There are times when a different pair of glasses and contact lenses are an advantage – specific-purpose frames and lenses can give you the best visual performance and protection, whatever your day demands.
Computer glasses are designed to give you optimal close-up and intermediate vision as well as reduce digital eye strain, neck and shoulder discomfort and blue light emittance.
You need the best vision possible to add to your road safety – glasses with progressive lenses for a smooth transition between distance (keeping an eye on that car in front) to the speedo on the dashboard are a great idea. Coatings added to the lenses can minimise glare and light distortion from headlights when driving at night.
Glasses can get in the way sometimes – almost everyone who wears glasses can enjoy the convenience of contact lenses.
Different types of contact lenses
With the latest advance in contact lens material and design, there is a large range of contact lenses for different wear schedules, prescriptions and preferences.
Most contact lenses are removed and cleaned nightly, ready for insertion the next day.
Now there’s the option of daily lenses – you wear once and then thrown away. There’s also extended wear lenses that can be slept in!
Single day use lenses are worn through the day and discarded at night. A convenient and flexible solution. A new pair every day also decreases the build up of deposits and reduces the chance of bacteria entering the eye.
Daily wear contact lenses (fortnightly & monthly options) are worn through the day and removed at night for cleaning. These lenses are replaced at either fortnightly or monthly intervals.
Extended wear contact lenses provide the freedom and flexibility of not always having to remove your lenses. They can be slept in on occasion or, depending on the advice of your optometrist, can be worn continuously for up to 29 nights.
