4 Contact Lens Problems and Ways Park Slope Eye Fixes Them

Book Appointment

Contact lenses address vision problems without the need for eyeglasses. Irritation, however, is a common problem for any contact lens wearer, and sometimes can be extreme. Here are four common contact lens problems and ways you can deal with them:

Contact Lens

  1. Blurred or cloudy vision – This happens when you wear dirty or damaged lenses. In other cases, you may have serious problems like macular degeneration or cataract. For tips on proper contact lens care, you should consult your eye doctor in Brooklyn, NY. They can also conduct a comprehensive exam to check for any eye-related disease.
  2. Dry eyes – Your soft contact lenses have varying amounts of water. When it evaporates, the lenses pull moisture from your eyes, resulting in dry eyes. Patients who have this type of eye problem are more prone to redness, burning sensation, and sticky lids. Make sure you schedule a consultation with Park Slope Eye to treat dry eyes immediately.
  3. Light sensitivity – Wearing your contact lenses too long can make your eyes more sensitive to light. It can also lead to corneal ulcers and corneal abrasions. You can prevent this by scheduling a regular eye exam with your Park Slope family eye care clinic.
  4. Redness and/or itchiness – Your contact lenses need regular maintenance before you can wear them to avoid any bacterial infection. Without proper care, irritants such as dust, pollen, and makeup can build up inside the lens and cause itchiness.

Your trusted Park Slope eye care specialist in our clinic can help you take care of your contact lenses. We also treat these issues to help you see better. We specialize in two types of contact lenses:

  • Scleral lenses – These lenses are larger than your normal contact lenses. They cover the white part of the eye for better vision and comfort. This also eliminates dirt buildup inside the lenses.
  • Orthokeratology lenses – These lenses gently reshape your corneas while you wear them overnight, resulting in clear vision the next day. This type of lens allows your eyes to breathe while in place, so it is safe to wear even while sleeping.
