When it comes to your eyes, you have to go with what you prefer, what feels right, and what matches up with your lifestyle. If you have impaired vision and need a prescription, it can be confusing with so many options out there. Some people prefer eyeglasses, and others contact lenses. There are pros and cons to each, but the good news is our Bronx opticians at Urban Eyes will have you seeing clearly and feeling great by the end of your visit.
Eyeglasses: they’re classic, efficient, effective, and widely popular. Many people couldn’t imagine parting with their eyeglasses, and we understand why. Eyeglasses can fix a wide variety of vision problems, from nearsightedness, to farsightedness, to astigmatism, and just about everything in between. They can be personalized to your prescription, and there’s a slew of options when it comes to frames and lenses. Depending on your lifestyle, you might opt for fashionable frames, sturdy frames, or barely-there frames. Eyeglasses are also easy. However, some people find them to have too many downsides. They can impair your peripheral vision, distract from your facial features, and are a nuisance during sports and activities. Our Bronx opticians are happy to work with you to try on all different kinds of frames to determine if they are for you.
For people who want a natural look, sans glasses, there are contact lenses. They come in a wide variety of types, and they fix your vision flawlessly. Many patients find contact lenses to provide a natural feeling vision, since they are worn right on the eye. Your entire field of vision is in focus, with nothing blocking the corners of your eyes. Also, since contacts come in so many different options – disposables, daily wear, extended wear, rigid lenses, soft lenses, colored contacts, and more – you are sure to find a pair that you love. However, some people find it too frustrating to learn to insert a small, easily lost, contact into their eye. They worry about losing them, and constantly replacing contact lenses can grow to be expensive.
Not all types of eyeglasses or contact lenses are for everyone, and our Bronx opticians at Urban Eyes understand that. Our staff are trained and experienced in our entire, wide selection of glasses and lenses. When you visit us at Urban Eye we are dedicated to helping you find your best choice of eyeglasses or contact lenses, so you can leave happy and seeing clearly.
