What Are My Contact Lenses Prescriptions?

Do colored contacts interest you?

Do you currently wear prescription eyeglasses, but are considering getting some contact lenses instead?Are disposable lenses better for you than full-eye contact lenses? Here is information on all three options and how to make the right choice.

If you wear eyeglasses, you may wonder if contact lenses would be a better option. While prescription eyeglasses are still considered the standard of eye care, many people are now choosing to wear eyeglasses-and a pair of stylish clip-on sunglasses!-as a fashion statement. You can, of course, still wear eyeglasses if you choose. Just make sure that your glasses have been properly fitted and cleaned, and you’ll have perfectly clear vision all day long. The only downside to wearing prescription eyeglasses is that you’ll need to bring them along every time you leave home, unless you’re at work.

inherited characteristic

As you probably already know, there are two main types of vision problems: near and far away. If you need glasses for nearsightedness, you’ll need to buy bifocal contact lenses; those with one eye in the middle and one near the edge. If you have farsightedness, you’ll need to buy corrective lenses that improve both your near and far sight. Farsightedness and nearsightedness are often caused by the same things: damage to the eye’s delicate muscle structures, which often result from frequent eye rubbing and squinting, or from the shape of the cornea, which can be curved. Rarely, it’s an inherited characteristic.

Since corrective lenses can be very effective at correcting nearsightedness and farsightedness, you should get a comprehensive eye exam before making any plans. It’s possible that your vision problems are so severe that you’d be better off waiting until your eye doctor gives you an official diagnosis. Even then, though, you should be sure to bring along the complete set of necessary prescriptions – not just the obvious lenses for each category. And since it’s quite easy to lose a prescription in your purse or pocket, you should also carry a list of the items that need to be replaced with each prescription, as well as copies of the contact lens inserts, which replace the lenses in your eye with a thin plastic lens.

contact lenses prescriptions current

In order to keep an eye exam and your contact lenses prescriptions current, you should follow some simple steps. First of all, don’t leave home without your glasses prescription and eye patch. It’s always wise to be able to identify your current eye condition by simply looking in a mirror, but in this case, you’ll want to look closely at your iris – the colored part of the eye, which is shaped like a cone. When it begins to bend, it indicates that the delicate muscle tissue inside is being strained. If you don’t recognize the shape of your iris, you should bring it into your physician for an eye examination.

It’s important to know your contact lens’s expiration date. Don’t waste time taking those discounted, over-the-counter contacts beyond their suggested expiration date. The lenses should have stopped absorbing color and moisture when they reached the recommended expiration date, but they will not have stopped changing shape. With continuous use, your eyes will dry and cause the cornea to become wrinkled, which can result in a lack of vision and irritation.
