Sunny days, clear vision: why contact lenses are a summer must-have

Do you ever feel like your glasses are keeping you from enjoying some of summer’s fun activities? If so, have you considered contact lenses as an alternative? Wearing contacts can give you newfound freedom and confidence to make this summer an unforgettable experience. Discover why wearing contact lenses this summer could be the perfect choice for your lifestyle.

Embrace the benefits of contact lenses in the summer

There’s no denying the convenience and freedom they offer, especially for those who lead active lifestyles. While there are many benefits to wearing contact lenses, here are just a few reasons we think you should consider making the switch this summer:

  • Unlike glasses, contact lenses provide a wider field of vision, allowing you to soak in every inch of your surroundings without any obstructions that you find frames present you with.
  • Engaging in summer sports becomes a breeze with contact lenses. Not only do they eliminate the risk of glasses falling off, but they also allow you to see clearly at all times.
  • Whether you’re dealing with astigmatism, myopia, or presbyopia, contact lenses offer a tailored solution to correct your vision and are available in virtually all prescriptions, ensuring you don’t miss out on any summer fun.
  • Humid environments often accompanying summer adventures can wreak havoc on glasses, causing them to fog up. Contact lenses remain unaffected in these conditions, ensuring crystal-clear vision no matter where you are.
  • Say goodbye to juggling between regular glasses and prescription sunglasses. You only need a pair of non-prescription sunglasses to wear over your contact lenses for complete UV protection.
  • Contact lens technology has come leaps and bounds, meaning they are incredibly breathable and so light you won’t even feel them on your eyes, ensuring your vision remains comfortable even during the hottest days.
  • While they are not a replacement for UV-blocking sunglasses, specific contact lenses provide some level of UV protection, offering an additional layer of defence for your eyes.

Discover the perfect fit for your visual needs

Finding the right contact lenses to suit your unique vision requirements has never been easier. An array of options is available, including daily disposables, reusable contact lenses such as 2-weekly and monthly lenses, toric lenses for astigmatism, multifocal lenses for presbyopia, and even myopia control lenses to slow down the progression of short-sightedness in children.

Based on your prescription and lifestyle needs discussed at your contact lens consultation, we can pair you with the perfect contact lenses to keep your vision clear during the summer, whether you’re looking for occasional wear or to switch from glasses to contact lenses full-time.
