At 10/10 Optics we take pride in knowing that our opticians & optometrists are trained in fitting you with the best choices in eye wear.
People choose to wear contact lenses instead of glasses for any number of reasons, including appearance, comfort, convenience, and practicality. However, when wearing contacts, you must care for them properly to keep your eyes healthy.
As this video demonstrates, removing your contact lenses each night is important for maintaining the health of your eyes. Wearing your contact lenses while you sleep deprives your eyes of oxygen and may lead to a number of painful disorders of the eye. Even brands of contact lenses approved for sleep may lead to eye health problems. Always follow the guidance of your optometrist for cleaning and maintaining your contact lenses.

Does your current eyeglass prescription give you 20/20 vision, but leave you straining to read a menu in a dimly lit restaurant or a faraway road sign at night? If your current lenses leave you disappointed, you may want to ask your optometrist about digitally designed lenses.
Digital lenses, also known as free-form lenses, undergo an advanced manufacturing process that reduces higher-order aberrations typical of traditional lens manufacturing. With digital manufacturing, fabrication of the eyeglasses is optimized to the wearer’s prescription with computer-controlled surfacing equipment. Because of this, it is much more precise than conventional fabrication methods. Indeed, digital lens technology can surface lenses in power increments of 0.01 diopter, whereas conventional technology can only surface lenses in increments of 0.125 to 0.25 diopter. In addition, digital lenses take into account how the lenses are positioned in front of the wearer’s eyes in a particular frame, the angle between the eye and the back surface of the lens in different gaze positions, the size of the frame, and the position of the wearer’s pupil relative to the outline of the frame.
Because digital lenses are fabricated so precisely according to the wearer’s prescription, they offer unprecedented benefits in terms of customization. What’s more, the manufacturing process itself eliminates a number of aberrations typically found in conventional eyeglasses. This can increase the field of view up to 38% and reduce halos, starbursts, and comet-shaped distortions of light at night. In addition, digital lenses can provide sharper image quality, improved contrast sensitivity, better peripheral vision, and reduced glare, especially at night.

Choosing between contact lenses and glasses often involves personal preference. Some people like the look of glasses, while others prefer their faces unadorned. However, one important factor your optometrist will have you consider when making this decision is your personal lifestyle. For people with busy lives that include travel or sports, there are a number of clear advantages to choosing contacts over glass—or even contacts and glasses. There are a variety of contact lenses on the market, and your optometrist can help you select the right ones for you:
Contact Lenses Make Travel Easy
There are a number of well-known advantages to contact lenses. One advantage for heavy travelers is that contact lenses make travel easy. Contact lenses are compact, requiring just the small lens case and a travel-size bottle of lens solution. What’s more, unlike glasses, which people often set down and then forget, you’re always wearing your contacts, so you’re much less likely to lose them or leave them behind while you’re away.
Contact Lenses Help Athletes Perform Better
Contact lenses are much better than glasses for athletes. They offer better peripheral vision than standard glasses. In addition, they provide an unobstructed field of view, because there are no frames to block or distort your vision. Unlike glasses, contact lenses are less prone to fog up during rainy or snowy weather. There is also a reduced chance of injury with contact lenses, because they won’t break if you take a hit to the face. Finally, for sports that require safety headgear or protective goggles, contact lenses won’t interfere with fit or comfort.
