Q: WHAT IS THE LATEST IN CONTACT LENS TECHNOLOGY?
A: Many people are walking around wearing contact lenses made of old, outdated materials. Even when patients come in and say they have no problems at all with their current contacts, the doctors at Eye Care Associates ask them to rate their comfort level from 0-10. And when people say that they are at a 7 or 8 – we know that there is a good chance that they could benefit greatly from the latest innovations in contact lenses. Our providers are able to choose the best contact lens for each patient’s unique requirements.
Silicone Hydrogel daily disposable lenses have been available for over four years but many patients still don’t know about them. Many of our patients sit in front of a computer all day in a dry office. These very comfortable contact lenses let all the oxygen through which keeps the cornea healthy. Silicone hydrogel lenses have truly been a major advance in the industry. They are also available as multifocals which is a great benefit to many patients.
Our contact lens inventory includes bifocals, silicone hydrogel, contacts for astigmatism and a wide variety of daily disposables.
