Points bothered? Let`s put on contact lenses!

In holiday days one lens unexpectedly tore, and it was necessary to get points … Waiting, until there take place holidays and specialized shops will open, again felt on herself “delights“ of carrying this inconvenient design on a face. I want to share personal experience.

I will make a reservation At once - my article for those who suffer from simple types of short-sightedness or far-sightedness with a small amount of dioptries. Cases when lenses are categorically contraindicated meet. Also children are not recommended to carry lenses. If you were interested in idea to remove points and to put on lenses, first of all, you have to go to the good oculist and consult whether you can carry them personally.

At first let`s learn what contact lenses happen. First of all, they share on soft and rigid.

Soft when carrying eyes take the form, it is simpler to pick up and put on them. Rigid lenses were invented before soft, from them, actually, and history of a new type of correction of sight began. Now they are successfully driven out of the elastichnye market by relatives, but there are cases when rigid lenses are strictly shown, it is solved by the doctor.

The main advantage of rigid lenses - they are more durable (till two years), and it is simpler to look after them. They do not react to changes of environment - do not dry up on wind or, for example, in the dry room. Rigid lenses personally I tried to wear all time, then passed on soft and many years I use them.

For years of use of this very convenient thing many types of soft lenses were tried. I will tell you into what types they are divided and what are most convenient in different cases.

1. Classification of lenses by the carrying mode

- the Long mode. Such lenses have an approximate warranty for half a year, during this time you carry them in the afternoon and remove for the night. In case you correctly look after them, did not tear and did not lose, they will serve to you year or a little more.

- Planned mode. Such lenses share on monthly and three-months. A direction of use they are you carry in the afternoon and you remove for the night - just they wear out quicker, taking into account a warranty period. I between two-week or three-months did not catch a difference, the only thing that the miscellaneous, is the price, exactly by the number of months. If you are a little inaccurate, often lose lenses, look after them not really carefully, then there is a sense to buy monthly lenses. I carry three-months and at careful leaving I manage “to stretch“ use term for a month.

- Lenses of frequent replacement. They have service life two weeks or week. Thinner, they can be not removed sometimes (as a last resort) for the night, but they wear out very quickly, accurately in time the guarantee. There is a sense them to buy if you have to change lenses, but yet there is no money on more expensive.

- One-day lenses are extraordinary convenient if there is no opportunity to look after them. Put on in the morning, in the evening removed and threw out. Perfectly are suitable, for example, for campaigns, travel in long distance trains, on a visit and anywhere if there are no conditions for their hygienic processing. The price of such lenses rather high - about 1 c.u. apiece. Used them few times when went with friends out of town, very conveniently, the only shortcoming - high price.

- The flexible, prolonged and continuous modes of carrying. It is a novelty in the industry of contact correction of sight. Such lenses can be not removed respectively two - three nights, week, month (in the description the deadline is specified), no negative influence on eyes will exist. Thin, convenient, but considerably differ from traditional in the price.

2. Classification to destination

- Optical. About them we also carry on conversation, we want to remove points! Lenses happen both for short-sighted, and for far-sighted.

- Cosmetic. Are used for correction of defects of an eye - for example to disguise turbidity of a cornea.

- Therapeutic - for treatment of various diseases, for example correction of an astigmatism. Also there are types applied as a bandage at protection of a cornea, to extension of the effect of drugs.

3. Division of lenses according to transparency

- Unpainted. Absolutely transparent, traditional.

- The storages tinted for convenience. Now began to let out lenses gently - blue color that they were easier to be got from the container.

- Ottenochnye. These are decorative lenses, they happen both for absolutely seeing, and to dioptries. They do initial color of your eyes is brighter or more dark.

- Decorative. With their help you can cardinally change color of your eyes on any, too happen as zero, and to dioptries. If you want to make interesting changes to the image, try to pick up such lenses, they are for every taste. By itself, they the most expensive of - for difficult manufacturing techniques.

- “Carnival“ - with amusing drawings, with effect of “the vampire`s eye“ and so on. It is not recommended to carry them often.

Also lenses differ on material of which are made, on the content in them of water, on transmittivity of oxygen. The expert will help to choose an optimal variant, the most important - all modern lenses at the correct selection are absolutely safe.

It is easy to look after lenses. All you need is, - the container and a small bottle of universal solution. Rather carefully to wash hands at putting on / removal of lenses and to do it accurately - and they will serve to you a full warranty period.

There are many any convenient and useful “lotions“ - the moistening drops, tweezers / sucker to get lenses from the container and to remove them, without touching an eye, various shampoos and solutions for processing.

If points to you are inconvenient or disturb if they just bothered you, you feel complexes at their carrying - can, it is time to think of lenses? I will repeat, to begin to carry lenses it is possible only after consultation with the expert.
