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 optometrists at Bloomberg Eyecare offer a variety of contact lens types specific to your eye health needs and prescription.

You may want to consider contact lenses if you require prescription glasses for clear vision but find them inconvenient. Contact lenses are also a great alternative to glasses if you play sports or participate in other activities where glasses get in the way.

If you have astigmatism or other vision issues, contact lenses can provide clearer, sharper vision than you may achieve with glasses.

What type of contact lenses’ is right for me?

At Bloomberg Eyecare, you have access to the latest brands of contact lenses. The optometrists fit both soft lenses and rigid gas-permeable lenses (RGP). 

Soft lenses

Soft lenses are flexible plastic that correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. They are available in a variety of types, including daily-wear, extended-wear, and planned-replacement disposable contact lenses.

Soft lenses are available in single prescription, bifocal, and multifocal lenses. You can also choose tinted lenses that reduce glare without altering your appearance.

Rigid gas-permeable (RGP)

The optometrists offer RGP contact lenses that are flexible plastic that allows oxygen to pass through to keep your eyes healthy. 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 Bloomberg Eyecare optometrist can determine which contact lens type best fits your needs after a comprehensive eye exam and visual acuity screening. They discuss your job and usual activities to help you find lenses that are convenient and comfortable.

How do I care for my contact lenses?

Bloomberg Eyecare provides 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 the loss of your lenses.

Be sure to wear sunglasses when wearing contact lenses outdoors to reduce your risk for eye damage from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays.
