eye with a small rubber ban
Contact Lenses are very different from traditional glasses. Traditional glasses are made up of thick plastic lenses that are attached to the front of your eye with a small rubber band. When the lens is removed, the wearer now has a completely clear view of the world around him. Because of this, contact lenses are also called vision prosthetics and many people wear them for therapeutic or cosmetic reasons. But today’s contact lenses are not the same plastic devices they used to be. Today’s contact lenses are lighter, stronger, and much more comfortable than their counterparts.
There are two main categories of contact lenses: daily wear and long term wear. Daily wear lenses contain a gas-permeable protein and a layer of a lubricating agent. This layer helps to hold the contact lens in place and prevent it from rubbing off. Some daily wear contact lenses even feature disposable lenses that can be replaced. These replaceable daily wear lenses come with an extended warranty that covers replacement if the protein or lubricant layer becomes cracked, worn, or otherwise compromised over time. However, some daily wear contact lenses require a prescription to be bought and must be used every single day; contact lenses that don’t require a prescription are called “disposable lenses”.
long term contact lenses can’t be replaced
Long term wear contact lenses are typically used for a limited period of time; they’re designed to be replaced every few months. Unlike daily wear contacts that can be replaced, long term contact lenses can’t be replaced. Instead, they’re held in place until they wear out. They might be replaced quarterly or annually depending on the individual eye. The length of time a contact lens is worn depends largely on how it is worn. If they are worn for an extended period of time, their effectiveness decreases as a result of the buildup of stress on the cornea.
The good news about wear-and-forget contact lenses is that they are usually much more comfortable than daily wear lenses. However, like any other type of eye care, you should still see an eye care professional every few months to ensure they are still in good condition. He or she will take a look at your eye to determine the overall health of your eyes and prescribe the appropriate dosage. It’s very important to follow your eye doctor’s orders regarding your contact lenses. Doing so can not only improve your vision, but it can also reduce any potential damage caused by frequent wearing of the lenses.
purchase a new prescription contact lenses
If you wear corrective colored contact lenses, you will also need to purchase a new prescription contact lenses. As mentioned before, prescription contact lenses don’t come with the option of wearing for the entire time you’re wearing them. This means you will have to purchase separate lenses each day if you want to wear corrective colored contact lenses. However, most people prefer colored contact lenses because the effects can be more dramatic. And because there are no lines separating the lenses when you wear them, you’ll often find that vision correction is better with the lenses.
Even though you may not be wearing contact lenses for a while, you should still visit your eye doctor at least once a year. Your eye doctor can determine whether your glasses or contact lenses are causing you discomfort or not. If you find that your vision correction is suffering, either because you have a nearsightedness problem or you have an astigmatism, your eye care professional may be able to help you find a solution to your issue. If nothing else, your eye care professional will be able to advise you on whether wearing corrective lenses is right for your particular situation.
