My daughter gets used to wearing contact lens everyday. It took her more than an hour during her first try about six months ago, but now she can wear it for only a few seconds. With her eye vision of 375 and 270 for right and left eye respectively, I think that a lasik is necessary when she reaches the age of twenties or when a doctor advised her so. We just bought a pair of new soft contacts from an eye specialist clinic. It was her third purchase and it will expire in two months. I reminded her to wear glasses as an alternative but she kept insisting the many pros of wearing the contacts. However she is willing to use julbo sunglasses on summer or when our out of town vacation pushes through.
Here are some few tips from her doctor on how to take care of contact lens.
Always wash your hand with unscented soap. Your hands should be free from contaminants when putting on the contact lenses. When you buy a solution, always check if it is FDA approved and check the quality. Clean your contact lens before putting inside a lens case. Check the expiry date of the solution and discard the expired and unused solution beyond expiry date.
Make sure your contact lens case is clean and free from dust. Keep it sealed all the time. Ask your doctor or an eye specialist for more tips of taking care of contact lens.
