The experts at our Lake View East optical store, Chicago Vision Club, understand the difficulties that come along with having an eye condition that is especially severe. That is why we offer the option of gas permeable or “hard” contact lenses for those who are unable to wear soft contact lenses. Soft contact lenses are the type of lenses that are typically prescribed because they are especially comfortable and easy to wear, but they are not effective enough for all eye patients. Hard, or gas permeable lenses, are not as easy or comfortable to wear as soft contact lenses but they do provide sharper, clearer vision for patients that need it. Those with severe astigmatism or nearsightedness usually are the ones that need to use hard or gas permeable contact lenses. Although these hard lenses are often more difficult to adjust to, you will notice a vast improvement in your visual quality and should find them easier to wear as time goes on.
Our eye professionals at Chicago Vision Club will help you learn how to take them out and insert them in to your eye, and will discuss how they feel with you. They will also make sure that they are fit to your eye as precisely as possible in order to ensure the optimal level of comfort. At our Lake View East optical store, we carry a wide range of brands of contact lenses, so we will recommend what we think is best for you and change the brand if you are unhappy with the lenses you currently have.
