Can I sleep with my contacts on?

Can I sleep with my contacts on? Leaving contact lenses in overnight may not seem like a big deal, but understanding the problems which this bad habit may cause will make the effort of removing and cleaning them seem well worthwhile! Almost two thirds of contact lens wearers said they would prefer to keep them in overnight if they could, so it is a common and convenient preference.   The Science Behind It As the body’s only form of transparent tissue, the cornea gets its oxygen solely from the air. That means that when you put in contact lenses, the oxygen supply lessens a bit, and when you close your eyes, the supply lessens more. When you combine the two, the oxygen can be critically...

Astigmatism – Debunked

Astigmatism - Debunked Astigmatism is a common type of refractive error that leads to blurred vision. Being a refractive error, it is not an eye disease or eye health problem - It's simply a problem with how the eye focuses light. In an eye with astigmatism, light fails to come to a single focus on the retina to produce clear vision. Instead, multiple focus points occur, either in front of the retina, behind it, or both. The light is bent differently depending on where it strikes the cornea and passes through the eyeball. What’s the difference? The cornea of a normal eye is curved like a basketball, with the same degree of roundness in all areas. An eye with astigmatism has a cornea that is...

What colour should I choose?

What colour should I choose? As everyone knows by now, coloured contact lenses have hit the market with a huge bang! Want blue eyes? Don’t worry – We can fix that! Contact lenses are moving away from the idea of correcting vision to that of being a fashion accessory. Now days, many people who are not short-sighted also wear coloured contact lenses to enhance their eyes. Colour contacts come in three kinds of tints: Visibility tint. This usually is a light blue or green tint added to a lens, just to help you see it better during insertion and removal, or if you drop it. Visibility tints are relatively faint and do not affect your eye color. Enhancement tint. This is a solid but see-through tint that...

Daily Disposable Contact Lenses

Daily Disposable Contact Lenses Daily disposable contact lenses are single-use lenses that are removed and thrown away at the end of each day. Did you know that the more frequently you replace your contact lenses, the healthier and more comfortable your eyes are? This is because protein, calcium, lipids and other substances found in tears will build up on the lenses. Over time, these substances will make the contact lenses less comfortable than when they were new, and can also make your eyes more prone to infection. As such, daily disposable lenses represent the ultimate in convenience and comfort for contact lens wearers.     Why Dailies? Convenience – With daily disposable lenses, there is no need for extensive cleaning procedures – yes I can hear the cheers!...

History 101: Contact Lenses

History 101: Contact Lenses History 101 : Ever wondered how contact lenses came about? Leonardo Da Vinci created a glass lens with a funnel on one side so that water could be poured into it. He believed that submerging the head in a bowl of water could alter vision. Amazingly enough, this was the first ever conceptualization of contact lenses. In case you were wondering, this is the reason they’re called “contact” lenses - Because they make direct contact with the surface of the eye. In 1960, Bausch & Lomb refined the technique of casting hydrogel, which produced consistent lens surfaces and a process for mass production. Then in 1998, Ciba Vision introduced silicone hydrogel contact lenses that featured extremely high oxygen permeability. Today’s best contact lenses...

If these fluids are not restored, the body will not have enough water to carry out its normal functions, including the eyes.   Drinking water not only benefits your body as a whole, but REALLY helps your eyes. Did you know that your eyeballs are organs? Water is essential for each of your organs to function, including your eyes! Water is a major constituent of our bodies and vital organs. So, what do our eyeballs really do with that water?   Water lubricates the eyes! Most of the eye is made of water and therefore it always...
