Living with perfect vision can feel like you live a perfect life until one day you realize you can’t see the eye chart as well as you once could. If you have noticed that your vision has gotten increasingly worse, come into Wilkinson Eye Center for an eye exam. With simple glasses or contact lenses, we should be able to help restore your vision. If you have never worn contact lenses, they can be a bit uncomfortable at first. So, how can you ensure that your eyes remained comfortable? Let’s take a closer look at three tips.
Get Professionally Fitted
It can be tempting to get online and buy your contact lenses from an online retailer at discount prices, but they may not fit well; especially if you’re trying a new brand. When you come into Wilkinson Eye Center for a contact lens fitting, we will not only ensure that they feel comfortable, but we will look at your eyes to make sure the contacts are fitting well.
Use Eye Drops
If you have noticed that your eyes feel exceptionally dry and irritated after you put your lenses in, then try putting eye drops in both before you put your lenses in and throughout the day. Eye drops will act as an additional lubricant to coat your eyes and keep them moisturized.
Wash Them Well
You should be soaking your contacts in a clean solution every day and you should be rinsing them with a clean solution before you put them in as well. Washing your contacts with a simple contact lens solution will help you get rid of any germs and bacteria that may be on them which will help protect your eyes from getting an infection.
