5 Great Benefits of Contact Lenses

Shady Grove Eye and Vision Care is committed to helping you achieve better visual health with our premier eye care services. We offer a range of high-quality vision correction options as a solution to refractive errors. Our contact lenses, in particular, are a popular choice because of the many great benefits they provide.

5 Great Benefits of Contact Lenses

Here are five of the things you’ll experience when you wear contact lenses:

1. Wider Visual Access

Contact lenses are placed directly on your eyes, ensuring unobstructed central and peripheral visual. This is why many individuals, especially athletes and those with active lifestyles, prefer them. They also give you accurate depth perception and a better sense of balance.

2. Sharper Visual Acuity

Contact lenses are available in different materials and lens types, with each one engineered to correct specific eye care needs. We’ll have you undergo a comprehensive eye exam to determine the best type of contact lenses to improve your eyesight. If you have keratoconus or we find signs of dry eyes, for example, we may suggest using scleral contact lenses, which are larger than regular lenses and may be more comfortable.

3. More Natural Vision

Contact lenses serve as a substitute for your irregular cornea, correcting refractive errors. Since they are securely applied to your eyes, you enjoy more natural vision than with eyeglasses. Contact lenses are also more convenient.

4. Help Maintain Your Visual Health

A common myth about contact lenses is that they cause infections. As long as you replace your contact lenses when needed and observe proper hygiene when handling them, you won’t have to worry about infection. Rest assured your eye doctor will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your contact lenses.

5. Aesthetic Perks

Another great thing about contact lenses is they can emphasize your natural beauty. They come in various colors, letting you experiment with different eye colors. You can also choose transparent ones to highlight your natural eye color.
