Contact Lenses Q & A

How do contact lenses work?

There’s a film layer on the surface of your eye. Contact lenses float on this film layer and correct your vision in the same way as eyeglasses — by altering rays of light and diverting the focus to your retina. Contact lenses are essentially small prescription lenses you wear on your eye that are custom-created to suit your individual prescription and enhance your vision without traditional glasses.

Contact lenses are available as clear lenses or in different colors that can also be used as a fun fashion statement.

What are the types of contact lenses?

The main types of contact lenses are extended wear and daily wear. Daily wear lenses should be removed each night, while extended wear lenses can be worn for up to seven days. Some extended wear brands can be worn for up to a month. Gas-permeable contact lenses can last up to a year with appropriate care.

ReVision Optix provides a range of contact lenses.

Multifocal lenses

Multifocal lenses improve your vision for looking at things both far away and close up.

Toric lenses

Toric lenses are specialized lenses for astigmatism, an eye condition that involves an irregularly shaped eye.

How do I care for my contact lenses?

Your optometrist instructs you on to best care for your contact lenses. Conventional soft lenses usually involve more work, while disposable daily contact lenses require the least care.

Remember to clean and wash your hands with mild, unscented soap and rinse them thoroughly before handling your contacts. Try to avoid any irritants and tiny fibers from getting accidentally caught between your eye and your contact lens.

Dry your hands using a clean, lint-free towel, and make sure you only apply makeup once your contacts are comfortably in place. Some contacts can require a special cleaning solution.

What are the benefits of contact lenses?

Contacts allow you to better take part in activities and sports without being concerned about your glasses getting in the way or falling off.

Contacts sit comfortably and directly on your eye and leave your peripheral vision completely unobstructed. Contact lenses are an excellent choice if you don’t like to wear glasses all the time. Different color contacts can be a fun cosmetic change.
