked every 1 to 2 years, while older adults should have their eyes checked every 2 to 4 years.
At what age can someone start wearing contact lenses?
Typically children start using contacts at the age of 12 or 13. Daily or 1-Day lenses are easier for children and teens because they require zero maintenance and are a safer option for younger wearers.
What are scleral lenses?
Your vision problems may be remedied with a scleral lens, as these specialty lenses help treat eye disorders. Scleral lenses are worn by patients who have eye disorders or injuries to protect the surface of their eyes.
What is glaucoma?
People who have glaucoma have elevated intraocular pressure in their eyes. Glaucoma is a disease that slowly robs a sufferer of their peripheral vision without them even realizing it.
