If wearing glasses has you frustrated then find out if contact lenses might actually be easier.

You hate having to wear glasses all day long. Sometimes it makes your eyes feel tired, especially if you spend a lot of your day staring at contact lensesa computer screen. Perhaps you’ve been thinking about getting contact lenses from one of our Lawrenceville, Plainsboro and Freehold, NJ ophthalmologists, but you’re not sure whether it’s the best option for you and your eyesight. Here are some things to consider before deciding whether contact lenses could be right for you.

Are there instances in your life that you wish you didn’t have to wear your glasses? Perhaps you would love to go swimming without stressing out about not being able to see the environment around you. Or maybe you would love to not have to wear glasses while playing sports. If this sounds like you then you may want to consider contact lenses, which make it easy to participate in sports without needing to worry about bulky glasses.

What kind of environment do you work in? While those who work inside or at their desk may benefit from wearing contact lenses, if your job requires you to be around a lot of chemicals, dust or other pollutants, then wearing contact lenses could actually be more irritating than comfortable. In this case, you will want to talk to our Lawrenceville, Plainsboro and Freehold eye doctor about whether contact lenses should be worn while at work.

Do you have any health issues? Are your eyes severely irritated? Do you suffer from ocular allergies? Do you have uncontrolled diabetes or other chronic health problems? If so, then these are issues that we need to discuss during your consultation to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for contact lenses.

Are you ready to get contact lenses? If so, then turn to Princeton Eye and Ear in Lawrenceville, Plainsboro and Freehold, NJ to find out which kind is right for you. We would be happy to schedule your contact lens consultation and fitting to see which one would give you the best vision possible.
