Learning About The Benefits Of Contact Lenses and Eyeglasses

Hello, my name is Curtis. I am here to talk to you about glasses and contact lenses. Obtaining my first pair of glasses was life changing in so many ways. In some ways, I struggled to fit in with my peers, as many did not wear prescription lenses. In others, I was able to improve my school performance and participate in my favorite hobbies once again. I switched to contacts later in life and experienced even more improvements. I hope you can use the information on my site to embrace your need for prescription contact lenses and eyeglasses. Thank you.

Contact Lens Care And Other Eye Care Tips To Prevent Eye Issues

Your eyes are one of the senses that helps you appreciate everything beautiful around you. Without your eyes, you could be missing out on quite a bit in your life. Taking care of your eyes is very important, and if you aren't careful, you may be setting yourself up for disaster (vision loss). If you are a contact lens wearer, you need to take care of your lenses properly in order to help take care of your eyes. Read on for tips to care for your lenses and other eye care tips.

Clean Before And After Using Them

Clean your lenses both before and after using them. Put your lens in the palm of your hand and add a few drops of contact lens solution onto the lens. Then gently rub the lens (with your finger on your other hand) with the solution on both sides to clean them. Be sure your hands are clean before handling your lenses to prevent spreading germs to your lenses and to your eyes. Your lens case should also be cleaned daily and new solution needs to be added to the case before putting your lenses into the case.

Don't Over-Wear Your Lenses

Over-wearing your lenses can cause them to thin and wear out. If your lenses are worn out, they can tear easily or may slip out of place more often. Over-wearing them can also cause problems with your vision. Only wear your lenses according to the manufacturer's directions. If the lenses are not to be worn at night, don't do this. If they are supposed to be changed daily, change them daily. Change your lenses as instructed and never over-wear them.

Don't Wear Your Lenses If You Have An Infection

Don't wear your lenses if you are experiencing issues with your eyes. If you have a stye, infection, or other eye irritation. If you are experiencing any of these, wearing your contact lenses may end up causing further eye irritation, or could cause a problem with your eyesight. Wear your eyeglasses instead of your lenses for a few days to give your eyes time to heal. 

If you are a contact lens wearer, you need to take care of your lenses and your eyes as well to keep your eyes healthy. Be sure to visit your optometrist for eye care services if you are experiencing any eye issues, and to keep your vision prescription up to date.
