Contact Lens Care
You already know how important it is to keep your lenses clean. Deposits on the lenses can potentially lead to corneal health problems. With a frequent replacement program, you replace your lenses on a regularly scheduled basis: daily, biweekly, monthly, or quarterly.
The appropriate replacement program for you will be determined by a consultation between you and the doctor. The doctor will "custom tailor" a plan that is just right for you. Your old lenses are replaced with fresh, clean lenses, providing you with crisp, clear vision.
To assess the benefits of disposable soft contact lenses, you receive a free pair to wear on a trial basis.
FUN FACT: "DID YOU KNOW that if you do not follow the proper contact lens care instructions, this could be linked to serious eye infections? And serious eye infections could potentially lead to blindness, which can affect up to 1 out of every 500 contact lens wearers yearly?"
How to Avoid Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis
What is G.P.C.?
- A complication of the eye due to irritation or inflammation from a foreign substance, which may occur while wearing contact lenses
One of the best ways to avoid developing G.P.C. is preventive eye care through proper contact lens care by regularly washing your hands when handling the contact lens, cleaning the storage case for the contact lens, and replacing the contact lens solution as needed.
So it is important, once you receive your lenses that you carefully and conscientiously follow the lens-care regimen outlined by your eye care practitioner. Your eyes will thank you for it.
