Contact Lenses & Low Vision Aids

At our institute a comprehensive eye check up helps us catch the disease in unsuspecting cases even before the person is aware of symptoms like frequent change of glasses, poor dark adaptation, headache mistaken to be migraine etc.

General tips for contact lens wearers

Which way is the Right way? How can I tell if my contact lens is inside out?
Make sure it looks like half a ball, not a soup bowl with a rim. Some contact lenses also have a brand name marked, on the edge to help you. If you can read it properly, the lens is not inside out.
Proper Contact Lens Care
 
Contact lenses should remove prior to swimming, showering or bathing.
– Hands should be washed thoroughly with soap – Hands should be dried well before touching contact lenses.
Contact lenses should be properly cleaned according to the instructions.
Proper disinfectant should be used to disinfect lenses; plain saline or rewetting drops are not disinfectants because they don’t kill bacteria.
Each time you place your lenses in the case, or rinse them with solution, use fresh cleaning or disinfecting products.
Throw out solution. Never reuse it or top it off with fresh solution.
Contact lenses should always be stored in a clean and disinfected case.
Storage cases should be irrigated with sterile contact lens solution (not tap water), and left open to dry after each use to reduce the risk of water-loving bacteria taking up residence. They should be replaced every three months, at least.
Contact lenses should be replaced when their scheduled wear time is up.
Regular eye examinations should be scheduled to check prescriptions and detect early signs of infection or disease.
Contact lens cases can encourage bacteria growth if not cared for properly. Lens cases should be kept clean and replaced every 3 to 6 months. Inexpensive cases, or the ones included with contact lens care kits, are safe and sufficient.
After removing your contact lenses, empty the case and rinse with fresh contact lens solution (never tap water). Cases should be cleaned after each use. Always allow the lens case to air dry. If the contact lens case gets cracked or damaged, discard it and replace it with a new one.
Colored contact lenses are not cosmetics, but are medical devices that require as much responsibility as regular contact lenses. Be sure to follow your doctor’s recommendations for care of your contact lenses. Also, never share contacts or makeup.
Contact lenses should never be stored in tap water, nor should they be rinsed with tap water. Tap water often contains microorganisms that can latch onto the lenses, encouraging eye infections. Studies have shown that an organism called acanthamoeba is sometimes found in tap water. Acanthamoeba has been known to cause a devastating eye infection that can destroy the cornea, and sometimes the entire eye. Always use a contact lens solution for storing your contacts.
If you have any pain, burning, redness, tearing or sensitivity to light while wearing any type of contact lenses, see your eye care professional immediately.
Contact lens eye drops lubricate your eye and hydrate the contact lens, making your eyes more comfortable while wearing your contact lenses. Theses eye drops are labeled “For use with soft contact lenses”. Your doctor or optometerist usually encourage frequent use of re-wetting drops, as it improves comfort and helps clear out debris underneath your contact lenses.
Contact Lenses & Allergy
Many contact lens wearers with allergies face discomfort during certain times of the year. This discomfort is due largely to allergens in the air that become adhered to contact lenses. The allergens cause miserable symptoms such as itchy, watery and swollen eyes. Here are five tips to help you through the periods of discomfort.
Allergens such as pollen and dust often adhere to the thin surfaces of contacts. Switching to glasses will help you avoid an allergy attack.
Cleaning will keep your contacts free of allergens. Consider using a preservative-free solution, to help avoid possible allergic reactions. If you wear disposable lenses, consider replacing them more often.
Allergens tend to cause dry eyes. Keep irritated eyes moist with artificial tears. The artificial tears will also wash the irritants out of your eyes.
When your eyes are red and swollen, resist the urge to rub them. Rubbing will make the inflammation worse by spreading around the allergens. A cool, damp compress will help relieve discomfort.
Your eye doctor will recommend medical products for your particular symptoms. Some products may even help prevent allergy attacks. You should also see your eye doctor to rule out possible problems that may not be allergy-related.
Decorative contact lenses tips
  • Have a detailed checkup by a eye care professional. An eye doctor will be able to perform a contact lens evaluation to make sure the lenses fit well and it is safe for you to wear them.
  • Purchase special effect contact lenses from your local eye care professional. Optometrists & ophthalmologists are licensed to dispense contact lenses and obtain them from reliable, well-recognized sources.
  • Do not purchase them at convenience stores or beauty supply stores.
  • Do not swim or sleep in decorative contact lenses.
  • Do not share or swap them with friends.
  • Always clean and disinfect your lenses before and after you wear them.

I think that Doctor’s are God. Because they give us light. If God forget to give us complete and clear vision and I think that Intralase LASIK is a very much good option for the people who have weak eyesight. I thought that why I delayed this and wasted my life suffering because of sight. I thank great doctor Ajay Khanna that I will live with my full eyesight and enjoy my life with this Doctor’s Gift.
