Contact lenses are a wonderful alternative to wearing prescription eyeglasses because they do not obstruct your vision in any way, and they do not cover up your face in any way either. They are relatively easy to maintain and come in a variety of brands and options. There are two main types of contact lenses that we provide at EyeCare Associates of San Bernadino, and our Rialto eye doctor will help you pick the ones that are best for you. The main separation is between soft contact lenses and hard contact lenses, also known as gas permeable contact lenses. Most patients elect to use soft contact lenses because of their comfort and ease of wear.
At EyeCare Associates of San Bernadino, we have all types and brands of soft contact lenses. We have soft contact lenses that you can wear overnight, that are for daily wear, that are disposable, that are for extended wear, and even color changing soft contact lenses that those without a prescription can use as well. Hard contact lenses are different from soft contact lenses because they provide sharper vision, but are not as comfortable to wear. Hard contact lenses are typically only used for patients with severe or very advanced refractive errors that are not sufficiently accommodated by soft contact lenses. If you’re not sure which type of contact lens would be best for your eye care needs, simply stop in and speak with our Rialto eye doctor.
