20s and 30s Vision Correction

A regular eye exam is the best way to protect your eyesight. It is particularly important if you notice a change in your vision, if your eye is injured in any way, or if you have a family history of eye disease. You should have an eye exam at least every two years. Remember, problems may develop without any signs or symptoms.

Your 20/20 vision may come with the help of glasses or contact lenses. Regardless, if you’re doing the right things to help maintain good health, your eyesight can stay at the same level for a decade or more.You probably already know if you’re nearsighted, farsighted or if you have astigmatism. These are common vision issues that may have been discovered when you were in your teens or younger. At this age you may have more vision correction options than eyeglasses and contact lenses.  

Contact Lenses

twenty thirty inbriefContact lenses are designed for specific wearing times. Depending on what’s best for your eyes, your eye care professional may recommend a lens designed for daily replacement, or frequent/planned replacement. It’s really important to follow the replacement schedule your eye care professional gave you – it tells you when you need new lenses. Following it will help keep your eyes healthy and comfortable – so make sure you stick to it.

Bausch + Lomb offers soft and gas permeable contact lens choices for almost every type of vision correction and lifestyle. Ask your eye care professional about monthly replacement lenses like Bausch + Lomb ULTRA contact lenses or daily disposable lenses like Biotrue ONEday contact lenses

Orthokeratology

Have you heard of orthokeratology? That is when your eye care professional prescribes shaping lenses that are custom-fitted to the specific contour of your eyes. Every night, these shaping lenses gently reshape your eye to correct your vision while you sleep. In the morning, you take your shaping lenses out and see clearly during the day. 

Bausch + Lomb Vision Shaping Treatment (VST) effectively treats nearsightedness and mild astigmatism. Bausch + Lomb Vision Shaping Treatment (VST) corrects your vision while you sleep so you can enjoy clear vision during the day without glasses or contact lenses.

Laser Surgery

You may consider laser surgery for vision correction at this age (generally laser surgery is not considered for anyone under 18). Typical vision problems, such as mild to moderate farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism may be corrected with laser vision correction. If you are interested in this option, talk to your eye care professional to see if you may be a good candidate.
