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.

When patients need vision correction, they can wear either prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. Many people choose to have both, so that their vision needs can be met in any situation. For example, if you wear contacts during the day that need to be removed at night, you will want to have eyeglasses that you can wear when you contact lenses are removed. At ours San Antonio optical store, patients are able to get many different types of contact lenses as well as great eyeglasses.

At our store, The Eyeglass Shop, our therapeutic optometrist is Dr. Paul A. Darrow. Dr. Darrow is able to treat and diagnose diseases of the eye, and provide patients with prescriptions for contact lenses and prescription eyeglasses. Once you get a prescription at our optical store, you will be able to purchase your needed eyewear at our practice, all under the same roof. At our San Antonio optical store, we offer many different types of contact lenses to meet our patients’ needs and personal preferences. Our optometrist specializes in providing patients with contact lens prescriptions and fittings for hard-to-fit contact lenses.

At our practice, patients can purchase multifocal contact lenses, Toric lenses that are worn for astigmatism, spherical contact lenses, gas permeable contact lenses, and purely cosmetic color contact lenses that make it appear as though the color of your eyes have changed. At our practice we also now offer daily contact lenses. Daily contact lenses are disposable contact lenses that are worn for one day and then replaced. These lenses have a slow-release moisture formula; it works with your tears to create a cushion of moisture around the lens. This ensures that the lenses are extremely comfortable for the entire day. These daily contact lenses have a thin lens design and feel very natural on the eye. They help to reduce halos, glare, and blurriness, even in low light or night situations. When you purchase contact lenses at our practice, we offer free shipping with the yearly supply of contact lenses. We also offer any manufacturers rebates when they apply. We also can provide free trial contact lenses when you have an emergency. We are happy to provide patients at our San Antonio optical practice with free contact lens solutions. We also offer all different types of soft contact lenses as well as rigid gas permeable lenses. If you wear contact lenses, we hope that you will make The Eyeglass Shop your source for contact lenses and optical care.

The two basic types of contact lenses are soft and hard (referred to as gas-permeable or rigid, also). Soft lenses can further be broken down into various sub-categories. These typically include daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and color-changing. And now there is also a daily disposable available as one of our contact lenses in San Antonio. By providing a moisture barrier that works together with your tears, these contacts keep a barrier of lubrication between the lenses and your eyes, making them even more comfortable as well as providing you with great vision.

No matter if you are nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, or you have more than one of these eyesight issues, our contact lenses in San Antonio are able to address the concern with bifocal or multifocal contacts. Or for astigmatism, toric contact lenses are extremely effective. Hard lenses are generally the most suitable for addressing severe nearsightedness or astigmatism and they tend to offer sharper and clearer vision than soft lenses do. On the other hand, soft lenses are typically easier to get accustomed to and they have more choices to fit your lifestyle. With daily wear, you can put them in each morning and keep them in for up to 18 hours before taking them out and cleaning them. Extended wear lenses can be worn overnight. Traditional disposables are worn just one time before being discarded for the next pair. And color-changing give you the opportunity to “try on” a new set of eyes with a totally new eye color. They’re like a fashion accessory. And you can wear them even if you have no need for vision correction.
