See better with contact lenses

  1. Tired of wearing glasses every day? Then contact lenses can offer a solution. But not everyone can tolerate contact lenses. And sometimes the deviation of the eye is such that a custom lens is not possible. So get good advice from a specialized optician.

  1. Most people can wear contact lenses without any problems and young people especially are fans of the small lenses that leave your appearance untouched.

Advantages of contact lenses

  1. In fact, vanity is the number one reason for opting for contact lenses for female lens wearers and male lens wearers prefer contact lenses in surveys, because it is safe during exercise. Contact lenses have even more advantages over glasses: With a little routine, the lenses are easy to place in the eye and when the fit is optimal (i.e. when the contact lens is nicely on the eye) you will soon forget that you are wearing lenses. You can do whatever you want with contact lenses. Even swimming is possible. You don't have to fear your opponents in contact sports (think cracks in the glasses or shattered frames). A contact lens does not fog up. Sunglasses do not have to be made with prescription when you wear lenses. Contact lenses are not sensitive to fashion trends, but glasses are. The main advantage is the wide field of view and natural vision that a contact lens provides. Unlike glasses, there is no distortion at the edges and no reduction (with negative lenses) or enlargement (with positive lenses).

Soft lenses versus hard lenses

  1. The vast majority of lens wearers choose soft lenses (64 percent) because of the pleasant fit and easy conditions of use. Soft lenses are more flexible than hard lenses (hence the pleasant fit, because the lens molds to the eyeball). This can cause some problems with applying the lens to the eye at first. But practice makes perfect. The use of soft lenses must be built up in the beginning, to allow the eye to get used to. The insertion of hard lenses is admittedly easy. But hard lenses require a longer adjustment period than soft lenses. Slowly increase the number of wearing hours. Your eyes will water at first and you can clearly feel the lenses. When it comes to price considerations, hard lenses are cheaper than soft lenses, because hard lenses last an average of two to three years. Soft lens wearers usually opt for daily, monthly or six-monthly lenses, because soft lenses get dirty more quickly. In addition, soft lenses should always be kept in liquid to prevent them from drying out.

Night lenses

  1. You can also opt for night lenses. As the name suggests, you do indeed wear these lenses at night. In the morning you take off your lenses and you can see well all day long. Good vision all day is relative, however, because the effect lasts an average of 6-8 hours. Night lenses are only suitable for people with a slight minus deviation (that is, you have trouble seeing far, but to a limited extent) or people with a cylindrical deviation. The optician can tell you whether night lenses are suitable for you. Be well informed about the possible side effects. Night lenses can lead to a lack of oxygen in the eye and especially the cornea. This normally happens while you are asleep, but night lenses can worsen this, causing inflammation or damage to the cornea. However, this does not happen quickly. In any case, you run a little more risk with regard to inflammation with all lenses than if you wear glasses.

Color lenses

  1. With colored lenses you can change the color of your eyes. Prescription color lenses are also available. But only use them for specific occasions! Read the instructions carefully anyway. Color lenses contain different materials and substances than standard lenses, so you may not be able to handle them.
