With contact lenses, you can feel free to do what you want!

Going out to the gym or joining friends for a volleyball game just got easier without you having to worry about your eyeglasses slipping out of place.

With the arrival of many new designs and materials of soft daily wear contact lenses, you can expect to find lenses with more comfort and longer lasting moisture.

Why Do I Need a Contact Lens Fitting? What is a Fitting Anyway?
Mind you, contact lenses are still medical devices that require an eye doctor’s prescription, since they do come in different sizes, curvature and lens edge designs.  Thus, because everyone can have a different eye shape, contact lenses need to be fitted by a licensed Optometrist or Optician – where they will look at whether the lenses are the correct power, size and shape for you, and whether you are wearing them healthily.

Moreover, your Optometrist or Optician can teach you the proper techniques to handle and clean your contact lenses, and risks to avoid so you can enjoy clear, comfortable contact lens wear.

Can I Buy My Contact Lenses Online?
Yes – with caution.  Be sure you are ordering from a reputable source that will verify your contact lens prescription.   Are they providing authentic product?  Also, have you done a proper contact lens fitting and do you go for your regular contact lens cornea health checks to ensure the lenses are healthy for your eyes?

Saving money is a virtue, and your eye health is priceless!  So take care of them no matter where you decide to make your purchase.  Sometimes, your eye doctor can also offer the convenience of ordering online.
