Contact Lenses

It’s well-known that people with vision problems have two basic choices: eyeglasses or contact lenses. At Antelope Valley Eye Care, we offer both. However, we find that many of our patients who can benefit from contact lenses choose this option over glasses. Find out why contact lenses are a popular option for vision correction.

Benefits of Contact Lenses

For decades, contact lenses have offered millions of Americans an alternative to eyeglasses. These lenses can help correct a variety of common vision impairments such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism (blurred vision), for instance.

Contact lenses are less burdensome than eyeglasses in some ways. They move with the eyes and have a more natural look and feel, for instance. Many people prefer the appearance of contact lenses over glasses, and they report feeling more confident after switching to contact lenses.

Contact lenses are also more suitable to high-energy activities like sports and outdoor recreation, for example. This is because they are designed to stay in place while you move around unlike glasses, which can fall off and break during rigorous activity.

If you’ve decided that contact lenses are your preferred choice for vision correction, then you’ll be happy to learn that Antelope Valley Eye Care has a wide selection of contact lenses for you to choose from.
