Choosing the Contact Lenses for Your Lifestyle in Tacoma

Both glasses and contact lenses can correct common eye problems like nearsightedness and farsightedness, but contact lenses may be a better fit for your lifestyle. For reasons of aesthetics and convenience, you may consider contact lenses in Tacoma or Gig Harbor.

At Family EyeCare Associates, we’ll start with a Tacoma eye exam. You can then speak with a Tacoma eye doctor to choose the contacts that best fit your lifestyle.

Here are some considerations to make when choosing your contacts.

Active Lifestyle in Tacoma

Are you part of a Tacoma sports team? Do you always spend your spare time at the gym? Contact lenses in Gig Harbor are ideal for your active lifestyle. Of course, if you plan on going swimming, make sure to take your contacts out first.

Dailies vs. Weeklies vs. Monthlies

Some contacts are meant to be worn once and then thrown away. Others are reusable for a limited time. Talk to your Tacoma eye doctor about which types of contacts are best for you. You can get daily contact lenses, which you use for one day. Weekly contact lenses should be used for no longer than a week. There are even monthly contacts!

Care and Cleaning

No matter which types of contacts suit your needs, you must care for them. Your eye doctor should tell you how to take care of your Tacoma contact lenses. For weekly or monthly contacts, you’ll often soak them in a cleaning solution overnight.

Don’t feel like taking that time and effort? Dailies should be thrown out after usage so you don’t have to stress about cleaning.
