Finding What Fits you Best
The Eyecare Doctor Professionals Everyone Needs
Doctors Note: Stop in at McDonald Optical in Iowa City for a contact lens eye exam and a fitting from the broad selection at our eyeglasses store, and we’ll make sure to get you the modern care you deserve.
So if you’ve been looking for an eyecare solution that’s a little more modern than regular glasses—fun fact, eyeglasses have been around for almost 700 years, while contact lenses have been around for just over 60—we’ve got you covered.
What Vision Conditions Can Contacts Treat?
Depending on what condition you have, contacts may or may not be the right fit for you. That being said, contact lenses can treat any number of states—anything from nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia, and more. All it takes is the right fit and type. And at McDonald Optical, finding the right fit and style for you is our specialty.
What Types of Contacts are there?
In terms of treatment categories, there are dozens of different contact lens forms made to help with many eye conditions. Please consult your local optometrist and see what they think would work best for you.
Length of Wear
Contacts come in two major wear categories—daily wear lenses or overnight wear lenses. The former has to be changed out every day, and you’ll usually put them in right away in the morning and remove them before you go to bed at night. Overnight wear lenses can be kept in for up to thirty days continuously. The issue with these is that material can build up under the lens and cause serious eye infections.
