Contact Lenses

Valley Vision Center offers many options for contact lenses.

Contact lenses are a great option for almost anyone.

Do you need vision correction but don’t want to wear eyeglasses full time? There are a number of reasons why you might prefer contact lenses to standard eyewear:

  • a glasses-free look,
  • hassle-free vision correction,
  • wearing non-prescription sun wear and goggles,
  • or the convenience of not having to worry about misplacing your glasses.

If you have a high prescription or astigmatism, contact lenses may provide more enhanced vision correction than glasses. Today, you can even replace your bifocal glasses with bifocal contact lenses.

Your eye care provider 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 of each.

We offer a wide selection at our Geneva office, and our experienced team of eye care professionals can help you find the right contacts for you.

What are my options?

There are many contact lens options available. Your eye care provider will take your lifestyle and vision correction needs into consideration when helping you select the right lenses for your eyes.

Here are some of the most common contact lens types:

  • Soft contact lenses – 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. Soft lenses are appropriate to correct near and farsightedness and astigmatism.
  • 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.
  • Multifocal Lenses – In both soft and GP designs, multifocal lenses offer patients both distance and near vision correction just like a pair of bifocal glasses.
  • Colored contact lenses – These are worn to enhance or completely change the visual color of the iris. They are still prescription contact lenses, however, and need to be treated with the same care you would give to regular lenses. Many — but not all — brands of contact lens companies offer colored lens options.
  • Silicone Hydrogels – Silicone hydrogels are soft contact lenses that have high oxygen permeability and are comparable to GP lenses.
