Wearing contact lenses is not always a medical issue. Is it necessary to consult a doctor to use contact lenses no matter what type of contacts you’re going to wear? Not with colored contact lenses.
You can have the convenience of wearing contact lenses and the fun and excitement of wearing colored contact lenses these days.
Is there any difference between contact lenses and colored contacts when it comes to quality? That depends on how they are made. Yes, you should definitely buy quality lenses, but more on that later.
Then is it necessary to consult a doctor to use contact lenses even when you are using quality lenses and caring for them properly. The answer is there is often no need but care is the key.
If you aren’t treating your contact lenses or colored contacts with care, then you are asking for trouble.
It may sound like one of the biggest Durrrhs of the century but if there is anything wrong with a contact lens – here’s the golden tip for you – Don’t Use It!
Why in Beyoncés name would you even put something remotely suss in your eye? If you think you have scratched it or it has torn (even a tiny tear is dangerous), then get rid of the lens.
Not next week, in a few days or tomorrow – we’re talking straight away, immediately, this second. (You got that! That means N-O-W, which is now Darren).
Time for the eye doctor
When is it time to see the eye doctor? Is it necessary to consult a doctor to use contact lenses, when you try them on or to check they are fitting right?
There’s one time when you definitely need to see a doctor and that’s if something goes wrong with your eyes. Even if it isn’t because of the contact lenses themselves, you need to get help.
Are eye infections dangerous? Yes and it’s another Durrrh kind of question.
The issue of eye infections or trouble with your vision is definitely a matter for a doctor to investigate. And you should (yes, should!) make a visit to the doctor as soon as you can. If the matter is serious, then it could be a trip straight to the hospital.
Your eyes and your vision are way too important to take any chance with. Remember that your eyes are very sensitive and you need to look after them.
Some issues can turn from a minor problem into a serious issue very quickly.
There’s no point thinking you are being brave’ or you are ‘just too busy and things will sort themselves out’. Just get yourself checked and get the problem fixed. It doesn’t hurt to see a doctor to give you the all clear and tell you there is nothing serious to worry about. It does hurt to have to put up with the pain of stinging eyes and having to deal with blurred or troubled vision.
Too busy now, are you?
Take a break from wearing your contact lenses or colored contacts until you get your eye problem fixed, otherwise you could be actually making the whole thing worse.
Contact lenses for correcting vision
There’s a clear difference when it comes to wearing colored contacts and wearing contact lenses to improve your vision.
Contacts that correct your vision are a medical matter.
Can you buy just any lenses or is it necessary to consult a doctor to use contact lenses?
Before you choose to wear contact lenses, you need to have a thorough eye examination from an experienced professional. It’s no good taking advice from a friend who wears contacts and going with their ‘expert advice’.
A fully trained and experienced professional can help you with the fitting of the contact lenses and give you instructions on how to put them in, take them out and care for them properly.
It’s not just a one-off visit either. You need to remember that the state of your eyesight can and probably will change which means you may need to update your prescription. That’s why regular check-ups every year are recommended.
Quality contacts all the way
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. Quality matters and that’s especially true when it comes to contact lenses and colored contact lenses.
Most doctors will tell you that you shouldn’t wear contact lenses of any kind for more than 8 hours. You shouldn’t sleep or nap with your contacts in either. There are special contact lenses that give you extended wear so you can wear them for longer periods. Even then you need to be super careful with how you look after them and stay on the lookout for any changes in your eyes.
Again, one sign of trouble and get your eyes checked, pronto!
The other factor is the quality of the lenses.
If you buy cheap and nasty contact lenses, then you are opening the door to danger. Don’t be part of a doorknob and put just any crap in your eyes. They’re your eyes and pretty damn important to you, like for seeing and stuff (get that Mel? That whatevs attitude could make you blind one day and no, not for dating).
Always buy quality contact lenses whatever type you are looking to get. It means you are looking out for yourself.
