Contact Lenses Q & A

Why should I use contact lenses over normal glasses?

Contact lenses offer the freedom of flexibility that glasses simply can’t match. Contact lenses fit comfortably inside your eye socket and there is no need to worry about losing or breaking them once they’re in. Contact lenses are versatile without being an obstruction. Here at Eye Care One we offer all forms of contacts from soft, rigid, disposable, and specialty lenses made for those of you that may be suffering from eye disease.

Which contact lenses are right for me?

In order to decide which contacts are right for you, doctors must first perform a thorough eye examination that measures the capacity of your vision. Only after an examination, a doctor at Eye Care One prescribes lenses that are right for you. Contact varieties usually fall under soft lenses and rigid, gas-permeable lenses, also known as hard lenses. Soft lenses are more comfortable and are easier to adjust, and hard lenses take have a longer adjustment period, but provide better clarity. If you are suffering from an eye condition or another complication, a proper examination, care, and a contact lens prescription will not only improve your vision but your quality of life.

What if I have an astigmatism?  

If you have an astigmatism, you can still enjoy the benefits of contact lenses. Eye Care One offers toric contacts that are made with an astigmatism in mind. These contacts not only fit comfortably but provide excellent vision no matter how bad the astigmatism. Toric lenses are shaped differently from standard lenses, creating a dynamic range of vision shifting from vertical to horizontal orientations. Toric lenses are available in both soft and hard versions for your convenience.

What contact lenses are available for eye conditions like keratoconus?

The eyecare professionals at Eye Care One offer contact lenses to fit a wide variety of conditions. If you suffer from an eye condition, such as keratoconus, the skilled doctors may have a solution for you.


Keratoconus, a condition where the clear tissue of the eye bulges outward, may rapidly affect your quality of vision. Eye Care One can provide you lenses at every step of the disease’s progression: soft lenses for early stages and rigid, gas-permeable lenses if your vision becomes worse. No matter the disease or condition, Eye Care One is ready to help you see the world with a crisp and clear view. Contact the office today for an appointment.

Eye Care One specializes in contact lens fittings for patients with keratoconus and injured corneas.
