contacts are thin lenses placed directly onto the surface of the eyes. These are made from premium grade materials that are safe and comfortable for the eyes.
Contacts are alternative medical devices for eyeglasses. Most contact lenses are used to help improve vision problems. This includes myopia, hyperopia, and regular or irregular astigmatism. Some are used for therapeutic purposes while others are for aesthetic reasons.
People choose to wear contacts instead of eyeglasses for various reasons. Most individuals usecontacts because of comfort and convenience. Contact lenses do not collect moisture from rain, heat, or snow as compared to eyeglasses.
Others wear them due to cosmetic and aesthetic reasons. Contacts come in clear and coloredlenses. Colored lenses can be stylish and may transform one’s appearance.
Some also wear them because of functionality. Compared with spectacles, contacts provide better peripheral vision. Additionally, eyesight conditions such as aniseikonia and keratoconus are corrected optimally with contacts.
