Taking proper care of your contact lenses is essential for maintaining good eye health and vision clarity. Infection is the primary risk of neglecting contact lens care, followed by damage to your contacts that make them unwearable. Daily disposable contacts (single wear) present the least infection risk simply because you don't need to clean them and the lenses are fresh and sterile with each use. Just put them in your eyes in the morning and throw them away at night. If you aren't sure what kind of contacts you should get, your Maple Grove optometrist can help you choose the type of contacts lenses right for you.
Your Medina optometrist sees higher than normal incidences of keratitis and conjunctivitis in contact lens wearers who do not properly care for their contacts. Keratitis is an infection or inflammation of your cornea and conjunctivitis (pink eye) is an infection of your eye's sclera (white part). Signs of infection include itchiness, tearing, discharge and blurry vision.
