Progressive Eyecare offers a wide range of high-quality vision correction options, including contact lenses. Wearing contacts offers enhanced visual clarity, comfort, and convenience. Despite these great benefits, some people are still hesitant to give them a try, and this is largely due to misconceptions about how contacts work. Read on as your expert eye doctor separates myth from reality:
Myth 1: You Need to Be a Certain Age to Wear Contacts
There is actually no required age when it comes to wearing contact lenses. The most important thing is that you understand how to handle and care for your contacts. Rest assured we’ll give you step-by-step instructions on how to do so.
Myth 2: Contact Lenses Are High-Maintenance
Contacts are actually one of the most convenient, low maintenance forms of corrective eyewear available. While it may take a bit of practice to get the hang of how to insert them, you’ll get the hang of it very quickly. In addition to giving detailed instructions on how to use your contacts, your reliable optometrist will prescribe you a pair that fits your lifestyle. Daily contact lenses, for example, are intended to be used only once so that you can dispose them at the end of your day.
Myth 3: Contact Lenses Cause Eye Infections
Contact lens-related infections are only a risk if you fail to observe proper hygiene when handling your lenses. This is why we’ll make sure that you fully understand how to use and clean them during your clinic visit.
Myth 4: Contact Lenses Are Uncomfortable
Your eyes may need a brief adjustment period to get used to the feeling of contacts. That said, most people adapt quite quickly and find that contacts are a very comfortable corrective eyewear option.
