Contact Lenses Are In The Fashion

By Adriana Noton

Spectacles are giving way to contact lenses to a greater degree than ever these days. This is due to many factors, one of the main ones being the improvement in lens technology. Undoubtedly, lenses are much better than the average spectacles in every respect. This applies whether in the area of comfort, fashion or cost effectiveness. There is often more variety and wider price band than conventional spectacles too.

There are basically two types of lenses; those designed for the medical field and those mainly for the world of fashion. These are segmented into colored lenses for the fashion market and medical types designed for mainly protection of the eyes. A further division of lens types result from the material used, the wear time, replacement time and the function.

The latter is where most of the focus is. Function is also sub-divided into areas of corrective, therapeutic and cosmetic. Correctives are generally used in the medical segment. Therapeutics is similar to them inasmuch as they also help eye protection. Corrective lenses are also used mainly in the fashion world.

When it comes to spectacles versus contact lenses it is no contest! The benefits are obvious, especially to females who are looking for fashion. Unlike most spectacles lenses provide comfort and enhance appearance and are virtually unnoticeable in use. Also, they are suitable for almost any age group. Despite that, the contact lens industry is still quite a new kid on the block, and is continuing to improve as well as expand.

The benefits of the contact lens over spectacles, especially for the fairer sex are fairly obvious and not surprisingly, are a main player in the fashion stakes. They provide comfort and appearance enhancement plus virtually anyone of any age can use them. Having said that, the contact lens industry is still relatively new and continues developing and improving technologically.

The soft contacts are the most popular since they are the most comfortable to wear. However, some contact lens wearers favor the more rigid gas permeable sort. It goes without saying incidentally, if you are looking at purchasing one of the cheaper brands that are becoming increasingly popular these days, to be sure to have your eyes tested by a qualified expert. Only optometrists or ophthalmologists should ever prescribe any kind of eye products, especially lenses.

This means lenses that have been correctly prescribed. You will avoid a visit to your doctor at your peril. It is a known fact certain people can have eye problems which would preclude them from ever wearing any type of contact lens.

The truth is most eye experts will dissuade customers from buying cheap fashion lenses, because of the risks mentioned. You can easily get recommended discounted contacts that are usually of higher quality than the cheaper ones. One other word of caution is to ensure that all contact lenses products are accompanied by clear instructions. To fail to do so could be problematical.
