Contact lenses are a convenient way to see clearly without the need for eyeglasses. Many people prefer contact lenses, but for some it is not the most ideal option. At the offices of Michael Vathanasaynee, O.D., we offer eye lenses North Las Vegas and eyeglasses for patients who need vision correction.

Most of the choice lies in whether patients prefer to wear them based on their lifestyle. Comfort and convenience are a big factor in wearing eye lenses North Las Vegas. Aesthetics can be a factor as well. Both forms of vision correction are great for enhancing vision, and no one form is better than the other. The pros of eyeglasses are that they’re cheaper than contact lenses, and don’t need as much maintenance. They also cannot cause eye bacteria like contacts do. Glasses are also a good way to make a fashion statement. The cons of glasses are that they are visible and some people don’t like that. They also can get dirty, and need to be cleaned. They can get in the way of playing sports or driving in glare or sunlight. Vision can be obstructed due to the way glasses sit on the nose, or cause headaches and pressure on the bridge of the nose.

The advantages that contact lenses have are that they’re inside the eye, with no obstructions. Those who wear contact eye lenses North Las Vegas can play sports and do outdoor activities easily while wearing contacts. Also, wearers can change the color of their eyes with colored contact lenses. Contacts also provide a wider field of vision. They won’t clash with clothe, either. The cons of contacts are that they can be hard to get used to and can be hard to put inside the eye. It’s a learning curve. Contacts can also cause dry eye syndrome by reducing the amount of oxygen that reaches the eye.

Contact lenses are an excellent alternative over eyeglasses when it comes to vision correction. They do not obstruct your vision or cover up your face, and therefore allow you to see even more clearly. However, wearing contact lenses requires that you are diligent about cleanliness and maintenance in order to avoid infection and other uncomfortable situations. Our Lake Mead eye doctor, Dr. Michael Vathanasaynee, is here to inform you about the best ways to take care of your contact lenses and the possible consequences that can occur if you don’t.

Caring for Your Contact Lenses

First and foremost when it comes to contact lens care is keeping them as clean as possible. Be sure to thoroughly wash your hands, avoiding soaps that are perfumed or oily, and to dry them thoroughly before every time that you handle your lenses or touch your eyes. Using a paper towel is best when it comes to drying your hands so no fabric particles become stuck to your fingers and therefore onto your lenses. It is also best to wait to apply any sort of eye makeup until your lenses are already securely placed in each eye so that it does not get onto your lenses and irritate your eyes. Before you put your lenses in and after you take them out, clean them thoroughly using a solution recommended by our Lake Mead eye doctor. Never use tap water or anything other than designated contact lens solution to clean your lenses because this can lead to serious infection. It is also important to keep your contact lens case clean. You can clean your case using hot tap water or a designated solution, and let it dry before using it again.

Replace your contact lens case every few months to keep your lenses in the cleanest conditions possible. In addition to keeping your lenses clean, make sure that you wear them only as directed by Dr. Vathanasaynee. Wearing your lenses for longer periods of time than they are made for can cause serious irritation and discomfort. Consider switching to disposable lenses if your lenses are frequently irritating your eyes.
