Contact Lenses Q & A

  

How do contact lenses work?

 
Blurred vision occurs when the shape of your eye prevents light from hitting your retina correctly. Your contact lenses work by refracting and focusing the light onto your retina. 

Contact lenses are small prescription lenses that you wear on your eye. They are custom made to match your individual prescription and enhance your vision. Contact lenses are available in different colors or as clear lenses. 

What types of contact lenses are there?

 
There are two main types of contact lenses: extended wear and daily wear. Daily wear lenses must be removed every night. You can wear your extended lenses for up to seven days, and some brands can be worn for up to a month. With appropriate care, gas permeable contact lenses can last up to a year. 

Pack Optical provides soft lenses, gas-permeable lenses, multifocal lenses, color contact lenses, silicone hydrogels, and more. To find out more about glasses and contact lenses, book an appointment online or over the phone with Pack Optical today.
