Contact Lenses at Riverview Vision Center
Wearing contact lenses for vision correction offers many benefits, including a more natural appearance, wider visual access, not having to deal with eyeglass lenses fogging up, and more. Getting the right contact lenses for your eye health and visual needs is vital to your success in being able to comfortably wear them and enjoy clear, sharp vision every day.
Riverview Vision Center specializes in working with patients to fit them in the right contact lenses for their visual needs and eye health.
If you are interested in contact lenses, our doctors will perform a contact lens exam. During this exam, they will evaluate a range of metrics and eye health markers, including the size and shape of your cornea, taking in to consideration your corrective vision needs and the overall health of your eyes
We offer many options for contact lenses
These lenses are comfortable to wear and must be replaced monthly, weekly or daily depending on the type you choose. Soft lenses are often recommended for sports because they fit closer to the eye and are more difficult to dislodge. They can provide correction for most prescriptions including astigmatism. Today, with the introduction of newer materials like silicone hydrogels, which allow more oxygen to the eye, patients find it easier than ever to wear soft lenses comfortably.
Gas-Permeable (GP) Lenses
Made of moderately flexible plastics, GP lenses offer sharp vision and correct most vision problems. They are more durable than soft contact lenses and can be easier to handle and care for but require a longer adaptation period and consistent wear to maintain adaptation.
In both soft and GP designs, multifocal lenses offer patients both distance and near vision correction just like a pair of bifocal glasses.
Color Contact Lenses
Enhance your eye color or even change it completely. Colored contact lenses are fun and come in a variety of colors for both light and dark eyes.
Silicone hydrogels are soft contact lenses that have high oxygen permeability and are comparable to GP lenses.
