Contact Lens Health Week: Get your eyes checked

August 22, 2023


When was your last contact lens appointment?

Here’s why you should have a regular contact lens appointment:

  1. Preserve Your Eye Health: Contact lenses are in direct contact with your eyes, and any issues with them can impact your eye health. Regular checkups can detect early signs of potential problems like infections, dryness, or allergies, preventing more severe issues down the road.
  2. Optimal Vision: Over time, your eyes may change, and your contact lens prescription may need adjustment. Regular checkups ensure that your lenses are providing you with the clearest vision possible, minimizing the risk of discomfort or blurred vision.
  3. Lens Condition: Contact lenses can accumulate deposits or scratches, affecting their quality and comfort. During a checkup, your eye care professional can assess the condition of your lenses and recommend replacements if needed, ensuring your vision remains crisp and clear.
  4. Comfort and Convenience: An ill-fitting or damaged lens can cause discomfort and irritation. Regular checkups help identify such issues early on, ensuring that you continue to enjoy the comfort and convenience that contact lenses offer.
  5. Stay Informed: Eye care professionals can educate you about proper lens care and hygiene, reducing the risk of eye infections or other complications. They can also update you on the latest advancements in contact lens technology.

In conclusion, regular checkups are not just for your eyes; they’re for your overall well-being.

They help maintain your eye health, optimize your vision, and ensure that you can continue to enjoy the benefits of contact lenses comfortably and safely.
