Often wear contact lenses, must guard against suffering from dry eyes
Xerophthalmia, also known as keratoconjunctiva, is an eye condition caused by a tear secretion disorder.The main symptom of dry eye syndrome is dry eyes, but also may be accompanied by foreign body feeling, burning pain, sticky secretions and other eye discomfort.Mild xerophthalmia can affect daily life to some extent, while severe xerophthalmia can cause keratopathy, which can affect vision.
Wearing contact lenses too often may cause dry eyes.Normally, the surface of a person's eye is covered with tears, and after wearing contact lenses, both front and back lenses need to be covered with tears, which is equivalent to increasing the demand for tears, making the incidence of dry eye disease greatly increased.If wearers choose contact lenses with too much water content, or wear them every day for too long, it will aggravate the dry eyes, may also cause foreign body feeling, blurred vision and so on.In the short term various uncomfortable symptoms may not be so obvious, but if you do not pay attention to eye care, will inevitably suffer from dry eyes.
However, this is not to say that wearing contact lenses will necessarily cause dry eyes.The most common causes of xerophthalmia are congenital lacrimal glands, reduced lacrimal function in old age, or inflammation of the lacrimal glands caused by an autoimmune disease.In order to eliminate these factors, it is recommended to do an eye examination before choosing contact lenses, so as not to aggravate the disease.
If you want to use contact lenses for a long time, you must beware of getting dry eyes.To take the correct method of operation, appropriate control of wearing time, and combined with scientific and standardized care, but also to ensure adequate sleep and a balanced diet.When using the eye for a long time, pay attention to voluntary blinking rest to promote tear circulation
