Best Practices, In Proper Contact Lens Handling

Posted Nov 29 2010 12:25pm

Caring for one’s eyes is similar for people with no vision correction, contact lens wearers, and patients of Lasik surgery Los Angeles eye care professionals tell us. For contact lens wearers in particular however, taking good care of your eyes can be as simple as remembering that cleanliness in handling your contact lenses is critical to eye safety.

If you have a red or painful eye or discharge, Los Angeles Lasik eye doctors strongly urge removing your contact lenses immediately, and if the redness, pain, or discharge persists for more than a few hours, you need to see your eye care provider immediately to be sure that you do not have a corneal ulcer. This dangerous infection of the cornea can lead to a permanent scar, and is more common in people wearing extended wear lenses that are leaving their contact lenses in the eye overnight.

According to a top Lasik surgeon Los Angeles patients over the age of 40 may want to consider the option of monovision where one eye is fit for distance and the other for reading. This solution does not work for everyone, but is successful for those who are very motivated to not wear glasses at all and are willing to accept some compromise in vision. Of course, if you would rather bypass your need for contact lenses altogether, you can explore your options in laser vision correction at the Beverly Hills LASIK Center.
