• a glasses-free look
• hassle-free vision correction
• wearing non-prescription sunwear and goggles and the convenience of never having to worry about misplacing your glasses
• If you have a high prescription or astigmatism, contact lenses may provide improved vision
• You can even replace your bifocal glasses with bifocal contact lenses.
Your doctor will recommend the best contact lenses for your eyes based on a complete eye examination and a review of your visual needs both at work and play. Success with contact lenses depends upon a certain amount of motivation and a commitment on your part. You must learn to take proper care of both the lenses and your eyes.
