Contact Lenses Oakville
Contacts vs glasses. It’s an argument as heated as cats vs. dogs, Beatles vs. Stones and crunchy peanut butter vs. smooth peanut butter. Some wearers will opt for a combination of the two, whilst others have a solid preference for one and stick to it. However, misconceptions about contact lenses, even today, can sometimes prevent people from giving them a try. The most important thing you should know is that contact lenses are very safe to wear, with any potential issues easily avoidable with proper care and close attention to hygiene. In this article by Invision Optical, we will take a closer look at contact lenses in the Oakville area, and when you can sub them in for normal glasses.
They’re great for active people
For keen athletes and active individuals, contact lenses offer the most efficient solution for eyewear. They don’t move around when your head or eyes move, meaning you won’t have to worry about them falling out and potentially breaking. Contact lenses rarely escape from the eye socket and on the incredibly rare occasion when they do (most commonly if a wearer rubs their eyes too hard), they’re very difficult to break. Less obstructive than glasses, contacts also won’t interfere with safety gear such as helmets, caps and goggles.
Contacts sit comfortably on the curvature of the eye, giving you a wider field of view than glasses lenses, and excellent focus. Your lenses won’t be affected by more adverse weather conditions such as fog and rain, while they also won’t steam up in hotter conditions. Reflections and distortions that can arise with glasses will become a thing of the past, and you won’t have to worry about scratches to the lens that would otherwise have you forking out for a new pair of spectacles.
You can get creative
Want to change your eye colour? Contact lenses come in an array of shades that allow you to temporarily and safely change the colour of your eyes. Whether you want a more natural and subtle change, or to stand out from the crowd, we offer a fantastic range of coloured contact lenses.
You don’t have to compromise on style
Glasses can certainly complement your look, but they can also get in the way, particularly if you wear eye makeup. Many people who wear glasses have to opt for light reactive lenses to protect their eyes from UV rays. As well as being expensive, they don’t come in the versatile and fashionable range that sunglasses do.
While we hope we’ve convinced you to take a look at contact lenses in the Oakville area as an alternative to glasses, the best way of knowing if they’re right for you is to try them out for yourself. We highly recommend speaking to our opticians before you go lens shopping to find out which lenses are suited to your eyes.
