You read and enjoy reading a lot like me then you may be thinking about the health of your eyes all the time like I do. Am one of those who don’t wear any kind of lens but however as I grow older, definitely I should consider having contact lenses because it would be amazingly cute and awesome. You may consider trying out contacts if you want to achieve a natural beautiful look Everytime you want to feel good and healthy right? So what are contact lenses??
They are thin lenses placed directly on the surface of the eyes. Contact lenses are ocular prosthetic devices used by over 150 million people worldwide and can be worn to correct vision or for cosmetic or therapeutic reasons.
The type of contacts you use depends on your particular situation. Your optometrist will be able to help you choose from the following types of lenses.
SOFT CONTACT LENSES:
These lenses are made with materials that incorporate water, which makes them soft and flexible and allows oxygen to reach the cornea.
DAILY DISPOSABLE LENSES: Although generally more expensive, they carry a lower infection risk.
Two week or monthly disposable lenses.
TORIC CONTACT LENSES: Correct moderate astigmatism
Bifocal contact lenses: can be helpful for patients that need reading and distance correction but may not be right for everyone
GAS-PERMEABLE LENSES. These lenses are also known as “RGPs.” They are rigid or “hard” lenses made of plastics combined with other materials—such as silicone and fluoropolymers—that allow oxygen in the air to pass directly through the lens.
Always remove contacts at bedtime to avoid infection and risk of contact lens intolerance.
This Is How To Wear Them Properly:
– Wash your hands thoroughly and dry them well.
– Open your contact lens case and use your fingertip to put the first contact lens in your non-dominant hand.
– Rinse the lens with contact lens solution. Never use regular water.
– Put the lens on the top of the index or middle finger of your dominant hand.
– Check to make sure the lens isn’t damaged and that the correct side is facing up. The edges of the lens should turn up to form a bowl, not flip out. If it’s inside out, gently flip it. If the lens is damaged, don’t use it.
– Look in the mirror and hold your upper and lower eyelids open with the hand not holding the lens.
– Look in front of you or up toward the ceiling and place the lens in your eye.
Close your eye slowly and either roll your eye around or press gently on the eyelid to settle the lens in place. – The lens should feel comfortable, and you should be able to see clearly after blinking a few times. If it’s not comfortable, gently take out the lens, rinse it, and try again.
– Repeat with the second lens.
That should look and feel perfect! Live The Joy Life.
