Thinking about wearing contact lenses in Boca Raton? You, like so many others who choose the versatility of contacts, have many options to help you choose the best fit for you. Contacts have come a long way since their inception to account for comfort and aesthetics. 

Think about how frequently you’ll be using them and what’s most important to you from these tips for choosing contact lenses in Boca Raton.

Daytime / Nighttime

Typically, disposable contact lenses should not be worn to bed. Even when you’re just laying down for a nap, it’s a good idea to remove them beforehand to protect your eyes from becoming damaged or irritated due to lack of oxygen. Now, there are specially made extended wear lenses that can be worn safely throughout the night. These lenses are made to allow in more oxygen, so your eyes don’t suffer when you forget to take out your contacts at night. Talk to your eye doctor about which option is best for you at your contact lens fitting.

Disposable / Reusable

When you’re considering contact lenses in Boca Raton, it’s important to first determine whether you will commit to proper contact lens storing hygiene. Reusable contact lenses are thicker and more durable than daily disposable lenses. They only need to be replaced once per month, or however frequently your eye doctor recommends. It’s extremely important to practice proper storage hygiene. If that’s not up your alley, daily disposable lenses may be a better option for you.

Multifocal / Spherical / Monovision / Toric

There are more decisions to make when selecting your contact lenses depending on whether you have special needs. Schedule an eye exam and lens fitting to learn more about contact lenses for astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness, and more.
