Caring For Contact Lenses

"The first contact lenses were fitted in the late 1880’s, which is over 100 years ago. Since then people of all ages, having different types of vision problems have made the decision to wear contact lenses instead of glasses, largely due to the many advantages of contact lenses.

Contact lenses can be divided into 2 main types - soft and rigid gas permeable. The types of contact lenses available are made of different materials and they each require specific care. Although contact lenses have many advantages over glasses, they do require more care. An important consideration when selecting the type of contact lens is how much time you are willing to devote to their care. You could risk an eye infection as a result of lack of attention to lens hygiene. However, with proper care and use, the chances of developing eye problems can be minimized if not eliminated."
