Tips for Choosing Contact Lenses to Match Your Lifestyle

Contact lenses give you the freedom of good vision without the inconvenience of wearing glasses. Whether you enjoy playing sports or you find it uncomfortable to wear glasses all day long, you should consider the benefit of using contacts on a daily basis.

Talk to Your Eye Doctor

The first step to making the switch to use contact lenses is by talking to your eye doctor. A vision checkup and consultation will identify the prescription that you need to wear. You can also discuss any other eye conditions that might affect the way you wear the contact lenses.

Your eye doctor will make suggestions about the types of contact lenses that are available. Consider your lifestyle when choosing lenses that will work for you.

Contacts to Match Your Lifestyle

Here are a few lifestyle factors that you should consider when choosing contact lenses:

  • Time at the Computer: It has been found that blinking decreases by about 30% when a person is looking at a computer screen. If you spend your work day at the computer, then you might be experiencing dry eyes. Choose a high oxygen or high moisture contact lens to make it more comfortable to look at the computer.
  • Busy Lifestyle: Do you have a schedule that is booked from sun-up to sun-down? It can seem like a hassle to clean contact lenses or store them in a case each night. Consider the benefits of daily replacement lenses that are designed to be worn for one day. At the end of the day, you take the lenses out and throw them in the garbage. No more worrying about how long you’ve used a pair of contacts!
  • Sports and Physical Activity: If you love spending time on the field, then glasses aren’t conducive to your lifestyle. Contacts allow better peripheral vision compared to glasses. Consider a brand of contact lenses that offer UV protection to keep your eyes shielded in the sunlight.

    I didn’t realize that when you are looking at a computer screen you tend to blink 30 percent less than normal. I work on a computer or most of the day at my job. So, it seems that should have a contact that will stay moist longer. I wonder if that type of contact is hard to find.
