Contact lenses have been available for a while now, but it has not been until recently that the manufacturers of contact lenses have been able to really specialize them beyond making them in different prescriptions. Today, there are lots of choices in contact lenses, making it difficult to pick the exact right ones for you. We at Legacy Eye Care at 4 convenient locations in Petersburg, Chester, South Hill, and Colonial Heights, know a lot about choosing the right contact lenses.
Narrow down your choices by following these steps:
1. Determine what's available in your prescription. Not all contact lenses brands and styles are available for every prescription. An optometrist on our team can usually direct you to the right set of lenses available for you after your eye exam.
2. Think about your schedule. Do you like to have a fresh set of contact lenses every day, or would you rather not have the hassle of needing to pack boxes of lenses every time you travel? If you're choosing lenses for a teenager, are they ready to keep the same pair of lenses clean for a few months or weeks, or does it make sense to give them a new set every morning? Your personal schedule and eye care preferences will have a lot of sway when you make your decision.
3. Don't be afraid to ask about price. Just like everything else you've ever bought, manufacturers have sales on contact lenses all the time. Our office also gets special deals and coupons from the companies that want to sell you lenses. Ask your eye doctor or contact lens specialist about coupons and rebates, and don't be afraid to switch brands if you can save money.
