Debunking 4 Common Myths About Contact Lenses

Book Appointment

Poor eyesight can affect not only your daily activities but also your overall health. To help improve your vision, Park Slope Eye offers contact lenses in Brooklyn, NY. This corrective eyewear option offers comfort, convenience, and clearer eyesight.

Contact Lenses

Despite contact lenses being a great choice, false information makes others hesitant to use them. That’s why your trusted optometrist reveals the truth behind four common myths about them.

1. Contact Lenses are Difficult to Use and Maintain

They may be tricky to use at first. However, with constant practice and patience, you will eventually get the hang of it. Depending on your needs and lifestyle, we may prescribe a pair that requires less maintenance. For instance, daily disposable ones can be worn in the morning and then discarded at night. Frequent replacement lenses generally use only one type of solution for their cleaning and storage.

If you decide to purchase contact lenses at Park Slope Eye, we will go over with you the step-by-step process on putting them on and taking them out. We will also instruct you in detail about their cleaning and storage. We may also ask you to have a test run to ensure you are confident to use them. Before your leave our clinic, we will make sure to answer any questions you may have.

2. Contact Lenses Are Uncomfortable

Since the eye is a sensitive organ, your reliable eye doctor in Park Slope understands your apprehensions of trying on contact lenses, especially if it’s your first time. Nonetheless, after a brief adjustment period, you will not even notice that you are wearing them for most of the day. You can have greater peace of mind and enjoy the clarity of vision they offer.

3. Contact Lenses Can Cause Eye Infections

Most contact lens-induced infections stem from non-observance of proper hygiene when handling them. As long as you follow our instructions on their proper cleaning and storing, you have nothing to worry about.

4. Contact Lenses Can Easily Get Stuck in Your Eye

Most of the time, contact lens users have this sensation because their eyes have gone dry. You can easily address this by applying our recommended eye drops on your eyes.
