Are online Korean color contact lenses safe to wear?

Are they safe to wear?

Clear (non color) contact lenses should always be your first priority. (more…)

Contact Lenses and Sports

Contact Lenses and Sports

Contact lenses offer considerable advantages over spectacles for sport. Advantages over spectacles are larger field of view and unaffected by bad weather. With contact sports, both player and opponents are safer with no spectacle frame.

Stability is the prime consideration with sport. Wearing soft contact lenses will give virtually no risk of loss from the eye, even with contact sports and able to give consistent vision despite rapid eye movements. For serious sporting use where optimum acuity is required, toric soft contact lenses are often preferable, even to correct a small degree of astigmatism. The main disadvantage is lens dehydration.

Specific application;

Swimming

Contact lenses are not recommended for swimming unless well-fitted goggles are worn.  Soft contact lenses, if used carefully, have been worn fairly successfully. Some patients are very sensitive to chlorine absorbed by the lenses and may show conjunctival injection after several hours after exposure. This can even occur when lenses have been removed during swimming, but replaced before the chlorine has been eliminated from the eyes.

It should also be remember that swimming pools are a frequent source of ocular infection, and micro-organisms such as Acanthamoeba may be unaffected by chlorine disinfection.

Diving

Good results have been obtained with various water content soft lenses when used for scuba diving, with little risk of displacement. Air bubbles tend to form beneath lenses at depths of about 150ft (45m).

Skiing

Most forms of contact lens prove very successful for skiing. It is essential to use either goggles or large sunglasses to give protection from wind and cold and prevent soft lens dehydration.

Climbing at high altitude

High oxygen transmissibility soft lenses should be used because of the reduced level of oxygen in the atmosphere at high altitude. Extended wear may be well preferred to avoid cold weather difficulties with both handling and solutions.

Soft Contact Lens Fitting

Soft contact lens fitting characteristics are essential for a correctly fitting contact lens to give complete corneal coverage with proper centration to avoid the risk of contact lens complication. Soft contact lens fitting can be assessed in relation to lens movement with: (more…)

Dry Eye

Dry eye should be classified into 2 categories; ‘true’ dry eye and ‘marginal’ dry eye.


‘True’ dry eye is the poor tear quality in most conditions or environments.  Most dryness symptoms and signs exist without contact lens wear.

‘Marginal’ dry eye is insufficient tears in certain conditions. For example during contact lens wear, dry environments such as air (more…)

Eye dryness

Eye dryness is the most frequently reported symptom with contact lens wear and the most common cause of contact lens intolerance. Occasional dryness is also commonly reported by spectacle wearers but is less than in contact lenses.

Contact lens wear decreases the stability of the normal tear film, resulting in faster tear drying time: (more…)

Soft contact lenses deposits

Picture above; soft contact lenses deposits – taken with slit lamp after patient wore the contact lenses for 2 weeks

Deposits originate from tear film components (as tears evaporate or by chemical attraction). lens handling, cosmetics and the external enviroment. Problems associated with deposits include discomfort (mechanical effects), dryness and fluctuating vision (decreased lens surface wetting). Deposits also contribute to the development of inflammatory responses, and have been associated with infection.

The main types of deposits on soft contact lenses are protein and lipid. Both invariably form on all soft contact lenses, usually in combination, can be are visible on soft contact lenses within minutes of insertion. Deposition is affected by individual variation, lens types, wear mode, care systems and the wearing enviroment.

When not associated with inflammation, significant deposition reduces wear time and satisfaction by: (more…)
