What Type Of Lens Should I Be Wearing?

As you may, or may not, be aware, there are certain types of lenses that fix certain eye problems.

Therefore, you will need to purchase a certain type of lens to fix your eye sight.

If you suffer from an astigmatism, where by your eyes need help with focusing horizontally rather than vertically, then you will need to purchase toric contact lenses.

If you need to correct your vision for both reading, and viewing an object in the distance, then you will need to purchase varifocal or bifocal contact lenses.

These lenses contain both your prescription for your short and long sight, giving you overall vision clarity.

Also, there are different types of lenses for different types of people and for how you intend to use the lens.

For example, if you are going to use the lens, and then dispose of it after a days use, for example if you are wearing a novelty lens for a party, then you will benefit from purchasing daily disposable lenses, however, if you intend on using lenses every day, then daily lenses, where you store and reuse after one day, will be better for you.

Myths, demythed

There are certain myths about contact lenses which stop many people from buying them.

However; most, if not all, of these contact lens myths tend to be completely untrue and in fact, a myth.

A common myth that puts people off wearing contact lenses is that they are uncomfortable to wear.

This myth is somewhat true as lenses can be uncomfortable to wear for the first couple of days of use. This is just like a pair of shoes however, a new pair of shoes are uncomfortable when you first wear them, then you get used to wearing them and they are comfortable.

This is much like contact lenses, as you are not used to having anything touch your eye, it may be uncomfortable to wear, but after a few days of use, it is almost second nature and feels like a normal part of your eye.

Another myth is that contact lenses might get trapped behind your eye. This is completely, 100% untrue, as it is impossible for your lens to do so.

Your eye has a membrane called the conjunctiva which covers your eye from the top eye lid to the bottom, meaning it is impossbile for your lens to even get behind your eye, never mind get stuck there.

How can I get the best price for my lens?

Much like any product you buy, it is best that you shop around to find the best price as different shops and retailers order to sell products at slight variations in price.

For example one shop may sell a certain brand of lens at a different price, or may even have a special promotional offer on.

Comparison sites allow you to shop around at convenience and find the best price or a particular lens.
