I can’t get my contacts in! Is it normal to struggle in the beginning?
Yes! Try not to get too frustrated if this process takes a really long time. Getting used to contacts varies from patient to patient but almost everyone finds them to be comfortable after a short while. You’ll eventually get used to contacts and the process of putting them in. We provide classes at our clinic to help you learn this technique. If you are interested in one of these classes please call our office and we will be happy to help.
How do I keep my contacts clean?
A proper case and good contact lens solution are essential. Your contacts will accumulate dirt and grime while you wear them. They need to be cleaned and re-hydrated at least daily by gently rubbing your contact lens between your fingers using a generous amount of your solution. New solution needs to be used every night in your case, and the case should be rinsed with water in the morning and allowed to air dry until it is used again that night.
Can anyone wear contacts instead of glasses?
Not everyone who wears glasses can safely wear contact lenses. Most people can get contact lenses, but a current prescription from an optometrist is both required and critical for your eye health. Request an appointment today for contact lenses.
Are contacts better than glasses?
This is mostly a matter of opinion. Most people wear contacts for their convenience. One of our eye doctors can get you into a trial pair of contact lenses so that you can try them out. However, you do need a contact lens specific eye exam to get you into the right pair. Contact us today to get your trial pair of contacts.
