Associates in Family Eyecare in Loveland offers many options for contact lenses.
Do you want to ditch your glasses? Do you miss wearing sunglasses? Do you play sports or have a job or activity where glasses are inconvenient or impossible? Contact lenses are a great option! Schedule an appointment to discuss with one of our doctors to see what kind of contact lenses are right for you.
These lenses are the most common. They are comfortable to wear and must be replaced monthly, weekly or daily. Soft lenses are often recommended for sports because they fit closer to the eye and are more difficult to dislodge. With modern technologies, soft lenses are more comfortable than ever!
Gas-Permeable (GP) Lenses
Made of moderately flexible plastics, GP lenses offer sharp vision and correct most vision problems. They are more durable than soft contact lenses and can be easier to handle and care for but require a longer adaptation period and consistent wear to maintain adaptation.
In both soft and GP designs, multifocal lenses offer patients both distance and near vision correction just like a pair of bifocal glasses.
Color Contact Lenses
Enhance your eye color or even change it completely. Colored contact lenses are fun and come in a variety of colors for both light and dark eyes.
Silicone hydrogels are soft contact lenses that have high oxygen permeability and are comparable to GP lenses.
Regardless of the type of contact lenses you wear, an annual eye exam is recommended to ensure the continued good health of your eyes. Schedule an appointment for an assessment and advice at Associates in Family Eyecare in Loveland, and we will be in touch with you shortly.
