Precaution while using Contact Lenses

A contact lens, or simply contact, is a thin lens placed directly on the surface of the eye.
51. Precautions
Infections are rare, but if they occur they should be treated as an emergency. Symptoms of infection are blurry vision, redness, pain, additional tearing with or without a discharge. If this occurs, remove your contact lens and notify us immediately. Put your glasses on if any of the symptoms above occur. Always have a current pair of glasses on hand.
52. Requirements for Wearing Contact Lens
1Expert fitting and comprehensive training for their care. 2Conscientious care by the patient. 3Periodic followup care. 4A complete eye exam prior to your fitting. A prescription is valid for one year per Arkansas law. Eye exams, if needed, are available by appointment at the Jones Eye Institute.
53. Additional Information
In the event you are unsuccessful in wearing contact lens, you may return the lens within 60 days for full refund less the restocking fee. You will be responsible for the fitting fee. If a contact lens is damaged, torn or cracked within the first 3 weeks, replacement will be provided at 50% off standard replacement cost. Specially designed lens are available if needed. Fees will be explained before ordering.
54. Dispose of Your Contact Lenses as Prescribed
After the accumulated wearing period prescribed by your Master Eye Associates professional, your contact lenses should be discarded. By replacing your contact lenses on a regular basis, lens deposits, which can affect vision and cause irritation and discomfort to the eye, have little chance to build up over time as with conventional lens wear. When you discard the lens, you dispose of potential deposit buildup problems. Remember that the first thing that happens before a contact lens related eye infection is that the bacteria accumulate onto the surface of the soft lens and then begin colonization. Clean, sterile, fresh, new lenses minimize this from ever being possible.
55. Remove or Do Not Use Your Contact Lenses if you have
1Reduced vision (visual acuity) with your contacts. 2Pain in or around your eyes that persists for more than one hour. 3Any eye disease, injury or abnormality that affects thecornea,conjunctivaor eyelids. 4Any previously diagnosed condition that makes contact lens wear uncomfortable. Severedry eye. 5Reduced corneal sensitivity (corneal hypoesthesia) 6Any systemic disease that may affect the eye or be exaggerated by wearing contact lenses. 7Allergic reactions of ocular surfaces or surrounding tissues (adnexa) that may be induced or exaggerated by wearing contact lenses or use of contact lens solutions. 8Allergy to any ingredient inthe contact lenssolutions. 9Any active corneal infection. 10If your eyes become red or irritated.
56. Risk of Infection or Injury
1Problems with contact lenses or lens care products could result in serious injury to the eye. Proper use and care of your contact lenses and lens care products, including lens cases, are essential for the safe use of these products.2 Eye problems, including sores or lesions on the cornea (corneal ulcers) can develop very rapidly and lead to serious consequences including loss of vision. 4The risk of an infected sore or lesion on the cornea (ulcerative keratitis) is greater for people who wear extended wear contact lenses than for those who wear daily wear lenses. 5The overall risk of ulcerative keratitis may be reduced by carefully following directions for lens care, including cleaning the lens case. 6The risk of ulcerative keratitis among contact lens users who smoke is greater than among nonsmokers.
57. If you experience eye discomfort
If you experience eye discomfort, excessive tearing, vision changes, redness of the eye or other problems, you should immediately remove your lenses and promptly contact your Master Eye Associates professionals. It is recommended that you see Master Eye Associates routinely as directed or at least annually.
58. UV ABSORBING CONTACT LENSES
UV (ultraviolet light) ABSORBING CONTACT LENSESare not substitutes for protective UV absorbing eyewear such as UV absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV absorbing eyewear. Longterm exposure to UV radiation is one of the risk factors associated with cataracts. Exposure is based on a number of factors such as environmental conditions (altitude, geography, cloud cover) and personal factors (extent and nature of outdoor activities). UV blocking contact lenses help provide protection against harmful UV radiation. However, clinical studies have not been done to demonstrate that wearing UV blocking contact lenses reduces the risk of developing cataracts or other eye disorders.
59. Handling Precautions
DO NOTuse if the sterile blister package is opened or damaged. Before leaving your Master Eye Associates office, you should be able to quickly remove your lenses or you should have someone else available who can remove the lenses for you. If you do not feel that you are qualified to remove your lenses promptly, do not wear them until you can.
60. DO NOTtouch your contact lenses with your fingers
DO NOTtouch your contact lenses with your fingers or hands if they are not completely clean, because tiny lens scratches may occur, causing unclear vision and/or injury to your eye. Contact lenses can cause some problems that do not produce any symptoms that the contact lens wearer may not notice. For this reason, contact lens wearers should have regular checkups with a specialist who prescribes and fits contact lenses.
