  • If you are allergic to contact lenses, your eyes will easily complicated with inflammation, such as eye itching, redness and swelling when you first time to wear it. On the other hand, there are several people are not suitable for wear contact lenses. The first, somebody who often suffer from colds, because cold often accompanied with retinitis. Second, somebody who have eye disease, for example, such as keratitis and conjunctivitis, glaucoma, dry eyes. Third, the women who during pregnancy also recommended not to wear contact lenses.

  • Well, yes, it is normal to have blurry vision after you have taken a nap. As we know that after you have taken a nap, your blood pressure will be higher than normal. In that way, it will just affect your eyes, leading to high eye pressure. And then blurry vision can occur in your eyes. Anyway, you do not need to worry about it, and it can be fine in several minutes.

In other words, contact lenses can free you from some of the problems associated with eyeglasses. On the other hand, you should pay attention to your sweat which can do harm to the contact lenses.

  • To remove the eye bags, one can apply the olive oil over the lower eyelid and then pat the lower eyelid gently to help absorb the olive oil. Or you can soak a clean towel in the warm saline water, and then wring it, and put it onto your eyes for five to ten minutes. In addition, you should eat more foods that are high in antioxidants, such as fresh green leafy vegetables, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, walnut, etc. to prevent the skin cells from being destroyed by the free radicals. Of course, you should ensure enough sleep and you should sleep with an elevated pillow. The best amount of sleep is 8 hours every night.

  • Yes, I have heard of the vitreous detachment which could be happened often among people with high prescription and old people. It is such a serious problem. After vitreous from onset suddenly, patients' main symptoms are floaters and flashing lights. Sometimes you can see there are black ring. The doctor inspection can be found before optic disk and Weiss ring for senile. The vitreous degeneration cause is important to note. When you see black shadow flap and flashing lights, you should go to the hospital as soon as possible and have a full check on the eyes. Usually the surgery is such a safe and effective way to treat your vitreous detachment. You must cure it as soon as possible. Or else, you may risk the high possibility of getting blind.

  • The guide to the length of time contact lenses depends entirely upon what type of lenses you choose. The reason contact lenses need to be replaced is mainly because of infection and durability. Disposable lenses are made of very fine flexible plastic which can easily tear. Longer lasting lenses are stronger and more durable. Most soft contact lenses are replaced on a monthly schedule. They require simple cleaning and disinfection between uses and are removed at nighttime. And they have their own advantages. because these lenses are good for eye health and are available in most prescriptions. Yearly contact lenses are not commonly prescribed anymore. Because they are replaced less frequently, there are less comfortable, less breathable and increase chances of infection. So in my opinion, you'd better choose the monthly ones. Besides, no matter which kind of contacts you will choose. It's important for you to clean them frequently. only in this way can you protect your eyes.

  • It is not suggested to use them together and it would not make you recover more quickly. The redness are supposed dissipate after you use Tobramycin for a few days. Once the infection is cleared up, the redness would disappear soon. But you should use the drops following your doctor's instruction strictly.

  • No, it's dangerous to stare at the sun with your eyes closed. Many people say that exposure to sunlight has a number of health benefits including vitamin D production and improved mood. But on the other hand, the intensity of direct sunlight can do great damage to your eyes even when your eyes are closed. I suggest that you should always wear sunscreen on your skin and control your sun exposure. Only in this way, can you not damage your skin with harmful UV rays. Besides, you should also wear sunglasses which can protect your eyes from UV rays. Your eyes are protected from the damaging effects of the sun.

  • When your eyes get allergies, cells in your eyes will release histamine and other chemicals which cause your eye inflammation. As a result, you get itchy, red, and watery allergic eyes.

  • It will not damage your vision but it may cause uncomfortable vision .this will especially be the case if you have a high prescription. You can get prismatic effects with the wrong PD, depending on your prescription. This will especially be noticeable if your eyes are much different from each other.
