Can contact lenses be worn for a long time?
For myopia patients, the convenience and comfortable experience of contact lenses make it difficult for them to give up, but they often hear about the various "hazards" of long-term contact lenses. So, can contact lenses be used for a long time?
Contact lenses belong to the third category of medical equipment. As long as they are worn and taken care of in strict accordance with the instructions, the lenses will not cause damage to the eyes, so of course they can be worn for a long time. Moreover, compared with the bulky and inconvenience of frame glasses, contact lenses will not deform the visual field, and can always follow the eyeball to rotate synchronously, which is very helpful to ensure the stability of vision.
However, there are many precautions to wear contact lenses safely. The most important thing for long-term use of contact lenses is to control the wearing time. If they are worn continuously, it is likely to put a lot of pressure on the cornea, which will cause the local resistance to become worse, allowing bacteria or viruses to take advantage of. You can wear contact lenses intermittently to give your eyes plenty of rest and recovery time.
Many beauty lovers like to wear colored contact lenses, which can indeed make the eyes bigger and more beautiful, and even change a person's temperament. However, color contact lenses need to add a colored layer, so the lenses are relatively thicker, and the air permeability is obviously not as good as transparent lenses. It is best not to wear them for a long time.
The shorter the use period, the healthier the contact lens is already a recognized fact. Wearing contact lenses, especially long-term wearing contact lenses, should choose the short-period type as much as possible. Frequent use of lenses will produce more protein deposits, and the deposits cannot be completely removed during the care process. Traditional lenses will inevitably become "dirty" as they are used.
In short, under the premise of ensuring standardized use, contact lenses can be worn for a long time, but we must always be alert to the appearance of various uncomfortable symptoms and seek medical treatment in time.
