Contact Lenses have changed millions of peoples lives for the better. They are simple, convenient to use and many wearers feel they offer better and more natural all-round vision than glasses. They can even help people achieve life-long dreams, such as sporting athletes and actors on TV or film.
If looked after properly Contact Lenses are safe. Most wearers won't ever experience problems, however, if Contact Lenses are not treated with the love and respect they need there is a small risk of developing potentially serious problems and infections. In most cases these infections can be treated fairly easily but will require you not to wear your lenses for a short period of time. However, in rare cases a much more serious infection called Acanthameoba Keratitis can cause lasting damage with life changing consequences.
If you have concerns or issues with your Contact Lenses seek advice from your optician straight away.
