If you need prescription eyewear, you could either choose to wear contact lenses in San Francisco or eyeglasses. What best for you will depend on many factors including eye health, personal preference, comfort and lifestyle. When you come to our practice, our expert, Edward Soss, OD will assist you in making the right choice for you.
Prescription contact lenses in San Francisco and eyeglasses both offer vision correction. They’re both very effective, have their benefits but are very different. A good fit for one patient might not be the right one for another. Patients who are interested in contact lenses, would need to be examined to find out if they are a candidate. The good news is, because of the modern advancements in eyewear, the majority of people are able to get contact lenses. You will need to have an additional eye exam if you want contacts. This special exam is called a contact lens exam and fitting. It enables the eye doctor to determine the right contact lenses for you. The right contact lenses will need to fit correctly and comfortably and provide you with good vision correction. If you choose contact lenses, we have a great selection of brands available. We offer many different types as well such as soft contacts, hard contacts, daily wear and extended wear. Sometimes contacts are not the right option for patients. Because contact lenses have to be worn inside the eye, patients who are not comfortable with the feeling of having something in the eye or with placing and removing them, would do better with eyeglasses. If you decide that eyeglasses are a better fit for you, we carry a very large selection of both generic and designer brands. Our frame specialist will gladly assist you in finding the perfect frames for you.
