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.
