Trumansburg Contact Lenses

At Trumansburg Optical, we understand that fashion and comfort both have a lot to do with your choices in eyewear. For instance, thick-framed glasses might look great on you, pushing you in that direction. Conversely, you might want to avoid glasses altogether. In that case, contact lenses provide a convenient and comfortable solution. In our downtown Trumansburg shop, we carry a range of different lenses, helping to restore your vision while avoiding the maintenance and appearance of glasses. Give us a call or stop in today to learn more about our contact lenses, and how they can help you see well and look great!

Soft Daily Vs. Monthly Lenses

Depending on your prescription and your preferences, Trumansburg Optical can set you up with daily disposable lenses, or longer-term bi-weekly or monthly lenses! Understanding the differences in these lenses can help you make a better-informed decision the next time you stop into our Trumansburg office.

Daily Lenses, as their name suggests, are only worn for one day, then discarded. These are more convenient than monthly lenses, as you don’t have to store or disinfect them, unlike monthly or bi-weekly lenses. Contact lens solution is also less of a concern, especially if you keep spare single lenses in your purse or backpack.

Bi-weekly or Monthly Lenses are longer-lasting and more durable lenses which can be worn repeatedly. In most cases, you’ll remove and disinfect your lenses every night, preventing irritation and dryness while you sleep. We also carry lenses that can be worn overnight, though regular disinfecting is still an important step in your contact lens care.

Using contacts

Taking proper care of your contacts and your eyes will help you avoid painful (and potentially dangerous) experiences. Here are a few precautions you can take:

  • Washing your hands before handling contacts – this will help prevent infection-causing bacteria from entering your eyes.
  • Replacing contacts regularly – whether your contacts need to be replaced every day or only once a month, keep track of the lifespan of your contacts and avoid overusing them.
  • Do not sleep in your contacts – unless you are wearing lenses that specify they are sleep-friendly, take out your contacts and safely store them in contact lens solution while you sleep.
  • Rinse or apply contact lens rewetting drops if contacts sting – dirt, dust or eyelashes can cause discomfort and irritation if trapped within your contact. Rinse your contacts with solution if they are hurting your eyes.
