THURSDAY, April 17, 2014 (HealthDay News) Bacteria that can cause serious eye infections are able to survive longer in contact lens cleaning solution than previously known, a new study finds. Researchers looked at different strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which can cause microbial keratitis. The thing is, this type of stuff is everywhere: Bacteria can be found in water, while viruses can be transmitted from an infected person or blister, for example. “Contact lenses can create an. Among the bad habits that the CDC warns of are putting 99% of contact lens wearers at risk of eye infection: Rinsing them in tap water: This just isn’t clean enough.

Always remember to wash your hands thoroughly before handling your lenses. Use a freshly poured, prescribed lens solution whenever you clean or store your contact lenses. Avoid using water and other solvents as they can damage the material. Rub the lenses gently between your fingers to remove surface build up and other debris.

Don’t sleep in your contact lenses unless your eye doctor has prescribed special lenses that are okay to sleep in. Sleeping in unsafe lenses prevents your eye from “breathing,” and can lead to infections and other eye damage. Keep water away from your contacts and eyes. Remove the contact from the lens case with your index finger.

Remember to be gentle. Contacts can tear easily. Make sure the contact is not inside-out. If the edges are flaring outwards, it’s inside-out.

Gently flip the lens into the correct position. Lubricate the lens with a drop of lens solution or eye drops. Dry eyes often go hand-in-hand with regular contact lens use, but if it gets bad, it can lead to dry eye syndrome.

This happens a lot with lenses because they can reduce the amount of tears your. Rinse the lens with contact-lens solution. If you drop a lens, rinse it with solution again before trying to put it in your eye. Put the contact lens on the tip of either the index finger or middle finger of the hand you write with. Be sure to look for torn or damaged spots on the lens.

Contact lens wearers shouldn’t dive in without tight, protective goggles — or they risk inviting lagoon creatures into their eyes. 2. Cosmetics: Makeup and potentially bacteria in a cosmetics container can transfer to contacts when it seeps into one’s tears. If you do decide to try extended wear contact lenses, eye doctors recommend that you get your eyes checked every 6 months. That way they can closely monitor your eye health.

Accommodating Vision Problems. Depending on the type of vision problems you have, you may also need contact lenses that accommodate certain conditions. Nearsightedness.

Wearing contact lenses in normal-humidity conditions (40%) produces a greater evaporation than that experienced by non–contact lens wearers in low humidity (30%).129 This could explain the higher prevalence of dry eye complaints among contact lens wearers than amongst non–lens wearers.

  • Does anyone else see better with glasses than contacts? I have astigmatism and also allergies idk if that has any role in why I hate contacts

  • Every pair of contacts lenses did this to my eyes after 45 minutes of wearing them, i’d walk around for at least a week looking stoned af

  • It happnened to me after 19 years of wearing contacts/ But it is pseudomonas and had that was because of overnight sleeping with lenses.

  • Tried swimming with contacts once… when I came up from under the water everything looked fuzzy and the contacts were like stuck to my eyes and they started burning

  • I don’t know what to do anymore. Literally everything I feel I’m doing correctly is stated otherwise by The Doctors. I should stop watching this show before I live in fear.

  • Glasses force you to turn your head to look from side to side where as contacts allow you to look without turning your head. Imagine having to wear a neck brace, you would have to turn your entire body because you can’t move your head. This obstructs your vision and can cause you to fall or trip. Not fun.

  • U have to be dumb as fuck to put a contact in ur mouth or in water.


    Christ, this wouldn’t even occur to me

  • Having contact lenses is good because they don’t have to deal with people who will hold the lenses of the glasses and hand it to you when you need it

  • my father left eye infected with fungal infection i treated in aiims rp eye centre but doctor fails in treatment. and finally he says vision not come again. then i realized that medical science only drama nothing else

  • My eye doctor said that I can use a shower with my contacts in. With the pool, he said, that if I didn’t want to swim and just wade around I could wear them but if I wanted to swim I could either wear goggles or take them out.

  • haha i was wondering which is better but i don’t know because I have normal vision and it came true on my birthday another question how did it feel wearing both glasses and contacts

  • I think contact lenses are better for people who wear em get like not comfortable in the nose, like me, probably are better than glasses while knowing the risks

  • i decided to purchase some herbal medication from Dr.ozuka to help me get rid of my herpes virus after i used the medication for few weeks i became negative

  • Dude keratitis is the worst thing ever I was deadass crying the entire day and if went out side I had to buy sunglasses on be even the smallest bit of light would burn my cornea

  • I prefer contacts because it makes me feel more confident with how I look, and also makes daily activities sooo much more convenient. Whenever I put on my glasses I look like a nerd and it contrasts so much with my personality �� and I just can’t pull them off. Even thought glasses are cheaper and more convenient in a way, I’d still choose contact lenses over them anytime

  • I’ve been a driver for half a year and I can safely say lenses are much more practical and safe for driving. Plus, no fogging, exercising, etc

  • I wear contacts. Before I bought them, I consulted and researched. Wearing contacts is a responsibility. It involves your eyes, your sight.

    So why would anyone clean their contact lenses with water or their mouth? I was really shocked with this video, I had to scroll to read comments. Hahahah

  • Please someone help me I think I have exchanged my contacts side’s I don’t know wtf to do
    Am I the only one who has done this shit please someone help me

  • I have natural very wet eyes so I never use eye drops before. Also, everyone must aware that wearing contacts requires extra care so if you got infection from it, it’s your fault or it’s just the lense you bought is not a good quality

  • I personally prefer my glasses, I just recently chanced them to blue after 10 years of wearing just black and it just makes me happy! I feel like I look better with my glasses then without them.
    I changed to big or “oversize” glasses since then have more space for the glass itself then smaller ones which I personally like more!
    But contacts can come in handy and if I need to I’ll use them, like when I was in a dance in school it was better to use my contacts then my glasses which sometimes slide of my sweaty face; but the time I used my contacts I did like them! And they are really handy, it all depends on what you personally like, so it’s really good to rely both and see!

  • I personally think people look so much better in glasses half the time. You just need to find the right frame that suits you, don’t just pick one out randomly. (This is for people who think glasses make you look ugly or like a nerd or something.)

  • I am an eyeglass wearer for the past 10 years. I really dislike the use of them. I can not see anything near,far,med range….I say this because I don’t know what my eyesight is “classified” as. My doctor has said I am in a position to get contacts and I can use readers up close. My long winded question is: bifocal contacts??? Such a thing?

  • I prefer contacts right now mainly because my glasses are an old prescription and it makes me dizzy because of that. (On my old prescription each eye was different, now they’re the same)

  • I want to get contacts because I plan on doing high school sports this year and I just wanted to know if it was a good idea, ima freshman btw

  • I have an allergy in my eyes since am 1 year old and I’m wearing glasses for 2 years and sometimes i feel very dizzy wearing them for long time or not wearing them
    It doesn’t matter

  • I’m 13 and I really want to wear contact lenses. I know I’d feel a lot more confident without glasses bc I hate the way they look on me. My dad doesn’t want me to have them because it will supposedly make my eyes go all round and give me infections. I understand the risk of infection if they’re not properly cleaned, but I’m not sure about the first part. How can I convince him to let me have them?

  • My wife, who is an OD in CA, wears glasses while working at her hospital and clinics when she is not working in a high risk area. A Japanese study shows smaller particles can stay in air much longer.

  • I have astigmatism, and probably see better with glasses. That said, I prefer contact lenses. I will gladly give up a little clarity for the freedom contact lenses give me. I, like you, love to wear my own sunglasses! ��

  • i have both but my contacts taker years to arrive. I ordered one 3 months ago and still haven’t received cs my eye sight is complicated

  • No you are wrong. Contact lenses are made of silicon. Not plastic. If you use contact lenses in proper way you will be fine. There’s nothing wrong with contact lenses. But the wrong thing is habits. If anyone using contact lenses harm eyes, thats because of that person’s bad usage not because of the contact lense. You must choose correct type of lenses and a good brand.
