If you have discovered that your vision is less than perfect and requires correction, you may have a preference for contact lenses over eyeglasses. Since you need a prescription for contacts, you’ll need to come in for a contact lens exam with our optometrist in San Antonio, Dr. Palomino!
Before making a selection, it would be a good idea to become familiar with the different types of contact lenses that your San Antonio eye doctor currently provides.
Being an optometrist in San Antonio provides many rewards. Our eye care specialists at The Vision Place find it rewarding to help members of the community find the right type of contact lenses to meet their particular needs.
During your contact lens exam, you will learn about current options for your contacts. You must remove daily wear contact lenses every day, as their name suggests, and disinfect them before going to bed. You also have to replace them according to their manufacturer’s schedule, which can range from twice a month to once every 90 days.
Extended wear contact lenses can be worn while you sleep, which many of our patients find convenient. You need to take these types of lenses out at least once each week for disinfecting and cleaning.
For busy patients on the go, the most appropriate option could be disposable contact lenses. You toss them out each day. In exchange for the ease of use (no daily cleaning and disinfecting), you typically have to pay more for disposables.
If contacts are your preference, there’s no time like the present to be evaluated by eye care professionals to see if they’re right for you. To learn more about the benefits of wearing contact lenses or to set up an appointment with your preferred San Antonio optometrist, please contact the team at The Vision Place today.
