A contact lens, or contact, is a thin lens placed on the surface of the eyes. Most extended wear contact lenses are made out of silicone hydrogel. The material combines the water-absorbing plastic of soft lenses with silicone.
Adding silicone to the hydrogel plastic creates a lens that stays moist and allows more oxygen through the contact lens into the eye.
Contact lenses are ocular prosthetic devices used by over 150 million people worldwide for different reasons. It can be to correct vision, for cosmetic use, or therapeutic reasons.
This is how contact lenses can save your eyes.
Like eyeglasses, contact lenses help to correct refractive errors. It performs this function by adding or subtracting focusing power to the eye’s cornea and lens.
Contacts provide a safe and effective way to correct vision when used with care and proper supervision. However, most contact lenses should not be worn overnight, as it could increase the risk of eye infection.
Wearing contact lenses in the shower is not advisable, both for the quality of the lenses themselves and for the wearer’s eye health.
Showering while wearing contact lenses is like swimming or sleeping with them in. This counts as one of the most common errors in proper lens care.
