There Are Many Types Of Contacts

If you have gone to your eye exam and learned you need corrective lenses, you may choose to go with contact lenses. If you do, then you should learn about some of the different types you can wear. There are a lot more than you may have imagined and you can find out about some of them in this article.

Bifocal lenses

If you need bifocals you may think that this means you have no choice and will need to go with bifocal glasses. However, you can actually order bifocal contacts. You will need to get used to them and should avoid driving with them until you are able to see out of them correctly. Getting used to them won't take long as long as you wear them consistently for the first few days.

Colored contact lenses

You can get contact lenses that change the color of your eyes. The color you go with can help to make your eyes a lighter or darker shade, or completely change the way they look. With contacts, it is possible to go from one color to a completely different one. Also, if you are looking for a way to make your eyes look not human, then you can get contacts that make it look like you have cat-shaped pupils, vampire eyes and more.

Daily disposable contacts

If you are a person who doesn't like the idea of needing to care for your contacts on a daily basis, then you may want to go with daily disposable lenses. These are ones you can throw out after you wear them. This removes the need for you to clean and store them at the end of each day and is a good option for someone with a very hectic lifestyle.

Night-time wear contacts

If you want to wear contacts you don't have to remove before you go to bed, then there are night-time wear contacts. They are designed so you can sleep with them in. It's still a good idea to take these lenses out and clean them at some point each day to give your eyes access to more oxygen and so you can remove bacteria off the lenses to decrease the chances of an eye infection.   

Now that you have more information on some of the contacts you can choose from, you may have an easier time ordering ones that will work the best for your lifestyle. For more information, contact a company like The Eye Depot.
