Today, more than 30 million people in the United States alone wear contact lenses in order to see clearly. Contact Lenses offer patients the benefit of clear vision without the restrictions and in some cases, cosmetic limitations that eyeglasses often create.
Contact Lenses are a very popular method of correcting common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, as well as presbyopia. They are also a useful therapeutic treatment for certain eye diseases where an irregular corneal shape may blur vision such as the case in Keratoconus or corneal scarring. At The Eye Center in Denver, our knowledgeable and experienced Optometrists work closely with our eye physicians and surgeons to be sure that we can offer the best possible lens materials and fitting techniques to allow patients to have a safe and comfortable contact lens wearing experience.
Whether you need Soft Contact Lenses, Rigid Gas Permeable Contact Lenses, Contact Lenses for Astigmatism, Extended Wear Contact Lenses, Disposable or Planned Replacement Contact Lenses, or Specialty Contact Lenses that can change the color of your eye, we are pleased to offer expert consultation.
Patients who lead an active lifestyle and participate in any type of sport or athletic activity such as biking, running, playing tennis or golf, skiing, sailing or really any physical activity, find that wearing contact lenses and being free of eyeglasses for these activities helps to make these activities even more enjoyable.
Patients who have higher prescriptions often do not like the optical distortions and reflections caused by eyeglasses and the appearance of their eyes and facial features behind thicker eyeglass lenses. This, in addition to the limited peripheral vision provided by eyeglasses, motivates a great number of people to seek contact lens correction. Some patients just prefer to have a more natural appearance and feel that no matter how attractive an eyeglass frame they select, they just look better without wearing glasses.
The Eye Center Optometrists are happy to help you with a thorough eye examination, contact lens evaluation and contact lens fitting in order to find out if you are a good candidate for contact lenses and what lens types are right for you.
