Contact lenses vs. glasses – See the benefits of contacts
Contact lenses or eyeglasses? Which eyewear should you choose, and why? When deciding whether contacts are right for you, it’s important to make an educated decision. Our specialists for contact lenses in Plainview want you to have a crystal-clear view of the advantages of contact lenses:
After we fit you with the perfect contact lenses in Plainview, you’ll insert them into your eyes and continue through your day without feeling that they are there. Thin and weightless, contact lenses stay comfortably snug on your eyeball and move with your eyes. Generally, people forget that they are even wearing contacts, which is not an experience shared by people who wear glasses.
Full field of vision
Glasses are great for giving you a clear view of what’s straight ahead of you. But the frames will often block your peripheral vision. Contacts conform to the curvature of your eye, so you can see straight, up and down, and right and left – without turning your head. This is particularly helpful when playing sports and driving.
Contact lenses are convenient
No matter where you wear your contact lenses in Long Island (and the rest of the world!), you’ll enjoy sharp, unobstructed vision. Your eyewear won’t slip down your nose, get fogged up, collect raindrops, or get in the way of anything you do.
Also, proper maintenance of your contact lenses takes only a few minutes each day. And if you wear daily disposable daily contact lenses, the convenience will go up a notch – because you can just discard your contacts at the end of each day, instead of disinfecting and storing them.
A good match for most prescriptions, and for all fashion
If you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have presbyopia – we have contact lenses in Plainview to support your vision requirements. New technologies and materials have led to a wide variety of contact lenses to suit almost every vision condition, including hard-to-fit patients. Astigmatism? Not a problem. We successfully fit many patients with astigmatism with toric contact lenses in our Long Island office.
In addition, no matter how high your vision prescription is, your contact lenses will stay just as thin – in contrast to the unsightly, thick lenses of eyeglasses. It also bears mentioning that your contacts will never clash with your clothes.
Contacts are a confidence booster
A lot of jabs and jokes about people in eyeglasses are out there. As a result, some people who wear glasses feel self-conscious about their appearance, which lowers their self-esteem and confidence. Yet contact lenses are almost invisible, which eliminates any discomfort that you may feel about needing to wear vision correction in public. Looking for another upgrade to your appearance?

You can wear your contacts only at night
Ortho-k lenses are rigid gas permeable contacts that reshape your cornea gently as you sleep. You insert these specialized contacts before bedtime and remove them in the morning. Throughout the day, your vision will be crisp and clear – with no daytime eyewear. If you are nearsighted and want to find out if you’re a good candidate for ortho-k contact lenses in Plainview, book an eye exam with our experienced optometrist.
