There have always been good reasons to choose contact lenses over eyeglasses for your vision correction needs. They give you a more natural type of vision; they leave your full peripheral vision (side-to-side) unhindered; and they don’t change your facial appearance. And with the advancements made in lens technology over just the last few years, there has never been a better time to opt for our Las Vegas contact lenses. They now have even greater comfort and give you outstanding vision.
The process of getting contacts begins with coming in for an eye exam. In addition to the standard tests that determine if you need corrective lenses and if so, the strength that is required to meet your current vision needs, Dr. Thompson is also pleased to provide a contact lens exam. Unlike when you wear eyeglasses, contacts actually touch certain parts of your eyes. It’s important to make sure that there are no issues or concerns with your eyelids, corneas, or conjunctiva that might pose a challenge when you wear our Las Vegas contact lenses. It’s just part of our commitment to your eye wellness. The next step is for you to select the type of contacts that you want to wear. We carry both soft disposable lenses as well as rigid gas permeable ones. The rigid contacts tend to provide the most sharp and clear vision possible, as well as being the best choice for severe nearsightedness or astigmatism. Soft lenses are generally more comfortable to wear. We also have new contacts made with silicon hydrogel that allow more oxygen to pass through the lens, which is better for your eye health. And whether you need monofocal, bifocal, or multifocal lenses, we have you covered.
Regardless of which of our Las Vegas contact lenses you decide to get, you can be confident that your experience wearing them will be one of outstanding vision and comfort. Start by scheduling an eye exam by calling us right now.
