Contact Lenses

InFocus Eye Care Bend Oregon

Residents of Central Oregon enjoy an active lifestyle. For some, eyeglasses can be a hindrance to the activities they most enjoy. An estimated 20 percent of people who require corrective vision choose contact lenses for their comfort, ease, and increased security during sports and other outdoor activities.

Modern advancements have made contacts available to nearly everyone with diminished vision due to nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The doctors at InFocus Eye Care can help you find a pair of lenses that meets your needs, often times even for those who have previously been told they could not wear contact lenses.

Types of Contact Lenses

The first step to determining if you need contact lenses is to have a comprehensive eye exam with Dr. Winter Lewis. Dr. Lewis will apply his years of experience in suggesting the lenses that will work best for you. There are two basic types of contact lenses:

  • Soft contact lenses that can correct vision disorders like myopia and hyperopia
  • Gas-permeable contact lenses that provide sharper vision for people with astigmatism and higher order aberrations

The type of contact lenses Dr. Lewis prescribes will depend on your eyes. 

Other options, such as colored contact lenses to enhance or change your eye color and daily disposable lenses are also available. 

Taking Care of Your Eyes with Contact Lenses

Proper care of your contacts will greatly reduce your risk of problems like irritation and infection. Dr. Lewis and our team of technicians will educate you on proper insertion, handling, and care to ensure successful contact lens wear. Regular vision exams at InFocus Eye Care are also imperative in detecting early signs of complications associated with contact lens wear.
