Choose From a Range of Contacts
Patients who are looking for an easy and discreet solution for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism can choose from a variety of contacts at our practice. In Westminster and Northglenn, CO, Montgomery Eye Care uses advanced technology to meet your eye care needs. Dr. Jim E Montgomery will conduct a thorough exam and discuss your lifestyle, budget, and more to help you choose the best type of contact lenses.
What to Expect During Your Exam
Contacts are thin curved lenses placed directly in the eye. Lenses can be hard or soft, and some can enhance eye color. The contacts offered at Montgomery Eye Care require a prescription and can help correct a number of eye conditions, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.
Contact lenses are an affordable and comfortable alternative to prescription glasses.
Determining prescriptions and recommendations for eyeglasses and contact lenses varies in several ways. At Montgomery Eye Care, we use several tests and advanced technologies to determine a patient’s exact needs. During the comprehensive eye exam, measurements will be taken to match the size and shape of your eyes. Dr. Montgomery uses this information to choose a comfortable contact lens best suited to your needs and goals.
Contact Lenses vs. Prescription Glasses
Contact lenses are an affordable and comfortable alternative to prescription glasses. Although glasses are a trusted way to improve your vision, they can compromise peripheral vision, fog with temperature change, and smudge easily. Compared to glasses, contacts are easy to clean and maintain. Patients who wear glasses often complain about the weight and awareness of the frames. Contact lenses can be worn during even strenuous activities without falling off or being broken. Other benefits to choosing contact lenses include:
- No re-adjusting throughout the day
- No worrying about matching outfits to frames or ability to wear sunglasses
- No change to physical appearance
- No glare from the glass lens
- No distortion of vision due to distance between the lens and the eye
Similar to prescription glasses, contact lenses are used to treat eye conditions with various strengths and shapes of the lenses. Depending on your unique needs, contact lenses can be monovision, bifocal, or multifocal to help you achieve crisp, clear vision at various distances.
Caring for Contact Lenses
The care and cleaning of contact lenses are an important part of preventing eye infections and inflammation. While contact lenses should never be slept in, they are designed to be worn for different lengths of time. To prevent eye complications, it is recommended that patients clean their contact lenses daily. Always use fresh contact solution and follow instructions listed on the bottle closely. Most importantly, some solutions contain peroxide and should never be placed directly in the eye. Gently rub both sides of the contact lens and place in a storage case until you are ready to wear the lens again. This process can be skipped altogether by choosing daily disposable contact lenses.

"My friend referred me to Dr. Montgomery who was VERY patient, and determined I had a virus, complicated by dry eye. I have been working with him for over about two years now, and my eye is MUCH better under his very professional care. If you have an ongoing problem, or just need a good eye doc, I highly recommend him."Review From ratemds.com
