Contact lenses are an excellent option for people who need vision correction but are not comfortable with the idea of wearing eyeglasses all the time.
Contact lenses are thin, vision corrective disks that clings over your cornea. Over the past decade, advances in technology have made different types of contact lenses available for just about anybody who needs them.

InSight Vision Center offers a wide variety of contact lens options that accommodate your unique needs and also your lifestyle.
Selecting the Right Contact Lens for Your Eyes
At InSight Vision Center, Fresno, CA, our eye experts take the following factors into consideration to help select the right eye lens for you:
1. Your Contact Lens Prescription
Finding the contact lens that accurately corrects your vision is the first step. Your contact lens prescription has to be accurate, for it to actually correct your vision.
Your eyes keep on changing as you age. Therefore, your contact lenses prescription stays valid for just one year. That’s the reason why you are expected to evaluate your eye health annually to check the accuracy of your contact lens prescription.
If your prescription has expired, you may need to take an eye exam. Our ophthalmologists can perform an eye exam to review the accuracy of your prescription. As a courtesy, we can dispense trials until your next appointment.
2. Your Contact Lens Fit
The contact lens must fit your eyes perfectly. At InSight Vision Center, we understand the repercussions of wearing poorly fit lens – discomfort, swelling, inflammation, abrasion and even permanent eye tissue damage.
Therefore, we offer various contact lens with varying curvature and diameter combinations to accommodate the wide variety in eye shapes.
3. Your Eye Condition
Pertinent eye diseases may affect your choice of the contact lens. For instance, if you have dry eyes, our fitting specialist may choose a contact lens that is designed to address this condition.
4. Your Contact Lens Wearing Time
It was earlier considered a routine to remove the contact lens and clean them every night. However, with advances in technology, newer lens materials have been added. People today can wear contact lenses for extended periods of time. Extended wear contact lenses can be worn for 7 to 30 days at a stretch.
However, our eye experts will determine your overall eye health and your vision needs to assess whether you are a candidate for daily wear contact lenses, extended wear lenses, or continuous wear contacts.
Which contact lens is right for you?
Finding the perfect eye lens for your eyes may take more than one try. Different people react to lens materials and cleaning solution differently.
Also, the correct power, curvature and the diameter of your lens can only be finalized after you have worn the eye lens successfully.

How long should I wear my contact lenses?
It depends on what type of contact lenses you wear. The two most common types of contact lens are monthly lens (taken out each night) and daily lens (inserted in the morning and disposed at the end of the day). However, there is yet another addition – extended wear lenses that can be worn for 7 to 30 days without removal.
Depending on your visual needs and overall eye health, your eye doctor may be able to decide which type of lens is best for you.
