Vision correction with contact lenses

Contact Lenses are the perfect solution for people with vision problems who do not wish to have surgery and do not like the feel and visual appearance of eyeglasses. Millions of people wear these little disk that fits right on your eye and gives you crisp, clear vision without changing your appearance. However, there are color contact lenses and specialty contacts that can change your appearance by giving your eyes a new color or different look. The majority of people are able to wear contacts. However, there are a few who are not able to due to high amounts of eye infections, extra sensitive eyes, and other reasons that an eye practitioner can explain. No matter what you chose, you are bound to have some fun with contacts.

The first step in getting contacts is to visit your eye care professional. They will measure your eyes and find the right contact to fit properly and comfortably. For people new to contact lenses and are afraid of the thought of touching your eyes, your optometrist can even help you get used to placing the contact lenses in and taking them out. After some time even the most sensitive people will be able to do this with ease. Your optometrist will also advise you on the different types of contact lenses and how to properly take care of them and your eyes.

One of the first things you will learn is if the contact lens is flipped inside out or not. You can tell by when you wear contact lenses inside out because there is a slight discomfort because the lenses do not fit properly onto your eyes. Another way to tell without even placing them in your eyes is to hold the bottom curve of the lens on one finger. If you have a perfect half circle without any edges sticking out then the contacts are fine. If it is a half circle shape with the edges sticking out, then the contact lens is flipped inside out.
