contact lenses for Nearsighted

Are you having problems making out headlights or street signs especially at night? Are you finding that you need to be closer to your tv or have to sit in the front of the class to see clearly? If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you are likely “nearsighted” & should pay a visit to your eye doctor.

The medical term for nearsightedness is “myopia” & is a common refractive error resulting from your eye having too much “power” when at rest. By wearing the correct “minus“ powered contact lens, the extra power is “neutralized” & the images for faraway then become clear or “focused“ on you retina. Contact lenses for nearsightedness are available on our website & come in a variety of brands. To purchase search our website for the brand that was recommended or prescribed by your eye care professional. If you weren’t given a recommendation & you’re uncertain of what to buy Contact Lenses BC highly recommends soft lenses made of silicone hydrogel material due to their superior breathability & ocular health advantages.

Notable & affordable monthly & biweekly brands are Biofinity, Encore, Air Optix, Acuvue Vita, Acuvue Oasys & Bausch + Lomb Ultra. Notable daily disposable brands are Clariti 1 Day, My Day Dailies Total 1,Acuvue Oasys 1 Day & Acuvue True Eye.

Once you’ve determined the lens you want, enter your prescription parameters in the required fields. If you don’t know your base curve a good rule of thumb is to select the smallest option. Most contacts come in just 1 diameter.
