LaCroix Eye Care offers many options for contact lenses.
Contact Lenses are a popular option for vision correction today. Soft lenses are more comfortable to wear today than in years past, especially with the introduction of new materials like silicone hydrogels, which allow more oxygen to get to the eye. Contact lenses can provide vision correction for most prescriptions, including astigmatism.
This video demonstrates how to properly insert contact lenses.
Dr. Ann LaCroix Fredal can recommend the best contact lenses for you based on a complete eye examination and a review of your visual needs both at work and play. Since most people can wear more than one type of lens, it’s important to know what the choices are and the advantages and disadvantages to each.
These lenses are comfortable to wear and must be replaced monthly, weekly or daily depending on the type you choose. Soft lenses are often recommended for sports because they fit closer to the eye and are more difficult to dislodge. They can provide correction for most prescriptions including astigmatism. Today, with the introduction of newer materials like silicone hydrogels, which allow more oxygen to the eye, patients find it easier than ever to wear soft lenses comfortably.
Gas-Permeable (GP) Lenses
Made of moderately flexible plastics, GP lenses offer sharp vision and correct most vision problems. They are more durable than soft contact lenses and can be easier to handle and care for but require a longer adaptation period and consistent wear to maintain adaptation.
In both soft and GP designs, multifocal lenses offer patients both distance and near vision correction just like a pair of bifocal glasses.
Color Contact Lenses
Enhance your eye color or even change it completely. Colored contact lenses are fun and come in a variety of colors for both light and dark eyes.
Silicone hydrogels are soft contact lenses that have high oxygen permeability and are comparable to GP lenses.
Dailies Total 1®
The Dailies Total 1® contact lenses are redefining contact lens comfort without compromise. This breakthrough technology allows these lenses to be highly breathable and offers outstanding lubricity.
Crizal Lenses (by Essilor)
Ultra-violet (UV) light can cause irreversible damage to your eyes, including cataracts; that’s why protecting your eyes against UV light is important. And while a lot of lenses block the transmission of UV light through the lens, Crizal lenses are designed to significantly reduce the reflection of UV light as well. And because most UV damage is caused by the light bouncing off of the side or back of your lenses and into your eye, Crizal lenses are a great option to consider.
Regardless of the type of contact lenses you wear, an annual eye exam is recommended to ensure the continued good health of your eyes. Schedule an appointment for an assessment and advice at LaCroix Eye Care in Mt. Clemens, and we will be in touch with you shortly.
