Living life with blurry, unfocused vision is simply not an option. Unfortunately, millions of Americans have vision that is less than perfect. Whether due to nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, many patients are unable to enjoy crisp, clear vision without the assistance of prescription lenses. The good news is that these patients have a number of options to consider when it comes to corrective eyewear, and Dr. Jeffrey E. Schultz is dedicated to helping patients find eyewear that effectively improves vision while accommodating each patient’s unique fashion sense and lifestyle choices. Most patients wonder whether glasses or contact lenses are the best solution for their vision impairment. Dr. Schultz discusses contact lenses vs. glasses to help his Cleveland, OH patients find an eyewear solution that best meets their unique needs and desires.

Eyeglasses

Despite the numerous options for vision correction, eyeglasses continue to be one of the most popular choices for corrective eyewear. Glasses are easy to use, can be changed as needed to meet a patient’s evolving prescription needs, and allow patients to express their personality and fashion sense. Rather than dread the idea of eyeglasses, many patients see it as an extra fashion accessory. This is largely due to the numerous options available in eyewear. Far from the thick, black frames that were once the standard, patients can now choose from a variety of stylish frames, many of which are designer brands. Dr. Shultz carries a comprehensive line of eyeglasses, including those by Calvin Klein®, Fendi®, and Oga®. Whether a patient is looking for a pair of glasses that is practical, fun, or trendy, Dr. Schultz and his staff can help them find a frame to meet his or her needs. Aside from looking good, glasses are carefully measured and adjusted to ensure that patients will enjoy a secure and comfortable fit.

Contact Lenses

Although eyeglasses continue to be a popular choice for vison correction, they are not right for everyone. Patients who would like to improve their vision without wearing glasses often opt for contact lenses. Like glasses, contact lenses can accommodate changes in vision prescription and offer a non-invasive solution to vision impairment. Additional benefits of contact lenses include the fact that they are discreet and unnoticeable, and their secure fit. Patients simply insert contact lenses in the morning and then don’t have to worry throughout the day about removing them or losing them. They fit comfortably and can effectively treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Dr. Schultz offers a number of contact lenses in order to address each patient’s unique vision needs. He offers rigid and soft lenses, as well as multifocal, toric, and custom lenses.  

Schedule an Appointment

Glasses and contact lenses are ideal for patients who have unstable eye prescriptions, those who are poor candidates for LASIK, or those who simply are not interested in laser eye surgery. If you’d like to be fitted for a pair of glasses or contact lenses, Dr. Jeffrey Schultz can help. Schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience to find out which corrective lens is right for you.
