What’s the deal with contact lenses?

In the United States, all contact lenses, even purely cosmetic ones, require an eye exam to determine an individual’s suitability for contact lenses. This typically includes a refraction to determine the power of the lens and an assessment of the health of the eye.

Prescriptions for contact lenses and glasses may be similar, but are not interchangeable.

What types of contact lenses does Optical World carry?

Daily Disposable

The healthiest way to use contact lenses is to wear for one day then remove and throw away prior to sleeping. There is no need to clean or store these lenses.

Weekly or Monthly Disposables

These lenses are taken out every night, properly cleaned and stored for re-use.

Fashion Color Lenses

Colored contacts blend naturally with any eye color to change or enhance your appearance, whether you need vision correction or it’s just for fun!

Contact Lenses for Astigmatism

When the eye is curved unevenly, it has problems focusing light and that means blurry vision, creating astigmatism. Contacts can offer freedom and flexibility from glasses, and Contact Lenses for Astigmatism can also solve nearsightedness and farsightedness.

Bifocal & Multifocal Lenses

These contacts contain multiple prescriptions all in one lens. There is typically a prescription for very close objects: one prescription for normal objects viewed at a distance, and then prescriptions for intermediate distances. This setup helps people with presbyopia correct age-related vision problems where the eye can no longer focus on objects up close.
