Contact lens in Union City

If you’re interest in getting contact lens in Union City, your first step is to see a professional eye doctor at an optical shop like Eyesite to find out if you’re a good candidate. Since contact lenses are worn on the cornea, you need to have good optical health in order to wear them. You’ll first need to get a comprehensive eye examination so your eye doctor can check to make sure that you don’t have any eye conditions and/or diseases. If your eye health is good, you’ll need to have a contact lens exam and fitting. This is done to ensure that you receive the right contacts. Your contacts must: provide good vision correction, be comfortable, they must properly fit on the cornea and match your lifestyle. You’ll need to consider your lifestyle and other factors that will determine which type of contact lenses may be the right fit for you.  Your first decision would be to select between hard and soft contact lenses. Hard contact lenses offer sharper vision than soft contacts, but soft contacts are much more comfortable. Next, based on lifestyle factors, you’ll need to decide whether you want daily wear, extended wear, disposable or color-changing contact lenses. Daily wear can be worn for up to 12 hours during the day. They must be taken out before sleeping and must be cleaned and disinfected after each use. Disposable contact lenses are great for those who don’t want to deal with cleaning them. Extended wear are more flexible since they can be worn day and night.
