Contact Lenses

Contact lenses move with your eye, allow a natural field of view, have no frames to obstruct your vision and greatly reduce distortions.

About Contact Lenses

Your eyesight is extremely valuable. But so is the way you look. There are many patients who are unhappy with the way they look when they wear their prescription glasses. We have a solution for this problem. It is simple, effective and even looks great – Contact Lenses. 

What are Contact Lenses?

Contact lenses correct vision in the same way that glasses do, only they are in contact with the eye. They are ocular prosthetic devices that are worn in lieu of spectacles. They are widely popular all over the globe and are used by people of all ages. 

Contact lenses are supported by the lids, cornea, conjunctiva and tear film. They act as a physical barrier to normal tear-cornea-lid mechanics and corneal metabolism. At Pandit Clinic, Dr. Jayashree Pandit will guide on how to choose the right contact lenses and how to take care of your eyes and the contact lenses. 

There are many types of contact lenses available currently. They are:

  • Soft Contact Lenses
  • Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Contact Lenses
  • Extended Wear Contact Lenses
  • Disposable (Replacement Schedule) Contact Lenses

Each lens has its advantages and disadvantages. We will help you with what works best for your purpose and eyes. 

Why You Should Consider Contact Lenses?

  • Contact lenses move with your eye, allow a natural field of view, have no frames to obstruct your vision and greatly reduce distortions.
  • They do not fog up, like glasses, nor do they get splattered by mud or rain.
  • Contact lenses do not get in the way of your activities.
  • Contact lenses leave the aesthetics of the face untouched as opposed to spectacles.
  • Contact lenses, compared to eyeglasses, generally offer better sight.

Special Notes About Contact Lenses

Contact lenses, when compared with glasses, require a longer initial examination, more follow-up visits to maintain eye health, and more time for lens care.

If you are going to wear your lenses successfully, you will have to clean and store them properly; adhere to lens-wearing schedules, and make appointments for follow-up care.

If you are wearing disposable or planned replacement lenses, you will have to carefully follow the schedule for throwing away used lenses.

Coloured Contact Lenses

The technology of contact lenses has improved vastly since its invention in the 1970s. The market is now flooded with contact lenses that have vibrant and different colours. These colours could change the way you look in a millisecond. They are safe and aesthetically beautiful to look at. They work exactly like normal (uncoloured) contact lenses. 

Coloured lenses are the perfect accessories for anyone who wants to enhance, or completely change the colour of their eyes. It is an easy way to subtly or dramatically change your look. 

There are three major types of contact lenses that are capable of changing the colour of your eyes: 

  1. enhancement tint lenses
  2. colour tint lenses
  3. theatrical lenses.

Special Notes on Coloured Contact Lenses

Just like corrective contact lenses you should never buy contact lenses from a street vendor, a beauty supply store, flea market or a novelty store. Choose your vendor carefully. Inferior quality lenses can damage your eyesight permanently. So, you should always get a prescription from a qualified ophthalmologist before opting for coloured lenses. Dr. Jayashree Pandit of Pandit Clinic is highly qualified to guide you properly in your search for coloured contact lenses.
