Contact lenses when used properly are very convenient. The latest advancements in technology make contact lenses today extremely comfortable. Most of the time you’ll hardly know you’re wearing them and you’ll certainly notice how clear and accurate your vision is.
Contact lenses are small lenses worn on the surface of the eye, called the cornea, to correct vision. Lenses are sometimes worn for cosmetic purposes only. We recommend wearing contact lenses in conjunction with eyeglasses. This allows you to best meet your overall lifestyle needs while protecting the integrity of your overall eye health.
Our optometrists in Millersburg, OH will discuss the option that’s best for you. Many patients choose contact lenses for their primary vision correction and back-up glasses. Many patients who wear glasses have activities and events where they’d rather not wear their glasses and choose contact lenses for these times.
Fortunately for those who don’t like the look, feel or inconvenience of reading glasses, there is another option. Bifocal and multifocal lenses are also available in contact lenses in both soft and Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) varieties.

Challenges such as astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes needn’t be a barrier to contact lens wear, but they do require more time and patience.
Although more expensive than monthly and bi-weekly contacts, daily disposable contact lenses are an increasingly popular alternative.
These rigid lenses aren’t as popular or well-known as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision and high oxygen permeability.
“I can’t wear soft contacts; I have astigmatism.” This once-true statement is now simply a myth.
