Myths about wearing contact lenses
As the saying goes, the eyes are the windows of the soul. Contact lenses can add points to the eyes and leave a good impression on others, but contact lenses are not worn casually. In the process of actual use, it is easy to walk into the misunderstanding and cause damage to the eyes. Come take a look at these common misunderstandings, are you successful?
Misunderstanding one, wear it over time. Different types of contact lenses are clearly marked on the packaging with a life cycle, and must be replaced according to the instructions. However, in actual use, many wearers do not observe this. Some of them were afraid of waste, some forgot, and some were too confusing to unpack the lenses at the same time, but in either case, wearing expired contact lenses would irritate the eyes and may cause infection.
Myth #2: Keep adding water. Wearing contact lenses will inevitably bring about the problem of dry eyes. Many wearers carry eye drops with them in order to replenish their eyes with moisture at any time, but they will drop a few drops from time to time, but this does not really solve the problem. Although eye lotion can be used when wearing contact lenses, it is easy to produce dependence, and long-term use will affect the normal tear secretion function.
Misunderstanding three, only clean the lens and ignore the double box. Maintaining the cleanliness of the lenses is very important for the health of the eyes, but the removed lenses should be kept in the double box for a long time. If the double boxes are not cleaned at the same time, the lenses will still be exposed to bacteria. Every time you wash the lens, not only must you discard the old care solution, but also clean the double box by the way, and then pour in the new care solution.
When you wear contact lenses, you must not only pay attention to the benefits of contact lenses, and ignore the understanding of how to use them, otherwise you will probably pay a painful price. The three misunderstandings introduced in this article are all common mistakes made by wearers, everyone must take it as a warning.
