Your local Optometrist may not be able to provide contact lens exams, but you will find some of the larger Optometrist centers in Fort Myers do have the facilities for do a contact lens exam and for providing you with advice on contact lenses as well as a trial period so you can try out contact lenses and decide if you like them or not.

Why Choose Contact Lenses?

If you’ve worn glasses for many years, perhaps since childhood you’ve probably gotten used to wearing them, you will even forget you have them on at times, and be searching for them for a bit before you realize they’re actually already on your face.  Or perhaps you go to wipe your eye and end up wiping the glasses lens instead!  We’ve all done that.  So why would you want to have contact lenses?  You are happy with your glasses and you really don’t like the idea of sticking something in your eye every day.

Well, think about when wearing glasses becomes inconvenient for you.  Perhaps when you are outside and its raining or particularly cold, then you get in your car to drive and you have to take your glasses off and clean them or perhaps wait until they’ve demisted.  How about carrying out physical activity, perhaps going for a run, playing a team sport, these are times when glasses are a hinderance as they can easily fall off your face as you start to sweat and move, they can be a hazard because if they are hit by a ball or an opponent then they could injure you or them, and also they inhibit your field of vision.

On all of these occasions you want your perfect vision that you can usually have with your glasses but you don’t want the glasses because they get in the way of what you’re doing.  So these times are when contact lenses are much more suitable than glasses.  Contact lenses can be worn during sports and physical activities and also aren’t affected by rain, sweat or body heat.  You can put the lenses on in the morning and then forget about them until night time when you take them off before you go to bed.

Another reason for wearing contact lenses is that there are occasions when you don’t want to wear glasses for aesthetic reasons, like on a date, at a job interview, because you want to make the best impression possible.

People who try out contact lenses often wish they had discovered them earlier so they hadn’t had to wear glasses for so long.  So now is the time to give them a try and see if they’re right for you.
