Wearing contact lenses is a useful and easy alternative to wearing eyeglasses everyday. Glasses can interfere with many everyday activities by obstructing your vision. This can become a problem while playing sports, or driving, for example. Wearing contact lenses allows you to see clearly without the bulk and hassle that glasses can create. At 2020 Vision Place, the Plantation optical store you can trust, we can help you to decide if contacts are the right option for you; and can easily order them and have them ready for you in no time.
Wearing contact lenses requires both cautiousness and cleanliness. Should you decide that contact lenses are an option you would like to pursue, the licensed optometrist Dr. Ralph Bourjolly at our Plantation optical store will fit the lenses to your eyes and show you how you will put them in everyday. Though it may feel strange at first, putting your contacts in will become easier each time you do it. It is important that you thoroughly wash your hands (wash with soap and water – do not use hand sanitizer) before putting your contacts in to avoid irritating your eyes or damaging the lens with foreign particles. It is also crucial that you inspect the lens to make sure it is in tact, as it can be painful and harmful to your eye if you put in a ripped or damaged lens. If you notice any debris on the lens, rinse it well with contact lens solution before inserting it into your eye. If you feel any pain or discomfort after putting your lenses in, take them out right away and consult with our Plantation optometrists and vision specialists. Our helpful staff at 2020 Vision Place can assist you if you struggle with putting your contacts in. When you take your lenses out, be sure to store them in a case filled with contact solution (never tap water!).
The process of inserting and removing your contact lenses may take a little practice at first, but after a few wears putting your contacts in will become second nature. So stop hiding behind those glasses, and go for the more natural look that helps you to see the clearest: contact lenses. Our professionals at 2020 Vision Place, the premier Plantation optical store, are waiting to assist you with all of your contact lens needs.
