Why a Contact Lens Exam Is Essential

When people decide to go with contacts contact lenses as their treatment option of choice for refractive vision errors, they must first receive a contact lens exam. For those who don't know, contact lens exams are used to make sure that someone is able to wear contacts. During a contact lens exam, an eye doctor takes a close look at the shape and structure of someone's eyes. The shape and structure of a person's eyes are important for making sure typical contact lenses will fit. There are some situations where someone might not be able to wear standard lenses. In this case, there are alternatives available. However, some of them might need to be made in a customized manner. All of this is going to be discussed with a person before a final decision is made.

Taking Care of Contacts

Once someone has received his or her contacts, it is important to take care of them. There are a few important points to keep in mind. First, make sure to take out the contacts every night. If the contacts are kept in, this can lead to serious eye problems. Every night, make sure to place your in fresh saline. Fresh saline is sterile. The goal is to keep your contacts clean. Finally, remember to change the contact lenses as prescribed. Some contacts might need to be changed every two weeks. Other contacts might need to be changed every day. Listen to the instructions from your eye doctor and change your lenses on time. These are a few of the most important points to remember.
