While contact lenses and glasses both provide similar correction for vision problems, there are some advantages to using contact lenses. First of all, many people find contact lenses to be more comfortable to wear than glasses. The contacts don't fog or steam in weather, they don't slip on the nose or put pressure on the ear, and they don't obstruct one's appearance. In addition, contacts can provide better correction for people with conditions such as a high astigmatism, and those requiring a high degree of distance correction.Contacts also allow for better peripheral vision than glasses do.
The two main types of contact lenses available are semihard-gas permeable and soft. These vary in their characteristics and their uses. For more information on the advantages of wearing contact lenses, consult us at (248) 650-2255. We will perform a complete eye exam to recommend the best lenses for correction of your myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and/or presbyopia.
