4 Benefits of Contact Lenses

Book Appointment

Contact lenses are the most popular alternative to prescription eyeglasses in Brooklyn, NY. They can be customized to match the size, shape, and curvature of the patient’s eyes. Most people who wear contact lenses experience no discomfort, allowing them to do daily activities without hassle.

Benefits of Contact Lenses

Apart from correcting one’s vision, one of the most common reasons for wearing contact lenses is enhanced looks. Beyond cosmetic reasons, however, contact lenses provide plenty of advantages over other solutions. Here are four of their notable benefits:

1. Stability – Unlike eyeglasses, contact lenses in Brooklyn, NY, will stay in place and rarely fall out of place regardless of the extent of your movement.  Since they remain steadily in place, you can retain clear vision even if you are active. This makes them an ideal option when playing sports or other recreational activities.

2. Easy Lens Care – Contact lenses can adjust to external conditions, so rain and extreme heat won’t affect their usefulness. They won’t steam or sweat like glasses, requiring little maintenance to remain in good shape. If you want to eliminate the need for lens care products altogether, you can take advantage of daily disposable contact lenses.

3. Improved Vision – Since they sit directly on the eye, they offer a full, unobstructed field of vision, with lesser distortion compared with eyeglasses. Additionally, contact lenses allow you to view objects at their actual size and position.

4. Increased Self-Esteem – According to the Adolescent and Child Health Initiative to Encourage Vision Empowerment (ACHIEVE) study, contact lenses improve the self-esteem of both children and teens. Aside from their physical appearance, patients feel confident about their ability to play sports and academic performance.

To make the most of contact lenses, it’s important to practice healthy habits. It also pays to understand that all types of contact lenses are medical solutions that need the prescription of an experienced eye doctor in Park Slope.

Our experts at Park Slope Eye can help determine the right lenses for your needs. We can also educate you about the many other benefits of wearing prescription contact lenses. For more information, simply call us at (347) 380-7070 or complete our contact form. We’ll be ready to assist you.
