Contact lenses provide excellent vision correction for a wide variety of patients. Some people prefer them for cosmetic reasons, and some choose to wear them because of the unobstructed field of vision. This feature is often particularly important for athletes. People who enjoy sports and activities requiring the use of goggles, such as football, skiing, and scuba, are excellent candidates for contacts.
Contacts can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. There are many options to be considered when fitting a patient with contacts, and it is important that the process not be rushed. Dr. Smith has a reputation of being especially patient when teaching new contact lens wearers the basics of contact lens insertion and removal.
Healthy eyes are the most important consideration.
