Contact Lens Instructions for New Wearers
Present day contacts fall under two categories: soft lenses which are produced from water-containing plastics, and GP or “oxygen permeable” rigid contact lenses.
Contact lenses can also be indexed by wearing schedule. Every day wear contacts have to be taken out, cleaned and stored every night, while extended wear contacts are manufactured from components that are safe for overnight wear. Occasionally “continuous wear” is utilized for a type of extended wear lens that may be worn for about Thirty days.
Contact lenses may also be described by substitution interval – which is, how frequently you dispose of the contacts and substitute them with a fresh pair.
Every day throw away contacts are discarded nightly and for that reason require no care, cleaning or lens case. Some other typical replacement time periods are weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or quarterly; any of those contacts may be called “disposable.” Conventional, non-disposable lenses are often replaced annually, however these lenses are usually restricted to unusual or difficult-to-manufacture prescriptions.
Contact Lens Designs
A variety of contact lens styles are available for various eyesight issues. Spherical contact lenses correct nearsightedness or farsightedness and so are shown by a minus or plus in your prescription. Bifocal contacts resemble multifocal glasses for the reason that they will use different optical zones to fix presbyopia (the age-related, decreased ability see at both near and far distances). Toric contacts correct astigmatism, which may accompany either nearsightedness or farsightedness.
Numerous lens styles are available in colors that will improve or alter your natural eye color. Special-effect contacts can also be found for novelty use and therefore are utilized extensively in theatrical and filmed productions. Prosthetic contacts are colored contacts that can cosmetically mask eye disfigurement. Many contacts offer an embedded UV inhibitor as well.
Which Is the Right Contacts for You?
Your contacts must do 3 things:
- Correctly fit your cornea.
- Provide you with clear vision.
- Supply any “extra” rewards you would like (or will need) like color, the convenience of every day disposal.
Contacts are available in thousands of combinations of size, shape and power. This is exactly why contacts are a prescription item and should be fitted by a skilled specialist. This assures comfortable fit and excellent eyesight.
Our team will assess your eyes to determine which contacts are best for you. We will take into account your specific needs like dry eyes, a wish for a color change, or even the need for overnight lenses to find the perfect contact lens solution for you.
Keratoconus is a condition that causes decreased vision due to an irregularity of the cornea. A normal cornea typically has a smooth round shape. In keratoconus, the cornea forms a cone shape rendering traditional glasses or contacts inferior to more advanced methods. Dr. Margolis is able to discuss various contacts lens or surgical options that may be appropriate for patients with keratoconus.
The cause of keratoconus in not known. However, it has been shown that keratoconus most likely has a genetic component existing from birth. It is believed to involve a problem with the collagen of the cornea. Collagen is the cell type that delivers the cornea its strength and offers its shape. When the collagen is compromised, like in keratoconus, the cornea losses its shape and becomes irregular and conical.
Some experts believe that eye allergies and eye rubbing may act to accelerate the process of keratoconus.
For several years, the only solution for keratoconus was corneal transplantation. As contact lens technologies expand and the need for additional alternatives arise, the most common solution for keratoconus has become specialty contact lenses. Visit our office to discuss the various treatment options available today.
These Modern Technologies may Delay or Stop the Requirement of Corneal Transplantation
Specialty contact lenses offer visual correction and corneal stability for conditions like keratoconus. Options include soft, rigid, hybrid and scleral contact lenses. Ask Dr. Margolis about your contact lens options at your next appointment.
High-frequency radio energy (conductive keratoplasty) can alter the form of the cornea so contacts may be more effective.
Corneal implants known as intracorneal ring segments can be placed in order to smooth the cone shape of the cornea and make it more of a normal round shape.
Corneal cross-linking is a technique in the trial phases of approval and has shown promise in increasing and strengthening the collagen bonds of the cornea. This will allow the cornea to maintain its structure and could potential halt the condition or keep it from progressing.
