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 are capable of treating any number of conditions—anything from nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. All it takes is the right fit and type. And at McDonald Optical, finding the right fit and type for you is our specialty.
What Types of Contacts are there?
In terms of treatment categories, there are literally dozens of different contact lens forms made to help with a multitude of eye conditions. 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.
