At Lens Lab Express, we’re your full service store for contact lenses. We’ll prescribe them for you, examine you to ensure that you can wear them without any problems, and fit them on you for comfort. If you haven’t considered contact lenses in a while, you may be surprised to find that today’s are easier to wear and provide better visual benefits than ever before. Our contact lenses in Maspeth include a variety of types to suit your every need.
The basic categories for contact lenses are soft and hard. Among soft lenses, there are also several subcategories that are designed to meet the demands of your unique lifestyle. Hard contacts are a little more challenging to get used to wearing, but they are typically the best ones for correcting severe nearsightedness or astigmatism. They also provide the sharpest and clearest vision among our contact lenses in Maspeth. Soft lenses come in daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and color-changing. Daily wear are put in each morning and can remain in your eyes for up to 18 hours before being removed to clean so that you can wear them again the next day. Extended wear can be left in your eyes overnight. Disposable are worn just one time before being discarded. And color-changing gives you the opportunity to try on an entirely new eye color. You don’t even need vision correction to enjoy them. Our contacts also come in bifocal or multifocal if you have more than one vision issue to address.
A contact lens exam involves checking the parts of your eyes that are touched when you wear them. This includes your conjunctiva, corneas, and eyelids. The curve of your corneas will also be checked. This will reduce the chance of an eye infection or inflammation being caused. In addition, our contact lenses in Maspeth will only help you if you actually wear them. And you probably won’t if they’re not comfortable when you put them in. A fitting will make certain that they sit in your eyes properly and also that you’re getting maximum benefit from them by centering them in your eyes.
