Once upon a time, when contact lenses first hit the market, options were extremely limited. Not only could contacts not really treat anything except relatively mild nearsightedness and farsightedness, they didn’t come in any other style besides hard lenses that didn’t breathe very well. As you can imagine, this excluded a whole lot of people from this new vision correction technology. Even if your vision correction needs meshed with the capabilities of early contacts, you still might not be able to get used to wearing them due to allergies, poor tear formation or any of a number of other problems. Thankfully, however, the story is much different in 2014. These days, we here at Paul Thompson, OD’s Downtown Vegas optical store are able to prescribe contacts to more patients than ever before.
The diversity of modern contacts can be categorized in lots of different ways: according to the material they’re made from; according to the recommended schedule for removal, cleaning and disposal; and according to function, to name a few. But no matter how you want to sort them out, we here at the Downtown Vegas optical store of Paul Thompson, OD, have what you’re looking for. Are you on the prowl for soft, breathable lenses that you throw away at the end of each day? We have you covered. What about lenses specially designed to correct astigmatism or presbyopia? We have those too. (That’s right! Contacts can be made to be multi-focal now!) Or maybe you’ve got 20/20 vision and you’re simply on the market for some funky-colored costume lenses? Yup, we even have those in stock. Really, there’s not much we don’t carry.
