Are you looking for an alternative to your prescription glasses this Buffalo summer?  Buffalo's Best Opticians is the choice for contact lenses.  It is estimated that 24 million Americans wear contact lenses, 80 percent of those users have every day wear soft lenses.  Contact lenses are worn directly on the cornea of the eyes. Just like glasses, contact lenses assist to repair refractive errors and perform this function by bringing in or deducting focusing power to the eye's cornea and lens.

Some of the types of contact lenses we offer are:

•  1-day, 2-week, 1-month, 3-month, 6-month, 1-year lenses
•  Single vision contacts, astigmatism contacts, multi-focal contacts, bi-focal contacts, mono-vision contacts
•  Sports contacts, contacts to change your eye color, Halloween contacts
•  Soft contacts, gas permeable contacts, hybrid contacts
•  Daily wear contact lenses, extended wear contact lenses

Prior to prescribing your new contact lenses the team at Buffalo’s Best Opticians will conduct an exam to determine the level of vision correction you require.  Additional procedures are then performed including keratometry or corneal topography to measure the curvature of a patients cornea, tear film evaluation, evaluating the health of the cornea and related structures, and measurements of the pupil and iris. Corneal topography is a non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye.   We also will discuss any concerns or questions that you may have about contact lenses.  At this point we can provide the appropriate recommendation for what would suit you best.

Soft Contact Lenses:

Soft contact lenses are the most frequently prescribed style of contact lenses because of the fact they are extremely comfortable.  Soft contacts are now available for patients with astigmatism and dry eyes.  Types of soft contact lenses include:
  • Daily Wear: These can be worn up to 12 hours but must be removed and cleaned at night
  • Extended Wear: These can be worn on a more flexible schedule than daily wear
  • Disposable: These are meant to be worn for a short time and then discarded
  • Color-Changing: These can change the color of your eyes even if vision correction is not needed

Hard Contact Lenses:

Also called gas-permeable or rigid lenses, hard contact lenses offer sharper vision and can correct nearsightedness or astigmatism.
