True story: "I was blinded by my contact lens" 4/20/2017

True Story: "I was blinded by my contact lens"

If you or anyone you know uses or is thinking of using contact lenses, it is important for you to know about the following true story.

Few know that contact lenses can pose a risk to visual health when they are not used properly and many users of contact lenses still use them incorrectly. Something as simple as handling contact lenses with wet fingers can bring serious consequences to your visual health.

Before you start using contact lenses, we advise you to get in contact with an ophthalmologist subspecialized in Cornea (which is the anterior and transparent part of the eye where the lens is placed) so that you can follow up with a series of tests, where the general status of your eye will be evaluated first, to see if you are a good candidate to use contact lenses since many problems can be resolved just by having a good diagnosis.

Using contact lenses comes with great responsibility because these devices touch directly our most precious senses, the human eye.

That's why it is important for you to know about the alternatives to contact lenses that we have thanks to our current technology. Safer options with better visual results such as refractive surgery (IntraLASIK or PRK) could be a better option for you.

At CODET Vision Institute, we have more than 30 years of experience studying the cornea and recommending patients the safest option with the best long-term results for the patient to improve their quality of life.
