Contact lens research in the past ten years has been incredible there really has been a revolution in the product market over the last decade. And this trend is set to continue with new designs and philosophies in the pipeline that can appear to be something out of a sci-fi novel. There is currently a lens under development that will electronically log the wearers blood glucose levels on a diurnal basis.
All this research has benefited us with a huge catalog of contact lens products in a very competitive market which can only be good for the consumer. Today's contact lens market has a contact lens suitable for everyone. There are lenses available for any eye with any glasses prescription. In fact there are certain people who can only see with contact lenses, where glasses are just simply not up to the job.
Several of our patients have told us that lenses can boost confidence and improve sport performance significantly. It is often noted that following a contact lens fitting a younger adult can become more confident and out-going at school having been able to cease the reliance on glasses.
With the advent of Ortho-keratology (overnight vision correction therapy), contact lenses really have been a savior for some. These lenses have been shown to slow and even halt the progression of shortsightedness in young adults.
Contact lenses really can be life changing and there is NOBODY who is ineligible for some form of lens wear, so ask at your next eye examination about your free contact lens trial appointment.
