From Eyeglasses to Contact Lenses

Have them professionally fitted

(HealthDayNews) -- If you're trading in your eyeglasses for contact lenses, make sure each lens is the correct prescription strength and the right fit for your eye, advises Missouri Baptist Hospital-Sullivan.

Even if you can see clearly through them, ill-fitted lenses can cause serious microscopic changes in the delicate tissues at the front of your eye.

When fitting you for contact lenses, your eye-care specialist should:

  • Measure your eyes.
  • Examine them under a high-powered microscope.
  • Train you to insert, remove, and care for your contact lenses.
