More About Contact Lenses

Contact lenses are the perfect solution for those who do not want to wear spectacles and do not want a surgical vision correction also. Contact lenses do not restrict your field of vision (no edge effects due to the spectacle frame) and move with the eye, and significantly reduce distortions. Also unlike glasses, they do not fog up or result in reduced visibility in the rain. Contact lenses offer better cosmesis and are more practical for sports and outdoor activities than glasses.

Type Of Contact Lens

You might not have symptoms in the early stages of diabetic retinopathy. As the condition progresses, diabetic retinopathy symptoms may include:

Hard Contact Lens

The most common type of hard contact lens is a rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lens. These lenses are usually made from plastic combined with other materials. They hold their shape firmly, yet they let oxygen flow through the lens to your eye.
RGP lenses are especially helpful for people with astigmatism and a condition called keratoconus. This is because they provide sharper vision than soft lenses when the cornea is unevenly curved. People who have allergies or tend to get protein deposits on their contacts may also prefer RGP lenses.

Soft Contact Lens

  • Daily wear contacts
  • Extended wear contacts
  • Toric contacts
  • Colored (tinted) contacts
  • Decorative (cosmetic) contacts

Myths / Frequently Asked Questions

1Can a contact lens get lost behind my eye?
Answer: No. At worst, you might have trouble finding it under your upper eyelid if you rub your eye and dislodge the lens from its proper position. If necessary, your eye care professional or doctor can help you locate and remove the lens.
2How old must children be before they can wear contact lenses?
Answer: That depends on how responsible the child is. This decision is best made jointly between you, your child and your eye doctor.
3What kinds of contacts are available?
Answer: Contact lenses come in various material types, replacement schedules and wear schedules. Many wearers find disposable contact lenses and extended wear contacts are the most convenient.
4Is there really a big difference between daily wear and extended wear contact lenses?
Answer: Yes. Extended wear contacts are made of special materials that allow more oxygen to reach your eye, which makes them safer for wear during sleep. The FDA determines the maximum amount of time that extended wear lenses can be worn before removal. Some brands are approved for up to seven days of continuous wear; others can be worn for up to 30 days.
5Can I wear contacts if I have bifocal eyeglasses?
