Due to modern contact lens technology, contact lens wear is growing rapidly, particularly for:
- The over 45 age group
- People of all ages when taking part in sporting activities
- Part-time/occasional wear as a change from spectacles
Many people also feel they look more natural wearing them. What’s more, contact lenses offer excellent all round vision and are ideal for those with active lifestyles.
These days there’s no need to be concerned about putting a lens on your eye. Modern contact lenses are soft and supple, making them much more comfortable than before. In fact you’ll soon forget you’re even wearing them.
Modern contact lens materials allow correct levels of oxygen into the eye and can keep the eye moist.
Disposable lenses have made contact lenses more convenient. An increasing number of people who usually wear spectacles find that daily disposables are ideal for sports and social occasions. You can use them as little or as often as you like, and you don’t even need to worry about cleaning and storage solutions.
Presbyopia (which affects most of us over 45, where a person has different prescriptions for near and distant vision) is no longer a problem as there are now excellent progressive contact lenses available which are hugely successful.
Teenagers are also a growing sector for contact lens wearers as more and more parents are seeing the benefit of their children wearing contact lenses rather than glasses for activities such as football, rugby and dance.
