Did You Know Poorly Fit Contacts Can Harm Your Eyes?
It is important to remember that contact lenses are prescription medical devices. Various brands are designed and manufactured differently. The selection of a particular contact lens needs to be based on your vision problems, prescription, eye health, comfort requirements, lifestyle, age and physiological factors like tear flow. We'll discuss the different lens types with you and advise you about the lens choices that are best for your eyes. Contact lenses are manufactured in a number of different plastics and some work better on certain patients than others. Because everyone's eyes and vision needs are different, contact lenses are available with varying schedules for removal and replacement. We'll teach you how to properly clean and wear your new contact lenses to maximize vision and minimize potential risks.
At Advanced Eyecare of Chino we make sure that vision correction not only helps you see better, but also helps you feel better. Contact lenses aren't right for everyone, but they may be right for you.
