Are Contacts Right for You?
Millions of people choose to wear contact lenses. However, they are not for everyone. You might not be able to wear them for the following reasons:
- You get a lot of eye infections.
- You have severe allergies or dry eyes that are hard to treat.
- You work or live where it is very dusty.
- You are not able to properly care for your contact lenses.
Your cornea and tear film must be healthy for you to be comfortable and see clearly with contact lenses.
To safely wear contact lenses, you must be committed to caring for them properly and replacing them when needed. Talk with your ophthalmologist or other eye care professional to discuss your vision needs and expectations. They can help you decide if contacts are a good option for you.
