Like LASIK and glasses, contact lenses can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Contact lenses have been around for more than a hundred years. Many advancements have been made that allow just about everyone to wear contact lenses. If you were told years ago that you couldn't wear contact lenses, odds are that isn't the case today. Schedule an appointment with Benjamin Eye Care today to see what your options are for contact lenses.
