In Prosper, Our Optometry Business Offers You Lens Options
Prosper Eye Gallery in Prosper, TX, has glasses and contacts with lenses to help you accomplish tasks more easily and more comfortably.
With progressive lenses, one pair of glasses allows you to see near, far, and in-between. Without these lenses, you would have to use one pair of glasses to see distance objects and then remove them and put on another pair to read or do close-up work.
Look through the upper section of the lens to see distance objects and the middle section to see objects at intermediate distances. The bottom section allows you to do close-up viewing.
Like progressive glasses, multifocal contact lenses allow you to see subjects at near, far, and at intermediate distances with one pair of contacts. The movement of your pupils controls the distances you can see.
Blue Light Blocking Lenses
Blue light is part of the visible light spectrum. Computer screens, smartphone screens, LED lights, the sun and other sources all emit blue light. Some studies say that exposure to blue light near bedtime can prevent you from falling asleep.
Some computer and smartphone users blame blue light for eye strain. If you think blue light is disrupting your life, come to see our experts in optometry. We have blue light blocking lenses we can recommend.
We also have contact lenses for children who may be candidates for orthokeratology, also known as Ortho-K. This unique therapy involves the use of special contacts that temporarily reshape the patient’s corneas.
These contact lenses are soft, disposable, and they have been approved by the FDA. They may be classified as high-tech lenses.
Children 8 to 12 years of age wear them 10 hours a day, usually at night. This slows the progression of nearsightedness. These contact lenses are a good option for children. Because their eyes are still changing, conventional surgery and LASIK procedures are not an option.
Self-Darkening Contact Lenses
Glasses that darken automatically in the presence of sunlight or artificial light have been available for a long time. Contact lenses of this type are a newer option, being developed almost 30 years later. If you prefer light-sensitive contact lenses, ask one of our optometry specialists to recommend some.
