A Lens a Day Keeps the Redness Away

A Lens a Day Keeps the Redness Away

Do you ever end up leaving your soft contact lenses in for just a bit too long? Everyone knows that so many things are in their best condition when they are fresh. You won't be surprised to hear that the same idea applies to your contact lenses. There is no shortage of reasons not to leave them in your eyes for any longer than you're supposed to. Although it might be tempting, if you want your eyes to look healthy, follow the replacment regime your optician gives you. In other words, if you're told to use a new pair daily, change them daily, because they can't withstand extended wear.

You might think to yourself, can't I just squeeze two or three more wears out of them? To understand this idea, let's examine protein - not the dietary kind, but the natural protein in your eyes that slowly accumulates on your lenses and creates a mild haze. Blurry vision is just the start.

Eventually these proteins transform and confuse your immune system, which begins to think that the buildup is something foreign, and this can be expressed as inflammation in the eye. And this means that your eyesight suffers. Other factors can also attribute to this, like the build up of dust or pollen on the lens But even when people take great care of their contacts, as time goes on, they become less clear and smooth, just due to regular wear and tear.

So commit to the routine your optometrist has instructed you to. If you replace your lenses when you're told to, you'll never notice the difference that becomes so apparent when you overwear them.
