Cohen's Fashion Optical Offers Contact Lens Advice

NEW YORK, Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Cohen's Fashion Optical, a major fashion retailer that provides eye exams and designer eyewear, shares questions to ask your doctor when thinking about purchasing contact lenses.

Have you ever thought about getting contact lenses? Before you go ahead and buy either colored contacts, or even extended wear contacts, we have put together a list of the questions that you should ask your doctor. Below we focus on contact lens care, contact lens cost, daily disposable contacts, and even colored contact lenses.

How Often Do You Wear Contacts? Whether you wear contact lenses every day, or just occasionally, you will need to choose the right contacts based on how frequently you wear them. If you rarely wear contacts, you should purchase single-use daily disposable lenses. However, if you would like to wear contacts more regularly, extended contacts are the lenses for you. They are FDA-approved up to 30 days of continuous wear. There are also several in-between wear length contacts; daily, weekly, bi-weekly lenses. How Much Do You Want to Pay for Contacts? Contact lens cost are based on several factors: prescription type, contact lens brand, how often you wear them, and where you purchase them. Soft contact lenses can range from $22 to $26 per box, with a 12-month supply for both eyes costing from $440 to $520. You will pay a comparable price to single-use daily disposable contacts. The cost of contacts increases if you need toric lenses, to correct astigmatism, or if you need bifocal lenses ($50 to $70). When purchasing colored contacts, expect to spend 80% more than you would for non-tinted lenses. Are You Willing to Care for Your Contact Lenses? Some contact lenses require more attention and care than others. Reusable contacts will require the "rub and rinse" lens cleaning process. You will use contact lens solution for proper cleaning. Single-use disposable contacts and extended wear contacts have reduced the amount of care you need to take with your lenses, almost eliminating the need for contact lens solution. However, you must still maintain proper eye health – clean hands and minimal eye contact with water. Are Overnight Contacts Important to You? Extended wear contacts might be for you if you like to wake up with clear vision. However, extended wear contact lenses for nighttime aren't always appropriate for everyone. Ask your doctor if you can wear overnight lenses. Do You Want to Change Your Eye Color? Colored contacts are for fashion and fun. You can get colored lenses with prescription in them or even a lens without anything. However, the tinted contacts will cost more than any other regular prescription lenses.
