Contact Lenses

The first thing to know about contact lenses is that you'll need a different prescription from the one you have foryour prescription glasses. This is because contacts are positioned directly on your eye. Therefore, it's essential to visit an optician or eye doctor to get the correct prescription details before purchasing them. Have you already gone through these steps and are now wondering how to put in contact lenses? Read our guide and follow the 4 easy steps!

 

What are the 3 types of contact lenses?

There are three types of contacts you can choose from, depending on your needs.

1. Corrective contact lenses are designed to correct refractive errors such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Just like in prescription glasses, this is achieved by directly focusing light so it enters the eye with the proper power for clear vision. 

2. Multifocal contact lenses can be compared to spectacles with bifocals or progressive lenses. These are designed for viewing through the centre of the lens, but some designs enable viewing through the reading power, similar to bifocal glasses. 

3. Cosmetic contact lenses, like coloured contacts, can change the colour of the eye. These lenses may also correct refractive errors. 

 

Can you sleep with contacts on? 

The answer is no. Sleeping with contact lenses can cause significant eye damage and infection. Therefore, it's recommended to remove them at night. The only exception is if you are wearing special lenses that are designed for overnight wear. These specially designed lenses have a higher oxygen permeability and will not cause the same level of damage as standard ones. However, always follow instructions carefully to make sure the lenses don't cause any harm.

 

How much are contact lenses?

It depends! Prices of contact lenses depend on the type of lenses, your prescription and the brand you're prescribed. Different powers and materials also affect the cost, with higher prescriptions typically costing more. Are you not sure where to buy the best contact lenses online? At SmartBuyGlasses!
