Contact Lenses Ithaca

At Trumansburg Optical, we make obtaining healthy eyes easy. Achieving better vision is possible using the latest optometry technology, alongside vision correction. The majority of people will need vision correction at some point since vision changes occur with aging. Fortunately, there are many solutions you can choose from, including Lasik, glasses and contacts. If you’d prefer something more subtle, contacts are a great option. Talk to our lead optometrist, Dr. Henninger, to learn more.   

Signs You May Need Glasses or Contacts

It’s not always obvious to tell if it’s time for vision correction. In many cases, the changes occur gradually over time. Some individuals need glasses when they are children, while others don’t require them until they are adults. A few symptoms to watch out for include: 

  • Eye strain caused by looking at things too close or too far away
  • Blurry vision
  • Trouble focusing the eyes
  • Double vision
  • Halos around bright objects or lights
  • Distorted vision 

Since some symptoms are associated with certain eye diseases, it’s important to visit an optometrist whenever you’re having trouble with your vision. We will do a full assessment to see if there is an underlying cause. Typically, however, it’s just a matter of getting vision correction. We’ll test your visual acuity and determine what your prescription is. 

Should I choose Contacts or Glasses?

When it comes to vision correction, you can’t go wrong with either glasses or contacts. On the one hand, glasses are perfect for those who want a lower maintenance choice. Glasses are easy to remove and put on, and they can look stylish, too. However, contacts are a great option if you’re looking to keep your original appearance. Contacts do not change the way you look. Plus, contacts are great if you are an athlete and don’t want to potentially break your glasses while on the field. 

When it comes down to it, however, it’s a matter of personal preference. Some individuals use a combination of glasses and contacts, which provides options for you to choose between. No matter what you’re considering, our team will help you find the right solution. Your comfort is our ultimate goal, so you can expect to be satisfied with what we have to offer. We have a wide range of designer frames available if you’d like to explore them and try a few pairs on. Of course, if you already know you’d prefer contacts, that’s fine, too! We want you to be happy with your decision, so take your time to find the right form of vision correction for your lifestyle.
