Before you ever consider wearing Acuvue contact lenses, you should seek professional advice from a professional ophthalmologist and undergo a series of comprehensive optical tests in order to determine the lenses-fitting and the safety of wearing contact lenses instead of eyeglasses. Otherwise, you may soon find out that your eyes begin to swell and that you experience a discomfort due to the fact that you're wearing inappropriate contact lenses. If you decide to buy contact lenses at a cheap price, you should investigate by consulting a specialist whether or not these can cause more serious eye problems later on.
Since the introduction of contact lenses in 1900, a great number of misconceptions have been instated and you may have heard certain rumors yourself that are preventing you from confidently using them. A common misunderstanding is the belief that children and teenagers cannot wear contact lenses, however, the Acuvue contact lenses have no age limit as long as the person wearing them takes on the responsibility of maintaining them in good state. The age myth isn't concerned with the youngsters, but with people over the age of 40 as well, emerged from the fact that people more advanced in age require bifocal lenses. Fortunately, modern technology has made possible the use of bifocal and multifocal contact lenses.
Some of the actual contact lenses problems occur from faulty use or lack of maintenance, such as the corneal ulceration, when the bacteria succeeds in penetrating the surface of your cornea and causing a white spot lookalike infection, as well as from overwear, when the problems caused also resemble an ulceration. The most important step in preventing any of these problems from occurring is a controlled use of your contact lenses, with a nightly removal and cleaning, along with a regular check-up at your ophthalmologist's office, for a close monitoring of the progress and frequent updates.
Since no two people possess identical vision, you may expect an impressionable number of options when you decide to buy contact lenses. As mentioned above, you'll find yourself in the impossibility of choosing from this broad array the one suited to your needs, without the assistance of a specialist. You can find daily-wear lenses, specially conceived for day use solely, monthly or extended-wear lenses that can last even a week without the need for removal or replacement, ultraviolet protection lenses, with a UV filter designed to protect your eyes from sun rays, and last but not least, toric and bifocal lenses destined for people suffering from astigmatism, hyperopia or myopia, and containing the prescriptions for both near and far sight in a single lens.
