Contact lenses

Contact lenses are a choice—a choice of discretion and transparency. But the contact lenses you choose should reflect your needs. Contact lenses can be a complementary solution or they can replace eyeglasses entirely. And, like eyeglasses, they provide excellent vision.

Contact lenses can have undesirable effects. We recommend you ask your optometrist if they’re right for you. If you have allergies, work in a dusty environment or suffer from diabetes, severe arthritis, hyperthyroidism or dry eyes, glasses are a better choice.

The advantages

  • Better vision correction : Sometimes eyeglass frames can be cumbersome and obstruct vision. Contact lenses provide great peripheral vision.
  • A question of aesthetics : Unlike glasses, contact lenses show off your eyes.
  • Comfort in certain environments : There is no fogginess formed in moist and hot environments, and no water splattering, which is convenient for sports and other activities.

The disadvantages

  • The need to adapt which depends on whether you’re using soft or hard lenses
  • Regular cleansing and disinfection : You really have to take care of contact lenses, even if it only takes a few minutes a day.
