Indeed, wearing contact lenses will have the risk (if you do not heed the safe use rules). The risk that I mean includes infection with bacteria, fungi, or other microbes. Therefore, so that the use of contact lenses is safe, then you must follow the rules of use.
According to experts, the use of contact lenses for medical purposes will be safe insofar as the user complies with the usage rules correctly. Here are some things that should be noted by contact lens users:
- Before deciding to use contact lenses, you should consult with an ophthalmologist first. This is important because each indication has certain conditions. For example, not all minus eyes are advised to use contact lenses. Only minus height is recommended to use it.
- Before using or removing the lens contact you should wash your hands thoroughly to avoid infection, because the hands are a source of bacteria.
- Don’t forget to use eye lubricants three to four times a day to avoid dry eyes. What needs to be known when using eye contact lenses is that it cannot lubricate the cornea when it blinks because it is blocked by contact lenses, so the eyes become dry. Dry eyes make the cornea become characterized by the appearance of clinical symptoms such as blurred vision, sore eyes, heat, redness, and wateryness. But not until it causes the retinal nerve to break up. Usually the retinal nerve breaks due to being hit or hit by a blow.
- Indonesia is a tropical country, therefore it is better to use contact lenses to keep on wearing glasses when going out of the house, so as not to be exposed to dust. That way contact lenses won’t get dirty fast.
That’s how to safely use contact lenses. Hopefully there are benefits that you can take from the short article.
