At Aucello EyeCare Center we are contact lens professionals with years of experience helping our South Windsor and Newington, CT patients enjoy the seeing the world clearly without glasses. Whether you are currently wearing contacts or are interested in seeing if they are right for you, we can help.
Benefits of Contact Lenses
Contact lenses offer several benefits as an alternative to eyeglasses. One of the main ones is that since contacts sit directly on your eye, your view is unobstructed, especially your peripheral vision. There are no frames in between you and the world and you will see more clearly and naturally than with lenses that are sitting away from your eyes.
Contacts allow you to participate in sports and outdoor activities without fear of your eyeglasses being broken or lost. You know how annoying eyeglasses are to wear in the rain or snow. Contact lenses won’t fog up and blur your vision. Additionally, since no one can see that you have contacts, you have a more natural appearance.
Eye Exams for Contacts
Today’s contact lens features and styles allow many of our patients to wear contacts comfortably and safely to improve their vision. If you want to discover the beauty of contacts, just as with glasses you need to have an exam. However, unlike an exam for eyeglasses, our optometrists will use special instruments and vision tests. With these they can measure your cornea where the contact lens will sit and determine how much correction you will need to see clearly.
Once one of the Aucello EyeCare Center optometrists has determined that you are a good candidate for contacts, they will discuss your lens options. There is quite a range of lens option from soft contacts to rigid gas permeable lenses. There is a variety of wear options, from single use disposable contacts, to ones that can be left in for extended periods. We also offer specialty contact lenses such as:
These help our patients who haven’t been able to wear contacts because of an irregular cornea or other eye conditions. Scleral contacts are large-diameter gas permeable lenses designed to fit over the “white” of the eye (sclera). Learn more.
This specialty gas permeable contact lens is one that you wear overnight that gently reshapes your cornea so you can see more clearly the next day after you wake up and remove the lenses. Learn more.
