Contact lenses are a great alternative to wearing glasses for individuals with myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism or presbyopia. Contact lenses are popular because of their practicality, their aesthetic and, of course, the comfort and freedom they provide.

While certain people only wear contact lenses, others hesitate to wear them because of the inconveniencesthat may arise. It is important to note that there are many advantages to wearing contact lenses.

First, contact lenses provide a superior correction for your vision because they are placed directly on the eye's surface, on the cornea; each lens moves in tandem with the eye, which allows for a broader peripheral vision. What's more, a frame or lenses will never obstruct your vision.

In terms of aesthetics, wearing contacts instead of glasses exposes your facial features. Wearing contact lenses means a broader selection of sunglasses is available to you because you don't have to worry about adding prescription lenses to the pair of your choosing.

Contacts are also more practical when practicing your favourite sports, especially swimming and racket sports. Another great advantage is that contact lenses never fog up regardless of whether you're in the heat, the cold, or going from one to the other!

To purchase contact lenses, make an appointment with your trusted Optometrist.Following a complete eye exam, your eye care professional will be able to advise you on contact lenses that are adapted to your prescription and your lifestyle.
