Contact Lenses Q & A

by Paul C. Lovero, OD

How do contact lenses work?

Contact lenses are small prescription lenses you wear on your eye. They’re a discreet way to improve your vision. They float on the film layer on the surface of your eye and correct your vision the same way that eyeglasses do: by altering the rays of light and diverting the focus to your retina.

Contact lenses are custom-made for your prescription.

How can I care for my contact lenses?

Dr. Lovero will instruct you on how to take care of your contact lenses best, so they last as long as possible. The disposable daily lenses require the least care, while conventional soft lenses require the most work.

Always remember to wash and clean your hands with a mild, unscented soap, and rinse them thoroughly before handling your contacts. Dry your hands with a clean, lint-free towel and be sure to use a clean surface. You’re trying to avoid tiny fibers and other irritants from accidentally getting caught between your eye and contact.

Be sure to apply skin creams and makeup only after your contacts are comfortably in place. Some contacts may require the use of a special cleaning solution.

What are the benefits of contact lenses?

If you’re considering whether to opt for contact lenses, there are many factors and benefits to consider. Contacts sit on your eye, so your peripheral vision is entirely unobstructed.

They can also allow you to better take part in activities and sports without worrying about your glasses falling off. There are different color contacts available if you’re looking for a cosmetic change. Contacts make the perfect choice for people who don’t like to wear glasses all the time or don’t like the look of glasses.

Many people find glasses to be uncomfortable and can’t get used to wearing them. It’s best to take your time and explore your options. Trial packets of contact lenses are a great way help you make your decision.
