Our contact lenses include soft and rigid gas permeable types and our eye shop carries a wide range of different types of vision correction devices such as frames, in various budget ranges and price points. We believe all patients should have access to eye health Napa CA exams and eyeglasses.
Contact lenses are the best way to correct vision without the need for eyeglasses. Hard contact lenses are not as comfortable as soft lenses, however, they provide a sharper lens and offer better vision correction. Also known as rigid or gas permeable lenses, contacts work great for those suffering from nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. Soft lenses are more commonly prescribed due to their comfort levels, and are more popular with patients. They can also be worn by those with astigmatism or who want to wear their lenses overnight. Soft contacts can be worn for a few days, overnight or for extended periods of time. Because your eye health Napa CA is important, we do not recommend wearing contact lenses for longer than their specified allotment of time to help cut down on bacteria.
Extended wear soft contacts can be worn overnight, while soft lenses also come in disposable formats, so wearers can wear them for a day before discarding them.
