If you have difficulty seeing, your eye doctor is likely to recommend vision correction methods to help. Among the most popular of these methods is using contact lenses. At VisionSmith, Dr. Mueller in Plymouth will help you with your first set of contact lenses.
What Are Contact Lenses?
Contact lenses are small, soft lenses that are designed to go directly onto your eyeball to improve your vision. You insert them yourself and wear them according to the instructions you are provided. They work similarly to eyeglasses but aren’t as bulky. They can also provide complete vision correction, while glasses wearers will still have blurriness at the edges of their vision.
Getting Contact Lenses
If you think you might need contact lenses, our optometrist will do a contact lens exam. We will examine both your eyes and your vision to make sure we give you the correct prescription. Once we know what you need, we will provide you with a set of contact lenses, as well as instructions on how to use them.
Contact lenses are not meant to last a long time, so you will need to buy a supply of them. You also need to make sure that you use them in a safe, sanitary way. If you don’t follow the instructions, you risk developing an eye infection.
Different Kinds of Contact Lenses
There are many different types of lenses you can try. Talk to our eye doctor during your contact lens exam and let us know about your wants and needs. You can get contacts that you dispose of at the end of the day, reducing your risk of eye infection.
You can also get contacts that are better for people who have sensitive eyes. With such a variety to choose from, there is bound to be one that works for you. If your first set of contact lenses doesn’t work well, don’t give up. Instead, experiment and ask us for help.
