Contact lenses are a popular alternative to traditional eyeglasses for vision correction. This convenient and comfortable option provides an unobstructed field of view. Cosmetic lenses, also known as colored contact lenses or decorative lenses, are a type of contact lens designed to change the appearance of the eyes. Unlike regular contact lenses meant to correct vision, cosmetic lenses are primarily used for aesthetic purposes to enhance the natural eye color or create a different eye appearance. If you're considering contact lenses, visit Griswold Eye Care in Jewett City, CT.
What Are Contact Lenses?
Contact lenses are thin, curved discs made of different materials. The materials may be soft silicone hydrogel or rigid gas permeable (RGP). Contact lenses are placed directly on the surface of the eye.
Our eye care professionals assess eye health and measure prescriptions. We recommend the most suitable contact lenses for your needs. During fitting, our optometrist evaluates the shape and size of your eye. We ensure comfort and fit. Our practice will conduct tests to determine the right contact lens parameters. These tests include base curve, diameter, and prescription power.
