You might find yourself wanting special occasion contact lenses if you’re getting married, for example, or if you’re planning a holiday and you don’t want to wear your glasses all the time. Or maybe you’re an athlete competing in an event or you want to participate in water sports. Whatever the case may be, here at Gulf and Ranges Optometrists, we’ve got you covered.
It’s easy to order special occasion contact lenses, but we do suggest you get in contact with us at least 3 weeks before your event or planned travel. Have a chat with us about what it is you need your contact lenses for, and we can offer personalised advice about what options will suit you best.
There are lots of options –
For example, many people who are going on holidays don’t want to be bothered with carrying around contact lens cleaning solutions, so daily disposable lenses can work well in this situation.
For big events or holidays where you might need to have your contact lenses in for a long period of time – day and night – an extended wear lens might be best suited. Extended wear lenses allow more oxygen into the eye than regular contact lenses, meaning your eyes can breathe and keep healthy for longer while wearing contacts.
If you’re new to contact lenses altogether, we suggest visiting us as early as possible, as it’s important to keep in mind, it can take a few weeks to adjust to wearing contact lenses to begin with. So if you’re planning to wear contact lenses instead of your glasses for your wedding or a special event, it’s good to actually start wearing them at least a few weeks before so you can get used to them.
