There are many reasons why you may choose contacts over eyeglasses to correct your vision. A popular one is that you can enjoy improved vision without any obvious change to your facial appearance. Others include having a more natural type of vision and maintaining your full range of side-to-side (peripheral) vision. Here at The Eyeglass Shop, we are pleased to offer you a full array of our San Antonio contacts, with something that not only suits any vision requirements that you have, but also meets any lifestyle preference that you want them to.
With an eye exam at our store, our optometrist can determine just what type of vision correction you need and write you a prescription that is ideal for it. Of course, we will fill it right here for your convenience. And we also do a contact lens exam and fitting, because we want you to have the best possible experience and one that is free of problems when you wear our San Antonio contacts. There are two basic types of contact lenses: soft and hard (also called rigid or gas-permeable). Each has its advantages. Hard contacts are generally considered the most effective option for treating severe nearsightedness or astigmatism. Also, they provide sharper and clearer vision than soft lenses do. However, they may not be as comfortable as their soft counterparts, although with time many people do grow accustomed to them. Soft lenses give you four types to select from: Daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and color-changing. Daily wear can be kept in for up to 12 hours. Extended wear give you more flexibility, even allowing you to keep them in overnight. Disposable are worn just a single time and discarded. Color-changing let you have the fun of a whole new eye color, even if you don’t need vision correction.
With all the possibilities, you’re going to be very happy with our San Antonio contacts. Schedule an eye exam with us to get started.
