Can I wear contact lenses for myopia?
Contact lenses and frame glasses are both tools for vision correction, but obviously contact lenses are more convenient without affecting aesthetics.In use, contact lenses have high requirements for hygienic conditions and eye conditions. Improper handling can easily cause eye infections. So, is it good to wear contact lenses for myopia?
The most worrying problem for myopia patients is that, in addition to the increase in power, the eyeball is deformed.The eyes are deformed. One is because the axis of the eye becomes longer, which makes the eyeballs more prominent.Only proper optics can inhibit the further development of myopia, and wearing contact lenses can change the bad habits of squinting eyes and effectively prevent eye deformation.
For myopia patients, it is still recommended to wear contact lenses, but to avoid wearing too long.Generally, the adaptation period should be controlled within 4 hours, and then gradually increased to avoid corneal edema.Normal wearing should be less than 8 hours, otherwise it will easily lead to corneal hypoxia, which is not conducive to eye health.
People with high myopia are special and may not be suitable for wearing.There are many causes of high myopia, both internal and external, and most are accompanied by retinal pathological changes.Contact lenses can avoid distortion of the field of vision and do not produce prismatic effects, but they need to be evaluated before they can be used without the contraindications of wearing contact lenses. At the same time, they should be reviewed regularly to grasp the fundus situation at any time.Standardized operations and regular eye examinations can help patients with myopia to ensure eye health and safety, so that they can also use contact lenses with confidence.
