Contact lenses are a great way to correct vision and change the appearance of your eyes. Optometrists can prescribe contact lenses from Bausch and Lomb that will help you see better or look different depending on what lens type is right for you.
There are two main types: hard and soft contacts, which comes in daily disposable, monthly, bimonthly and yearly disposables.
- Daily wear contact lenses should be worn every day while sleeping or during waking hours so they don’t have time to dry out between uses.
- Monthly use means wearing them once per month instead of replacing weekly like with daily wear options (biweekly wears replace twice per month).
- Yearly use means wearing them once per year, like with bimonthly uses.
Which type is right for you?
It all depends on your eye shape and comfort level.
- Round or near-round eyes are the easiest to fit in soft lenses because they don’t have any intrusive features that interfere with lens adhesion around the cornea (edge of iris).
- Everyone can wear oval-shaped eyes but there’s a higher chance of slipping off without tight vision, so consider daily wear options instead.
Words Of Caution
If you experience discomfort while trying contacts out at an optometrist’s office, it may not be best suited for you due to dryness or discomfort. However, it might be too risky to wear if it’s not suited for your eye shape, size, and comfort level, so don’t force yourself!
