What Is Contact Lens Health Week?
Contact Lens Health Week in August is a time vision professionals have set aside to focus attention on the important issue of contact lens health. Contact Lens Health Week reinforces the principles of good contact lens care, to ensure the health of your eyes.
Benefits of Wearing Contact Lenses
Contacts allow individuals to see clearly without the obstruction that eyeglass frames produce. They also allow people to engage in sports without fear of breaking their glasses. Individuals also feel more attractive without glasses, which helps them to feel more confident socially and professionally.
Types of Contact Lenses
Soft lenses have made contact lenses more comfortable to wear for millions of people. Extended wear lenses allow individuals to wear their lenses during the night. For those who have astigmatism, toric lenses correct the fuzziness that is characteristic of this problem. Bifocal and multifocal lenses correct problems with both near and far vision. Rigid gas-permeable lenses can correct a variety of refractive errors comfortably. Colored lenses allow wearers to change or enhance their eye color.
Tips For Maintaining Good Contact Lens Health
You can ensure hygienic care for your eyes by washing your hands carefully before handling your lenses. Clean out your lens container regularly with fresh solution. Periodically give your eyes a rest from wearing lenses. See your eye doctor at Eyes First Vision Center annually to have your eyes checked.
