Experience Contact lenses

Yesterday I met my friend after a long time and I was astonished to see him wearing a sunglass which I have never seen him wearing. I learnt that he has been wearing contact lenses since a couple of days and that he had irritations in his eye when dust particles came into contact. But hold on, he told me that he is just getting used to it and that he will feel comfortable after 2 or 3 days. Another friend of mine also had similar experience like this during his first week with tears always descending from his eyes but now he is feeling good and with ease.

Contact lenses are getting popular and are mandatory for some critical cases of eye defects like astigmatism and keratoconus. They are placed in the cornea of the eye and perform better than conventional spectacles. They are available in different forms according to their utility. Disposable lenses are safer because there is minimum chance of infections and are hygienic. Soft contact lenses are soothing on the eyes. Semi-soft lenses are prescribed for persons with high cylindrical power. These lenses are also available in different colors.

Maintaining your contact lenses needs a lot of attention and care. There are certain rules to be followed for using contact lenses safely. You should always wash your hands with soap and rinse with clean water before handling contact lenses. Clean the lenses using the given solution daily. Never forget to remove your lenses before going to sleep. Never use tap water, saline water or saliva to clean the lenses. Seek medical attention in case of red eyes or irritation. It is always good to have spare conventional glasses to give your eyes some rest from contact lenses. And as always do consult your Ophthalmologist once a year for healthy vision and happy life...
