Contact Lenses Q&A
Why should I consider contact lenses?
Contact lenses fit over and move along with your eye to improve your vision in all directions. The Bloomberg Eyecare doctors can fit you in a variety of contact lens types specific to your eye health needs and prescription.
A proper contact lens prescription requires exact fitting measurements and follow-ups to ensure eye health as the lens actually touches your cornea and eye tissue.
You might consider contact lenses if you require prescription glasses for vision correction but find them inconvenient, non-stylish, uncomfortable, or if you play sports or participate in other activities or working conditions where glasses are in the way.
If you have astigmatism or require bifocal lens correction, you may still be a candidate for contact lenses. Ask your Bloomberg Eyecare doctor for advice.
What type of contact lens is right for me?
At Bloomberg Eyecare, your doctor has access to virtually all types and brands of contact lenses and can recommend and help you choose what’s best for you.
Soft lenses are flexible, plastic lenses that correct for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia (multi-focal correction). They are available in a variety of types and brands including daily disposable, daily-wear, extended wear and planned replacement disposable contacts. You can also choose soft, tinted contact lenses to enhance or to change your eye color or to reduce glare. A contact lens technician will also assist you and train you in insertion, removal and cleaning of your lenses.
Your six-month or years supplies of contact lenses purchased through Bloomberg Eyecare are always shipped to you free of charge and any unused, packaged and current lenses can be returned for full credit if new prescriptions or different types of lenses are purchased later.
Rigid gas-permeable Lenses (RGP)
Our doctors offer RGP contact lenses, which are a flexible plastic and allow oxygen to pass through to keep your eyes healthy and comfortable. RGP lenses can correct a variety of vision problems, including astigmatism, and may be a better alternative to soft lenses if you have a high prescription.
Your doctor can determine which contact lens type best fits your needs after a comprehensive eye exam, contact lens fitting and follow-up exam. Together you will determine which type of lens is best for your condition, sight and use. A contact lens technician will also assist you and train you in insertion, removal and cleaning of your lenses.
How do I care for my contact lenses?
Bloomberg Eyecare doctors and contact lens technicians provide complete guidance for caring for your contact lenses. The optometrists can recommend the right products to safely clean and store your contact lenses for continued use.
To reduce your risk for eye infections or injuries, you should always wash your hands with soap and water before handling your contacts or touching your eyes.
Unless you have a special type of contact lenses, don’t sleep in your lenses. You should also be careful when showering or swimming with your contacts to prevent irritation or loss of your lenses.
Be sure to wear sunglasses when wearing contact lenses outdoors in sunlight or snow conditions to reduce your risk for eye damage from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays.
