Countless times our patients have expressed how life changing it is to be able to wear contacts! After switching from glasses to contact lenses, they experience greater visual sharpness, improved peripheral vision, and better comfort. In order to maintain long-term healthy contact wear, there is one commonly overlooked tool that all contact lens wearers need — glasses! While contact lenses are now made from very comfortable and safe materials and are available in options that fit almost any lifestyle, every eye benefits from rest. Just as our bodies need rest to heal and recuperate, our eyes do as well. A contact lens is a foreign object in your eye that is designed to give you good vision.
